The Kowloon Shangri-La, on the Tsim Sha Tsui East waterfront near train service to the New Territories and China and a 5-minute walk to Tsim Sha Tsui (there's also free shuttle service every 45 min. to the Star Ferry), is a popular choice for business travelers, the majority of whom are American. The well-trained staff (half have worked at the hotel more than 10 years) provides sterling service, which is probably one reason why repeat guests make up more than 55% of hotel occupancy; there's even a technology butler on hand 24 hours to iron out laptop snafus. The two-story lobby is one of the most spacious in Hong Kong, with an expansive white Carrara marble floor, massive Viennese crystal chandeliers, a fountain, and Chinese landscape murals. Rooms, offering either harbor views or rather mundane "garden views" (a popular euphemism for windows that face inland), are spacious (starting at 42 sq. m/452 sq. ft.), and luxuriously appointed, with ceiling-to-floor bay windows. If you the pay rack rates below, additional benefits include free airport transfer, free laundry service and dry cleaning, free buffet breakfast, free local telephone calls and Internet access, and a late 6pm checkout. Otherwise, lower rates without frills are usually available, beginning at HK$2,850 (US$370/£185) for a double.
Facilities: 4 restaurants, including Shang Palace for Cantonese; tapas bar; lounge; small indoor pool; exercise room (24 hr.); Jacuzzi; sauna; concierge; business center (24 hr.); 24-hr. room service; babysitting; executive-level rooms; house doctor; free shuttle service to Tsim Sha Tsui.
