After taking over two luxury hotels with over 1,300 rooms between 30, China’s President Xi Jinping will want for nothing during his three-day visit.
The harbourfront Grand Hyatt and Renaissance, in the company and commercial district of Wan Chai, are usually bustling with traffic guests as well as to their bars and restaurants.
But today all entrances safeguarded by collateral as the tumultuous city stays in lockdown to get Xi’s landmark trip to mark 20 years since it was handed back to China from Britain or are blocked with metal barricades.
With it uncertain who is footing the area invoice, xi assessed in Thursday and will leave Saturday.
Local press said he’d stay in the Renaissance for safety reasons.
Staying at the Renaissance reportedly costs up to HK$28,000 ($3,586) per night, with the presidential suite including dining and living rooms, a seminar area, and a marble bath.
A suite at the Grand Hyatt prices three times as much, according to local press, with guests requested to telephone directly to withhold bespoke centers. 1 high-end suite at the hotel comes equipped with spa treatments and a giant infinity bath, according to the website.
Booking out equally hotels for two nights at even the most fundamental room rate would be worth over five million Hong Kong dollars — over 700,000 US dollars.
The Grand Hyatt confirmed to AFP that “a group of individuals” had booked out all of its rooms, while the adjoining Renaissance would not comment on structures.
Visitors typically select the Hyatt, but stop short of reserving out the one next door and the whole hotel.
The hotels are next to the conference centre that’s the focal point for the anniversary parties and is guarded with a large security cordon, such as machine-gun toting police officers and two-metre large (6.56 feet) waterfilled barricades.
Police are anxious to continue to keep protesters away from Xi, who is visiting for the first time since he became leader in 2013, since tensions remain high and concerns grow the town’s freedoms are being threatened by Beijing.
The closest protest area to the hotels is nearly 500 metres (1,640 feet) away and the famous Victoria Harbour has changed into a limited flying zone.
