I've stayed at the Okura in Tokyo and the now in Macau. Both are great. Clearly, Macau is different. It's super new, big, and plush. The rooms are big--but they still have those ever interesting Japanese toilets. Yes, heat, rinse, oscillate, dry--all in one touch! Free wifi.
The hotel linked to the casino shared with the Banyan Tree and Galaxy--yet the hotel feels a world away.
The staff on the 6th/Executive floor are amazing--professional, gracious (without being aloof/snooty like a Four Seasons), and helpful. Great English skills too. There's a huge wave pool and neat amenities that are good for the whole family.
Net, net: if you like gambling, Macau is great escape from HK and Southern China. But, leave Vegas behind--don't stay at the Venetian, Wynn, Sands...try the Okura, you'll like it.
