Le Meridien Hotels & Resorts has announced the management of a new hotel in Hong Kong. Le Meridien @ Cyberport, the flagship hotel in Hong Kong for Le Meridien, will spearhead Le Meridien`s expansion into the fast-growing North Asian market.
Scheduled for completion towards the end of 2003, the hotel is located in Phase III of Hong Kong Island`s Cyberport development, a strategic Information Technology infrastructure project initiated by the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
The unique design of the hotel`s 176 guestrooms will be compatible with Le Meridien`s Art + Tech Concept and will serve as a showcase of state-of-the-art technology and innovative hospitality systems, including the capability for remote check-in and check-out, powerful broadband communications services, and wireless Internet access. In addition, Le Meridien guests will have access to the many sophisticated telecommunications services available to members of the Cyberport community, including an optical network that provides ultra high-speed Internet connections for all tenants and residents, Satellite Master Antenna Television System that boasts as many as 120 channels of satellite television broadcasting, and a Cyberportal on which up-to-date Cyberport and local news will be posted.
In addition to specifically catering to the needs of corporate IT executives, and meeting and events-related market segments, Le Meridien @ Cyberport will also be geared to the needs of the local Cyberport community.
