I stayed at Crowne Plaza as my usual hotel in Causeway Bay was sold out. But I think I am converted and will return. I use cabs frequently whenever I am in Hong Kong for work. Compared to the other hotel, the queue for taxi at Crowne Plaza was very much shorter. Distance-wise Crowne Plaza is less accessible to where I usually attend meetings, and traffic can be worse too (especially when returning to the hotel in the evenings). However Crowne Plaza is a winner when it comes to getting me a taxi in the mornings. Crowne Plaza is also very near to Times Square (for shopping and also for the trains if that is preferred). And Mak's wanton noodles is just across the road. Its location is thus a big plus for me. The rooms are fresh and of decent size. Internet access (wired, wifi) is not free though.
