This is a very nice hotel. Pleasant lobby, nice facilities and a really wonderful breakfast arcade (from miso soup to spanish omelettes.
I stayed there two nights on the way to Guangzhou. I arrived at the Hong Kong airport at 5 a.m. and took a taxi to the hotel. The room (obviously) was not ready, so they let me go up to the sauna and shower and change clothes before I headed out to sight see. After a 15 hour flight from LAX, this was really appreciated.
My room was a corner room on the ninth (SPG) floor. The view was okay, but if you want a view of the harbour, ask for one and ask for a higher floor. I was traveling on points, but colleagues who were SPG members and were paying got free breakfasts and a 100 Hong Kong dollar credit toward dry cleaning.
The room was very modern and stylish and nicely appointed. The location is very nice--near the Star Ferry terminal and the Kowloon waterfront and near the bustling nightlife of Tsim Sha Tsui, Be sure to visit the nearby Kowloon park in the morning to watch the people practicing Tai Chi and especially if you are a birdwatcher. You are also only one MTR stop from the Temple Street Night Market.
Two issues. They have a separate desk for SPG members but no separate line, which makes it difficult to use. You really seem like you are jumping line if you go to it and the others in line just glare at you.
The other was the concierge, who didn't seem too informed. After being turned away from both the Pennisula Hotel restaurant and the Sheraton's rooftop restaurant because my female colleague was wearing sandals, we asked for alternatives. They really couldn't suggest anywhere we could go given my friend's "Suzy Wong Shoes" except the Ruth Chris steakhouse, which required (according to them) a taxi ride. So we went out on foot and went into the Shangra La Hotel and asked where we could get a meal. They were very helpful.
Suggestion--Go to the rooftop hotel bar for a drink or afternoon tea. The view is fantastic!
I would definitely stay there again!
P.S. The entrances to the hotel are hard to find. There is an adjacent shopping arcade (The Elegance at the Sheraton) which is very mazelike and it is ver difficult to find your way to the hotel lobby from that shopping mall. (It is done via an elevator). The car entrance is off of Stanley Road(I think) and the easiest pedestrian entrance is off of Nathan Road.
