“The Excelsior has always been an important and much-loved hotel in the Group’s portfolio,” said James Riley, group chief executive of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group.
“We will ensure there are plenty of opportunities over the next few months for local and international guests to visit the property and celebrate 45 years of memories. The hotel has enjoyed a long and successful history, not least because of the extraordinary service provided by our colleagues on property through the years.”
The news will be a blow to fans of the hotel, a popular destination among Business Traveller readers. The Excelsior has become known for its Dickens Bar as well as its Michelin-recommended restaurant, Yee Tung Heen.
