In East Tsim Sha Tsui, within a few minutes' walk of two MTR stops, several najor sights, and shops
The InterContinental is conveniently located in East Tsim Sha Tsui neighborhood in Kowloon, an area known for its numerous attractions and wonderful shopping. The hotel is near a few parks and within walking distance to major attractions, including the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Avenue of Stars. The East Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station is half a block from the hotel, and the Tsim Sha Tsui is within a five-minute walk.
A neighborhood of museums, historic temples, and shops, Kowloon attracts visitors throughout the year. The area is home to some of the world's largest malls, a lively nightlife, and Kowloon Park -- Hong Kong's version of Central Park. But it's not just shopping and partying in Kowloon. Many areas of the neighborhood have an authentic vibe, with all kinds of open-air markets -- flowers, jade, produce -- and historic buildings from before and during the time of the British occupation.
The 590-room InterContinental is one of the most luxurious hotels in Hong Kong, conveniently situated in Kowloon within walking distance of numerous sights. Its claim to fame may be that over two-thirds of the rooms have harbor views, but the hotel has plenty else to brag about, including seven dining options (one is NOBU and another is an Alain Ducasse restaurant), a rooftop pool, a top-notch spa, and gorgeous rooms featuring 24-hour butler service. Rooms are decorated with Asian accents -- such as tasseled gold and brown bed throws with calligraphy print -- and also feature large flat-screen TVs with DVD players, iPod docks, and marble bathrooms with separate showers and tubs. There's a fee for Wi-Fi, but those who can afford this hotel rate it as one of Hong Kong's best.
