IHG recently announced that following an extensive refurbishment due to commence in early 2020, InterContinental Hong Kong will become a Regent Hotel in early 2021. The hotel originally opened its doors in 1980 as one of the most iconic hotels to ever carry the Regent brand. This follows a move by IHG to bring Regent into its brand portfolio at the top end of the luxury segment.
Originally built as The Regent Hong Kong in 1980, the hotel was rebranded to InterContinental Hong Kong in June 2001. The hotel is now set to undergo a spectacular transformation that will position it as one of Asia’s most iconic hotels. Following the refurbishment, the hotel will be opening its doors once again as The Regent Hong Kong, a flagship property for the Regent brand.
