    To celebrate its 85th anniversary next year, The Peninsula Hong Kong has begun a HK$450 million (US$58 million) refurbishment of its 300 guest rooms with new digital enhancements. The first completed phase was unveiled yesterday.

    The iconic hotel -- which first opened in 1928 -- aims to finish its renovations by April 2013, in time for celebrating its milestone birthday.

    For the first phase, the rooms in the Peninsula Tower -- an extension of the hotel built in 1994 -- have been completely transformed.

    Gone are the brocade and the gilt chandeliers. The new rooms have a pared-down Oriental chic feel, with plain cream upholstery, drawer handles derived from vintage luggage and Chinese ink painting-inspired ornaments.

    The facelift is focused on guestrooms, while The Peninsula Hong Kong's well-known lobby and its restaurants and bars will remain unchanged.

    Funny, I had read elsewhere that the renovation was already done. Guess not!
