Business Overview | Wharf Hotels

The Group currently operates 14 Marco Polo hotels in the Asia Pacific region, six of which are owned by the Group.

Expanding its Marco Polo hotel portfolio in Asia Pacific remains the Group's strategic vision. There will be a solid portfolio of 12 owned hotels (including five new hotels in the Mainland) in four years' time, destined to offer superb design and impeccable hospitality for business and leisure travellers. Four of the new hotels are "Sophisticated Urban Chic" hotels under the luxury brand Niccolo, which raises the bar in style, taste and hospitality for the Group’s hotel portfolio. As an integral part of the Group's multi-purpose IFS complexes, the first Niccolo was opened in Chengdu IFS in April 2015 and a further three Niccolo hotels will be opened in the IFS complexes in Chongqing, Changsha and Suzhou.

Niccolo Chengdu, the first hotel under this new luxury brand by Marco Polo, features 230 luxurious guest rooms and suites, a range of exceptional dining experiences, and The Conservatory, a unique oval-shaped venue for business events and celebrations, as well as a Ballroom overlooking the stunning IFS Sculpture Garden. Soon after its soft opening in April 2015, Niccolo Chengdu already garnered its first award - "Best New Hotel Brand - Ultra Luxury" at the 5th China Hotel Awards by Lifestyle Magazine. Room revenue has exceeded the Group's expectation, placing it among the top hotels in the city.

Murray Building

Murray Building was acquired by the Group through listed subsidiary Harbour Centre Development Limited for HK$4.4 billion in November 2013. It is a 27-storey majestic building with towering arches and quite possibly the last remaining prime site in Central for a major hotel.

With nearly 50 years of history, this prominent landmark building with intricate design guards the intersection of traffic arteries in Central that run east-west and north-south and commands open green views over Hong Kong Park. It is also well connected to other buildings in the neighbourhood, as well as to the Mass Transit Railway.

The Group will convert this iconic building into a unique urban chic hotel featuring 336 luxury guestrooms overlooking the heart of Central for a total investment of over HK$7 billion. The Main Contract was awarded in May 2015 and hotel opening is targeted for the second half of 2017.
