The inspiring, 25-story landmark is now a five-star hotel with 336 sophisticated suites and guestrooms.
Designed by British modernist architect Ron Phillips in 1969, the 25-story Murray building is an important civic landmark and a fine example of 1970s Hong Kong architecture.
Today, it has reopened as The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel and an addition to the collection of luxurious, contemporary properties by Wharf Hotels.
In line with the building’s eco-conscious heritage, the hotel’s deeply recessed square windows have been enlarged and now create a magnificent picture frame of the city skylines and garden vistas.
Guests can expect to stay in some of the city’s most spacious accommodation as more than 75 percent of the rooms are at 50 square meters or larger. The 336 suites and guestrooms spanning 25 floors are embellished with natural fabrics and stones, leathers, and plush textiles, creating a comfortable sanctuary bearing an ambience of sophistication.
The hotel’s facilities, restaurants, and bars will open progressively from today, with highlights including a modern European restaurant – The Tai Pan; an elegant venue-the Garden Lounge; a Wall Street-inspired bar in Murray Lane; a roof-top bar and restaurant-Popinjays, and Michelin-starred Cantonese restaurant Guo Fu Lou.
