The JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong is getting itself a facelift with revamped rooms, two new suites and a repurposed executive lounge.
Renovation work on the Admiralty district hotel’s rooms and suites is being conducted in stages, with all 608 rooms and suites expected to reopen by the end of next month. Some rooms and suites have already been overhauled and are available to book.
Among the main enhancements being made to rooms is the addition of seven-layer mattresses on the beds (guests also get a choice of six different pillows). Meanwhile, the hotel will no longer offer smoking rooms and the hotel is set to become a non-smoking hotel.
The most flashy improvements to the accommodations at the JW Marriott are in its two new suites, the Hong Kong Suite and Bauhinia Suite on levels 33 and 34, respectively. These will join the hotel’s existing Dynasty and Admiralty Suites and offer a number of luxury elements such as walk-in closets.
Executive Room and Suites guests, along with Marriott Rewards members now also have access to a new Executive Lounge offering, which opened in June.
Described by the hotel as having undergone a “major transformation”, the revamped lounge is actually more of a repurposing of the hotel’s restaurant Flint on the fifth floor. While largely reserved for executive guests, Flint is open for lunch for non-club guests.
Among the food and beverage options available in the lounge are classic milk tea and the hotel’s signature lychee drink. However, guests at the lounge will be offered food from a number of the hotel’s restaurants, including barbecued pork from Man Ho Chinese Restaurant and shrimp wonton noodles from The Lounge during evening cocktail hours.
Breakfast as well as evening hors d’oeuvres – served at the residential kitchen in the centre of the lounge – are available. Weekly wine-tasting and cocktail sessions presented by Bar Q88’s celebrity mixologists will also be available exclusively for lounge guests.
Other facilities open to lounge guests include two meeting rooms, and coffee and wine stations.
“We are beyond excited to unveil this new phase of the hotel, and present to our guests a revitalised staying experience with our brand new guestrooms and Executive Lounge,” said Mark Conklin, the hotel’s general manager.
“This project is at the perfect timing as we celebrate our 30th anniversary next year, it shows how we strive to offer our guests fresh and inspiring ideas for each and every one of their stays continuously throughout the past three decades.”
