For 300 USD a nite I would like to not have to crawl under the bedside tables to get at an electrical outlet to plug my phone in, especially when one is upgraded to a suite!
Also, I sure would like to have my room stay cool enough to be able to use the bedding vs sleeping on top of it during the night...
If it wasn't for these things, I may have looked past the other things hat didn't seem very upscale to me during my two nites here last week.
To start, I arrived at around 8pm and my room was not ready, so they parked me in the executive lounge and an hour later after having to ask, my room was finally ready.
I was upgraded via hhonors to a two room suite, with a full view of the Shangri La hotel and a nice partial view of the harbor from the living room, which had a small bathroom and two sofas, work desk that had plenty of outlets, some welcome tea and a bunch of chocolates in a fancy little cabinet. It also had a large flat screen tv and sound system, which was nice.
Moving toward the bedroom, the main bath was large, with tv, shower, tub, and separate toilet room. Large double sink, but was by myself, so no big deal.
In the bedroom. It had a nice large window with a view of the Hong Kong hillside and up toward Victoria peak. TV was off to the side and awkward to watch from the bed, which was on the hard side, but ok. And I already mentioned that there were not any bedside outlets open without crawling and moving stuff... All they'd need to do is add a plug strip like the Hampton Inns do on their bed stands...for a business hotel, they do lack in his department for sure but was happy with internet speed and even linked up online to watch some NFL games ok too.
I never went back to the exec lounge during my stay, but did use the restaurant for breakfast the first day which was overrun by some rude tourists that were not westerners... Food was nothing special and actually really wasn't that good tasting to me and I stuck to the basics for breakfast, so I didn't go back the next day.
Location is just ok, you need to navigate a bit thru the mall and skyways to get yo the MTR Admirality stop, which wasn't bad and that's where I found the nearest 7/11 too. It was my first stay on the island side, and I am not sure I liked it, but at least I got my hhonor points!
Anyway, if the rate is ok, I'd stay again to get my points. I probably need to do a little more research on what's around there too, and just need to get a better feel for that areas attractions and features as I do have now with Kowloon side...
