Travel News Asia 7 February 2003

The Great Eagle Hotels sumptuous Langham Suites have been ranked among the worlds Top 10 High-tech Hotel Rooms by the influential British newspaper, The Sunday Times.

The Great Eagle, together with the spectacular Burj al Arab in Dubai, are the only hotels in the Middle East/Asia to be ranked in the exclusive survey.

The six stylish suites, a new highlight at the Great Eagle in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong have just been acclaimed by The Sunday Times for being one of the few with en-suite, broadband internet access, 37 plasma TV and DVD surround-sound home theatre.

The Langham Suites are named after Londons legendary Langham Hotel (now The Langham Hilton) and part of a substantial upgrade and refurbishment of the Great Eagles Club Floor.

They are designed as a contemporary reflection of the golden years of grand British hospitality typified by the Langham Hotel, which dates back to 1865 and has the same owners as the Great Eagle Hotel, Langham Hotels International Ltd.

Like the Langham Hotel, the Great Eagles Langham Suites are designed to capture the grace and elegance of two great Victorian institutions: the country house and the private club. The two also share a reputation for cutting-edge technology: the Langham Hotel was the first hotel in the world to feature elevators.

The Great Eagles Langham Suites combine this classical, private club atmosphere on the new-look Club Floor with cutting-edge technological innovation to create a dream home away from home.

The suites also feature The Great Eagles new signature yume beds, the most comfortable king-sized beds in Hong Kong. The name yume is Japanese for dream.

Centrally located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, the independently managed Great Eagle offers an elegant European-style opulence with a contemporary twist and is rapidly becoming the preferred choice for discerning travellers  from the fashion and entertainment industries.

Langham Hotels International Ltd. owns a number of prestigious international hotels including The Langham Hilton in London, Sheraton Towers Southgate in Melbourne, Le Meridien Boston, Delta Chelsea Hotel in Toronto and the Sheraton Auckland Hotel and Towers.

In Hong Kong, the company also owns The Eaton Hotel, Eaton House Furnished Apartments and Yat Tung Heen Chinese Restaurants.
