The Novotel Citygate Hong Kong is srategically placed to capture business not only from the airport but also from nearby tourist attractions such as Hong Kong Disneyland and Ngong Ping 360 Skyrail (opening in June 2006), Novotel Citygate is also in close proximity to AsiaWorld-Expo, which has named Novotel Citygate as an ‘on site hotel partner’. A free shuttle service is available to and from the Airport and AsiaWorld-Expo.

According to the hotel’s General Manager, Mr. Scott Davies, “Novotel Citygate will be a stylish addition to Tung Chung and surrounding area. Its opening reflects the growing importance of this location in Hong Kong and the hotel provides an ideal base for visiting business or leisure travellers, as well as delegates visiting AsiaWorld-Expo.”

The hotel features four restaurants and a bar. All day dining outlet, Essence, serves Asian fusion buffet in an open show kitchen and a la carte, blending all Asian and Western favourites. Casual Mediterranean dining is offered at Olea, while guests can enjoy Arabica coffee and oven-baked pastry at Moccato, and the lobby lounge, Andante is a perfect venue to unwind and relax.

Making the maximum use of space is central to the interior design philosophy of the guestrooms by Steve Leung Designers, each of which has 32-inch wall-mounted LCD television screens, modern open plan bathrooms and generous workspace. Room sizes range from 26 - 87 sqm.

Corporate guests are also well served with a fully-equipped ‘Biz Center’ and wireless Internet throughout the hotel. The four ‘Biz Executive Floors,’ will cater to an expected strong demand from corporate clients and conference delegates who also receive complimentary breakfast and evening cocktails in the ‘Biz Lounge’.
