Because the hotel is located adjacent to the IFC mall, Central MTR station and Airport Express station, travelers enjoy conveniences such as wheeling luggage right off the Airport Express train into the hotel without ever setting foot outside. The IFC mall is a mecca of designer shopping (see the IFC booklet in your room for possible discounts), however, there is a grocery store, drug store and more to address anything you may have forgotten to pack. Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong sits right next to Victoria Harbour and, therefore, a quick walk to the famous Star Ferry which can take you on a scenic ride to the Kowloon side. Taxis are plentiful and the doormen will make sure drivers drop guests at the correct destinations.
Completed in 2005, the rooms have modern conveniences such as WiFi, Nepresso coffee machines, plasma TVs, large work areas and plenty of storage. Choose between stunning views of The Peak or Victoria Harbour, where the Symphony of Lights laser show can be seen daily at 8pm. Gorgeous marble bathrooms with large soaking tubs and rain showers relax the busiest of traveler. Complimentary fruit and bottled water are replenished throughout your stay. For stays of one month or longer, consider Four Seasons Place which has serviced apartments that enjoy hotel privileges and have small kitchens in each unit.
If you can bare to leave the comfort of your room, take advantage of the hotel's state-of-the-art fitness center complete with LCD TVs on cardiovascular equipment and personal training by request. Try a poolside Tai Chi class that caters to all levels of practice.

A visit to Hong Kong is incomplete without a booking at the Spa. Banish jet lag or treat yourself to a pick-me-up massage, facial, reflexology session, scrub and more. Plan for extra time around your treatment to enjoy the Vitality Lounge. Relax and read a magazine on the comfortable lounge chairs or take a dip in the whirlpool. Extend the bliss, but not so long as to skip the Spa Boutique. You'll need enough time to browse for everything from spa wear to skin care.
Though Hong Kong has a wide variety of cuisines from around the globe, it is possible to dine exclusively in the Four Seasons Hotel. It's the only hotel to contain two Michelin three-star restaurants. Lung King Heen is the world's first Cantonese Michelin three-star restaurant, with Chef Chan Yan Tak at the helm crafting unique twists on dim sum and other local specialties. Hong Kong's first cheese cellar and finest wine list reside at the hotel's French restaurant, Caprice, also recipient of three Michelin stars. High tea and breakfast at the Lobby Lounge and drinks at the Blue Bar are also popular with guests and residents. Reservations are suggested at all of the hotel's restaurants.
Though Hong Kong is a business travel destination, the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong is also extremely family-friendly. Kid-sized robes, slippers and toiletries are placed in the room along with a welcome gift. Little travelers will love the poolside popsicles and kids menu that happens to fold up into a fortune teller. The Concierge can suggest plenty of activities they'll enjoy such as Hong Kong Disneyland, The Peak, museums and more.
If you are planning a visit to Asia's World City, a stay at Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong will ensure that you return often.
