A Hotel Unlike Any Other

We strongly believe so. We are the spirit of Hong Kong. The city is our home; the people our investors. Hotel ICON is a Kowloon hotel that was founded by the School of Hotel & Tourism Management at Hong Kong PolyU to serve tourism, benefit the community and showcase the best of our great city. This is why we consider ourselves ambassadors of Hong Kong and why we embrace its rich culture. Uniquely among hotels, Hotel ICON was born to develop and innovate within the hospitality industry; it’s a responsibility we accept with energy and pride.

Celebrating Individuality

At our hotel in Kowloon, Hong Kong, we celebrate individuality because that is what defines us. We set out to be unique and stand out from the crowd. We created a hotel that embodies the best of Hong Kong - our super-modern, neon city. We ensure that all of our team reflect our philosophy. They are confident, responsive and will deliver exactly what you want with style and energy. Furthermore, whilst our eye is always looking to the future, our senses are deeply rooted in the best traditions of Asian hospitality. We believe in balance - and keeping things simple to make life a little less complicated.
We are all about haute style and architectural cool. The creative buzz of Hong Kong has inspired our every detail from design and art to food. We are, in turn, both sophisticated yet informal, observant but always respectful. We are cultural, spiritual and philosophical and we believe that Hotel ICON is the place where the seasoned traveller can slip into something more comfortable.
