My Family and I went for afternoon tea on thursday 29th October. The location and views over central park were excellent. We ordered the afternoon tea, which was in my opinion very poor. The Scones were good, however the selection of cakes and sweets was uninspiring and limited (do they have a full-time pastry chef at this hotel!) Avoid this hotel if you are used to expecting high standards when it comes to afternoon tea. The management need to visit the Mandarin Oriental or Grand Hyatt in Hong Kong, or either of the Langham hotels in Hong Kong, or Browns hotel in London, here you will experience a proper afternnoon tea, with a comprehensive range of cakes etc. I felt like complaining but did not want to spoil the occaision for my family. As an aside the light snack menu that other guests were served, did look very good !, in retrospect I should have gone for this menu, rather than the afternoon tea,
