Eaton Hotel, Hong Kong NEARS COMPLETION OF USm MAKEOVER
(Hong Kong, 13 November 2006) – Eaton Hotel, Hong Kong is nearing completion of a substantial USm makeover, giving it a new focus on exclusivity, efficiency and an understated urban polish designed to appeal to the new generation of business travellers.
“We’ve really looked closely at what today’s business traveller actually needs and I believe we are giving it to them, far more cost effectively than the five-star hotels but with no compromise on quality,” said Bob van den Oord, the 39-year old General Manager of the Eaton Hotel, Hong Kong.
Eaton Hotel, Hong Kong’s 461 rooms are being upgraded to a contemporary yet cosy style with modern high-tech features, restaurants have been revamped, a stylish new club floor concept, E Club, has been conceived, and one of Kowloon’s largest and most state of the art conference and banquet facilities has been completed.
“Our new E Club, brand new contemporary guestrooms, state-of-the-art conference facilities and a touch of urban style are just some of the features that are drawing savvy business travelers to Eaton Hotel,” says Bob van den Oord.
Located on Nathan Road in downtown Kowloon, close to the Jordan MTR station and just five minutes drive from the KCR station, ten minutes from the Star Ferry and 40 minutes from the airport, Eaton Hotel is also a superbly well located hotel for both business and leisure travellers.
The new E Club offers a stylish all day meeting and hang out space which is on a par with any top hotel’s executive floor facilities, and includes breakfasts, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and even free-flowing Moet et Chandon in the evenings. There are also computers with broadband internet access and meeting facilities, all in a comfortable contemporary environment which is a delight to linger in.
New-look guest rooms are comfortable and stylishly finished in contemporary warm, earth tones with dashes of natural colour reflecting the vibrancy of the location in the energetic heart of Hong Kong. All rooms feature luxurious 100% cotton, 300-threadcount sateen weave bedding which offers a level of comfort and luxury normally only found in the leading hotels.
Other room features include the 'Eaton Easy Chairs' which are probably the most comfortable desk chairs in town, as well as broadband internet links which are complemented by high-tech iHome™ IH5WB technology, the world's first stereo clock radio connecting to iPods.
Besides these the rooms also feature comprehensive bathroom amenities, magnifying make-up/shaving mirrors, anti-mist bathroom mirrors, powerful hairdryers, the latest LCD TVs, universal power sockets and integrated coffee/tea making facilities.
Thanks to the superb new 3,000 sq metre Eaton Hotel Banquet and Conference Centre which can accommodate up to 550 guests or delegates with flexible configuration and state-of-the-art technology, Eaton Hotel now ranks among Kowloon's top meeting destinations.
It has also become one of Hong Kong's most popular wedding banquet venues, and features a unique spiral staircase which allows the newly wedded couple to make a unique and memorable Hollywood-style grand entrance on their special night.
Dining is also a highlight at Eaton Hotel, with the hotel’s chic, contemporary and award-winning signature restaurant Yat Tung Heen pioneering a new culinary movement in "nouvelle Cantonese" cuisine. The hotel’s newly refashioned Coffee Shop is one of the most popular all day dining venues in the district, while Eaton Hotel will be introducing an exciting new contemporary Japanese restaurant concept in early 2007.
The 24-hour Lobby Lounge is adjoined by a lush outdoor Garden Terrace - a green haven for breakfast or cocktails in the heart of the city, while the hotel’s Aroma Coffee Exchange is its own concept boutique coffee shop with trained baristas serving the world's premium fresh-ground beans.
From now until January 31, Eaton Hotel is pleased to welcome guests with the “Eaton Room Grand Opening Package,” featuring complimentary E Club benefits, 30% off all food and beverage consumption inside the hotel, daily complimentary coffee delivered by Aroma Coffee in the morning, complimentary breakfast at E Club and Eaton Hotel’s signature Martini shaken in guest rooms on arrival.
