The hotel is located next to the Wanchai Convention Center, so it's convenient to those visiting Hong Kong for convention events. It's about eight-minute walk from the Wanchai MTR station. Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsu is five minutes away. Taxis are easy to get. The location is perfect!
The hotel is undergoing renovation to modernize the rooms. The renovated rooms are okay and are smaller than before. My only complaint, though, is the light switches. One has no idea what the light switch does until one flips it - it's maddening! Other than that, the room setup is perfect, with all the high-quality amenities. The hotel staff always provide great service with a smile.
There are many restaurants in the hotel. Two deserve to be highlighted: the cafe on the mezzanine floor and the Dynasty. The cafe offers a great buffet breakfast (it also offers lunch and dinner). Although it's expensive (about US$35), the selection and quality are both first-rate. Try it if you want to have a really big and comfortable breakfast. Of course, there are many other breakfast places around (Harbour Cafe in the convention center nearby; Pacific Coffee and DeliFrance are within three-minute walking distance, for example) for a fraction of the price. Dynasty is a Michelin one-star Chinese restaurant - first-rate food and service at a reasonable price!
All these features should have resulted in a perfect five-star rating, except for one thing, through no fault of the hotel - its location near the outfall of a sewage line. Depending on the harbor current and wind, the foul air can infiltrate into the lobby of the hotel. I have no doubt that the hotel has tried everything to mask the odor, but to no avail. It doesn't happen all the time. When it does, it is not a very inviting lobby!
