"The Hong Kong "Trade Off" Hotel"
As a long-time repeat guest, here are my observations. PROS: - Quiet location with stunning sea views of passing massive container ships - Not far from South Island for those visiting relatives or friends in Repulse or Stanley - Decent little gym and swimming pool (weekdays only) - Staff generally make an outsanding effort to make guests happy - Beds are firm albeit reasonably comfortable by Asia standards - Convenient access to the adjacent supermarket from the 4th floor - Outstanding if expensive Chinese restaurant (Nam Fong) on the 3rd floor - Very reliable, fast Internet service throughout the entire building - An entire "Pure" floor dedicated to clean fresh air - Solid conference facilities - Housekeeping is excellent overall - Since there are very few standard suites, SPG Platinum benefits are fantastic - A mobile electronic gadget in the room is useful for a number of purposes including remote VoIP calls. - The hotel frequently offers room prices that are a fraction of what you'd pay for a place of equal size and quality in Wanchai or Central CONS: - The hotel is fairly isolated and is a solid 10-minute taxi ride from Central - Umami, the sushi restaurant features prices that are obnoxious, even by HK standards - The food in Prompt is often good, but more often average and sometimes terrible - A recent visit revealed a lot of clutter and mess behind the bar at PSI along with tattered menus. The experience felt more like a friendly Holiday Inn than a Le Meridien. - Room service trays look like someone has beat them to hell with a jagged rock - Electrical outlets next to the beds only work when the ground effect lights are on, and even then really only work about 50% of the time. WTF'' - The in-room TVs are often unreliable and require assistance from maintenance to function properly - The hot tub adjacent to the pool isn't a hot tub at all -- same temperature as the pool - The hotel has a membership program for (mostly expat) HK locals that allows them to use the gym and swimming pool, as well as get discounts on food and beverages. The result is dozens of small children choking the swimming pool on weekends during the warmer months, often to the point that it becomes completely unusable to hotel guests. - Music in the lift is mostly horrific SUMMARY: This hotel is ultimately a trade off for visitors. If you are willing to spend time and extra taxi money getting into Central and back, it represents a fair (but no longer excellent) value. In my opinion the hotel will likely see a decline in occupancy numbers over time without some major capex in the coming 3-5 years. Until then, the place is nice enough for those willing to sacrifice and compromise for a nice enough room in an out-of-the way place.
"As good as ever!"
We were treated very well by all the staff and had a magical stay during which we could truly celebrate my wife's bithday. Our room had nice sea views and despite the drizzly, dank, cool weather of this Hong Kong winter weekend, we could experience the warmth of the very professioanl staff, particulatrly in the Bar and Prompt Restaurant spaces.
"Three days in HK"
Le Meridien Cyperport is 20 minutes from downtown HK and not on the metro link so you will need a taxi or the free hourly shuttle to get into town. We stayed on the 13th floor and our room was excellent. The happy hour runs from 5.30 - 8pm and the buffet breakfast from 6.30 - 10.30. The only interesting restaurant in the hotel is the Umami which is sushi, avoid the Chinese. The staff are generally very helpful and approachable. A big thank you to Jacky and Stefanie who help is out when we experienced a couple of issues.
"will never stay again"
When i checked into the hotel, the checkin itself took 20 mins. Customer service is below standards for an 'spg' hotel; and almost ridiculous to find out that the hotel doesn't have any cookies in the room, nor available for sale
"Not the best Le Meridien"
This is not the best SPG Le Meridien Hotel I stayed, but it's ok. From the down town it a bit way to go. but they have a bus transfer to the Metro Station. The service is soso, typical Chinese.... Breakfast is good and recommendable.
