Last Night at the Excelsior

31st March 2019, Hong Kong

The Excelsior hotel, a 46-year old 4-star hotel located in Causeway Bay, was shut down for good on 31st March, 2019 following the decision of its owners to demolish the building and redevelop it into an office tower. Originally opened in February 20th, 1973, the hotel was built on the first lot of land auctioned to the British colonial government. 

These photos are from its last night of operation on 30th March, 2019, spanning until the morning of its last day.
