Located in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong, Hotel ICON has partnered with KEF to complement its unforgettable views of Victoria Harbour with a wide range of the brand’s wireless Hi-Fi systems, for an unparalleled wireless sound experience curated exclusively for hotel guests.
From early October until 30 November 2020, Hotel ICON will be opening its doors to guests looking to take a trip down music memory lane. During this time, guests staying in the hotel’s three thematic pop-up suites will be transported on a short-haul, hi-fidelity sensory journey through the past and present of the greatest moments in music history.
To strike the right chord, guests can choose suites based on their favourite genres: Celebrate British Rock ‘n’ Roll legends in the Club 80 Harbour Suite, relive the golden era of the 80’s Cantopop scene in the Club 65 Studio Suite, or rest the night away with cool jazz in the Designer Suite by Vivienne Team, each fuelled entirely by KEF’s state-of-the-art speakers.
Each suite envelopes its guests in an immersive experience, with instantly recognisable décor, and a specially curated culinary and cocktail menu. Plus, guests can stream their favourite films on Netflix, or enjoy a Spotify playlist curated by renowned DJ, Dr. Wong Chi Chung, for a personalised in-room experience.
And of course, room guests get to enjoy these specially compiled experiences through an array of KEF’s premium loudspeakers, including Blade, Reference, LS50 Wireless II, LSX and Muo.
