We were very happy with this hotel. The rooms are great. They include an almost full-size refrigerator and a wet bar. The bed is very comfortable and we had a nice view of the city. The breakfast buffet was also very good. There was a nice flat screen TV but slim pickings for English speakers. Mainly CNN and BBC that keep repeating the same stories over and over, CNBC, and a few sport stations.
A couple of small things happened that are no big deal but it helps to know. There are a few internet stations in the lobby, one for English speakers and one for Chinese speakers. Someone from the front desk has to come over to the station and log you on. There may be a way to print, but we couldn't figure it out. Something about an e drive. I would expect a hotel as nice as this to have a station where guests can print boarding passes without paying for internet time.
Another thing was that even though breakfast was included, we still had to sign a check for it, which was a little weird. They said it was "for their records," but why???? It felt a little uncomfortable to be signing something as if there was a charge for it.
The hotel is in the middle of a very nice mall. I think next time we go to Hong Kong we will stay on Hong Kong island. It took about half an hour for cabs and the airport shuttle to get out of the parking lot of the mall, which was a bit of a drag. On the plus side, it is very near three subway stops.
We would definitely stay at the Royal Plaza again if we could not find a good deal on Hong Kong Island.
