The Overview

Opened on December 11, 1928, The Peninsula has built its reputation on the finest traditions of service and hospitality, while the 30-story extension that opened in December 1994 has since combined the hotel's heritage with the very best in modern facilities for the business and leisure traveler.

The tower rises from within the site of the original hotel in an area that was previously the rear podium. The extension added 132 rooms and suites for a total of 300 and includes 10 floors of prime office space, shops and a range of hotel facilities, among them a swimming pool and sun terrace, state-of-the-art fitness center, The Peninsula Spa by ESPA, a business center, banquet and meeting rooms, and Felix, a rooftop restaurant with panoramic views of the city created by renowned French architect and designer Philippe Starck.

On the roof of the tower, twin helipads offer hotel guests quick and easy access by helicopter to the airport and destinations around the territory. This facility is served by a separate elevator and features the China Clipper, a private lounge with reception and communications center.

The Location

Located on Salisbury Road, Tsim sha tsui, overlooking Victoria Harbour, The Peninsula is right in the heart of Kowloon's business, shopping and entertainment district. Access to Hong Kong's Mass Transit Railway subway system (MTR) is less than one minute's walk from the hotel, enabling guests to travel around the city, the New Territories and into China. The iconic Star Ferry, a more leisurely way to reach Hong Kong Island, is a five-minute walk from the hotel, and Chek Lap Kok International Airport is only a 40-minute drive away.

The Room

To the original guest rooms, including the Marco Polo Suite, the tower has added a further 132 rooms and suites (including rooms with facilities for disabled guests), bringing the total to 300.

Among the most spacious in Hong Kong, all rooms and suites are furnished to the highest standards of luxury in a fresh classic European style. Subtle Asian influences are reflected in the rich fabrics which follow a varying theme of deep blue or green, gold and ivory. All rooms and suites enjoy the added advantage of the most advanced hotel technology available today.
