We loved our visit to the Icon. The young, enthusiastic and delightful staff gave superb service - amongst the best we've experienced in any hotel at any price.
Whilst the location is slightly away from the centre of town, the free hotel shuttle bus, together with excellent Hong Kong City transport system doesn't make this a problem. In fact the part of Kowloon where it is situated is very buzzy.
We opted to stay in a Club room and it was extremely comfortable and the design very well thought out. Details like the well stocked free mini bar were very welcome. Ours had magnificent views over the harbour.
The extra facility given by the Club floor was excellent. In fact, with an included delicious large breakfast, full tea and copious canapés with free drinks before dinner one does not have to spend any extra money on food at all! The only problem was that due to the number of guests on the Club floor it gets a little crowded so one is advised to arrive promptly at 6.00pm for drinks when it opens. We had breakfast in the Club Floor as opposed to the main Market restaurant which we preferred - a full cooked breakfast is offered there.
Sadly we could not dine in the signature restaurant - Above and Beyond - as we had not reserved sufficiently in advance so a bit of advice if you do want to dine there reserve when you book the room.
The Public rooms were nothing amazing but perfectly functional. We ate in Greens, the second restaurant, which served good International food with an Italian edge.
All in all the Icon is up with the best International hotels worldwide at any price - a superb hotel.
Would people kindly stop giving the it rave reviews or we won't be able to get another reservation!!!
