A little weary I accepted my room keys and headed up to drop off my bags.
Now I had booked the base room (not cheap at A$370/night), and expected to receive an upgrade as an Hhonors Gold member, but was slightly disappointed to receive what was supposedly a “peak view” room.
Don’t get me wrong, it was a perfectly fine room, but it just lacked a little something.
Looking back towards the door from the peak view room
the supposed peak view
A little disappointed, i trotted off to the executive lounge to grab the end of cocktail hour.
Another area of the exec lounge
Decent range of drinks on offer during cocktail hour, however my over-enthusiastic server gave me a tumbler 3/4 filled with rum, and only 1 glass – not particularly practical!
Beautiful sunset over the harbour
A bit of persistence and goodwill prevailed – thanks Conrad Hong Kong!
Looking back towards the entry door, bathroom on the left, storage on the right
Breakfast spread in the exec. lounge was sufficient, but i was hoping for a variety of asian goodies
The lounge is a little pokey so the food was spread out across a number of the rooms
The hot selection in the lounge
Great view – particularly as the clouds rolled in and out
The lounge was certainly a lot quieter than downstairs
Plenty of carbs on offer in the main buffet
Whilst the offerings were varied, I’m still yet to find a knock your socks off breakfast buffet – if you’ve got any suggestions – please leave a comment!
Sunrise from the harbour view upgrade
The common areas had a pretty cool old world feel
Took a walk via the pool after breakfast. Certainly not as large as the grand hyatt down in Wan Chai
Room was a little outdated – finding all the light switches was a PITA!
Couldn’t get a great shot of the lobby, the ceilings were super high and nicely decked out overall
The view reminded me alot of the and watching the boats go by in the harbour
