DETAILED DECRIPTION

Opened in 2009, Hong Kong’s hip and luxurious Upper House is the sister hotel of Beijing’s Opposite House. Occupying floors 38 to 49 of the Pacific Place tower in Admiralty, Upper House was designed by architect Andre Fu, dubbed by Conde Nast Traveler as an “Asian design sensation.” His meticulous design is intended to evoke the intimacy and tranquility of a private home high above the hectic city. Each of the hotel’s 117 rooms, including 21 suites and two penthouses, has a dramatic harbour view or city view. Amenities in every room include an iPod Touch with custom music playlists, hotel and area information; 42-inch LCD TVs with surround sound, video-on-demand and PC, camcorder and MP3 connectivity; and choice of broadband or wireless Internet. On the property’s 49th floor, Café Gray Deluxe is helmed by chef Gray Kunz, featuring a 46-foot-long open kitchen and bar of the same length, as well as a private dining room for up to 12. Upper House’s atrium presents a 10-storey sculpture by Hiroshiwata Sawada, and each room’s decor includes a unique sandstone sculpture by Marvin Mintofang. There is also a gym with cardiovascular and weight-training equipment. Upper House is approximately 40 minutes from Chek Lap Kok International Airport.
