Uber's pick up location might be a bit difficult to navigate to unless you are familiar with HKG.

Taxi should be a bit cheaper than uber.
Many thanks

Do you mean HKG $900 or US $900? HKG $900 is not that great but not unreasonable either.

Are the rooms at this hotel really that small?

LOL. HKG $. Am here now in an upgraded "Deluxe" room (allegedly bigger than regular rooms) & yes, its really quite compact but well designed & for a quick overnighter is perfectly fine. There is a fair amount of traffic noise as the room is directly above the highway, although otherwise no disturbances - room X20.

Got a diamond welcome gift. I have no idea what it is. A grey microfibre cloth the size of a small towel (perhaps it is a towel?) Very strange.

Thanks for your clarification and for your description of the bizarre Diamond welcome gift

Wow. Just had "breakfast". Worst Hilton breakfast ever, IME. Chef simply couldn't cook a fried egg properly. Bread for toast texture of cardboard. Juice is vile sugary concentrate. As for the coffee - yikes - that's not coffee! Not recommended. Now, where's Starbucks...

Is anyone able to see reward redemptions for a standard room? I have found no redemptions available at all between May 2019 and September 2019.

There are premium room redemptions at 50k-60k/night which I don't believe is worth it.

I've also noticed this. However, it seems there are no standard rooms from 5th Feb till end of booking.... are they hotel playing tricks here?

I checked out today of a 5 nights stay. I will not comment on how to get there from HKG, cws did this well. Just to point that from Mongkok station, taking the Place Langhan exit instead of E1 leads to more steps but less stairs as there are escalators everywhere but for one flight of stairs.

I was welcomed as a Gold by the charming agent, no upgrade as they were fairly full (i did check and they were selling only single low floor rooms), given a free drink voucher as well as free breakfast confirmed.
The room was good, standard size for HK but I did not felt squeezed in any way, good use of space.
Service was a bit weird: some very good staff and some really poor. The cleaner affected to my floor was very generous with giving me extra water bottle and was always checking with me if she could clean when she saw me in the corrridor. On the other hand I had a lady come in at 22:30 for a turn down service.
Same with breakfast staff; very variable. The buffet get boring fairly fast, but is OK enough.

The location was great for me as I wanted to concentrate on North Kowloon and the New Territories on that trip, and Mongkok offers lots of entertainment in the evening and place to eat.

Some of what you said are true like sugary concentrate orange juice, Mr Juice variety with only 3% orange juice, but the rest are not, you do know this is a HGI not hilton right ? Have you ever stayed in any HGI in the US ? Compare to the HGI in the US, i can hardly say it is the worst HGI breakfast, certainly a lot more variety than HGI breakfast in the US, even better than the breakfast at Hilton SF financial district. I had 5 stays so far and not once did they not know how to cook a fried egg

My opinions are mine. Yours are yours. I therefore am not "wrong". Furthermore this is not a hotel in the U.S. so that comparison falls on deaf ears. I AM saying that it is the worst Hilton family hotel breakfast experience that I have had. Period. The egg "cook" was pathetic. Period. Now, moving on..

Other than Conrad bears/duckies, the only welcome take-home gift I've ever received at any Hilton was a really cheap tote bag.
This towel gift is amazing. I've never seen anything like it. Are they giving these away for a limited time only?
