My husband and I took a trip in August and despite having been to Hong Kong several times, it was our stay at the Ritz this time round that made all the difference. Located just above the Kowloon MTR, it's 24 minutes from the airport (using the Airport Express) and on your way back to the airport, you get to check in all your luggage at the MTR (so no lugging of your loot around).
Needless to say, the staff and service were impeccable. The moment you arrive at the ground floor, they take your bags and when you arrive at the reception (Level 103), you'd be greeted by attentive staff to assist you with your check-in. The staff we met on our trip, in particular Declan, Russell and Jessica, were well-trained and ready to provide any assistance, including recommendations of local attractions.
We stayed in a club room on Level 109 and the view of Victoria Harbour was breath-taking. We had free access to the club lounge which was a great place for chilling (and business talks too, saw a few going on). We also made use of the free Limousin service and took a ride to Prince Edward one of the days and the driver was most helpful. The swimming pool and gym looked great too but we forgot to bring our gear and so, didn't make use of those facilities.
One thing though, I suspect because we were so high up, mobile phone reception was poor but the hotel's free wifi made up for it.
Thank you for the fantastic experience, Hong Kong will never be the same again for us :)
