Located right next to a Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station exit, so very convenient for getting around. It also means that you can do the 10-minute walk to the shops in Tsim Sha Tsui without getting wet (or hot). I also think this location has much more local character than some of the swish hotels on Hong Kong island itself. In addition to the older character of Tsim Sha Tsui, Mong Kok etc, the locality also has a variety of more modern bars, steak restaurants etc.
As for the hotel itself, it rates as one of the better Shangri-Las I have stayed in, with the expected high-level of service. The room was well-appointed, and the bathroom fine, although it did offer a large shower, rather than a bath. Breakfast was good, with a variety of different cuisines on offer. The Club lounge was also very pleasant, offering wide views across the harbour - it does get busy though, so if you want a nice table, get there 30 mins before the cocktail hour starts. I've stayed in a number of high-end hotels in Hong Kong, and this is amongst the best. Also, if your preference is bargain hunting for cheap electronics and cosmetics, then you will not find a better Hong Kong location.
