Crowne Plaza Hotel Hong Kong Causeway Bay
Ranked #42 of 723 Hotels in Hong Kong
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 10 January 2010

I'll be back - its only 2 months old and they've got the formula right from the get go. The staff are pleasant and the decor very 2010. The hotel is located near a corner site and like all buildings in Hong Kong, thin yet wide - one central corridor with rooms either side.

The hotel is situated on a main road in Causeway Bay and a few blocks away from the legendary Times Square shopping area - the location is excellent.

There's tons of space in the room considering the site and every conceivable thing is catered for - AV inputs for computer to 50" LCD TV, iPod dock, surround sound (ok - I love gadgets!). The bathroom has a moveable bedroom wall which exposes the bathroom and also means you can see TV while taking a shower (yes - the bathroom speaker works great). The marble bathroom contains a bath (not spa) and monsoon / removable shower choice. The desk is well positioned so you can work with natural outside light over the shoulder. The bed is huge and "firm but fair" with a pillow menu on offer.

Being an internet guy, I think the Hotel could do better with getting reasonable priced / free Internet on offer. After my 24 hours expired, I searched for free wireless alternatives outside the window. The cost of HK$140 / 24 hours is a little on the high / silly side.

The Gym is amazing - it's such a prime position overlooking the HK Jockey Club on the top floor and is small yet you don't feel overwhelmed with machines. Though tempting, the bar on the the same floor (which is just reward after working out!?) overlooking the city and the heated pool (kept at 28 deg we are told). The outdoor shower by the pool is a one of the world's strangest places to cleanse before a dip! very cool.

Downstairs from here (two flights of stairs) is the "Pavilion" which is a Sky Garden and with the combination of seating, small ponds and great service, this place is a great hangout over Hong Kong.

We only ate breakfast at the restaurant in the morning. The selection and service is excellent and I recommend the dim sum for breakfast! Beware though of the over-zealous staff who will remove your used plate a nano-second after you've eaten the last morsel on it. The Espresso is excellent.

Crowne Plaza must be very proud of this property - I'm coming back for more one day.

We stayed for three nights at this new hotel which we found thru the IHG family and friends rate facebook website. The only complaint or only an inconvenience for me was the unavailability of connecting rooms which was nicely explained to me but everything else was great, in room mobile phones you can use within hk, a great desktop charger that charges any brand of cellphone you can ever own, free fast broadband in-room access, flush usb port, a great phillips bedside clock, new and classy bathroom fixtures and a nice surprise, a sliding panel which reveals the glass shower panel enclosure. Better than my star last year at the excelsior. Location was also great as very near times square and shopping areas, my kids love going to the 2nd floor club lounge for their drinks and snacks, only if they provide more hot snack it would be perfect. Check-out was quite prompt and efficient, the heated swimming pool was excellent with excellent views all around and the daily buffet breakfast was quite good for a four star hotel. Definitely the best hotel in causeway bay now in my opinion.

Not too pricy in terms of 5 stars hotels in Hong Kong.
Great services, spacious rooms and unbeatable location.
Nice drinking place at the top.

The hotel is 4.5 star, nicer than I thought a Crowne Plaza would be (perhaps they've upgraded the brand). Although the lobby is small and modest, the rooms are plenty roomy, and that includes the bathroom too. Everything is brand new at this time, and the service is excellent to boot.

The hotel is only 15 minutes' walk to Happy Valley, 10 mins to the race track and sporting grounds, and mere minutes away to the heart of Causeway Bay - Times Square.

I've stayed at several hotels in the Causeway Bay area, and I must say that my stay at the new Crowne Plaza is the best one yet! It's quite new, opened just 2 weeks ago, so everything is still fresh.

The room is great --- modern yet functional. It's a bit small, but that goes for all hotel rooms in Hongkong. The bathroom though is big! I love how they used one glass door for the bathtub and the shower.

Best part of the room - the 40+ inch flatscreen with dvd player and 5.1 surround sound speakers! It just looks great on that wall.

Great location also....just a few blocks from Times Square and the MTR Station.

The rates are a bit pricey in my opinion, and for a solo traveler I think it's a bit too much. Good for couples and families though. For solo travelers, I would still recommend Cosmopolitan Hotel or Holiday Inn Express which are located a few blocks away.

Good tip btw - I booked in advance a round trip airport shuttle bus by calling the hotel desk. They charged 280HKD (140/way) to my room bill. But when I arrived at the airport, found out that you can book on the spot at 220HKD round trip. These buses don't get full, so it's ok to book when you arrive.

We had a pleasant stay there. The room and service were great. The location was good, very close to Times Square where they are plenty of shopping and eating, and subway entrance. Good room size, very nice design with glass shower stall that can see through to the room but can be closed with wall panel for privacy. They were still working out a few minor kinks since it just opened but overall I would have given a 5 star if it weren't for the "scam" at checkout. When we checkout, the clerk asked if we'd like to lock in the US$ rate so we don't have to wait for our credit card to convert as the rate changes daily. We thought that would be good so we went ahead and accept their US rate. In hindsight, we should have asked what was the conversation rate they used. It turned out to be 7.47, far from the average of 7.75. In fact, our credit card used 7.749. So don't fall for that pitch about locking in your conversation rate!!! That's the only reason I gave a 3 start.
