Hong Kong’s Murray Hotel named #1 in Asia by Conde Nast

The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel has been ranked number 1 among the Top Hotels in Asia/Hong Kong for a second consecutive year, scoring 98.4 in Condé Nast Traveler’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

Over 600,000 Condé Nast Traveler readers across the globe submitted a recording-breaking number of responses rating their travel experiences and providing a detailed snapshot of where and how we travel today. The Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards are the longest-running and most prestigious recognition of excellence in the travel industry and are commonly known as “the best of the best of travel.”

This is the second consecutive year Condé Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards have distinguished The Murray with a coveted place among Hong Kong’s Top 10 hotels. This is the latest illustrious award conferred upon the hotel. In 2018, TIME Magazine named The Murray as one of the World’s Greatest Places, Conde Nast Traveller UK included the hotel in its sought-after Hot List and it earned the title of Best New Business Hotel in Asia from Bloomberg.com.

One of the unique things about the hotel is the arrival experience, because most hotels in Hong Kong are quite tight on space, so for them, the arrival experience is “not easy”. Here, the designers of the property have created something with an air of sophistication: something that is calm, away from the madness of the city.

Indeed, ideally located between the heart of the Central business district and the green oasis of Hong Kong Park, The Murray is a sophisticated, contemporary 336-guestroom and suite hotel situated in a refurbished iconic building that formerly housed government offices. Among its unique features is Popinjays, a stunning rooftop bar with some of the most breathtaking views of the city.

Other facilities include an indoor lap-pool, fully equipped gymnasium, and a spa program in partnership with international skin specialist, Dr Barbara Sturm.

Welcoming guests since 15 January 2018, The Murray is a key component of the government’s Conserving Central Project.
