Hotel Exterior & Entrance
Reception & Lobby
We arrived at the hotel at 3:40pm and was helped by a friendly associate in the front desk. He welcomed me as a Diamond member and informed that we got an upgrade to a Twin Harbour View Suite 👍👍 We were also given the usual information about breakfast hours, etc. and a letter explaining all the Executive Benefits.
I've read some reviews of Conrad Hong Kong and learned that most Gold and Diamond members are normally escorted to the Executive Lounge to do the check-in process but honestly, it did not really matter since the upgrade we got was so generous 😉
Twin Harbour View Suite, 5802
As is the norm with suites, our suite has a separate living room and bedroom. Some suites have a guest bathroom and a master bathroom while others have only a master bathroom. In our case, we had the former 👍 The guest bathroom is located immediately to your right as you enter the room.
Welcome Amenity & Turn Down Service
Two bottles of water and Conrad bears were also delivered moments after.
View at Night
We were also able to watch the Light and Music show at 7:45pm from the ICC Building which is the highest building in Hong Kong and is where the Ritz Carlton Hotel is located. Unfortunately, we missed the Symphony of Lights show at 8pm.
Executive Lounge, 59th Floor (6:30-23:00)
Afternoon Tea (15:00-17:00)
As soon as we were seated, we were greeted by one of the waiters and asked if we wanted to drink something. That's the Conrad difference 😉
Evening Cocktail (17:00-19:00)
Buffet Breakfast, Garden Café (6:30-11:00)
As soon as we were seated, one of the waiters came to ask if we wanted to have some coffee and fresh orange juice. The restaurant is on the small side but with high ceilings, it didn't feel that small.
Exploring the Area
I was still a little sick and tired (or jetlagged) at the same time so Mike and I just took a stroll along Queen's Road up to the Statue Square, and then back again to the hotel. We have been to Hong Kong a few times in the past so it was okay to stay in the neighborhood 😉
Everybody who has been to Hong Kong (or has researched about it) knows how expensive hotel rooms are here. So when Mike and I heard that we were upgraded to one of their harbour view suites (I have diamond status), we were just so ecstatic 😍 But even without the room upgrade, I really believe that Conrad Hong Kong is one of the best hotels in Hong Kong based on our experience. I loved the fact that the room decoration has a local touch, with the design of the consoles (and the drawers were small items were kept) showcasing Chinese art. The bed was very comfortable so both Mike and I slept really well. It is not very often you see a step-trainer equipment inside a hotel room's bathroom so kudos to Conrad Hong Kong for such offering. Interestingly, the size of the Executive Lounge and the breakfast restaurant were on the small side, although we did not encounter any problem during our stay. Both the food offering from the lounge during the evening cocktail and breakfast at the Garden Cafe were extensive and of high quality. Also, it was nice seeing Yakult drinks for breakfast 😉 The hotel's location is also ideal as it is close to some tourist attractions like the Golden Bauhinia Square, Victoria Peak and the Hong Kong Observation Wheel. Lastly, every staff we encountered from the reception, Executive Lounge and the breakfast restaurant were all friendly and did their best to make our stay a memorable one. It might be awhile before we are back to Hong Kong again but we will definitely never forget the amazing experience we had during our stay at the Conrad Hong Kong, not to mention our upgrade to a suite worth 800 USD 😍
