"Amazing time in Ritz Carlton Hong Kong"
I just stayed in Ritz Carlton HK to celebrate my 9th wedding anniversary. Everything is perfect. Thank you for the anniversary set up (with balloons, wordings, swan towels..). I need to say Thank You to Christine/Guest service telephone center who assisted me to follow up all my enquiries, very thoughtful and nice. I also have a wonderful dinner in Tin Lung Hin (the Chinese Restaurant). Need to say Thank You to Francis who provided some suggestion for my order.
"Amazing Experience "
One of the best hotels I've stayed! The location in Kowloon allows you to have amazing views of Hong Kong Island. Simply amazing. Yet, it's a short cab ride to HK island. It's the highest hotel in the world! Even if you don't have perfect views from your room (not sure if that's possible), the pool and Bar on top floor will satisfy you. There are at least 2 restaurants on the lobby floors. Get the rate with breakfast. The spread is very very good. It has Chinese and western selections. Well prepared. There was also a separate traditional Japanese option. The staff everywhere, especially at breakfast, were very friendly and attentive. The breakfast views were also unbeatable. There is a mall on the bottom floors leading to the metro. It's the Elements mall. Very big and also very ritzy. I did not want to leave! Rooms were very clean and spacious.
Our visit to Hong Kong was added to our summer Asia trip for the sole purpose of checking out the Ritz HK, and we were not disappointed. From the moment we arrived at the lobby on the 9th fl. we were greeted by Club representative Jade (Taiwan), and whisk away to the club lounge on 116th floor for refreshments and check-in. We booked two Club Victoria harbor rooms for two adults and our two children (teens) with AMEX Fine Resort & Hotels, and both rooms were upgraded to deluxe Victoria Harbor suites. Both were corners rooms, adjacent to each other, which provided the most astounding views of Hong Kong skyline and Victoria Harbor. The views were better than the views from the Club lounge, IMO. The weather during the four days we stayed at Ritz HK was not the greatest, but there was no complain because we were completely pampered by the staff. Julia, Maggie, and Fenna (Germany), from the Club lounge were so professional and friendly, they made our stay absolutely memorable. We ordered room service, and the quality of the food (pasta, lobster bisque, and cheese burger) were exceeding good for late night. We also thoroughly enjoyed the service and conversation with Catalina Castillo (Columbia/Spain) of the Bar & Lounge during breakfast everyday, sharing our experiences of Ritz-Carlton Cancun and Barcelona. We shared photos of our Ritz-Carlton HK experience with friends and family via social media, and now they all wanted to visit. In the past year we've stayed at Ritz-Carlton Los Angeles (we are staying there again next week), and Ritz-Carlton Miami Beach. We have stayed in many Ritz-Carlton properties throughout the world, and the Ritz-Carlton HK is our favorite.
"The Lounge Bar HK"
Had high tea at The Lounge Bar HK. Ritz Carlton: it occupies the top 18 floors or so of the 10th highest building in the world. The views from the Lounge Bar: UNBELIEVABLE!! Do not miss this when you to Hong Kong. Splurge a bit and enjoy the excellent decor and service. Our server was Jazz who was very helpful and gave us excellent service. The tea set was quite nice and very filling.
For those of you who like to stay on Kowloon side, that is the best choice. Although price is a little high, the hotel and facilities are really worth what you are paying. Room quality is amazing, view is outstanding, service is top quality. Very convenient also for a short stay as the hotel is located in Elements which is a huge shopping mall with all luxury brands you can think about. Swimming pool on the roof top features and amazing view, and hotel host a wonderful Cantonese restaurant (probably the best high end Cantonese restaurant in HK) Tin Lung Heen. However, even you are an in house guest, it is not always easy to get a table there if you do not book early enough.
