Expert review of Conrad Hotel Hong Kong
A quartet of hotels face off atop Pacific Place: the Conrad is the Hong Kong outpost of the Hilton empire, after the hotel in Central that bore its name got shoved aside by a – surprise – office block. Smart, financially puissant, high-toned – this is very much a Hong Kong hotel.
Drill down deep enough and you get to the MTR platforms. In between there are numerous floors of shopping and entertainment (by Hong Kong standards, food is included in the latter category). The whole site was actually once a British Army barracks (!). The park to the west is also well worth a wander.
Whether you’ve got the key for the King Presidential Suite or simply a Superior Room, there are few real surprises here. Solid comfort, ditto luxury, delivered with the panache that is the hallmark of the Conrad.
The lobby and surrounds extend around the central tower block that contains the rooms.
Legend has it that when the chef at Golden Leaf was told he’d picked up a Michelin star, he said: “Oh good. What’s Michelin?” And yes, the proof’s in the pudding at this and all the Conrad’s restaurants.
The 24-hour health club got a makeover recently; the outdoor pool is a boon in summer.
Turning up here for a business appointment, I realised I was in totally the wrong place. A junior member of staff sorted me out a) in seconds flat and b) without making me feel a complete fool. That’s what service is all about.
Primarily a business clientele, including a fair number of US guests who are attracted by a familiar name.
As always, paying the extra for a harbour view is worth every cent.
