Stayed here with my missus first week Aug 2012 for five nights.
Location excellent (ideal for shopping, nightlife and access to transport links). Very welcoming and informative front door and reception staff. Room was big although a little dated. We had a deluxe view over harbour which would have been perfect except for a major land reclamation project directly in front of the hotel. (The photo in hotel blurb is slightly misleading as part of the Marina area opposite has now gone). Room facilities very good and staff could not do enough to assist. Take advantage of turn down service. Fresh towels, water and a bathroom clean all part of the service.
Breakfast at level one was very good. We paid extra however for Executive lounge on 31st Floor. This was best value anywhere. It costs $HK250 pp per day - about £20. For that you get breakfast, lunch, evening canapes and all you can drink - not alcohol in afternoon. Also included a newspaper and internet access. Canapes were magnificent! The staff in the lounge were second to none and the manager was a delight.
Overall this was a very good base with great facilities but it was just a little dated.
If its your first time in Hong Kong use the trams, Star Ferries, funicular railway to the Peak - best views, good restaurants and shopping here. Bus ride to Stanley, Aberdeen and Repulse Bay is great fun and dirt cheap. Go over on Star Ferry to Kowloon.
Taxis everywhere and cheap but your heart will be in your mouth with traffic!
Have fun. BB2
