IC Hong Kong

IC Hong Kong

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked Deluxe Harbour view and got the xx16 junior suite which is my favoured room type. They seem to be very strict with the 2 category upgrade.
(same for 2 different stays both within about one week)

How are the rooms?
Showing age, bit nice and well kept. View is great.
Big Jacuzzi bathtub, shower with steam function

How is the exec. lounge?
Still the best of any IC I know.

Did you receive a welcome gift?
A branded pen (both times)
They have a new voucher: choice of minibar credit, welcome points or drinks in the lobby bar

How was the minibar?
Very nice, but no bubbly.

What was good and what was bad?
+ view
+ lounge
+ service
- location: the escalator in front of the hotel down to the walkway is gone. Elevator still there, but sometimes there is a line of people waiting
- no free sauna for guests

Value for $ or Priority Club Points?
It is not cheap but worth the money

Would you return?[/QUOTE]
Absolutely, Looks like they are currently planning to close after chinese new year 2020.
