What is your Priority Club status?
Platinum

Were you (or for multi-stayers are you generally) happy with the hotel/stay?
Yes

Which room did you book and which upgrade did you receive?
Booked standard room on points, received executive room (larger corner room)

How are the rooms?
The executive room is located on one side of the building, with views across both Happy Valey and the Morrison Hill Road junction. Basically, the executive room is like their suite, but without the living room. The bathtub is located directly next to the window, with great outside views.

How is the exec. lounge?
The don't have an executive lounge, yet guests booking a club room (called "privilege room" here) will receive free consumtion at the hotel's bar during happy hour (5pm to 8pm)

What was good and what was bad?
Good:
* The location just a few 100 m away from Causeway Bay MRT Exit A (Times Square) is definitely one of the main advantages of this hotel
* The hotel is generally kept in a very good state
* Nice and modern decor

Bad:
* The lobby is a bit small and there can sometimes be a bit of a language barrier when interacting with staff
* They seem to have abandoned the idea of providing free mobile phones (including mobile WiFi Hotspot)

Value for $ or Priority Club Points? Would you return?
At 55K points per night, the hotel is not on the cheap side, but considering the upgrade, I would say it's been a good redemption. I will definitely return, and have done so many times already.
