Wherever I go on a trip,  although I constantly dream of distant lands to escape from my daily routine, ( not so boring anyways) believe it or not, I also like to feel at home away from home.

The  hotel I pick is always of an unpaired importance. Goes without saying that the geographic location and the success of the trip will be tremendously influenced by the hotel choice.

And , in Hong kong this morning   starting by the Lexus RX450H hybrid car  equipped with complimentary WiFi on board  upon arrival  at the luxury Upeer House boutique hotel in Pacific Place  I  feel  totally like a Bond Girl away from home!

I am now welcomed by a paperless ’arrival experience’  for my  check in by  the very pretty Pubic Relation Manager  Michelle Lau  who holding a last version  iPad®  containing my  full information and preferences invites me for a drink in ac harming outdoor secret garden on Level 6  called  " The Loan Bar "  to enjoy a garden snacks in lush green surroundings, for a relaxing respite under Hong Kong skyline.

Equipped with the latest technology The Upper House,  the latest Swire Hotels’ new Hong Kong hotel, is making sure I am escorted and connected with streamlined guest service through modern devices throughout the hotel as If I was not James Bond's by the president's girl.

My check in out of the way, I am invited to visit the Sky Lounge  , in my opinion,  the most cozy , warm and inviting lounge in Hong Kong featuring a central fireplace is open day and night on Level 49, where aware of the importance in the digital age to keep guests connected the hotel provides complimentary wired and wireless high speed internet  as a public area.

 The Upper House sits above Pacific Place, Hong Kong’s premier integrated commercial, retail and hospitality complex. Conveniently located in the heart of Hong Kong’s business district, the hotel is just 40 minutes away from the airport and within walking distance of many tourist attractions.  Admiralty MTR, buses routes and other transportation are all close by too.

 On my way to my room now, surrounded by the most beautiful works of art, I am assured that I will be able to use their Express departure service  is a feature that enables guests to leave without the usual formalities. Copies of guest bills along with final credit card settlement, is sent via email on the day of departure. Love it right? Better to see the bill when you fall into your daily reality and let you enjoy fully your stay without worries.
Thank you God for letting me feel at home far away fro home!
