My boss was looking for a new hotel to stay in HK when we travel on business. I kept seeing The Icon Hotel advertised on all the travel sites so I decided to take the plunge! One word...WOW! Many foreign business travelers staying here now. It's clean with impeccable service and for that little "extra" we chose the CLUB FLOOR room. (We hold many meetings at the CLUB Lounge as it is quite and offers the best view of the harbour in the building) I've now stayed here 3 times and really don't see the value in purchasing the Harbour View over the City View as all the rooms had fascinating views of the city. The location is not near Kowloon central (Canton Rd.) but on a nice day it's a 20 min walk and you can see all the shops and small markets on the way. There is always a taxi just steps outside of the door so no worries there. The restaurants in the hotel are STELLAR! My favorite is THE MARKET. Open for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. I strongly recommend you make a reservation as soon as you check-in. The restaurants fill up fast with the local business workers for Lunch and Dinner. Free WIFI throughout the property and in your room. Also free mini bar and little snacks. Nice touch. My only "pet peeve" is how horribly SLOW the elevators are. Other than that this one is a MUST TRY.
