From the moment we walked in, we knew it was going to be a beautiful hotel.
The entryway has an epic glass spiral staircase, but perhaps our favorite part about the lobby is the indoor wall garden that spans across three stories.
The indoor garden is used to help keep the interior of the lobby cool during the hottest hours of the day, as well as increase the oxygen levels of the inside of the hotel.
We were greeted at check-in and escorted to the 28th floor for our room and information about the Above & Beyond club & lounge. During check-in, we were offered coffees – I don’t know what I was expecting, but it was absolutely delicious, and I found myself raving about it for the rest of the afternoon. [And waking up in the morning the next day, that coffee was the first thing on my mind!]
After learning about the hotel’s amnesties and the details of the Above & Beyond club, such as complimentary breakfast, cocktails, and hors d’oeuvres, we were escorted to our room, the Club 36 Harbour View, on the 26th floor. We knew that Hotel ICON had great views, but what we were met with left us breathless.
Golden afternoon sunlight streamed in through the wide window overlooking the city. From its place on the shores of Kowloon, you would be hard-pressed to find a better vantage point of sunset behind the skyline.
The weather was perfect when we arrived, and of course we wanted to explore the city, but the height and location from our room in Hotel ICON provided such an exclusive skyline view that it was truly the ideal place for watching the sun set behind the city.
Here are some details and our favorite parts about our stay with Hotel ICON.
Smart phone with unlimited wifi, international calls, and all the applications you might need, complete with a portable powerbank. This was beyond useful, and meant we didn’t have to spend the data on our phone’s SIM card to figure out directions. Instead, we were free to wander around the city in any direction, with no worries about finding our way right back to the hotel.
Free minibar stocked with all kinds of delicious beverages restocked daily.
Espresso machine in-room.
Complimentary laundry service.
Printer & office supplies for getting down to work.
Access to the premier Above & Beyond club and lounge is one of the most incredible parts of Hotel ICON. The interior is high-class and decorated with modern art pieces. Access to the club provides complimentary coffee, tea, and soft drinks, as well as access to breakfast buffets, afternoon tea, and evening cocktails with hors d’oeuvres!
Located directly on the Kowloon peninsula, right across the harbor looking toward Hong Kong Island. You can take a brief walk to the Garden of the Stars, and down the promenade along Victoria Harbor. This walk will take you right along the water’s edge and will give you amazing views of Hong Kong island. We recommend taking this journey during the late evening after the sun has gone down, as the lights from the skyscrapers on Hong Kong island light up the bay with remarkable colors.
Paintings and other works from local artists are displayed throughout the hotel, adding to the unique, modern vibes of the hotel. There are wide glass windows on every floor, at the ends of the hallways, so you can see views of the city of Hong Kong in any direction.
