Good question. I don’t think Regent has its own loyalty program though, does it? So Regent’s frequent stayers would be IHG elites.

I checked and I don't think they do. Rosewood is next door to IC/Regent HK right? I didn't checked when I was there, but as a customer why would I pick Regent if I don't have any incentive to do so other than cost?

I found this rendering of what will be the Regent Hong Kong's new exterior; looks like they're recladding the building with blue glass and adding geometric light blades to gussy the old girl up. For some reason, I can't get the embed function to work so here's the link: https://i.postimg.cc/PqP23FnN/Screen...4-02-35-PM.png

Will be keeping an eye on this one to see what IHG has in store for the brand's flagship.

We have closed this thread, as the IC Hong Kong is now history. But an old new chapter will start when this hotel will become the Regent Hong Kong. So we will for sure create a new master thread of the Regent Hong Kong in the near future. Untl then, we have the IC Hong Kong Master Thread (renovation thread until 2022) thread.

I am closing this thread
