The Intercontinental Hong Kong has one of the best room views that I’ve ever seen. Conveniently located at Victoria Harbour, getting here from the Airport is a simple train & taxi ride away. The Harbour Rooms at the Intercontinental Hong Kong are a must when staying at this property for at least one day, so that you can also watch the light show that starts at 8pm. I used 2 free nights from my IHG account to book this property, and paid for a Room Upgrade and Club Access. Be prepared to pay upwards of $500.00 SGD for the cheapest room here as Hong Kong is a very expensive country to begin with.
As a Spire Ambassador of the IHG Group, I was able to enjoy the following benefits. The 30% discount came in handy when negotiating for a paid upgrade and club access. The welcome gift was a bag of Jasmine Tea. I did not receive a complimentary room upgrade as this was a non-qualifying free stay.
The Harbour Room isn’t spacious, but its definitely well maintained and decorated with oriental charm. Fresh fruit platter is offered as an Ambassador amenity, and bottles of Evian water which I remembered only ever receiving in my Ambassador Suite @ Intercontinental Singapore.
Many hotel rooms in Hong Kong provide this “Handy” phone for your usage free of charge. This is one reason why I did not buy a Hong Kong sim card. I used this phone to find dining options and navigate easily through a country I’ve only just been to.
Being a club room, the bathroom amenities are upgraded to Salvatore Ferragamo which I found really high quality and great smelling.
Breakfast also included any ala-minute orders free of charge, one of the items on the menu is a minute steak which I ordered. This would have cost $30.00 SGD alone if I had to pay for it. Overall, it’s definitely worth to pay for club access and harbour view room at this iconic hotel (at least once!) which has one of the best views available of the Victoria Harbour.
