Corporate Information

Overview

Harbour Centre is a listed subsidiary of Wharf REIC, with property and hotel development and investment as its core business. Mainland China assets are being liquidated in an orderly manner to focus on Hong Kong.

Hong Kong

Flagship assets in Hong Kong include MP Hong Kong and The Murray.

Primely located on Canton Road, Tsimshatsui, MP Hong Kong overlooks the spectacular Victoria Harbour view. The iconic "Star" Ferry and Hong Kong's first cruise terminal are at the footstep along with an all-weathered shopping mall at Harbour City – Hong Kong's largest shopping complex.

With its favourable location in Harbour City, MP Hong Kong provides convenience for discerning travellers. In particular, its premier location and enhanced product offerings have placed the hotel in a good position to capture the spending of international and Chinese travellers.

In recognition of its leading position among discerning travellers, MP Hong Kong was awarded “Best 10 Hotels & Resorts in Hong Kong” in the 2020 DestinAsian Readers’ Choice Awards, receiving this appreciation from DestinAsian magazine’s readers for three consecutive years. Apart from it, it is named “Recommended Hotel” while Cucina is named “Four-Star Restaurant” in Forbes Travel Guide’s 2020 Star Awards.

The latest long-term strategic investment of the Group is The Murray, which opened in 2018 upon the epic conversion from the iconic 1960’s Murray Building. Renowned architect Foster + Partners helped to steer this significant Government heritage preservation initiative. The hotel has rapidly earned international praise and emerged as an icon of the city for impeccable hospitality.

Prominently located at the bottom of Garden Road and Cotton Tree Drive, the sophisticated urban sanctuary boasts a seamless blend of scenic views of the city’s CBD and the lush green oasis of Hong Kong Park. The minimalist décor with clean lines and modern fixtures characterises the 336 spacious rooms and suites in the 25-storey contemporary chic hotel. The wide array of dining options promise unforgettable elevated culinary experiences. The exceptional meeting and event spaces further establish The Murray as the new epicenter for conferences, events and celebrations.

The Murray ranked first among the “Top 10 Hotels in Hong Kong and Macao” in Condé Nast Traveler’s “Readers’ Choice Awards 2019” for the second consecutive year and was honored to be included in “China’s Top 50 Hotels” in 2019 Voyage Best Hotel & Resort Value Award.
