We chose this great hotel due to other reviews we'd read and also because of the location and price. It was touted as having some of the (if not the) biggest hotel rooms in HK. The service was amazing on every level and our room ($250-$300?) Was modern, had every amenity we could imagine, was huge and had an amazing view. Imagine our surprise when we found out it's a training hotel owned by Hong Kong Polytechnic (university) and the employees and staff are supposedly students learning to work in the restaurant/hotel/service industry. Note: the hotel restaurants are NOT CHEAP and meals at two of them cost about what the nightly rate of a room is. They are however some of the best and top rated restaurants in HK which is saying a lot. The $75/person dinner buffet sounds steep but it has the most incredible food...foie gras, king crab legs, you name it. It was our favorite meal for the money. Also, the workout facility has an amazing view and is great.
Also, the location of the hotel is incredible. We'll definitely stay here again.
