Accor surpasses 100,000 rooms in Asia-Pacific region

11 Sep 2012 by BusinessTraveller

French hotel group Accor now offers over 100,000 rooms in the Asia-Pacific region, with the opening of the Ibis Hong Kong Central and Sheung Wan hotel.

The property features 550 rooms and is located in the centre of Hong Kong’s Western and Central districts. Sheung Wan metro station and Macau Ferry terminal are a short walk away from the hotel, which is a 40-minute taxi ride from Hong Kong International Airport.

It is one of the first hotels in the region to feature the new Ibis brand identity, which promises a ‘bright, fresh design’ to appeal to its growing number of independent leisure travellers in the region.

The hotel offers complimentary wifi throughout the property, in line with the group’s recent commitment to provide free internet access across its Asia-Pacific properties (see online news August 20).

Facilities include a 24-hour bar, an eight-hour breakfast service beginning at 4:30 am, and a 15-minute satisfaction promise given to all customers for requests they make at the front desk.

Rooms feature air-conditioning, ensuite bathrooms, coffee and tea making facilities, timber flooring, bay windows and high ceilings.

The hotel’s Taste restaurant features a variety of local and international cuisine, an all-day dining menu, and an international breakfast buffet.

Accor is the largest international hotel operator in Asia-Pacific, with its portfolio of hotel brands including Sofitel, Mercure, and Novotel. The company’s Ibis brand family was relaunched last year to accommodate its economy segment of customers (see online news June 22).
