InterContinental Hong Kong (Chinese: 香港洲際酒店) is an InterContinental hotel in Hong Kong. It is located on 18 Salisbury Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, on the former site of Holt's Wharf. InterContinental Hong Kong is close to many tourist attractions like Hong Kong Avenue of Stars, Hong Kong Cultural Centre, Hong Kong Space Museum and Star Ferry Pier.

The hotel was opened in 1980[2][1] as The Regent Hong Kong[3] (Chinese: 麗晶酒店)[2] and it was originally owned by New World Development and managed by Regent International Hotels. It sits on Kowloon's waterfront with views of the skyline of Hong Kong island.[3]

In June 2001, New World sold the hotel to Six Continents plc for GB£241 million.[citation needed] Six Continents (now InterContinental Hotels Group PLC) then rebranded the property as the InterContinental Hong Kong.

In July 2015, InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) agreed to sell the InterContinental Hong Kong to Supreme Key, a consortium of investors, for US$938 million. It was reported that IHG will retain a 37-year management contract, with three 10-year extension rights.[1]

In March 2018, it was announced that the hotel will be closed for renovations in 2020 before reopening in 2021. Subject to InterContinental Hotels' majority-stake acquisition of Regent Hotels, it is to be noted that the hotel will reopen as a Regent once more.[4]


The Presidential Suite, billed at US$13,715 per night, is listed at number 15 on World's 15 most expensive hotel suites compiled by CNN Travel in 2012.[5]

Japanese restaurant 'Nobu', part of the restaurant concept by chef Nobuyuki "Nobu" Matsuhisa is based at the hotel, since December 2006.[6][7] The restaurant was listed at no. 15 on Asia's Top 20 Restaurants of the Miele Guide in the 2009/2010 edition.[8] It was also listed at no. 16 for the 2008/2009[9] and 2010/2011 editions.[10]
