Sheraton Hong Kong Hotel Review

Sheraton Hong Kong via starwoodhotels.com

If you haven’t checked out my post about our time in Hong Kong – Check it out! Even though we only spent about 48 hours in Hong Kong, that is plenty of time to see a lot of the city thanks to the efficient metro system and walkability of the city. Because we were out exploring for most of our time in the city I can’t give a full review of all of the Sheraton Hong Kong and its amenities, but rather my impression of the room, service, and dining we had.

When booking the hotel, I narrowed it down to The Sheraton Hong Kong, which had great value a good location (even though I thought it was on Hong Kong Island in Central), the Conrad Hong Kong in central because it seemed to be in the middle of everything, and the Shangri-La Hong Kong because of its location and the benefits offered through my American Express Platinum for Business card. I ended up going with value and it did not disappoint. We ended up getting a tower suite for less than a standard king size room at the other two hotels I was considering!

Sheraton Hong Kong Review: Check-In

We arrived at the hotel early, 4 hours before early check-in usually begins. The staff at the check-in desk kindly welcomed us and let us know the guest staying in our room had just checked out and they had already sent housekeeping up to get the room ready for us. They pointed us in the direction of the breakfast buffet and said we could check back in 1-2 hours. We gave the concierge our remaining luggage had breakfast and explored the neighborhood around our hotel.

Something to look out for if you ever visit Hong Kong – on almost every corner someone will be trying to sell you copy bag, copy watch, or custom suit. Mallory and I got pulled into a guy’s suit shop and I left with a suit and 3 shirts all custom fit, but you have to remember to negotiate and no is a valid answer. The guy who I bought the suit from was trying to sell me more from the moment I walked in to pick my stuff up till I said: “you’re quite the salesman, but no.”

Sheraton Hotel Hong Kong Review: First impressions

I’m pretty sure the first words I said when I walked into our room was “wow” or “Holy Shit”. The suite had to be as big if not bigger than my last apartment before Mal and I bought our house. There was a front foyer that led to the living room that had a 50-inch TV. To the left when you walk in the door was a small hall leading to the walk-in closet and office with another 50-inch TV. The bedroom was off of the living room and had yet another 50-inch TV. The bathroom was located in between the office and bedroom and had a large bath and shower area and a separate room with a toilet, bidet, and another sink. The room offered views of the Hong Kong island skyline where there is a light show every night at 8 PM.

Sheraton Hong Kong Review: Dining

Our sample of the Sheraton Hong Kong’s dining options is limited to the breakfast buffet. The hotel has 5 or 6 dinner options, but because our stay was short we ventured out for dinner. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I’ve ever seen. Not sure if it was a holdover from the British influence, but you could get eggs anyway, really good bacon and sausage, yogurt, cereal, you name it. I left the buffet overstuffed both days we ate it.

Sheraton Hotel Hong Kong Review: Service

As I mentioned at check-in the service was impeccable. When we returned from exploring the first day we found they had brought us up a bottle of wine and some fruit. The staff at the check-in/out desk and concierge were very helpful and efficient (seems to be a theme in Hong Kong). They made sure that even though our stay was short, it was very enjoyable! We booked a car to the airport through the hotel and it too did not disappoint: it was less expensive than what I could find online and was booked through the hotel, so I think I earned extra credit card points on the purchase!

Complimentary Wine!

In conclusion, I loved our time in Hong Kong and the Sheraton Hong Kong was a great value in a great location (just a block from the iconic Peninsula Hotel). I would recommend the Sheraton Hong Kong especially if you are going to stay for longer than a couple of days, that way you can try the restaurants and let me know how they are! We took a lot of photos during our trip to Hong Kong, so check out the full gallery!

  3. […] Other than the Hong Kong skyline, there are very few images that are quintessential Hong Kong. The red sail Chinese junk boat, however, is one of those images. Growing up a sailor, and my love of the water made the Aqualuna Harbor cruise a no brainer. I had a couple hours to kill the afternoon I was set to leave Hong Kong, so I bought my ticket online, hopped on the MRT over the the Tsim Sha Tsui station (where we stayed last time). […]

  4. Appreciating the persistence you put into your blog and detailed information you provide.
