Location is a big draw at the InterContinental, as it is within walking distance of museums and major sights. The rooms are also a highlight, and are tastefully decorated in a classic style, with understated wood furnishings and neutral-toned carpeting. They also feature up-to-date amenities such as large flat-screen TVs and marble bathrooms. Some rooms offer beautiful views of the harbor and Hong Kong skyline, which is especially stunning at night. However, unlike competitors such as the Grand Hyatt and the Conrad (both across the harbor), standard rooms here do not have separate showers and tubs. The InterContinental has numerous amenities, including three restaurants, a bar, a heated rooftop pool, and a small fitness center. It is a solid pick, especially for sightseers, but the Langham and Peninsula are a tad more opulent.
In the popular Tsim Sha Tsui area, near public transportation, museums, parks, and markets
The Intercontinental is located in the Tsim Sha Tsui area of the Kowloon peninsula, within walking distance of Kowloon Park.
Though Hong Kong Island is the most visited area of Hong Kong, Kowloon comes in second. A neighborhood of museums, historic temples, and shops, Kowloon attracts visitors throughout the year. Literally meaning "nine dragons," which stands for the eight hills in the area and the Chinese emperor, Kowloon is one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in Hong Kong -- an already over-populated city. With the constant influx of tourists, the crowds continue to grow even larger.
Kowloon 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 Kowloon 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. Kowloon is also home to important museums such as the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Hong Kong Museum of History.
