Any way of booking HK 5* hotels with decent discount ?

In days gone by there were some rather 'grey' operators in HK who seemed able to book 5* hotels at significantly discounted prices. Have they all disappeared ? Is there now effectively only one price ?

A Virtuoso travel agent (or Amex FHR if you have platinum or above) can get breakfast included, an additional perq, and sometimes has a free night deal. Not sure if that qualifies as a decent discount.

Thanks, but nothing available when I want to stay.

In the past, ba.com has offered some very good rates on hotels in HKG. Might be worth a look.

I did check but not much doing. I remember that CX also had great rates, but I can't see where they are offered now.
