I've been in and out of Hong Kong many times over the past few years. I've stayed in Four Season's, Shagrila, LKF hotel, Excelsior hotel, and this time Landmark Mandarin Oriental for 5 nights.
I can say that Landmark is hands down THE best location if you are looking for a place in central. It is right along Queen's Road Central (which is the main road in Central Hong Kong). The moment you step out you are right in the heart of the city. The MTR train is connected within the landmark mall itself, so you don't even need to step outdoors to get to the train station, you can just walk through the mall/hotel. You can go to IFC mall via the skybridge and reach there in less than 10 minutes sheltered walk. You can reach many restaurants such as Yung Kee Roast Goose, Tsim Chai Kee wanton noodles, Tai Cheong egg tarts in less than 10mins walk. The only other good hotel with almost equally good location is LKF by Rhombus, but it is a boutique hotel with a club on the top floor and right above Lan Kwai Fong (club and bars district) so it can get pretty noisy on weekends.
If you're talking about location, this is definitely better than Four Season's (10 minutes walk from Central) or Shangrila (which on top of Pacific Place mall and not in Central).
Drawback is that the entrance is small and the hotel entrance and size isn't exactly very grand (because land in this area is incredibly expensive). If you want a bigger room and a "grand" feeling when you walk in the hotel, pick Four Seasons.
So ultimately, if you prefer location and you're willing to pay for it, pick Landmark. If you want a bigger room and a "grander" hotel, take Four Seasons. If you want to be at Pacific Place mall at Admiralty (which is one MTR stop from Central), pick Shangrila (although Shangrila is quite an old hotel). All 3 have very good service (but I think Landmark has the best service).
If you stay in Landmark, be sure to ask them how to get to the MTR via the mall and also how to get to IFC and other buildings through the skybridge/2nd Floor of Landmark Mall. Guarantee you'll love the location. From now on all my future visits to Hong Kong I will be staying at Landmark. The location is just too good!
