Our stay was during the East Asian Games. The opening ceremony was around Hong Kong Harbour so we booked a Deluxe Harbour View Room to see the fireworks. In reality the sofa and desk were nowhere near the window and bed was set a bit further back creating a deadspace in front of window, so the view was completely wasted IMO. They built this hotel from scratch so found the long skinny configuration a bit strange.
Decor was very China glamour, dark wood, gold leaf, cream, funny fixtures, so luxurious-esque but not really our cup of tea. I did like the sofa though. The sunken round bath tub which was the main draw for us was difficult to get in and out, so again the design was not well thought through. Service was average. Room was sound proofed, but not the bathroom. - we had a old men/young escorts tourists as neighbours over the weekend and one of the girls was a funny screamer. Annoying but we found ourselves laughing.
Location was OK. We have stayed at the Shama serviced appartment next door, so knew what to expect. Its not terribly great for dining, a couple of good dim sum places nearby, but close enough to the restaurants and bustle of CWB which made the location acceptable. The quickest way is by tram in my opinion.
We booked because it was new and we were tempted by the seaview. The price was quite good too. In the end the overall experience was underwhelmingly average and we should have opted for our other choice the Crowne Plaza in CWB. Oh well!
