The Pininsula Hotel in Hong Kong has just ordered 14 Rolls-Royce Phantom extended wheelbase cars which are used exclusively by the hotel's guests. This is very chic! Something all guests want and need. This is not the kind of treatment you see in every hotels, only in those, like the Peninsula, that takes very good care it´s guests.

From the Peninsula's Website:
Long celebrated for its Rolls-Royces which drive guests to and from the airport and around Hong Kong, The Peninsula has been associated in excellence with Rolls-Royce for almost 40 years in a record-breaking partnership that began with the hotel's first order for seven Silver Shadows in 1970. That purchase made history for being the largest ever single order for Rolls-Royce motor cars, and over the years, The Peninsula has set new records with each successive order for Rolls-Royces, a trend that continues to this day with the hotel's eighth and latest record-breaking fleet of 14 Phantoms - the largest ever single order of this model.

With attention to detail being a hallmark of both The Peninsula and Rolls-Royce, each car has been hand-made under Roll-Royce's "Bespoke" programme, with each Phantom taking over 350 hours to build and 25 Rolls-Royce designers and engineers involved in developing a range of dedicated features to meet the hotel's specific needs.

Due to the size and complexity of the new cars, The Peninsula's Fleet Vehicle Manager and the hotel's team of chauffeurs travelled to the UK for a week of training at Rolls-Royce's dedicated technical institute. The new fleet of Phantoms also marks a significant improvement in environmental terms, offering higher amounts of power and far more space for passengers, yet consuming significantly less fuel than The Peninsula's former fleet of previous-generation Silver Spurs.
