(Hong Kong, 19 October 2006) The Fleming, Hong Kong’s chic Urban Lifestyle hotel officially opens its doors today.

In a charming, quiet side-street in the heart of the Wan Chai business and entertainment district, The Fleming is just a short stroll from the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre, as well as the district’s famous shopping and nightlife.

A unique boutique hotel created with international executives and frequent business travellers in mind, The Fleming’s contemporary, stylish and spacious design is minimalist yet cosy, with high ceilings and Italian marble. Its key philosophy is exceptionally friendly and attentive personalised service.

The ‘urban lifestyle’ concept extends to high-tech facilities required by today’s professionals and business travellers. All 66 rooms offer not only the utmost comfort and quality, but all of the essentials for today’s modern travellers such as plasma television, wireless broadband internet, and cordless phones with voicemail service.

The hotel’s Executive Rooms are further equipped with 3-in-one fax, scanner and printer, DVD player, and kitchenette – great for frequent travellers who are fed up of eating out all the time.

Security is ensured with key card access to each floor in the elevator.

The Fleming recognises the distinctive needs of female business travellers, offering Hong Kong’s first dedicated female only floor (opening in November). The specially adorned rooms are complete with amenities especially for ladies, as well as a beauty kit, jewelry box, facial steamer and leg massage machine available upon request. Even the mini-bar is tailored for women, with a selection of herbal teas and healthy snacks.

A fully equipped Business Centre offers a conference room, individual work stations, and secretarial and translation services. It is also home to the hotel’s extensive DVD library. Hotel guests can also enjoy complimentary access to the California Fitness, located just around the corner from the hotel.

Located on the Lobby Level, the intimate restaurant Cubix serves tapas and sensational western cuisine as well as a range of signature cocktails and wines. It is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

John Hui, Managing Director of The Fleming, is the highest-ranked professional men’s tennis player in the history of Hong Kong and many of its features are based on his unique perspective on the hotel experience, having spent over 15 years living out of a suitcase as he travelled the world contesting tournaments.
