“Great hotel in terrific location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

This hotel is located just steps away from the far end of the TST Promenade and the Avenue of Stars providing great access to transportation and attractions; including the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the beautiful Kowloon Park.

The rooms were spacious and spotless. Hotel offers 24-hour room service which was very welcome after a midnight arrival.

The breakfast buffet is lavish, well organized and hot foods are hot; not always something you find.

There's a pleasant lobby bar with live piano for pleasant relaxing after a busy day.

The Intercontinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong (Kowloon) is an excellent hotel, top of its class in fact. Conveniently located close to the Harbour City shopping mall, it is in an ideal position. Upon check in we were graciously invited to view the allocated room in order to ensure its suitability. The hotel is in the midst of an upgrade, though no evidence of this was observed. The foyer is magnificent featuring 2 gigantic modern crystal chandeliers and masses of fresh flowers.

The staff were extremely professional, warm, knowledgable and approachable. The check in process was seamless despite a post midnight arrival.

Our newly refurbished harbour view 6th floor room was beautifully appointed with perfect lighting, comfortable beds and was well equipped in terms of toiletries, mini bar, towelling robes and slippers.

The bathroom was spacious and featured a lit magnified make up mirror which is the best of its kind we've encountered over years of travel.

It is however the outstanding service that positions this hotel as a true 5 star experience. The housekeeping in particular was faultless with toiletry supplies replenished daily. The room service food ,and speed of service was also exceptional. We were even treated to a box of fine chocolates by our kind and attentive room service attendant. It was a very kind gesture indeed.

We will not only return to this hotel, but will recommend it to others.

Checked into the hotel 2 hours earlier than the official check in time and was offered a room without any hesitation. Ours was facing the courtyard (read: dead wall) but nonetheless, we were very impressed by how beautifully furnished and clean it was. Think it was not too long that the room was refurbished since there was still works undergoing at the top floors.

Super efficient room service staff, whom might have take the effort to ensure that our stay was a pleasant one (I noticed that they must have come in to tidy at least 4 times a day but hey, not that i'm complaining). Shoes and clothes laying all over the room were found neatly folded and arrange, clean towels and bottles of water were replenished almost immediately. Personal belonging were left untouched.

Excellent variety and quality breakfast at the buffet (unfortunately, there was no fresh juice station). Didnt like the lady who greeted us though, she came across as very insincere and cold as she led us to our table.

Otherwise, everyone else were angels, Staffs at the front desk, concierge, boys at the gym and pool including those who handled our baggage after we checked out made our stay at the hotel one to remember.

Room Tip: Choose a non- courtyard facing room.

From the minute we checked in, the management and staff at the Intercontinental Grand Stanford stole our hearts. We're not sure what gifts were given normally and what were for our Ambassador gold status, but they included a box of nine delicious chocolates, a box of about 9 madeleines, a laundry bag welcome gift, welcome fruit, a stuffed bear to apologize for our "bearing" the noise of construction (we didn't hear any), free water bottles and chocolates at bed turn-down, and coupons for welcome drinks. Our room also was upgraded from a partial harbor view to a full harbor view room, no. 537. It put us in the right mood from the start, and we never felt let down.

Plus .
Nice view of Causeway Bay (and just a little of Wanchai).
Night lite under the bedside table and under sink in bathroom
Nice heavy curtains
Wi-fi was reliable and not difficult. Automatically logged back in when boot up.
Gave us 3 pm check-out.
Mat and slippers left by bed after turn-down.
Newspaper on door.
Friendly and helpful staff
Clean, good-sized room and comfortable bed
Close to East Tsim Sha Tsui MTR entrance

Minus
Crowded buffet breakfast at coffee shop. Walkways congested with diners and staff
Some traffic noise on 5th floor but not disturbing
Never got to use welcome drinks because drinks area was full whenever we thought of it

We feel the minuses are unimportant, and we remember most the comfort of the room and the generous gifts. We enthusiastically recommend Grand Stanford as a very good value in Kowloon.

My friends are currently checked in here and the service is terrible. Joy Man checked the party in; some of their rooms were checked in after 4.30 pm, they were denied water whilst waiting and when their 2 y/o child tried to eat a biscuit from his lunchbox in the lobby, he was told that "no outside food is allowed". Terrible and quite an embarrassing reflection of the Hong Kong hospitality industry. Unfortunately, my friends had prepaid for their stay.There are many hotels to pick from in Hong Kong, I would highly recommend taking your business somewhere else.

Staying 4 nights with my family here. The hotel is great, location is perfect. Hotel facilities were well maintained and good service. Those who are in town, try the new Italian restaurant, it is awesome.
