Marriott has today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Victoria Park Hotels to bring the Autograph Collection brand to Hong Kong in 2025 and if I’m reading things right, this move will see an Accor hotel rebranded as a Marriott Autograph Collection property at some point next year.

For those of us who don’t know Hong Kong like the back of our hands, Marriott’s press release could be be a little bit misleading because parts of it give the impression that what’s coming is a new build property.

Phrases like “[the property] will be located on Gloucester Road in Causeway Bay“, “[t]he hotel will be within a 5-minute walk to Causeway Bay Metro Station” and “[i]t is anticipated to have 820 guest rooms” can all give the impression that the property isn’t yet constructed. That, however, doesn’t appear to be the case.

As the property in question is called the Park Lane Hong Kong and as a hotel with that name already sits at the address given by Marriott, and as the two images provided by Marriott match images on the Park Lane’s website, I’m pretty sure that the property Marriott is referring to has been around for some time. Over 50 years, in fact, as the property was first opened in 1974.

Currently, the Park Lane Hotel Hong Kong is flagged under Accor’s Pullman brand, and you can still make bookings at the property up to and including new year’s eve 2024. Any attempt to make a booking for dates in 2025 returns an error message, so it’s possible that we’ll see it join Marriott very early next year.

Further details are currently thin on the ground with Marriott just having this to say:

The Park Lane Hong Kong, Autograph Collection will be located on Gloucester Road in Causeway Bay, home to Victoria Park, Hong Kong Island’s largest public park. The hotel will be within a 5-minute walk to Causeway Bay Metro Station and within 10 minutes’ walk to major corporate venues such as the Lee Garden and World Trade Center. The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center and Hong Kong’s key business district, Central, are only a 5-minute drive from the property, and Hong Kong International Airport is a 35-minute drive away.

The hotel is part of a 28-story mixed-use development with retail outlets on the ground and first floors. It is anticipated to have 820 guest rooms, an executive lounge, three distinctive dining venues and over 1,700 square meters of event spaces as well as recreational facilities. Selected guest rooms will feature sweeping views of Victoria Harbour, and other rooms will offer views of the city or Victoria Park.

There’s no mention of any works to be done and the one image of a room that Marriott has supplied (this article’s featured image) is the image of a room that already exists, so it will be interesting to see if the property will be changing in any material way before the Autograph Collection sign goes up or if the owners and Marriott are happy for the property to remain in its current state.

Bottom line

The Park Lane Hotel Hong Kong will be joining the Autograph Collection in 2025 giving Marriott its thirteenth property in the area and reducing Accor’s count of Hong Kong Hotels by one. No specific date for the hotel’s move to Marriott has yet been given and as we don’t know whether any works are planned, it’s hard to guess when in 2025 the Park Lane will appear on the Marriott website.

Nevertheless, this is good news for Marriott fans and we’ll bring you further details of the Park Lane’s integration into the Bonvoy program as soon as we get them from Marriott.
