Wharf Holdings has been given the go ahead by the Buildings Department to redevelop the Marco Polo Hong kong Hotel in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Nineteen stories atop a five-level basement will replace the present 18 floors, which feature 665 room costing from HK$2,000 a night.
Established in 1969 as the Hong Kong Hotel, it was taken over from Omni by the Marco Polo group in 1988. Its one of three Marco Polo hotels in the SAR today.
But the familiar harborside lines will remain for a while. According to Wharf the redevelopment is not imminent as work is ongoing on how best to shape the new hotel to achieve maximum value.
