The Regent Hong Kong hotel, ex-InterContinental, is opening soon

IHG is, finally, starting to get some momentum behind the tiny Regent luxury hotel chain it acquired in 2018.

We knew from Day 1 that InterContinental Hong Kong would reopen as a Regent after its refurbishment. This hotel was originally built as a Regent and there is a second InterContinental in Hong Kong so it was a no-brainer to swap back.

The bars and restaurants at Regent Hong Kong are now open. The rooms are bookable from 17th March although only standard rooms will be available in the first phase.

Some of the images so far seem a bit, well, dull, but if you have a room overlooking the harbour – with floor to ceiling windows – you won’t care. The photo above is my wife looking out from a Junior Suite in 2017.

You can find out more, and book, here. I can’t see any availability for IHG One Rewards points loaded yet.

We are also expecting an official opening date for Regent Cannes, the ex-InterContinental Carlton, in the coming days. Bookings are already available for later in the year and rates are punchy to put it mildly. The rooms do look good, with many in a brand new extension behind the existing building.

    Code not valid (AF) at 07.35 Doha time

  • Steve says:

    For the Regent Hong Kong, more room choices become available from 01 July (which is HKSAR Establishment Day and could see the return of fireworks in the harbour in front of the hotel).

    • Damien says:

      Used to always go here for Chinese New Year. If you book a seat in the lounge, buffet or restaurant and you can just head out the back for the fireworks. Expensive… usually with a few 8’s in the price for luck… but the queues for the fireworks are mental.

      • will says:

        I had a very memorable Chinese New Year there also a few years back. From memory I managed to get a room with a AMB BOGO weekend cert and they bumped me up to an exec room looking over the harbor, fireworks were incredible.

        Sadly HK is off the list now personally due to CCP being CCP.

  • u07ch says:

    The HK Regent must be in high demand the rates are 2-3x the old prices and 50% more than the HK Ritz Carlton.

  • Pj92 says:

    Both AF and KLM codes are already dead. They weren’t working late last night. OT does anyone know a way of getting ITA Airlines status recognised with AF/KLM at time of booking rather than on day of travel?

  • Richie says:

    I hope @Rhys gets an invite to the Regent Cannes re-opening party.

    • Rob says:

      I’ll be nicking that one off him if it comes in!

      • will says:

        Only on HfP could the potential for coverage range from Greggs sausage rolls to opening party’s in Cannes!

      • Bob says:

        During the festival and all the hype around it 😉

        • Richie says:

          My guess is there will be a number of re-opening events, the comparison being what fizz you were given, if you get Crémant you’ll know where you stand.

  • TimM says:

    Pre-Covid, the international check-in and check-out time was 12 noon. I feel that this is another standard that has permanently slipped because having earlier check-out times and later check-in times saves money or is a money-maker. I don’t call 2pm a late check-out, it is a mishap. 10pm is a late check-out.

    I book an extra night if I have a late departure – always cheaper than paying the hotel’s official late check-out fee.

    • James says:

      What? Checkout has been 10/11am and check-in 2/3pm for decades

      • Mike says:

        I’d hate to stay where you stay but normal check-out is 12pm with some at 11am. I wouldn’t stay a place with a 10am checkout unless I was setting off early to travel.

        • Lady London says:

          Youth Hostel checkout is 10.00am. Nuff said. I certainly wouldn’t stay anywhere that had a 10am checkout, as that’s indicative the hotel tends to “skimp” in other things.

          I also don’t view 2pm as a particularly big concession either. For me, 4pm means a hotel is beginning to try…(and these times, regardless of status).

  • RussellH says:

    100% agree about the view from the balcony over the harbour – even at 04:00 in the dark after a severely delayed and rerouted flight.

  • Peter says:

    700 pounds per night for a standard room in March.. I guess they don’t want many people at the beginning
