Hong Kong, 1 August 2017 – Gateway Hotel and Prince Hotel have each been honoured with a TripAdvisor® Certificate of Excellence. It is the seventh consecutive year that both Marco Polo hotels have been awarded the prestigious Certificate of Excellence since the awards were inaugurated in 2011.

To qualify, a business must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five, have a minimum number of reviews and must have been listed on TripAdvisor for at least 12 months.
