Hotel Pennington by Rhombus, Hong Kong
Hotel Pennington is the perfect Cantonese pied-à-terre for discerning guests who want to experience the discreet luxury, and the authentic charm of Hong Kong’s Causeway Bay and Wanchai shopping district. With just 79 generously spacious rooms, this intimate boutique hotel ensures every guest receives a personalised welcome. The hotel is owned by the Rhombus Group, which also owns, among other, Hotel Panorama, and Hotel LKF.
Located just behind Times Square and the Wanchai Markets - Causeway Bay’s most happening place, Hotel Pennington features what looks to be a very simple entrance. The contemporary yet cosy lobby is actually located at the 4th floor. The problem with Hong Kong is that there is a desperate lack of space in this tiny metropolis. While Estate Agents and property developers may otherwise tell you a different story (of course they would…they are building everything upwards!), it is posing plenty of challenges for many hoteliers that want to showcase their latest products.
Designed by The Oval Partnership, the hotel’s overall interior design comes across as both warm and cosy, with brushed concrete floors and chrome tables that have been softened by mood lighting, cool tones, and the convenience of built-in technology.
The rooms themselves have a fresh, spacious feeling with double exposure windows, electric curtains, heated bathroom mirror, and richly decorated walls. Guests are rewarded with authentic views of the real Hong Kong residential scenery – by that I mean the city’s concrete jungle. Natural light also fills the spacious marbled power shower that can be separated from the room by a sliding door.
Nothing can go wrong when you have automated safe, exquisite THANN bathroom amenities, 24-hour room service, 40-inch LED TV screens, complimentary Wi-Fi, and an authentic Cantonese turn-down service with traditional Cantonese savories. The three rooms per floor can be privatized for families if you wish. Breakfast is served at the at the Casa Pennington on the 3rd floor where the experience is for each and every sense which draws from both the Cantonese and Western roots, while incorporating the global influences of the city.

If you are an investor or a trend watcher then you may find this website useful as investing has a lot to do with personal observations and finding the ideal trend or next big thing. The average human on the street frequently knows far more about the state of the economy than politicians, university professors, subject matter experts, and financial analysts who seldom travel, or if they do so, only from one hotel to another hotel! The pulse and vibrancy of an economy is nowhere more visible than on a country's streets.
