Hong Kong SAR, China, 25 February 2020 – The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel, is delighted to announce it is now a member of The Leading Hotels of the World programme, a collection of independent, luxury hotels. Comprising more than 400 hotels in over 80 countries, Leading Hotels brings together one-of-a-kind luxury hotels embodying the very essence of their destinations – from unique architecture and design to distinct cultural experiences. The result is a curated portfolio of hotels united not by what makes them the same, but the details that make them different. The Murray is proud to be the only Hong Kong hotel in Leading Hotels’ portfolio and looks forward to connecting to even more guests seeking exceptional travel experiences.
“It is a pleasure to welcome The Murray Hong Kong to The Leading Hotels of the World,” said Deniz Omurgonulsen, Vice President, Membership, The Leading Hotels of the World. “The Murray’s addition marks Leading Hotels’ reemergence into the very important Hong Kong market. The property is now the only Leading Hotels in Hong Kong and is an exceptional representation of the collection. The Murray offers curious travelers outstanding service, quality and truly uncommon experiences, delivered by extraordinary hoteliers.”
A flagship property of Niccolo Hotels, The Murray is located along legendary Cotton Tree Drive, in the heart of Central in Hong Kong. As one of Hong Kong’s great architectural prizes, the 1960s standalone building is recognisable for the breath-taking archways that frame its entrance. Repurposed and reimagined in collaboration with Foster + Partners in 2018, this high-profile preservation project is part of city’s Conserving Central initiative. The contemporary chic sanctuary features 336 rooms spanning 25 floors. Deeply rooted in Hong Kong, The Murray is the destination to experience new encounters and timeless pleasures, and to discover new styles, tastes and cultures through the hotel’s unique signature experiences.
The Murray is now part of Leading Hotels exclusive loyalty program, Leaders Club. The program was recently redesigned and amplifies relationships curated by Leading Hotels between likeminded curious travelers and independent hoteliers. Leaders Club recognises and rewards members for their loyalty at Leading Hotels’ over 400 independent luxury hotels worldwide.
