SkyCity complex gets new hotel resident

31 Aug 2008 by Ciprian Hirlea

It’s a view of the shimmering South China Sea or the Nine Eagles Executive Golf Course for guests of SkyCity Marriott Hotel that is set for a soft opening in a few weeks’ time.

The launch of this 658-room property brings closer to completion the airport-located Hongkong SkyCity, which also includes AsiaWorld-Expo and SkyPier. At 70,000 cubic metres of space, AsiaWorld is the largest exhibition venue in Hongkong, while SkyPier facilitates commuter travel between Hongkong and the Mainland by boat and ferry.

Besides catering to transit passengers, the Marriott’s room inventory, large by Hongkong standards, can lodge exhibitors attending shows at AsiaWorld. A footbridge links both buildings, while a car park separates the hotel from Terminal 2. According to general manager Bob Jensch, there is every possibility to host concertgoers watching shows at AsiaWorld, and having the chain’s branded Quan Spa on the premises opens up the local weekend market.

The conference sector is likewise a prime target of the hotel, which features 1,300sqm of meeting space. For families and groups visiting Disneyland, the park is less than a 20-minute ride away, while the Citygate Outlet Mall and Giant Buddha/Ngong Ping Cable Car attractions are also nearby.
