Excellent hotel, especially for Hong Kong, where most hotels are small and dingy. This is a 3.5-star hotel that stays like a 5-star. Service is excellent. The room is fantastic for Hong Kong. It is a solid size with very high ceilings. Views can be stunning if you are lucky. Everything is clean and comfortable. The concierge was extremely helpful. The free shuttle is a lifesaver. The price was more than fair.
My stay was allllmost perfect. The tub water-plug got stuck multiple times, which required me calling housekeeping in the middle of the night. But they were quick and helpful.
My biggest gripe with the hotel was still the "Shopper's Privilege Card" they offered guests. You have to sign up at the front desk, where they give you a card that claims to provide discounts at certain malls and shopping spots owned by the Sino Group, which also owns Island Pacific. I spent a ton of time looking for these malls, and none of them had a clue about this card. I got the feeling that the card was just a ploy to send you to their malls and spend money, not really a discount card. It's a shame because my stay was perfect up to that point.
Nonetheless, a solid stay over all. Recommended!
