Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Modern rooms with signature bedding and gorgeous views
  • Sleek marble bathrooms with glass walk-in showers
  • Free shuttle to Central, Admiralty, and Macau Ferry Terminal
  • Great MoMo Café and a lobby bar with light snacks
  • Well-equipped business center, and an interactive concierge service
  • Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel
  • Bright, modern fitness center with great city views
  • Family-friendly amenities include in-room mini-fridges and babysitting services
  • Free bottled water

Cons

  • Limited access to public transportation (but free shuttle service)
  • Standard rooms are smallish (typical of Hong Kong)
  • Glass-enclosed bathrooms lack privacy

Bottom Line

This 240-room Courtyard by Marriott has all the basics of an upscale business chain hotel -- a modern fitness center, a solid restaurant and a lobby bar, a well-equipped business center, and free Wi-Fi -- but it's a good pick for families as well. Rooms, though somewhat small (typical of Hong Kong), offer great amenities, including small sitting areas, mini-fridges, signature bedding, flat-screen TVs, and marble bathrooms with sleek rainfall showerheads. The highlight, however, are the great harbor and city views from most rooms and the gym. While location is not central, the hotel does offer free shuttle service to Central, Admiralty, and the Macau Ferry Terminal. Plus, it’s across the bridge from Tsim Sha Tsui, and cabs are easy to find.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

West of Central neighborhood, near great dining and shopping -- but far from major attractions

The hotel is located on Connaught Road, the main thoroughfare on Hong Kong Island. It is right across the Western Harbour Crossing from Kowloon, but a little removed from the main attractions. Overlooking the Victoria Harbour in a mainly residential area west of Central, the hotel can feel somewhat isolated, especially due to the lack of subway stops nearby. There are trams and buses, but for longer distances a cab will probably be necessary. The hotel provides shuttle service to Central and Admiralty areas, where the subway can be found, and to the Macau Ferry Terminal. Make sure to get a schedule at front desk before planning your day. There are a few interesting stores and some quality restaurants in the neighborhood, but you’ll have to take some kind of transportation to visit the sights.

The business and financial hub of the city, Central overlooks the water from the north shore of Hong Kong Island. Its skyline is defined by tall glass-and-steel buildings and has a modern look, but some buildings from the neighborhood's past as a former British colony and military port remain.

Many tourists stay in or visit Central; its mix of modern and historic is appealing, and there are plenty of sights to take in. Central is home not only to upscale shopping centers and top-notch restaurants, but it is also home to several beautiful parks and gardens. The Chater Garden features a zoo and a playground, popular among families, and Hong Kong Park is the site of the Museum of Tea, housed in a historic colonial building.

  • 35-minute drive (without traffic) to Hong Kong International Airport
  • 5-minute shuttle ride to Central subway station
  • 6-minute drive to upscale shopping at IFC Mall, or 20 minutes via public transportation
  • 7-minute drive to Jade Market
  • 8-minute drive to Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
  • 8-minute drive to Wan Chai Ferry Pier
  • 9-minute drive to Expo Promenade
  • 11-minute drive to Victoria Park
  • 11-minute drive to Hong Kong Stadium
  • 12-minute drive to Hong Kong Park
  • 12-minute drive to the Tsim Sha Tsui area
  • 19-minute drive to The Peak
  • 19-minute drive to Ma Wan Tung Wan Beach
  • 22-minute drive to Tai Tam Country Park
  • 23-minute drive to Hong Kong Disneyland
  • 35-minute drive to Big Wave Bay Beach
