Last month, I stayed at the Shangri-La’s Kowloon location in Hong Kong and I couldn’t sing its praises enough. From he decor and service to their amazing concierge, this hotel was truly five stars.
Hong Kong is broken up not two major areas: Central, which is the business district and Kowloon, which has more of a neighborhood feel but is just a few subway stops from Central. We decided to stay in Kowloon after discussing it with friends who live over in Hong Kong and having stayed there it was the right move.
The Shangri-La was pure luxury from before we even arrived. I had been in touch with their concierges about dinner reservations, logistics and other questions, which they gladly answered and were amazing enough to get us hard-to-get reservations. I also loved that the hotel was across the street from a major subway stop, making it easy to navigate Hong Kong efficiently. The lobby is grand, with beautiful crystal chandeliers and a beautiful bar and other areas to congregate.
Our room was spacious and luxe with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the harbor. They had American outlet adaptors for us and a plush marble bathroom with great features. The bed had super soft sheet sand pillows and was great to come home to after a long day of sightseeing. They also provide guests with smart phones that have free international calling and wifi and make navigating the city a breeze.
This was a great five-star experience that is centrally located to make it a perfect spot to see the rest of the city from.
