We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel ICON, especially with the expansive room (the room was about 3 to 4 times the size of a room at the Cosmo Hotel in Wan Chai), free M&Ms, and funky bathroom. The gym was also well-equipped and had a great view of the city (but a view of Hong Kong from any vantage point is great!). The scent as one walks in is wonderful, especially after a long warm day outdoors.
However, perhaps it is the understated service, which was good, but it also seemed as if the staff could not quite be bothered. Upon arrival, yes, they were pleasant and gracious, but still... there was something missing. Perhaps it was just a smile? It's ok Hotel ICON staff, a smile won't keep people away! In fact, it will make them feel even better to come back to the hotel.
The location is not as central, but it's still well served by buses to Wan Chai, the Airport Express Shuttle, and the Hotel ICON shuttle that travels to TST and Harbour View every 20 minutes. If you're not in the mood to wait, the East TST station isn't too far of a walk (not much farther than the usual walks to any station in HK).
Overall, a good experience!
