History of Innovation

Originally incorporated on 2 March 1866 as The Hongkong Hotel Company, Limited, HSH was one of the first companies to be listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, is currently the oldest registered company on the Hong Kong Companies Registry, and one of the world’s oldest hotel companies. For a century and a half, the compelling story of HSH has been closely tied to its city of origin, Hong Kong.

Whilst evolving to meet the changing times at home and abroad, HSH has never lost respect for its past and its heritage, and it continually strives to emulate the standards of service and style that earned it the accolade of “The Far East’s leading hotel company”. The concept of “Tradition well served” remains fundamental to HSH’s approach.

Today, the HSH legacy encompasses a diverse portfolio of assets worth HK$45 billion including ten Peninsula Hotels around the world, The Peak Tram, The Peak Tower and The Repulse Bay Complex in Hong Kong.
