Harbour Plaza Metropolis offers unique rooms designed by 10 celebrity pop singers to make guests feel at home.
I had never imagined staying in a hotel room designed by famous Hong Kong pop singer, Kelly Chen. I sit on the sofa selected by Kelly, appreciate the delicate furniture and accessories of her choice and feel closer to her. It is amazing and fantastic. Harbour Plaza Metropolis has made the dream come true.
Situated in the heart of Kowloon, the hotel overlooks the spectacular Victoria Harbour. Conveniently located near the Hung Hom MTR station, it provides easy access to other parts of Kowloon, the New Territories and the southern part of the Chinese mainland. It is also very close to the Hong Kong Coliseum.
“A lot of people think Harbour Plaza Metropolis has affiliation with celebrities and artists because we are right next to the coliseum. Many local and overseas celebrities from different countries all over the world stay here or have celebrations here,” says Andy Castillejos, General Manager of Harbour Plaza Metropolis.
The “Home Sweet Home” Theme Room Package is introduced in celebration of the 10th anniversary of the hotel. Ten popular Hong Kong pop singers are invited to design a special theme room of their own. The theme rooms include Kelly’s Suite designed by Kelly Chen, “HIP”tel designed by Louis Cheung, Vincy Simply designed by Vincy Chan and the Ofuro Room designed by Adason Lo.
Andy understood all the pop singers have long working hours and travel abroad frequently. They always longed for a “dream” hotel room where they could unwind at the end of the day. The dream has come true for some at Harbour Plaza Metropolis. The ten singers have used their astonishing artistic talent and imagination to design ten unique rooms.
“Basically, we want to create a home-like atmosphere,” says Andy with a smile. The artists paid great attention to detail in an effort to provide our guests with the most comfortable, relaxing and stylish “home”.
The hotel has collaborated with Francfranc, a renowned Japanese home furnishing lifestyle brand, on this project. The singers participated in all phases of the planning and implementation process. These included selecting the color scheme for the rooms, choosing the products at Francfranc’s store and setting up the rooms with Francfranc’s furniture and accessories.
“I like all the 10 theme rooms but my favorite one is Kelly’s Suite. It is modern and chic and showcases more than 300 pieces of Francfranc designer items,” says Andy. He points out the graphic design of the dining sets and the animal decorations that reveal aspects of Kelly’s unique personality and astonishing interior designing talent.
The other theme rooms have their own character and charm as well. Adason Lo chose to hang a huge green rug on the wall, demonstrating his creativity, sense of style and love of nature.
