J Plus Boutique Hotel
- Style Sleek boutique, Starck-style

- Our favourite rooms All rooms are similarly styled and Starck-ed – light and airy, with the designer’s trademark white furnishings and a play of pastels on the fixtures and fittings. Space-wise, the luxurious suites have more to offer, but the rectangular Studio Twos feel surprisingly roomy.
- Packing tips Sturdy shoes for traipsing around vibrant Causeway Bay by day. Leave suitcase space for your night-time finery too – the HK crowd likes to dress up by night.
- Also There's an iPod dock so you can play your favourite tunes on the room’s state-of-the-art sound system. From August 2012, guests will be given J Plus Insider Access Cards, entitling them to discounts at restaurants, entry to private members' clubs and a host of other perks.
