WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

History: Constructed in 1928, at the height of British power and influence over the Far East, the Peninsula Hong Kong is an evocative, landmark hotel that is a prime example of British colonial architecture.

Location: Because of its location, the Peninsula offers prime views of nearby Victoria Harbour and the skyline of Hong Kong Island; in addition, it sits within walking distance to prime shopping and sights, particularly the landmark Star Ferry.

Tradition: One of its signature experiences is afternoon tea in its grand Lobby, a splendid relic of Hong Kong's colonial past.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

The iconic Peninsula Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui has been hosting dignitaries and other well-heeled travelers to Hong Kong since 1928 when it was deemed "the finest hotel east of Suez" Guests can stay in the classic structure still standing from that time, or in a room in the 30-story tower rising over the original hotel with sweeping views of Hong Kong Island and Victoria Harbour. There are 300 sumptuous rooms and eight restaurants, which are some of the best in the city: Spring Moon for Cantonese, Gaddi's for French, Felix for contemporary international cuisine, and the Lobby for afternoon tea, a Hong Kong institution. The ground floor and first floor constitute the Peninsula Shopping Arcade filled with boutiques offering the world's finest luxury items. The Peninsula Spa is another "must-do" on guests' itineraries, and the property's wellness facilities also include a fully equipped fitness center and indoor pool with sauna. The hotel is also distinguished by its fleet of signature Rolls Royces, painted in a distinctive hue known as "Peninsula green" and which guests may hire. The property is an hour away from Chek Lap Kok airport (HKG).
