Wharf Hotels announces the opening of The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel, as the group’s new flagship Niccolo property and latest addition to the luxury contemporary chic collection by Wharf Hotels.
As one of eight historic landmarks under the Conserving Central initiative introduced by the Hong Kong government in 2013, The Murray is an inspiring piece of architecture holding almost 50 years of history, and a landmark building located in the heart of the city in Central, Hong Kong.
The Murray includes 336 sophisticated suites and guestrooms spanning 25 floors, offering some of the city’s most spacious accommodation choices with over 75% at 50 square metres or larger. Interiors are embellished with natural fabrics and stones, leathers and plush textiles creating a contemporary chic sanctuary and sophistication.
“We are delighted to announce the opening of The Murray, a new hospitality icon for not only Hong Kong, but our global community, and the flagship for the Niccolo brand,” said Dr. Jennifer Cronin, President, Wharf Hotels.
The Murray will offer five restaurants and bars led by a world-class culinary and mixology team 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.
Complementing its banqueting expertise, The Murray will present over 1,900 square meters of exclusive meeting and event spaces designed for luxury, fashion, art, wedding and corporate occasions.
To honour the building’s rich history, the former driveway that circled the building beneath the property’s three-storey arches was retained and transformed into a semi-alfresco venue named The Arches, hosting up to 350 guests. This will provide a stylish setting for fashion shows and luxury automotive showcases, exhibitions, cocktail parties and social gatherings.
