The Murray Building has undergone quite the transformation. Once home to key government departments, this celebrated colonial-era landmark has become The Murray, the elegant new flagship of Niccolo Hotels. It’s the highest-profile addition to the Central district’s hotel landscape in a decade and is set to become a popular leisure and business destination.
Here’s a rare combination: a hotel right in the heart of central Hong Kong but with green surroundings and a spacious air. It’s connected via walkway to the Central and Admiralty commercial districts, while St John’s Cathedral, Hong Kong Park and the Peak Tram are all just a stroll away. In short, an ideal location for both business and leisure.
With natural light, stone and leather textures, and simple modern fittings, The Murray’s rooms feel a world away from a government office. There are 336 guest rooms and suites here, all larger than 500 square feet, and each boasting views of the city skyline or green hills.
With five restaurants and bars, The Murray is set to become a popular place for entertaining, especially at Popinjays on the rooftop. For large gatherings, the 25th-floor Niccolo Room can seat 300, while The Arches outside can accommodate up to 350 people with the building’s iconic curved archways as a backdrop. After hours, head to the lap pool, gym or spa. niccolohotels.com
