Hong Kong is prized for its city skyline, and we are always on the lookout for hotels with unobstructed views of the Harbour – Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel has just been added to our list because we had a very memorable stay there recently.
Sitting in the heart of Wan Chai district – one of our favourite places to stay at when in Hong Kong - Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel is a part of the Marriott group, with a strategic waterfront location that overlooks the Harbour on the Kowloon side. Renaissance Hong Kong Harbour View Hotel may not be the most posh hotel in Hong Kong, but it is no less popular among business travellers and tourists.
We cannot quite put a finger to Wan Chai when we first set foot in that neighbourhood. It is bustling like many other areas in Hong Kong, but for the lack of a better description – Wan Chai is quite distinctly Hong Kong. Forget about how people discount Wan Chai for its red light district (because it is really just one lane that you can easily miss), because there is so much more to look out for.
We love Wan Chai for its little gems and unexpected finds – comfort Hong Kong cuisine in humble settings, locals peddling their wares and arts, executives loosening their ties to unwind over a good lunch… and all these make up Hotel Indigo.
A relatively new baby in the local hotel scene, Hotel Indigo Hong Kong Island is everything Wan Chai is. It reflects snippets of its characteristic neighbourhood, and this is precisely what Hotel Indigo wants to create, so that guests feel blended in to the local culture, and locals resonate with the comforting familiarity.
