The City Garden is not exactly in the heart of things, nor is the surrounding neighborhood (although apparently safe) very uplifting, so if you want to be where the action is, either in Hong Kong or Kowloon, or if you are put off by urban grunge, you will have to pay more for "better" locations. But if, on the other hand, you are willing to invest some moderately substantial time and energy, using public transportation to get to where you want to go, and if you can tolerate workaday, big city sights and smells, then the City Garden is a good, reasonably-priced, clean, well-run place to stay.
Finding close-by places to eat, on the other hand, we found to be a problem. The in-house Garden Cafe seems expensive, but is convenient and provides a substantial variety of good-quality food.
We found the concierge service not very helpful, but individual staff members went out of their way to help us deal with the few coping-with-a strange-city problems we encountered.
Overall, our impression was that the City Garden is really meant to serve business people, especially those in town for events at the nearby Convention Center, but is nonetheless a good choice for leisure travelers who are not looking for the deluxe ambience, amenities, or prices of The Peninsula, the InterContinental, or the Mandarin Oriental.
