Rolls Royce Phantoms Delivered To Peninsula Hotel

Rolls Royce At Peninsula HotelThe Peninsula Hotel in Hong Kong has been shuttling guests to and from the airport and around town in Rolls-Royce automobiles since 1970, when it took delivery of a then-record seven Silver Shadows. Thus began a tradition that saw the hotel place the single largest order for Rolls-Royce automobiles several times throughout the decades.

The Peninsula has outdone itself, taking delivery of fourteen long-wheelbase Phantoms built to custom specifications through RR’s Bespoke program. Each car is finished in Brewster Green with a tan stripe, and has been customized with Bespoke features such as Peninsula Hotel sill plates, an enlarged trunk, a coolbox to store chilled towels, compartments for used towels in the doors, MP3 jacks for the rear seats, relocated rear-seat climate controls, repositioned and enhanced lighting, and even “No Smoking” plaques.

Those (and more) are in addition to the already-opulent standard equipment list that includes 12″ LCD screens in the rear seat snack trays, a high-end 420-watt sound system, privacy curtains, and the Great Intangibles: that signature grille and the iconic flying lady on the hood.

The size of the purchase, the cars themselves, and the hotel that’ serves as their home can only be described as impressive. And to think, we’re happy when the hotels we stay at send a branded Econoline to whisk us away from the airport.
