7 Oct 2015 by Clement Huang

ASCOTT MACAU

NUMBER OF ROOMS 110

OPENED September 2015

LOCATION R. Cidade de Braga, Nape, Macau

RECOMMENDED CLIENTELE Those seeking a private and homely feel; away from the typically busy “casino hotels”

INFO Having just opened last month (see here), the Ascott Macau marks The Ascott Limited’s (Ascott) entry into the Macau market. Unlike the majority of Ascott’s offerings, this hotel isn’t a serviced residence targeting long-stay clients, but rather a property that offers a highly residential feel. Every guestroom comes with a fully equipped kitchen – a key differentiator between it and other properties.

LOCATION Mongkok, Hong Kong

RECOMMENDED CLIENTELE Boasting an excellent location popular with both tourists and locals, Cordis Hong Kong is the perfect choice for staycation lovers.

INFO Cordis Hong Kong took over from the previous Langham Place Mongkok back in August (see here), and has been a rousing success so far. Having invested over HK$35 million (US$4.5 million) in acquiring more than 1,500 contemporary Chinese art pieces, and placing these on the walls and public spaces of the hotel, Cordis Hong Kong is determined to forge its own distinct character and identity. The design philosophy seen in the Hong Kong hotel will influence all subsequent Cordis properties worldwide.
