St. Regis Hotels & Resorts debuts in Hong Kong
The St. Regis Hong Kong is officially open in the district of Wan Chai.
It marks the group’s first property in the destination, as well as parent company Marriott International’s 7,000 opening.
The 27-storey hotel features 129 guestrooms and suites with butler service, as well as a heated swimming pool, a poolside bar and a health club and treatment room.
Two fine dining concepts are on offer for both hotel guests and the public.
French haute restaurant L’Envol is headed up by chef Olivier Elzer, who has accrued 18 Michelin stars throughout his career.
The hotel’s signature Cantonese restaurant, Rùn, is led by renowned chef Hung Chi-Kwong.
Marriott's global growth strategy follows the acquisition of Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide in 2016, enabling it to place a renewed focus on the luxury hotel sector.
In March, the group announced plans to add 1,700 hotels globally by 2021.
“It’s thrilling to open our 7,000th property, an incredible milestone for a company that began as a nine-stool root beer stand in 1927 and didn’t even open its first hotel until decades later,” said Arne Sorenson, Marriott's president and chief executive officer.
“I can’t think of a more fitting property to hold the honour than The St. Regis Hong Kong which underscores the benefits of our merger with Starwood, the importance of luxury and the tremendous opportunity in Asia.”
