I think if you want to do HK right this is your place. It fits such a trendy and fast paced city. Reception is on the 35th floor. Every agent is on a Macbook and just outside there is a pool and an awesome panoramic view of the city. The gym even has a wing chun dummy. I had a room with a kingsized bed and large flat screen television. The minibar is complimentary and refilled daily with beer, water and soft drinks. Each room has an iPad with wifi for your internet use and ordering of food and hotel services. The bathroom has everything you need from the basic vanity kit and toothbrush to shaving kit and loofa. The shower has both normal and rain heads. I may be easily wowed but you can move the mirror to watch television from the bathroom through a large window. If you need privacy that same window goes from transparent to opaque with the hit of a switch. Pretty cool. Robes and slippers are also provided.
If you want to save money you can take the A22 bus from the Airport to Ngao Tau Kok which is also the train station you'll use. I believe they have a shuttle that will pick you up from the Kowloon station after you take the Airport express train. They dropped me off after my stay so I imagine they'll pick you up also. I recommend the Hung To Cafe around the corner. They fed me well when I wandered back at around 2am. For breakfast take a right out of the hotel and make two more rights. You will find a bakery with good dim sum.
You didn't ask but if you need a quick souvenir idea and want something of quality check out Carpenter Tan's. They make wooden grooming products for men and women. Cheers!!
