Stayed here for a weekend (3 nights) in November 2012.
Took a cab to the hotel. Our taxi driver didn't know how to find it so he dropped us off near Times Square and we walked around for about 15-20 minutes until we found Leighton Rd and the hotel.
First impressions of the hotel -- really nice exterior stone detailing. Ground floor is concierge and a small courtyard with tables. Went up to 1st floor for check-in. Was suprised to be upgraded to a Deluxe room and free wifi!!! Staff was really great and everyone spoke good English.
LOCATION: Location turned out to be really good. Once you know your way to Times Square (passing by Lee Garden mall) it is really a nice walk. About 8-10 minutes walk from hotel to Times Square/SOGO. The shops around Lee Garden mall are all top-end designer brands, (Cartier, Gucci, Miu Miu, etc.) so if you aren't looking for that type of stuff then you can only enjoy the window displays =\
There is also a 7-Eleven, a fruit stall and some small eateries (froyo, pizza, ramen joint, burger joint) across the street from the hotel.
ROOM: We got upgraded to a Deluxe room. View was across to another building and part of the street, nothing great. Had a little kitchenette, couch and computer desk. Room was clean, smelled good. Only problem was that the carpets could use some cleaning. Bathroom was clean and the products they have are really good. (can't remember the brand name but the mrs. swiped a couple to take home)
SERVICE: Didn't have the breakfast so can't comment on the food or service there. The concierge was really spot-on though. ALWAYS smiling, even if we came back at 1 AM. Asked them for some good cha siu and they recommended a nice place near Lee Garden mall. They always translated our location into Cantonese to tell the taxi drivers. 5 stars for sure. Gym is 24 hours and is also quite nice.
Overall: Lanson Place HK really delivered. A great location, close by the Times Square/SOGO action yet quiet enough away from the bright lights. Great staff & amenities but carpets could use some cleaning and a bit tough to locate.
