Departing Tomorrow on Saturday, November 28th 2015: UA#179 Non Stop Service from Newark to Hong Kong. One of the longest flights non stop flights in the world; taking the polar route to reach Hong Kong in approximately 16 hours. While in Hong Kong; I will stay at the very lovely and unique Hotel ICON located in Tsim Sha Tsui Kowloon. The ICON is a modern luxury hotel blending all of the local elements of Hong Kong and its environment. The Hotel ICON is also a unique learning experience Hotel which is part of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the School of Hotel and Tourism Management.
The purpose of my visit to Hong Kong is to attend the first ever Hong Kong Hotel Concierge Forum 2015 where I will be discussing the Evolution of The Concierge Profession and Les Clefs d’Or, among other concierge related topics.
The Hotel ICON offers spectacular views of Hong Kong Harbour from its guest rooms, panoramic bar and a very special restaurant Above and Beyond. The photo above is the very well appointed heated swimming pool and bar also with spectacular views of Hong Kong; my favourite city in the world.
I am looking forward to attending the Hong Kong Concierge Forum as well to experience this unique “learning” Hotel ICON.
