NileGuide Expert Says:
Expect Plateau day spa, a welcoming herbal bath, pre-dinner cocktails and breakfast the next morning. Guests also receive complimentary access to the outdoor 50-meter heated swimming pool and fitness studios.
NileGuide Expert tip:
The hotel is connected to the Hong Kong trade and convention center so you can get to your tradeshows. Honestly though, there is enough to keep you occupied so we recommend to just enjoy the facilities unless the pull to hit Lockhart road overwhelms you.
Walking into the lobby of this hotel is like walking into the Bavarian castle of a modern-day King Ludwig, a lobby so palatial that the word "understatement" has certainly never been uttered within its walls. Decorated to resemble the salon of a 1930s Art Deco luxury ocean liner, it literally flaunts space, with huge black granite columns, massive flower arrangements, palm trees, bubbling fountains, and statuettes. It's not the kind of place you want to be seen on a bad hair day.
Located on the waterfront adjacent to the Convention Centre and a 5-minute walk from the Wan Chai Star Ferry pier that delivers passengers to Tsim Sha Tsui, it offers smart-looking, contemporary rooms, some 75% with a full harbor view (the rest have a view of Hong Kong's largest outdoor hotel pool and garden, with partial glimpses of the harbor). Pluses are the slide-out clothes rack in the closet and coffee-table books, which impart a homey atmosphere.
For extra pampering, travelers can choose to stay at Plateau, a residential spa with 14 guest rooms (and nine treatment rooms), where guests can enjoy a massage, manicure, and a soak in an infinity bathtub without leaving the privacy of their room (doubles here start at HK$7,000/US$909/£454, including breakfast). They should, however, venture at least as far as the spa's sauna, which boasts a view of the harbor. The must try is the poolside grill's bubbly brunch for around $400 offering sumptuous buffet spreads and grilled specialties year-round (weather permitting).
Facilities: 5 restaurants, including Grissini and One Harbour Road; lounge; champagne bar; club w/live music; 50m outdoor heated pool (shared w/adjacent Renaissance Harbour View Hotel and open year-round); children's splash pool and playground; golf-driving range; 2 outdoor lit tennis courts; 2 squash courts; health club; spa; jogging track; concierge; business center; salon; 24-hr. room service; babysitting; free shuttle to Central, Causeway Bay, and Admiralty
