Harbour Grand Hong Kong Rating: 4.5 Pearls
Causeway Bay, Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong

Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • All 828 rooms have views of the harbor
  • Outdoor patio area has a heated pool with fabulous views, a Jacuzzi, and a kiddy pool
  • 3 upscale restaurants, a cafe with a la carte and buffet options, and a lobby lounge
  • Over 12,00 square feet of meeting space and a business center with secretarial services
  • Up-to-date fitness center and spa
  • Free bus shuttle to and from major sights
  • 24-hour room service

Cons

  • Peek-a-boo bathrooms aren't particularly kid-friendly (although a shade can be drawn for additional privacy)
  • Fee for Wi-Fi

Bottom Line

The Harbour Grand impresses guests upon entry. The massive marble lobby with huge chandeliers is imposing, and the stately, yet modern, look continues throughout the hotel. Rooms here are sexy and up-to-date, with none of the stuffy grandeur of some other luxury hotels in Hong Kong. Simple, sexy decor with peek-a-boo bathrooms, large sepia-toned wall photos behind the headboards, and views of the harbor give the rooms a sophisticated vibe, and they have been updated with flat-screen TVs and Wi-Fi (for an additional fee). Though the hotel has all of the amenities business travelers could want -- tons of meeting space, a business center, and 24-hour room service -- it attracts an equal number of leisure travelers, thanks in part to its large outdoor pool and kiddy pool, and free shuttle to nearby sights. Overall this 828-room mega-hotel is a gorgeous option; with four full restaurants, a fitness center, and a spa.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Overlooking the harbor, near the Causeway Bay area

The Harbour Grand is located near the Causeway Bay area, with stunning views over Victoria Harbor. It is within walking distance of Victoria Park and the Fortress Hill metro stop.

Hong Kong is filled with skyscrapers and tightly packed streets. Traffic can be a problem, so public transportation is the way to go here, and visitors can get around everywhere in this way. Another way to take in the sights is to ride the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbor, one of the world's busiest harbors. It's an essential part of local commuter life, but also an important aspect of the city's tourism. Once at Victoria Harbor's waterfront, visitors can seek the Avenue of the Stars -- Hong Kong's version of Hollywood's Walk of Fame. Avenue of the Stars is accompanied by the Symphony of the Stars, a sound and light show that pays tribute to the city's film industry. Visitors can experience thrill rides at Ocean Park Theme Park, or get lost in the magic at Hong Kong Disneyland, which incorporates the different lands of Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

To escape the madness of the city, visitors can take the Peak Tram -- which rises 1,300 feat above sea level to provide outrageous views of the city -- to Peak Tower, where they'll find Once at the top, The Peak shopping, dining, and The Sky Gallery displaying artwork by local Hong Kong artists.
