Island Shangri-La Hotel
Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
What to do today? It is still raining. We had breakfast in our room. The porridge even though it was instant was very nice. Packed our backpacks and umbrellas and off we went. First task was to drop off my laundry. Cost $30 Hong Kong. Less than $5 and it would be ready by 2 pm.
We walked all the way to the centre of Hong Kong. Found the world' …
Great city with such a vibe. Hotel was fab - a very warm welcome, staff it professional and friendly. Went to Summer Palace (Michelin rated restaurant), shopped at Hollywood Road, Sevva bar at Charter Road Princess House building (breathtaking views from an open terrace on a top floor, nice cocktails and selection of deserts is good too), secret …

Headed back to Hong Kong for the rest of the week before going back to New York again. Not an exciting week....just hitting the office and hopefully a couple nice dinners. The weather is really ****** due to the storms over mainland China and I haven't seen the sun in days. See you when I get back to NY! Not sure of my next move but will update with any news.
Arrived in Hong Kong and checked back into the Island Shangri-La on Hong Kong Island (if I get to come back, I think I will stay in Kowloon across Victoria Harbour next time just to shake things up). Upon arriving at the hotel, I was invited to join the Golden Circle club and get my room upgraded to the executive floor...which of course I took …

Historical Traveler Reviews Island Shangri-La Hotel Hong Kong
This hotel takes up the 38th to 56th floors of a tower on the top end of a shopping center that has 3 towers in it. All different hotels. The shopping center has lots of high end stores and even a McDonalds and Starbucks for the normal crew. You can walk from the hotel down through the shopping center to the main street with the old fashion double deck trolly going from one end of HK to the other. It's a neat ride for 2 HK dollars (25 cents US).
I can not speak more highly of the Island Shangri-La ... it is the BEST hotel I have ever stayed and throughtly deserves it's 6 star rating.
Just returned from HK (Easter 2005) and a 8 night stay at the Island Shangri-La. One word - AMAZING
My wife and I stayed at the Shangri-la Christmas 2004 and enjoyed one of the best holidays ever spent away from home at this time of year.
I stayed at this hotel last year and it blew my mind! I can only say this hotel deserves more than 'excellent' . I have stayed at luxury hotels all over the world but never stayed anywhere that comes near the Island Shangri-la. My room was absolutely stunning. Everything was the finest quality from the silk drapes, magnificent furniture, breathtaking views (I was on the 49th floor), every conceivable extra of the very highest quality, total technological integration, outstanding service.
I have never stayed at a hotel of this magnitude! Awesome! The breakfast buffet with the large shrimp, and everything you could name was awesome!
The room had sensored lighting. They also had two toilets, one that washed your "you know what." (I forgot what you call those things.)
They had tea and an fruit basket for me in the room.
I went with my church group. Though I would love to go again, an opportunity that grand will probably never happen again.
If not the best, definitely one of the best worldwide
This hotel may well deserve 6 or 7 stars, if they existed. Perfect in every aspect. Add to this, one of the most spacious and comfortable rooms I ever have stayed and a fantastic view from virtually every room, either on the bay or on Victoria Peak. The thirty-store painting in the inner court is one of the most incredible things I have ever seen. To try at least once in your life.
(Stayed third week of Sept 2003 - dlx Harbour View room)
Perfect Place on HK Island
We stayed in the Island Shangri-La in May and it was truly our best hotel experience ever. Extreemly large rooms with the finest furnishing and beautiful bathrooms. The best is the stunning atrium with the huge mural. Definately the best hotel in Hong Kong, not so busy and loud as the Peninsula (construction area around) and within easy reach of everything
Best hotel in Hong Kong 2004
Stayed here January 2004. The hotel kindly upgraded me to the newly renovated harbour view rooms which was very luxurious. A beautiful marbled bathroom with Plasma-TV in the wall and separate shower. Room had comfortable sitting area and stunning views. Health Club and pool facilities are top not to forget the famous Petrus restaurant on level 56 !!
Staff is extremely helpful and the doorman has always a smile for you
