The InterContinental Hong Kong hotel is planning to close for a major renovation in the first quarter of 2019.

The entire renovation is expected to take from 12 to 16 months, as all of the guestrooms and suites, bathrooms, public areas, restaurants and event venues will be redone. This includes a redesign of the building façade with a “new, contemporary look,” according to a written release.

The hotel’s two-Michelin star Cantonese restaurant, Yan Toh Heen, will remain open for dinner throughout the renovation, while the other restaurants and event venues are anticipated to reopen in the evenings starting in the late summer of 2019.
