Found this hotel online, read some positive reviews on TripAdvisor and so went ahead and booked via the hotel's website.
My partner and I suddenly found that we could take a short vacation and zeroed in on Hong Kong. I was returning to that city after 20 years and my partner had never been there before. This trip was put together rather hurriedly but thanks to Jet Airways and Royal Park Hotel (located in the Shatin area of HK) this has become a most memorable vacation.
We booked the Royal Package for 4 nights, which included a Buffet Breakfast, Evening Cocktails with hors d'oeuvres. Check-in was a breeze and we were personally guided by a cheerful young guest manager to our luxurious Executive room with a good view.
Although this property is located away from the popular Tsimshatsui area, the hotel offers complimentary shuttle service (please check for their daily schedule with the hotel lobby) throughout the day. In any case, the hotel is also connected to the Sha Tin subway station and this is another plus. The New Town Plaza shopping mall is connected to this hotel but I did prefer the other shopping opportunities elsewhere in HK.
My partner is a vegetarian and we were a little apprehensive about food choices but we had nothing to worry about either at breakfast or for the cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.
This package also offers complimentary airport shuttle. Remember to check for the schedule to see if it matches your flight.
The main lobby is a little crowded and the reception folks a little too aloof but the Executive Lobby's personnel made up with their cheerfulness and helpfulness.
Thinking of making a another trip next year and will most probably stay at this hotel again.
The Royal Package gives you real value for your money.
