Chinachem Group Celebrates the Grand Opening of 254-room
L’hotel élan in Hong Kong's Business Hub of Kwun Tong

(September 26, 2012, Hong Kong)
L’hotel Management Company Limited (L’hotel Group) under Chinachem Group announced the Grand Opening of its fourth hotel, L’hotel élan on September 19, 2012. The Opening Ceremony was hosted by Dr. Kung Yan-sum, Executive Director of Chinachem Group & Chairman of the Group Executive Committee; accompanied by Ms. Sylvia Chung, General Manager of Hotel Development and Operations of Chinachem Group. Ms Gaile Lai and Mr Real Ting, who have been appointed as the “Lifestylists of L’hotel élan”, joined the officiating party at the Opening Ceremony to grace the occasion. Moreover, over 400 political and business elites attended this celebration which was one of the most well received events in Hong Kong’s hospitality industry.

L’hotel élan, which is wholly-owned and managed by Chinachem Group and its fourth addition to its hotel property portfolio, soars amid the rapidly developing business hub of Kwun Tong, and offers 254 spacious rooms and suites as the first boutique-style business hotel in the district. With a chic and contemporary hotel design and state-of-the-art facilities selected by the professional hotel management team, L’hotel élan redefines art, style and technology, putting together hospitality design and urban vibes for a brand new hotel experience, targeting at international discerning travellers who want to get connected with the outside world at all time, stay young at heart and look for a modern and stylish lifestyle.

Chinachem Group has been actively expanding its hotel and serviced apartments business over the past few years.  Ranked top three of Hong Kong’s largest local hotel chain in terms of number of guestrooms, Chinachem Group, operated under the L’hotel brand, currently fully owns and manages four hotels in Hong Kong, offering around 2,600 guestrooms. The four L’hotel properties include L’hotel Nina et Convention Centre, the Group’s flagship hotel located in Tsuen Wan, L’hotel Causeway Bay Harbour View, L’hotel Island South and the new L’hotel élan. After the Grand Opening of L’hotel élan, L'hotel Group will launch a new project in early 2013 – a hotel & serviced apartment property with a brand new concept in Kowloon West. Meanwhile, the Group is actively planning for developing and managing hotel projects in Mainland China.

Over 400 guests and media joined the officiating party on stage to witness the official opening of Chinachem’s 4th hotel properties in Hong Kong.

Dr. Kung addressed at the Opening Ceremony, “Kwun Tong has been developing most rapidly in Kowloon East with ambitious emergence of Grade A commercial buildings and large-scale shopping malls in Kwun Tong’s commercial district in response to the Hong Kong Government’s ‘Energizing Kowloon East Scheme’.  In addition to the completion to the Hong Kong cruise terminal in the near future, Kwun Tong will soon be transformed into another important business hub in Kowloon where the demand for boutique-style business hotels will be growing steadily. L’hotel élan grasps the opportunity and offers professional hospitality services with comfort and style to both business and leisure travellers.”
