Hong Kong is a mesmerizing city full of life and energy and lots of exciting places to explore. With so many temptations to seduce the travelers, knowing where to stay and having a well-planned itinerary is essential to experience the city to the fullest. Staying at Dorsett Mongkok will fulfill that desire and let one experience what a day is like being a local.
With every traveler’s needs in mind, Dorsett Mongkok is here to present an all-inclusive 24-hour Experience Package, particularly for those fascinated with local culture and custom. This package offers 30% off Executive Room with starting rate from HK$770. Guests will receive 2 meal vouchers from two selected local style coffee shops and enjoy free lounge access along with other value-added benefits.
Discover the Fascinating Neighbourhood Abounds With Local Eats and Culture
Located within 7-minute walk from the Olympic Station, Dorsett Mongkok presents a convenient base for travelers to travel between Kowloon, Hong Kong Island, as well as Tung Chung where one can access to Disneyland in just about 35-minute.
“The fascinating fact about staying at Dorsett Mongkok is that its surrounding streets are teeming with cha chaan teng (Hong Kong-style coffee shops), local street food, Chinese tea parlours and so on. One of the world’s cheapest Michelin-starred restaurants, Tim Ho Wan Dim Sum specialist, is actually only an 8-minute walk away.
If you are an early-riser, you may take a walk to the nearby wet markets and enjoy a bowl of piping hot congee dipped with deep-fried Chinese donuts after that to start the day off like any local,” said Ms Anita Chan, General Manager of Dorsett Mongkok, Hong Kong.
“There is something equally interesting for the night-owls as well. Take a stroll to the popular markets like Ladies Market and Temple Street, and if your haggling skill is good you will probably end up paying half of the original price for the goods. This is the fun of street-shopping where haggling culture is quite common in any open markets in Hong Kong,” she continues.
The 24-hour Experience Starts Even Before Guests’ Arrival Book directly on hotel website to enjoy the 24-hour Full Stay service with 3-day advance notice. If guest arrives at 5pm, he/she will get to enjoy the next 24-hour stay and check-out at 5pm the next day.
During check-in, guests will receive a carefully curated ‘Eat & Shop Like A Local’ travel guidebook which includes a list of handpicked restaurants, wet markets and sight-seeing places that are within 5-15 minutes’ walk or bus drive from the hotel.
For weekenders who desperately need a well-guided tour, check out the 24-hour Itinerary in the ‘Eat & Shop Like A Local’ travel guidebook. With the useful local insider tips, time-starved travelers will be able to maximize their time in the city to discover the hidden gems that are normally not mentioned in the travel guidebooks, and they can be sure to have a collection of yummy food photos to post on Instagram or Facebook!
Free meal vouchers are also included in the package such as Soupreme, a Michelin-recommended restaurant specialised in Cantonese stewed soup and a celebrities-owned cha chaan teng (coffee shop) Chrisly Café, which is famous for its fluffy scrambled eggs and thick toast served with ‘Normal Meal’ otherwise known as ‘shueng chan’ in Cantonese.
Free Lounge Access, Dorsett Wine Hour and Kids’ Happy Hour Every Friday Evening
Guests who book this package will get free access to the hotel lounge that opens from 6am – 11pm daily to enjoy free-flow of wine and snacks during the evening time or relax on the full-body massage chair available in the lounge.
What is even more exciting is the Dorsett Wine Hour that happens every Friday evening for every guest! Guests will be served with free-flow of house white and red and Thai-style finger food. Happy Hour for kids is also available every Friday evening with a candy corner set up in the lobby. If anyone wants to know the sort of candies Hong Kong kids grow up with, check out the candy bar!
If staying indoor for a quiet evening is what a guest would prefer after a long day of outing, yet, not wanting to miss out on the flavourful local delicacies, “We Bring The Local Flavour to Your Room” takeaway menu is available with more than 15 types of local dishes to order from 3pm to 11pm.
