I have seen quite a few Hilton hotels, but this is the most impressive building I have ever seen. The lobby is superlative, with a "floating piano", the rooms are impressive, the pool is gigantic, everything exudes luxury and grandiose taste. Although a bit far from Shenzhen city center, taxi are comfortable, cheap and fast through the highway. I would recommend it as well for a short weekend out of Hong Kong, as it is right next to the ferry stop.
Being Diamond, I was upgraded to a suite and access to the lounge, but even if you have to pay for that privilege I can definitively recommend it. I had my share of "average" lounges at Hilton, but this one is top of the league by the space, luxury, food and superb service.
It is close to a new entertainment center with franchises coffees and restaurants, including an old docked cruise ship which serves as a German sausage restaurant: food and service and toilets are horrible however, this is a real tourist trap. So I recommend that you eat at the Hilton instead (where the breakfast was excellent, and the high tea also look great).
As for the service, it is within the best that Hilton can offer.
My only concern is that the bed was sinking (I experienced the same at the Hilton in Guanzhou), and the lounge receptionist told me that next time I should advise them in advance of my visit, and they will change to a hard mattress. I did not know that this was possible, and I will surely do it.
Well, I can't wait to be back.
