Been twice to the icon hotel. The first time we were upgraded to the club room without the benefits, meaning dining at the market and not at the lounge. Due to last minutes change of planes we returned to Hong Kong and had to take the club room for real. Many people recommend paying for the club rooms, reading made no sense to us at the time, but boy, oh boy, it does make all the difference! Dinning in The market is o.k., even better then o.k., but dinning in the lounge – it is a whole different experience – The quality of the service and the food is, indeed, above and beyond expectations. Superb quality of patisserie, canapes, and drinks plus the view of the harbor and the cozy atmosphere. It is such a pressure relief knowing you are going to come back from a long day of walking and climbing, not having to worry about food – afternoon tea scones and whats not, such a blessing:) and then in the evening cocktails and canapes.
The concierge service is the best service we've encountered in our many many trips around the world. Great tips on how to avoid lines and traffic, great directions points on maps etc. you can tell they know their job and care about it, especially Cody, the assistance concierge, what a remarkable young man.
Some people complain about the location of the hotel, but, for us it was one off it's advantages – since it is far from Tsim Sha Tsui, they have a shuttle every 20 minutes, so you can get to the Star Line Ferry to Central with the shuttle and back to the hotel, which has been extremely convenient.
The room was so lovely, great design, except for the shower – splashes all over the place, but the bathtub, amazing.
Also if you ever eat at the Green – the onion soup is a must. This hotel is a culinary gem.
We used the hotels' car to and from the airport, which was a nice and comfy way to see Hong Kong.
