Hong Kong and Macau - Hotel HK$2000/night
May 7, 12, 12:17 am
Please help with my hotel selection.
I need to make a 24 day stay in HK working in Central area.
Can only pay around $2000HKD per night.
Only requirement is to have a good quiet hotel with a gym!
Breakfast would be nice to have but not required.

You shouldn't have a problem getting a room with your basic requirements for that rate. I'm not sure which ones have gyms but you can try this website (http://www.asiatravel.com/hongkong.html) which has a pretty good listing of hotels and amenities.
I have no affiliation with them but I usually refer friends to that website as a starting point if they have no idea where to stay in HKG.
For $2000/night you should be able to get something in central Hong Kong. If you are staying for 24 nights, it might be a good idea to call the hotels directly to see if they have a long stay discount.
I can see that you are HH Diamond, you might want to check if you can get Conrad Hong Kong for HKD 2000 a night - try search for discount codes under Hilton's thread. Also Hilton has a best price guarantee that will match prices from other websites.

If you want to stay in Central, Mandarin and Four Seasons are probably too expensive. But like others said, you can definitely call and try to negotiate, for long stays they might work with you. Depends on the season, between now and summer I believe it's a bit quieter.
LKF Hotel is another option that is cheaper and closer in price but still in Central.
Did you think about service apartments? Shama is nice, there's one on Hollywood road.
Further away there's a few properties at Pacific Place in Admiralty. Marriott, Shangri-la and Conrad.
the public transport there is so good that if needed you could stay farther from central w/o much hassle

I am partial to Hotel LKF, great location and easy to get to everywhere in Central. There is a small gym there between reception and the lifts, but not that good. If you want a good gym, go down to Pure Fitness at Hollywood Road and Elgin St (4 minute walk) - you can get a one month membership for HKD$2000 (at least that was the price when I bought one for a month 2 years ago).

I can reaffirm the recommendations already listed. Hotel LKF is a good hotel for the money you pay in Central. The location is good and the rates are a good bit lower than the 5* big chain hotels in/around Central. The Conrad and JW Marriott usually have similar rates and I think negotiating for around $2000 a night would be reasonable. The executive room in the Conrad are simply fantastic but the JW is good too.
You could also go for the Sheraton in TST located right above the MTR station, regular rates for King rooms are around $2000 iirc ($1800 for Single) and it's a quick shot from TST station to Central station in the morning, only one stop further than the JW or Conrad at Admiralty. You may be able to snag a Towers room (executive room) for $2000 for such a long stay. The Sheraton's really showing its age though. The W is also another possibility for that price range with negotiation, it's by Kowloon station/ICC tower and one stop from Central. It's pretty much in the middle of nowhere but if you like the W style the HK W is a fine example of it.

If you're happy to travel a couple of stations on the MTR then I'd look at the Excelsior in Causeway Bay. It's part of the Mandarin Oriental group and the staff are wonderful.
I'm sure i've seen long stay rates on their website before but can't see anything at the moment.
Regular rates start around the $1500 mark, with their exec. floor starting from $1880, although there's a big variation in prices depending on when you want to stay.

Thanks everyone for the help.
A little post trip feedback.
So I negotiated with Conrad but they were only able to offer me best rate of HKD2300+10% service charge after many emails. I know this is a good rate, but I couldn't accept it because I wouldn't be able to bill my client and also didn't want to use my own funds for a work trip.
I had to work in Central for 1 week and Quarry Bay for 2.5weeks.
So first week I stayed at Langham Place MongKok and took the MTR ~20mins to central.
Very nice hotel and breakfast for $2000pn. Internet is expensive and I ended up getting 3G sim card instead of paying the ridiculous daily rate. Great gym with real free weights set. Didn't get access to the Club Lounge, which would have cost HKD$500pn :eek:
After, I moved on Sunday to EAST hotel in TaiKoo. Also had to negotiate a rate of HKD2000pn including breakfast, which is only continental, not worth the price. Gym is small and same equipment as average US Hilton, I was very disappointed.
Emailed other 5-star hotels to negotiate a rate of 2000 but none near central to Causeway Bay willing to give in. So took my money else where.
Doing this again in 2 weeks time and spent the last 2 hours doing hotel research, but this time will work in Central for 3.5wks, so likely to stick with Langham unless other hotels are willing to take my money.

It is open 24/7 with some great food which changes daily. For example one day it was yum cha from Ming court (Michelin 2-star restaurant in the hotel, and famous for its yum cha). Not your average hotel club, by any means.
