City Style: The Peninsula Hong Kong

  • The Peninsula Hong Kong
<< Back to Home & Style, May 2014

    Opened in 1928, the grande dame of the city’s hotel scene marries old-world charm, such as the neoclassical arches in the vast lobby (where afternoon tea is a Hong Kong institution), with the latest in 21st-century technology and design. Wireless tablets in the 300 rooms and suites control everything from lighting to music and video selections. Guests willing to stray from the hotel’s elegantly modern accommodations can partake of its Peninsula Academy art program; activities include being chauffeured in a Mini Clubman to the areas of Fo Tan or Wong Chuk Hang for face-to-face discussions with artists in residence. +852.2920.2888, hongkong.peninsula.com
