We were looking for a less expensive hotel option in Hong Kong, and decided to try the T Hotel despite our curiosity about the reviews. Conclusion is that this is a great option; the T Hotel's luxury combined with its training mission will give you stories for years to come.
The rooms are first-rate (and extremely high-tech), the workout facility is excellent, and the breakfast buffet has plenty of options for all. The trainees are extremely eager to please and the on-site managers keep a close eye on any trainees who are interacting with the public, so you will usually have two or three trainees plus a manager involved in your service. This actually helped us since we grabbed the wrong bag on the way from the airport. The hotel staff kicked into action--located my bag at the bus office, arranged for me to get it, and took custody of the other bag. The hotel's mission might be better served if the managers allowed the trainees to spread their wings a little more, but that is just a minor suggestion. We recommend the T Hotel highly--you will have a great experience.
Echoing others' comments--if you are arriving at night on the airport bus, be alert as you enter the Pok Fu Lam area to get off at the correct stop. The T Hotel is in an office building with very little else around. People on the street pointed us in the right direction (to the VTC complex) but most people don't know anything about the hotel itself.
