Currently, the Group manages 14 hotels (six owned by the Group) in China, Hong Kong and the Philippines under the legacy brand of Marco Polo Hotels and the new luxury brand, Niccolo Hotels.
The Group’s new luxury brand, Niccolo, is a unique representation of sophisticated urban chic hotels. It has proven to be a resounding brand and business success. Opened at Chengdu IFS in April 2015, the first Niccolo has garnered a host of prestigious awards with the latest addition being "Best Business Hotels" in the "2017 Condé Nast Traveler China Gold List", affirming the success of the brand evolution.
Niccolo Chengdu sets a good model for the three Niccolo hotels under development at the IFS complexes in Chongqing, Changsha and Suzhou, which are progressing to plan.
The previously known 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.
It is a new luxury hotel project with a total investment of over HK$7 billion, and has officially named it as “The Murray” on 21 September 2016. The Murray is part of the government’s Conserving Central Project and is scheduled to open in late 2017.
With its unique location in a stand-alone building positioned between the Central business district and the green oasis of Hong Kong Park, the 336-room hotel will offer a sophisticated urban chic sanctuary in the heart of the city. Situated on Cotton Tree Drive in Central, it will breathe new life into one of Hong Kong’s most iconic and historic buildings.
Being the first significant new luxury hotel to open in Hong Kong for several years, the tall white landmark structure, with its distinctive arches and unique recessed windows, was built in 1969 and has since won many awards for its ground-breaking and energy efficient design.
