What’s it like?
The flagship property of Langham Hotels International is a five-star, yet understated hotel with excellent service. It was recently admitted to The Leading Hotels of the World, and manages to retain its distinctive character while hosting different design concepts, from the grand lobby to its modern bedrooms and several themed restaurants.
Where is it?
On Peking Road in the heart of Kowloon, only a few minutes from the Star ferry and Mass Transit Railway, and 40 minutes from Chek Lap Kok Airport.
The 462 rooms and 26 suites all have air-conditioning, satellite TV and pay-movies, complimentary international newspaper, desk area, voice mail and broadband internet connection. They are functional, without being spectacular, rather like the hotel itself.

Use of a boardroom plus free pressing and laundry services are also available.
Fully-equipped, with services including photocopying, notary and accounting , word processing, interpretation and translation and secretarial services.
Bars and restaurants:
Four outstanding restaurants. T’ang Court is a well respected Chinese restaurant (book well ahead); the Bostonian serves American food and has an impressive seafood buffet; Sun’s Café has buffet food from 6am until 1am; while Main Street Deli is a faithful and vibrant recreation of New York’s 2nd Avenue Deli.
Special packages starting from HK$1450 (£105), including breakfast are available until March 2005.
