So here I am finally getting around to writing about my last stop on my first round the world trip.
The time has flown by so fast since i left in June.

15 hours and 3 minutes is a long, long time in the air, but I appreciated the direct flight from Toronto to Hong Kong. Slept a lot and watched three movies. Left Toronto Saturday morning and arrived in Hong Kong at 2:30 Sunday afternoon. The International Dateline does crazy things to time.

This morning we got up on a mission to find better room and board. The Intercontinental Grandstanford just isn't a great hotel that warrants the price. It's a couple of blocks away from the Intercontinental Hong Kong which I hear is very nice, but the prices were not reasonable there. It's said that the best views of the city skyline and the …
We slept in this morning and just enjoyed the view from our room. We leave for Hong Kong today and we've got a long row to hoe (so to speak). I woke up this morning and I decided that I must have the hand painted tea set that I discovered last night. The colors were so perfect and I just know I'll never find anything like it again. So, that is top …
Today is Chinese New Year and this is the greeting Sam learned from the front of the newspaper the other day. We arrived to an abundance of vases filled with chrysanthemums and dahlias in all colours in addition to decorated cumquat trees everywhere. The fruit of prosperity and good health and luck! Hong Kong is a really interesting place to visit …

Historical Traveler Reviews InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong
I stayed at the IC Grand Stanford for four nights during February of 2006. I have traveled quite a bit internationally and would rate this a very strong 4 Star hotel. It is definitely not in the class of a Peninsula or Four Seasons, but considering its price and level of service I found it of good value. I've stayed at Five Star properties on HK Island and found them to be comparable, if not superior at the IC Grand Stanford.
We arrived at the IC Grand Stanford on Christmas Day morning for one night, departing the following early evening.
Nicely decorated room
Our first time in Hong Kong, arriving on Christmas day for 3 nights stayed. The hotel is centrally located off Nathan Road. The staff were very nice and friendly. The client based is quite mixed which is normally a good sign for us. We were upgraded to harbour view room, which was fatanstic. Great view of the harbour. The bed were very comfortable to sleep in. The amenities were as expected from a hotel of the same rating. The room were kept very clean and fresh. The hotel is easily access to the ferry to Hong Kong. I can find no fault with the hotel.
Lovely comfy king size bed, crisp linen, feather duvet and pillows. Upgraded to harbour view room at no charge. Service instant and attentive. Would stay again. Slightly further out than some hotels but taxi ride very cheap.
My wife and I, plus two sons, had two rooms at the IGS in early August 2005 and were very impressed with the hotel. We booked standard rooms, but because of the pool being closed and the renovation work to the front negotiated upgrades to rooms with a side harbour view on the fifth floor, which were excellent.
Superb views of the harbour and HK Island. Insist on a Harbour View Room, it's worth paying extra.
Nice hotel, undergoing renovations
Great hotel, beautiful rooms, immaculately clean, very comfortable beds, fantastic breakfast buffet, good harbour views, good location.
Undergoing renovations, pool closed in July, restaurants very expensive, mini bar outrageous $5 for can of coke.
(Go out of the lobby turn left, 150 yards on the left is a 7 Eleven. Stocks everything that you have in the mini bar for 10% of the cost.)
Great location overlooking the harbour but a bit further up then the main intercontinental.
We had an upgraded room to a queens side bed, it was lovely kept immaculate and with the most comfortable bed. Hotel staff where fantastic, the concierge booked lots of restaurants for us and everyone was really helpful.
We didnt eat in the hotel as food was quite expensive, but there was so much around to see and do.
I was a very satified guest at this hotel. For a reasonable price, I got a nice view of the harbor. My sister got a view of a wall outside her window but she complaint and she was upgraded to a harbor view as well. The hotel is under complete renovation but it didn't brother me at all. They provided free transportation to and from the subways and main roads. However, there websites does say free transportation to and from the airport but we ended up paying $120 HK per person. The pool was closed until May so I didn't get a chance to see it. And I was too busy sightseeing and shopping to visit the gym. The service was great as well. Two nights the maids left fruits and chocolates in my room. The rooms was very nice. The bed was very comfortable with new comforters. The room size was not small at all like other HK hotels. The two full beds can be easily move together to make a king size bed. Overall this hotel did a good job to make our vacation very comfortable.
Excellent hotel, extremely good value for money if booked a little in advance. Rooms spacious and comfortable, clean. Staff very helpful, dvd player in my standard basic room, rooftop pool, good food, etc, etc..
