Forbes Travel Guide (“FTG”), the only global rating system for luxury hotels, restaurants, spas and ocean cruises, today announced its 2023 Star Awards. The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel earned its second Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star award and is showcased with other honorees on ForbesTravelGuide.com.
Including the latest acknowledgement by Forbes Travel Guide, The Murray, Hong Kong has garnered nearly 40 valuable awards and accolades in total since its grand opening in 2017. This honour is the icing on the cake during the hotel’s 5th anniversary celebration, as well as the best affirmation of the highest service standards by hotel associates. Originally built in 1969 as a government office complex, the Murray Building was designed by British architect, Ron Philips.
Considered innovative during that era, with the introduction of recessed windows that shelter the interior from the sun, thus moderating the use of air-conditioning, this pioneering sustainable and energy-saving solution has won the building numerous energy-efficient design awards. Philips was invited by Foster+Partners to transform his art piece into a luxury five-star hotel, celebrating the past and future of the building and vibrant city.
“We are proud to receive this honour for the second consecutive year, awarded by Forbes Travel Guide, one of the most prestigious global authorities on luxury travel,” said Mr Adriano Vences, General Manager of The Murray, Hong Kong. “Our consistent commitment to service excellence has gained the continuous support of global travellers and business partners. Our dedicated team is determined to go above and beyond to take care of guests and to create unrivalled experiences. With the reopening of borders and lifting of COVID-related measures in most parts of the world, we are ready to welcome the world’s business and leisure travellers anytime.”
“Travel is in an incredible position for continued growth, as people prioritise authentic, in-person experiences,” says Amanda Frasier, President of Ratings for Forbes Travel Guide. “The hotels, ocean cruises, restaurants and spas on our 2023 Star Rating list demonstrate an impressive commitment to creating memorable environments that nurture connection, joy and sense of place as we experience the world to its fullest.”
