We stayed at the Lake View for one night mainly because the location is wonderful - right across from the Star Ferry dock and overlooking the harbor. We were interested in the fact that they have air conditioning, which many hotels on the Island don't have and an indoor pool. So, we thought we'd give it a try. When we arrived the computers were "down" and they couldn't check us in, so they stored our bags and we went to lunch at Goodfellows. The waiter seemed annoyed that my husband only ordered a salad - "It's really small, are you sure that's all you want?" My husband replied that for the $11.99 price he assumed it would be adequate, and it was. I had a personal pizza, which was fine. We paid extra for a lake view room and were disappointed to be in a 4th floor tiny garrett with a small window, no closet and a lumpy mattress. The air conditioner was a wall unit and extremely loud. The carpeting was stained and the linens thread bare. We thought we were saving money by staying at the Lake View instead of the Iroquois, where we normally stay, but learned a valuable lesson. For a little extra money we'll gladly go back to the Iroquois next time. Live and learn, I guess!
