We spent one day at hotel Icon, and were pampered from the minute we walked into the lobby. Everyone in the hotel was polite and helpful, and really went out of their way to make us feel at home. The hotel, both the lobby and the room, are immaculate, bright, and elegant.
Our room (without any upgrade) was large: spacious by American standard and GIANT for Hong Kong. There was room for two comfortable, twin sized bed, a large working desk, a sofa chair and more space for our luggage! We had a view of the harbor, which was spectacular at night with all the lights. The shower was a little funky, as there was only a shower curtain but no threshold between the shower and the rest of the bathroom. But as long as we sprayed against the wall, we were able to shower without getting any water out.
The hotel is located very close to the Hung Hum train station, and the KCR east rail. To get to Tsim Sha Tsui, the concierge recommended the hotel shuttle, which runs to the Harbor City near the ferry terminal. It is also possible to walk to the East Tsim Sha Tsui station, where you can then take the Tsuen Wan Line on MTR -- very convenient! To get to the airport on public transit, take the airport express train to Kowloon, where a free shuttle (K3) will deliver you to the hotel.
All in all, we enjoyed our stay. The hotel offers everything we needed, without much frills. The free minibar access is a nice touch, although a buffet breakfast would have been even better.
