I was booked in to the East by a colleague at work - since my APAC office is in the same complex - Cityplaza , Taikoo Shing, Hong Kong.
I guess the rates I stayed on were preferential, corporate rates.
Service at the check in desk was extremely efficient.I had a very well appointed room and was extremely comfortable.
It was described as an urban view room - in other words - it faced the apartment blocks located behind the hotel - which I was not too thrilled with !
I would have had to pay a premium for a harbour facing room - which I did not want to make a fuss about - since it was an official trip.
I did, however, request for an upgrade to a harbour view room which i did not get :((
One thing that disconcerted me - my room had floor to ceiling glass windows which allowed a huge number of houses an unrestricted view of me - unless I completely shut the blinds at night.
More so since the attached washroom was an open one - with no door and and an almost complete glass wall !
Superb from a location perspective - I had to walk through the mall next door to my office - which took all of 5 minutes if I did not get distracted.
Look forward to the magic of a harbour view next time !
