4 star hotel

The airport hotel that’s not an airport hotel; it’s that simple.

I once slept through my alarm and woke up late for a crucial early morning flight; 10 minutes later I was at check-in. That’s the beauty of the Regal Airport, with a lobby at the same level as Arrivals, a couple of hundred metres’ indoor trolley push from the terminal.

Location

The Airport Express train links the airport, and hence the Regal, with Central in about 25 minutes; and it runs to the AsiaWorld-Expo exhibition centre in little more time than it takes to sit down and stand up after the carriage doors close.

 

Bedrooms

Forget dingy, dowdy passageways with shoeboxes to left and right – the Regal fairly shouts colour, and even the zig-zag corridors glisten. Spa and club floor rooms command the upper end of the rate card, but justifiably so. Even further down the scale, you can count on WiFi and multi satellite channels. And all good plane-spotters know that not a few rooms overlook the apron and runway.

 

Public areas

A good use of water features, differing floor levels and plenty of space combine to make the lobby less of a terminus.

 

Eating and drinking

Given its huge ballroom and high room count, the Regal is a popular venue for large events, including weddings, all of which keep the catering staff on their toes. The China Coast Bar & Grill typifies how the hotel keeps well above the average standard airport fare.

 

Leisure facilities

Gym, indoor and outdoor pools, and a Thai-style spa.

 

Service

Staff are not bad, considering the number of faces they have to contend with 365 days a year, but this is one area where the Regal could improve. Grouchy doormen, take note.

 

Who stays there

Apart from the obvious candidates (eg airline crew), a fair few guests use the Regal as a base, commuting in and out of town on the Airport Express.
