HIEX CBD2

The new Holiday Inn Express (HIEX) in Kwun Tong, a collaboration between Glorious Sun and the InterContinental Hotels Group, is a 31 storey, 286 key hotel in Hong Kong’s second Central Business District (CBD2) on the north side of Victoria Harbour.
 
The hotel lobby opens directly from How Ming Street making a striking impression on the streetscape with its colorfully lit double height core wall forming a backdrop to the lobby waiting area. With only a small concierge desk at ground level, the hotel check-in is on the first floor accessed by lift or escalator.
 
The floor plate varies up the building with 15 rooms on the largest floors. Standard rooms are 212 SF with larger VIP rooms at 300 SF. The upper floors of the hotel have views looking across the harbour towards Hong Kong Island to the south and of the Kowloon Hills to the north.
 
The concept for the backdrop comes from the idea of a nest, giving comfort, warmth and protection to the weary traveler, formed by a tangle of branches and twigs with bright flashes of colour reminiscent of iridescent peacock feathers. It is a theme that continues throughout the hotel in the circulation areas, lift car interiors and into the hotel rooms where the branches turn to green symbolising new growth.
