There are 503 rooms including 87 suites, two thirds of which have that enviable view of Victoria Harbour. There are 3 signature suites which includes the prestigious 5 bedroom Presidential Suite (Hong Kong’s largest at 7,000 square metres) which has a huge outdoor patio and rooftop infinity pool overlooking Victoria Harbour (and has even been used as a movie set).
Our Executive Room room has direct views over Victoria Harbour, in fact we’re so close that it feels like we could step through our window, right into the water. By day we can watch the water glistening with sunshine, eagles fishing and soaring and boats of all sizes chugging along the busy waterway. By night, the skyline is illuminated, with Hong Kong Island’s skyscrapers producing a light show that is captivating and impressive; a neon display of the city’s importance in the global business world.
As we complete our in-room check in, we notice the complimentary smart phone, part of the InterContinental Hong Kong’s ‘I’m Free, I’m Handy’ initiative which allows guests to stay connected during their stay. We are gifted unlimited 3G, free local and international calls as well as travel tips and maps that come in handy. But, and here’s that excellent InterContinental service again, we also receive a 3 page print out of vegetarian and vegan friendly restaurants (to suit all budgets) making sure we won’t go hungry when we’re out exploring.
Elsewhere in the hotel, there’s everything you’d expect from a top end 5 star hotel, outdoor pool (the largest outdoor pool in Hong Kong with 3 infinity spa pools all with different temperatures), a beautiful Feng Shui designed spa offering a range of treatments (see below in the Vegan Essentials section), a business centre as well as several award winning dining outlets.
