So many things were wonderful here -- room size, the spectacular city view, location above shopping and Admiralty MTR and next to Hong Kong Park, extremely helpful bell staff, and amenities galore. Odd -- health club entry down one flight, overall health club not as nice as at Shangri-La next door. Most staff spoke only basic English and some organization seemed strange -- check-in at Reception, check-out at Cashier, Concierge desk number not listed in in-room directory. The luxurious room, with unbelievably prime bedding, fresh orchids and wall-to-wall views that enabled me to produce post-card perfect photos -- this is what I remember and what will make me want to come back. Make sure your rate includes breakfast, if possible -- the buffet is very comprehensive though you might as well skip made-to-order eggs in favor of impressive buffet of bacon, eggs benedict, sauteed mushrooms, etc.
