This hotel was fine--loved the views of the harbor and there's a promenade in front that is lovely-- but what I want to emphasize is that although it's a little out of the way, there is a shuttle every half hour between the hotel and a place very close to the Star Ferry to Central in Hong Kong, which is the locus of a lot of things. If we had known about it, we could have even taken the shuttle to the hotel when we arrived from Shenzhen by ferry with out spending a lot of time in a taxi with a confused driver.Generally though English is spoken much more than in mainland China, taxi drivers don't necessarily speak it so it is good to have your destination written down in Chinese characters and then in phonetice (pinyin) for you.
There is an outdoor pool on the top floor that I liked a lot--also the view is close to panoramic and without the greyish tinted glass of the hotel windows.
