Hong Kong Hotel Suggestions
My wife and I will be having a 3-day stopover in Hong Kong this summer. Any suggestions on the best hotel options there? We’ll probably be paying cash since the points redemption value in HK don’t seem that great, but do have hyatt and starwood/marriot points. We don’t have any particular brand loyalty and are looking for the nicest hotel with the best location. Thanks!
Four Seasons executive club room, not the absolute best for views but very convenient location for MTR, plus the service is exceptional. My go to for HK
What are you looking to do in HK? The Intercontinental is right on the harbor and has fantastic views but getting to some of the busier areas/sights is a bit difficult. I liked the Hyatt Regency TST – it’s across the street from an MTR entrance and while a nice hotel, it’s not necessarily the best. The W Hong Kong and the Ritz Carlton are really nice but further away from the central areas.
It’s hard to beat the views at the Intercontinental Hong Kong. However, the hotel is a little dated and in need of a renovation (starting in 2017).My personal favorite is the Four Seasons Hong Kong. Great views of the harbour, close to Hong Kong MTR, and is inside the International Finance Center complex.
I lived in HK during the transition (many years ago) but travel back a lot. I was so happy to be on the Island and not the Kowloon side. On HK Island, there are so many great parks (The Peak / The Bowen Road) – super for running or hiking, etc. Mid Levels is the nice residential area and Central is the restaurant / bar main area. You are staying for many days so you (may) need alot of activities. My favorite hotel is EAST. Its a Swire product…. check out TabletHotels —- if you are not loyal to hotel brands and want cool /creative offers.
Also! Keep in mind! HK in the SUMMER is brutal with humidity. I live in Miami and HK is unbearable even to us! (I love humidity but not when I want to walk or run around all day.)
[USER=1690]@Rob in Miami[/USER] OMG YES. I went back every few years (since I have family there and up in Guangzhou) as a kid and since I’d only be off in the summer, that’s when my family went. The humidity is NUTS.
Sorry to keep on with this (I lived there and feel somewhat on this question)….. for me? It’s anything close to Swire (who owns Cathay Pacific) property called Pacific Place. EAST is located there, JW Marriott, Shangrala (sp?). But, there are so many other amazing hotels nearby…. Mandarin Oriental (very James Bond)…. The MTR is super efficient and easy to use due to the old British influence….. its next to the ferry to the Kowloon side, close to many things…. its really the heart of HK.
