Travel News Asia Friday, 18 August 2006

Marriott International has been chosen to manage what will ultimately be a 1,000-room hotel at the Hong Kong International Airport under an agreement reached with Union Sky Holdings Limited, a partnership between Shun Tak Holdings Limited and Dragages Hong Kong Limited. When opened in the second half of 2008, the hotel will be Marriott Internationals fifth hotel in Hong Kong.

The Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel will be part of SkyCity, which is a large mixed-use complex that has been planned by the Hong Kong Airport Authority adjacent to the terminal of the Hong Kong International Airport. In addition to the hotel, SkyCity will include AsiaWorld-Expo, an exhibition center and arena with more than 70,000 square meters of rentable space (expandable to 100,000 square meters) that opened late last year; SkyPlaza, a complex adjacent to the airport terminal offering approximately 68,000 square meters of office, retail and entertainment facilities; SkyPier, which will provide ferry service to Macau and other destinations in the Pearl River Delta; and a nine-hole golf course.

The hotel will be situated on the waterfront and will offer views of the South China Sea. Its location will also be very convenient for both Hong Kong residents and visitors, as the hotel will be located within a short drive of Hong Kong Disneyland and will be easily accessible to Hong Kongs central business district via an approximately 25-minute ride on an express train. The hotel will be built in two stages, with 658 rooms opening in the first phase and the remaining 342 rooms opening in the second phase. Construction on the first phase of the hotel is expected to begin later this year.

"Hong Kong is one of the world's great cities. It is a vibrant financial and commercial center in Asia and is one of the world's most attractive destinations for conferences and incentive travel. We share the vision of Shun Tak, Dragages and the Hong Kong Airport Authority regarding the future success of the SkyCity mixed-use complex, and we are very excited to be a part of this project and the rapid development taking place today at the Hong Kong  International Airport," said Ed Fuller, president and managing director of international lodging at Marriott. 

While the design for the Hong Kong SkyCity Marriott Hotel has not yet been finalized, the hotel is expected to offer the following facilities:

For accommodations: spacious guest rooms featuring Marriotts new bedding package and latest in-room technology, an executive club lounge with private meeting rooms, and a private lounge for airline crews.

For dining: three restaurants to include an all-day dining room featuring an open display kitchen and a private dining room, a specialty restaurant with a private dining room, and a Champions sports bar.

For recreation and entertainment: a lobby lounge featuring open views of the South China Sea, an indoor swimming pool, and a health club and spa featuring a gym, treatment rooms, saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and changing rooms.

For conferences and social events: 1,130 square meters of meeting space, including a 650-square-meter ballroom that will be divisible into three sections, three 120-square-meter meeting rooms, and two 60-square-meter board rooms.

The hotel will also have a business center and retail shops.
