We stayed here over the New Year for approximately one week. The service from reception and concierge was excellent throughout the stay.
The hotel has a pleasant western style lobby bar/restaurant, a buffet on the 1st floor and a fine dining restaurant with a spectacular view of Hong Kong across the harbour. Note that the hotel is located in the more "down to earth" Kowloon area.
the hotel has a new feel about it (I think it is about 1 year old). The wellness centre has an outdoor pool with a spectacular view. One negative point is that the Sauna is located in the men'S change rooms and the Steam Bath in the women's change room. It means women cannot use the Sauna and men cannot use the Steam Bath which I found rather strange. The wellness does have a hidden Jacuzzi in the actual pay-spa area (I found out when we checked out so it was too late). The fitness centre is very well equipped with modern machines.
The curtains in the room were not black-out curtains and so unfortunately the rooms were too well lit in the early mornings.
I would recommend this hotel to prospective travellers. I also personally prefer Kowloon to Hong Kong centre.
