HOW long had it been since you visited Hong Kong?
We have our own reasons why the place is close to our hearts—or our bellies.
It’s a regular destination for family bonding at the theme parks, a much-needed retail therapy, and of course food tripping at the usual haunts or discover a new menu.
Whatever the reason is, we always find the vibrant city an exciting destination.
It seems that there is always a surprise that awaits us.
Marco Polo Hotels is one of those that pop out surprises, and guess what?
They “hand-carried” the good news to Davao themselves.
Bearing gifts from Hong Kong to Davao were the Marco Polo Hong Kong communications team-director, Samantha Poon, with senior officer, Angel Wong.
“We are giving you and everyone else a few more good reasons why we should be staying, doing our business and celebrating at the Marco Polo Hotels in Hong Kong,” shared Poon.
The address is strategic, that we all know. The three Marco Polo hotels—Marco Polo Hong Kong, Gateway and Prince, are right smack at the center of Tsim Sha Tsui in Kowloon, which is part of Harbour City, HK’s largest shopping complex.
Let’s start dishing out the good news.
First, when you feel the need to de-stress via shopping, stay at any of the Marco Polo Hong Kong hotels and enjoy exclusive discounts in 125 outlets in the shopping paradise of Harbour City. Just flash your room key card and shop away!
Here’s a tip. Ask if the store can deliver your bags at the hotel concierge, much of them do. Don’t tire yourself with lugging the bags.
You have hundreds of boutiques to check out.
Second, the best views of the skyline can be seen aboard the Star Ferry crossing the iconic Victoria Harbour. It’s a much-lauded experience.
Want a free ride, sorry, rides rather?
Swipe a couple of nights stay in any of these hotels with your MasterCard (Philippines) and get a complimentary Star Ferry 4-day pass for two.
That, along with free room upgrade, breakfast, late check-out, F&B discounts in in-house restaurants, etc.
Third, if you don’t have an iPad Air or a smart watch and want one, then tell your office to hold the next function at any of the Marco Polo Hong Kong hotels.
If the function reaches the minimum amount spent on accommodation or function, then you can take one home. It’s that easy and that’s an extra gadget for you to take around Hong Kong.
The fourth is a reward program that partners with the sister hotels in the Philippines.
Book a function and rooms and reach the minimum spend required, then you get a free night in any of the six Marco Polo hotel of your choice— Ortigas, Cebu, Davao, and Hong Kong.
And did you know about the free smart phone deal that goes with your room in the Marco Polo HK hotels? The phone you can take along with you anywhere in HK and make free calls locally? Or call the Philippines and four other countries for free? The same phone with free internet access and can connect to several more devices? Which you can use to search for the best restaurants in the area? Which you and your gang can use to catch Pokemon unique to Hong Kong?
You didn’t? Well now you know. Make that the fifth surprise.
Everyone present that night had a sixth surprise. We all got a free two room nights in any of the Marco Polo hotels-the Marco Polo Hong Kong Hotel, Gateway Hotel and Prince Hotel of our choice. So everyone went home happy.
Three were happier though and got a seventh treat. They will get to stay at the suite room on their next visit to Hong Kong. Guess who’s one of them?
