The RC in Hong Kong is between the 102nd and 118th floor of a new building more or less atop a mall and Kowloon station of the airport express. This guarantees a room with a view, and views are the most remarkable item this hotel has. Regardless which side, the views from this high up are fantastic, though moisture and smog take a little sharpness out. Also, Hong Kong has frequently fog, but as with all weather related topics a little luck is needed.
The service is impeccable, but that was to be expected from a hotel in this price range. The
rooms are very elegant and very quiet. The hotel offers several eateries, we tried the chinese restaurant (excellent) and the lounge and bar (average) as well as the Ozone, the bar on top of the hotel. In the later expect noisy techno tunes and only a few seats have good view. The drink quality is good but also quite expensive.
I would recommend this hotel to people who actually have some time to enjoy the views and facilities. It seems a waste to me for the business crowds, who check in at 9pm and leave by 8am in the morning. It is a little far away from the shopping and tourist attractions but a subway station is also in the same complex and taking a cab in downtown Hong Kong is just a few bucks anyway.
