Harbour Plaza 8 Degrees, which is located near the former Kai Tak Airport, is scheduled to open in mid October, 2009.
The newly built property has a unique twist to its lobby, the designer has made an optical illusion and created an environment which gives the feel of being inside Italy's Leaning Tower of Pisa.
The 702 room hotel is close to the shopping and entertainment areas of Kowloon Bay shopping and Tsimshatsui is reachable by complimentary shuttle bus routed through one of Hong Kong's oldest districts.
For MICE there is a large banquet room divisible to nine meeting rooms with over 4,500-square-feet of space equipped with multi-function room lighting and the latest audio-visual technology, two restaurants serving Asian and international cuisine, a bar, a full service business center, a club lounge, state-of-the-art fitness center and a distinctively shaped outdoor swimming pool and whirlpool surrounded by a lush landscape.
