Sleek and luxury; adjectives not generally associated with student run establishments, however, Hotel ICON is an exception, owned by Hong Kong Polytechnic University, this high –end hotel successfully integrates teaching, learning and research into a full-service environment. Located in Tsim Sha Tsui East (TST) next to the Science Museum and Hong Kong Museum of History, Hotel ICON’s interior is a testimony to Hong Kong’s vibrant arts scene, blending styles from some of the country’s best talent -over 100 specially commissioned works-of-art by local artists are showcased.

Hotel ICON is also a proven leader in fashion due to its close links with fashion graduates, most notably, internationally renowned fashion designer and Hong Kong Polytechnic alumni Vivienne Tam, who has lent her aesthetic to the luxury hotel via her signature suite on the 27th floor. The stunning suite with its sweeping views of Victoria Harbour, is decorated with Chinese antiques, and a ceiling inspired by traditional grand Chinese houses. There are also contemporary pieces by Vivienne herself, including a portrait of ‘Opera Girl’; made entirely of Swarovski crystals; created for her line of accessories during 2011 and inspired by the Chinese Kun opera.
