Newly Opened Harbour Grand Hong Kong Joins Summit Hotels & Resorts

Summit Hotels & Resorts, a brand of Preferred Hotel Group, is pleased to announce its newest member in Hong Kong - Harbour Grand Hong Kong. The collection includes more than 150 internationally acclaimed hotels and resorts that celebrate local luxury.

Situated on the waterfront in the heart of Hong Kong Island's commercial and shopping district near Causeway Bay, Harbour Grand Hong Kong is a five minute walk to the convenient subway MTR system. A number of striking Swarovski chandeliers, some of the largest in Hong Kong, welcome guests as soon as they step into the hotel's oval-shaped lobby, complemented by Art Nouveau elements.

Just opened in June 2009, all 828 contemporary designed guest rooms feature stunning views of the world-renowned Victoria Harbour. Selected rooms even have private patios with heated Jacuzzis to enjoy the view. The five restaurants and lounges offer an exquisite dining experience with the backdrop of the spectacular Hong Kong harbour. The signature Le 188° Restaurant & Lounge offers a 188-degree view of the harbour, Hong Kong Island and Kowloon from the top level of the hotel.

Boasting 12,685 square feet of meeting and function facilities, the hotel prides itself with the 6,200 square feet pillar-less Grand Ballroom that can accommodate up to 600 guests. The seven function rooms are flexible with adjustable partitions and all feature more dazzling floor-to ceiling windows offering sea views. Recreational facilities include a state-of-the-art Fitness Centre as well as a 27-metre outdoor heated swimming pool, Jacuzzi, children's pool, and spa.

"The worldwide famous harbour views of Hong Kong which are guaranteed in every guest room and throughout the hotel will certainly be one of its crucial selling points in addition to the wonderful hotel product and Hong Kong's five star service. Harbour Grand Hong Kong is a great addition to our portfolio for all markets, whether it be business, leisure or MICE," said Mark Simmons, Area Managing Director, Asia.

Benedict Chow, General Manager adds, "As a new luxury hotel, Harbour Grand will need to gain exposure internationally and I believe Summit Hotels & Resorts is the perfect business partner to help us build market awareness and reach the global audience."
