Ibis Hong Kong Central & Sheung Wan ('ibis Sheung Wan') will mark its first anniversary this October as it taps into the social media sphere to create market buzz among worldwide travellers, the Sheung Wan community, travel & lifestyle bloggers and online socialistas.

Officially opened for business on 24 October, 2012, the 550-room ibis Sheung Wan has been welcoming more than 270,000 guests from all over the world including 10,000 more Le Club Accorhotels members, the loyalty program run by Accor. In terms of business performance, the Hotel's year-to-date occupancy rate has reached an average of 88% in 2013 (as of 31 August, 2013) with average room rate superseding the industry benchmark by 7.5% within the same hotel category reflected from the Hong Kong Hotels Association hotel performance statistics.

Located in the bustling Sheung Wan showcasing a unique mix of urban landscape and Hong Kong heritage, ibis Sheung Wan becomes a catchy icon shining all the way through.  Less than a year's lifespan, the Hotel has scooped three awards namely Best Mid-range City Hotel of China by The 8th China Hotel Starlight Awards, Highly Commended in New Hotel Construction & Design by The International Hotel Awards 2013 as well as Design Excellence in Hotel Architecture by HA+D Awards 2012. "These accolades are in fact good complements to deliver our brand promise 'well-being at the best price' in a consistent way. Looking ahead, we will make every attempt to deliver highest possible level of service whilst maximizing profit for our owner.  Approaching our first anniversary, team members' dedication to their work is much appreciated, and of course the collaboration support from our partners like iVenture Card Asia, G.O.D., Hong Kong Family Welfare Society, Pacificlink and Base Creative etc. are all worth our big applause," said Warren Tam, General Manager of ibis Hong Kong Central & Sheung Wan Hotel.

As a kick-off of the first anniversary campaign, a tactical promotion features an exceptional 3-day-2-night Stay.See.Savour package at HK$2,798 for two persons booked from 16 September to 18 October, 2013 for the stay during October, 2013.  The package is inclusive of two nights' free-upgraded accommodation to Harbour View Room, daily buffet breakfast for two and two iVenture Card each access to two local attractions. Check out 'Time to Celebrate' package via, or make a reservation through Accor's worldwide call centre directly. Moreover, to reward our loyalty program members of Le Club Accorhotels, a 100 bonus points incentive will be given away for free each stayed night and the maximum of 500 bonus points per stay for a five-night stay or more, for the same booking period and staying period specified above.

Key highlight of the anniversary campaign goes to the inaugural social media campaign with blogger endorsement for Sheung Wan's hip, hot spots, be they designer brands, niche products or mouth-watering eateries. Campaign app tab, social ads, hyperlinks, tweets and posts are intertwined to engage with fans on Facebook, Sina Weibo, Twitter and WeChat.  By participating in the campaign, fans will then stand a chance to win fabulous prizes including hotel stay, dinner buffet, house wine, ibis x G.O.D. souvenir, etc.

Being a socially responsible hotel, ibis Sheung Wan endeavours to contribute to the Central & Sheung Wan community and serve the needy. In this regard, a green buffet lunch will be hosted on 5 October, 2013 at TASTE, the Hotel's restaurant, where 17 low-income families with kids (referred by Hong Kong Family Welfare Society) are served by our team members being the volunteers wherein funny games and cartoons will be featured in the scope of green and sustainable dining concept under the theme 'Celebration in Green'.

What's happening in the Hotel on our anniversary week from 21 to 25 October, 2013, hotel visitors and guests will be invited to capture their best comfy moment at a specially-designed photo booth and right next to it our chef will be making fluffy cotton candy as freebies at the Ground Floor Lobby.
