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.
