Affordable Luxury at its Best
An elegant business hotel located in the shopping & business district of Causeway Bay, the Park Lane exceeded my expectations in every way. It has 758 rooms, half of which have a view of the glittering Hong Kong harbour and the rest with a view of the city streets below.
The service was good - I checked in past midnight and the reception was professional and courteous and I was assigned a beautifully furnished room (300 sq feet) with a bathroom that had see-through glass panelling - a clever design to make the room itself look even more spacious. The bed was very, very comfortable but this is Hong Kong, so admittedly I didn't really spend that much time in my room. (smile)
Unique Quality: The impeccable Breakfast
I can remember every little detail of the breakfast I had at The Cafe - the decor and furnishing were muted and impeccable, I had a gorgeous view of Victoria Park, and I can remember how happy I felt that bright autumn morning: with sunlight streaming in through the glass window and slight bite in the air brushing along my arms (from the temperature controlled air-conditioning, no doubt!). Breathing in the aroma and flavour of a good cup of hot steaming coffee ~ sigh~ To top off the experience the quality of the ingredients was obvious with every bite. The buffet featured a wide selection which included varieties of fresh juices, a Chinese selection (dimsum, pork buns, congee with fresh meats cooked the way you want it), an eggs station, braised mushrooms, sausages, bacon, hot oatmeal, yoghurts, salads, cheeses and cold cuts, pancakes, waffles, and much more.
Incidentally, a room guest can enjoy breakfast at a better rate than a walk-in customer, but you would need to inform the reception upon check in whether you want breakfast or not.
Our group had a meeting in one of the function rooms on the top floor. The room was comfortable with good meeting facilities (including automated blinds to keep out the daylight for projections), nice sandwiches, salads and soups, with attentive service at all times.
Within 5 minute of Causeway Bay MTR station, and also close to the Tramlines. It is also served by a direct door-to-door airport bus that you can ask the hotel to prebook for you at a cost of HK$140 one way. For shoppers, apart from the attached shopping mall, there is also unlimited choices on the streets, and late night shopping is possible because many shops here open till 10 or 11 pm. There is also a 24-hour supermarket just around the corner on Great George Street.
