My family of 7 - wife, three kids, and my parents are taking a vacation together. Spending 3 nights in HKG. This is the first time we are going together. My folks haven't been back in years. I have read the many reports on the hotels in HK on this forum and others. Everyone raves about many of the higher end hotels, they all seem to be in out of the way locations or on HK Island - yes, HK is small and so is Singapore, but there are still location factors to consider with kids and just things to do. We have never stayed at any chain hotel the other times we've been there (We loved the location of Royal Plaza in Mongkok East station). Our preference is Kowloon. HK Island just is not convenient at all IMO for food, general touristy things and walking around. The local and independent hotels are running close to $200-$400 a night at least (for the amount of rooms we need) and I have a decent amount of points in all the major chains - Thanks Chase, Citi and Amex. It seems like either the Sheraton Towers or HI Golden Mile and Hyatt Regency are the best choices. Are there other suggestions? We would consider a non-chain too if the price point is cheap enough that it makes sense, though having a lounge with kids to get drinks and snacks back to the room is a nice perk. I have gold status on SPG, Diamond on Hyatt, Platinum on Marriott and not interested in Conrad even with Diamond status, though a bear would be nice.
