The Murray, Hong Kong, a Niccolo Hotel, will boast over 1,900m2 of meeting and event spaces when the 336-key property opens later this year.
The building’s architectural and design studio Foster + Partners has kept the former driveway and its arches, and converted it into a semi-alfresco venue, The Arches. Able to hold over 500 guests, the space also boasts views of Hong Kong Park and St John’s Cathedral, and is suitable for creative events from fashion shows to luxury automotive showcases.
Adjacent to The Arches is the 130m2 Cotton Tree Terrace, a space that can hold up to 100 guests. The property’s Garden Level, meanwhile, offers 150m2 of landscaped event space for a maximum of 125 guests, ideal for private gatherings.
Meanwhile, on the second floor of the hotel are the multipurpose function rooms comprising a pre-function area and six rooms that range from 35-40m2, three of which can be combined for a larger space of 105m2.
There is also a larger 420m2 conference room, the Niccolo Room, equipped with the latest audiovisual equipment, on the 25th level ideal for conferences or galas. The venue can be partitioned to create a pre-function room or up to eight individual spaces â€“ each outfitted with wall panels that can slide back to reveal 65-inch flatscreen TVs. This is the property’s largest indoor venue, and can welcome up to 360 guests for a cocktail-style reception.
Lastly, on the top floor of The Murray will sit The Aviary private dining room, set within a restaurant and bar. It canÂ accommodate up to 12 guests.
