The Novotel Century Hong Kong in Wanchai has
completed the transformation of its lobby.
The innovative new lobby is both bright and
spacious, and the presence of preserved moss on the green wall and
natural lighting gives it a tranquility not commonly found in hotel
The large touch-screen acts as virtual
concierge, and is set inside the decorative wall made of timber
slats which bridges the gap between technology and human
The new virtual concierge is designed to
assist guests with real-time flight details, weather, tourist
hotspots and popular restaurants in Wanchai, transportation
options and hotel details.
Guests can interact with the virtual
concierge, collecting details about the attractions nearby.
Enquire after the weather at each location in order to plan
accordingly for the outing of choice. Distinguish which metro or
bus stop is best to reach the selected destination or allow the
concierge to calculate the distance and time by taxi.
“One of the key elements that we’ve created is
the new central seating feature, which was designed to forge a
social interaction,” said Mr. Farrell, Executive Director of Aedas
The furniture in the lobby was developed
with the notion of connecting people and encouraging conversation.
Visitors can either sit at the long wooden bench located in the
middle of the lobby, or recline on one of the exclusive cushions
designed to mimic the appearance of boulders.
The black slate-like appearance of the reception
desks adds to the natural theme, with the independent stations
having been designed so that the hotel staff can serve the guests
on a much more personal and accessible level.
