“Unreal, modern, clean, great rooms, good food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2010

Great new modern hotel.
We spent one night only in HK but this was recomended by a friend living in HK.
12mth old at the time, great rooms, so funky and spacious. Bathrooms are trendy and huge, very upper class and high tech tv and ipod ports.
Short walk to Times Square and massage place. Had a great massage down the road which was reccommended by hote.
We missed b'fast as we accidently slept in.
Had buffet for dinner one evening, too much food, would had rathered a proper meal. Lamb was very under cooked and looked horrible. But, that was the only little thing wrong. Otherwise, FAB hotel. Nice pool area and bar upstairs.

We stayed at this hotel as I wished to goto the races at happy valley. we arrived to very courteous staff and couldn't believe the view of the room of happy valley , we had room 1401, overlooking the track, fantastic, the bath is also overlooking the track and surrounding area. The rooms have the latest gadgets, including DVD player, IPOD player and I was offered free internet, which these days should be free I think anyway at hotels.
The pool on the top floor is well worth a visit, more great views.
All in all one of the better Crowne Plaza's I have stayed at worldwide, Highly recommend.
One last thing, which we love , we did not here a thing all night, so quite, fantastic.

This hotels was first class - location is great (right behind Times Square) and a 5 minute walk from the MTR. The rooms are outstanding and we managed to get an upgrade with a view of the Happy Valley Racecourse. Couldn't fault a thing - rooms, restaurant, bar - all A++++++++. Would definitely stay here when in Hong Kong next time

Stayed at the Crowne Plaza Causeway Bay in September for 3 nights. Overall very good hotel and nothing too negative.

The location of the hotel is good, being few hundred meters away from Causeway Bay metro station and the Time Square. However if you arrive with big luggage perhaps you would want to avoid the metro – it’s a long walk after leaving the train.

Check in was done efficiently although the staff wasn’t particularly friendly. However this is Hong Kong and unless you stay at some $$$ hotels don’t expect too much smile.

Room is very clean and well design. I particularly like the TV system and the funky bathroom. It’s definitely the best Crowne Plaza I have stayed at. The room is also very quiet. Agree on previous review that the rooms with view toward Happy Valley are much better than city view.

During my stay I made the most of the roof top swimming pool. It’s essential during the summer months. Sometimes I was just tired of browsing the endless shopping malls and this place is an oasis. I found shopping in Hong Kong actually very boring and expensive, so tend to spend my time eating Dim Sum, swimming and do a bit sightseeing. Service at the pool side was great.

Overall this is a very solid hotel but next time I might try some other new additions (Upper House perhaps).

This is a brand new hotel and is certainly the best Crowne Plaza I've stayed in.

Rooms and facilities are excellent - particularly the very cool bars on 27th and 28th floors. Room prices are very reasonable (I got a corporate rate), but the bars are quite pricey. Try and ask for Happy Valley view rooms as the City views are a bit disappointing from the lower floors.

The only thing missing is a high end in house restaurant. The food in the ground and first floor casual eating areas is fine though. Only slightly negative comment is the western breakfast buffet foods are limited in choice, so best to ask for freshly made items. There are plenty of Asian and Western cafes in the area for those not wanting to spend HKD200 on breakfast. There is a large range of eating places for the evening too.

The free wifi and local mobile service is a great idea and I wish more hotels would offer these kind of "extras" as standard.

The location in the heart of one of the main shopping areas is not ideal for sightseeing or nightlife, however taxis or MTR to Wanchai and Central are cheap and easy. If you are visiting on business to the technology companies based in Times Square/Lee Gardens the hotel is only a 5 minute walk.

Great location for shoppers and those who are after a more urban location in HK. A very stylish hotel, with spacious and very well appointed rooms. It fully understands needs of business travellers, and implements little things that make their stay a lot easier. A good television with iPod dock, speakers and great range of channels. Each room also comes with a mobile phone that doubles as a hotel phone, so you can stay connected while out of the hotel – a sensational idea. The common areas are also top class, with a spacious restaurant, well-manned business centre and an outdoor smoking patio. The two floors at the top of the hotel are also public areas. The 27th floor holds a fantastic lounge-style patio, with great outdoor seating, city views and, in the evenings, beverage service. The top floor holds a bar and swimming pool deck. Again, amazing décor. We were there over the weekend so saw first hand how busy the hotel can get. There was a pool party on on Sunday afternoon, which I found quite odd, but interesting nonetheless. It was clearly a function organised by outside guests, but in-house guests were able to use the pool deck and dodge the entry fee - although two families that had obviously planned a quiet afternoon by the pool didn’t seem pleased with the inconvenience of a pool party (that was not out of hand but messy nonetheless). I must admit that I share this disappointment with them. This came after the bar being closed for a private function the day before. Staff were helpful and courteous but there were long waits, specially at reception on check in and check out. Overall a great stay, seeing that I was there on leisure, but had I been there on business and after some quiet time, I would have been disappointed with the lack of care for in-house guests privately using the facilities.

Usually I’m not a fan of this kind of hotel, most of the time, charm less and without any interest. However, surprisingly, the experience at Crowne Plaza Causeway Bay has been more than good.
Located in the busy but super trendy area of Causeway Bay facing the race course of Happy Valley, this new and elegant hotel offers an excellent quality of service and comfort. Right away you’ll arrive, you’ll be welcome by a very friendly and efficient staff. We arrived late at night and immediately after I said we booked for a Crowne Plaza Club room, a charming girl escorted us to the second floor for a private check in next to the Club Lounge. Everything has been done with elegance, professionalism and a lot of kindness asking us how was our flight, giving us details about the benefits of the Club lounge… Unfortunately, nobody escorted us into our room and in a five stars hotel we expect this service…
Anyway, we discovered the room by ourselves. Nicely decorated, very spacious and with a fantastic view on Happy Valley (very interesting on Wednesday evening when there are race courses…). We found the bathroom extremely comfortable with a separate rain shower opened on the bedroom (but you still can close a wood door if you wanna privacy…) and a deep bathtub. There is a very good equipment in the room and even a mobile phone not to miss any call when you go out (A precious service free of charge and only the calls you’ll give will be charged).
Regarding the breakfast, we have been very happy to have a very good buffet with an extensive choice and a great quality of food (the smoked salmon was excellent) and again, a very nice staff to take care of you and especially Maggie who has been so nice with us…
But, if I have to select one specific thing making of this hotel a very special place in HK, it would be the amazing terrace at the 37th floor named Pavilion. A huge perfectly designed space where you can enjoy a cocktail with the most beautiful views and a nice wind. We went there for a drink and we were so good we finally had a light dinner in a wonderful atmosphere, trendy, cool and relaxing. On the upper floor, there is even a pool, not so large, but very good and again with excellent views and a bar more and more popular in HK with a beautiful crowd.
So, let’s say this hotel is truly a great choice and for this quality, the rates are just impressive. For under HKD 1800 per night, this is a gift…
There are just a few details to improve like a disagreeable smell in the lobby or an average quality of amenities but this is probably the best choice you can do in HK if you don’t wanna make your bank account empty and find a place which is able to exceed the highest expectations.
