Also, we ate Brunch(dum sum) at Tim Lung Heen which was amazing. We had a drink at ozone but we werent very impressed by the bar tbh. The club spread however was pretty solid and the views from the club are ridiculous. All in all great stay!
Glad to hear that
Did you contact them prior to your stay and did they mention a possible upgrade ?

If it was not tour first marriage and she picked up the wrong picture,.....haha

I reached out a few months earlier asking if there were any amenities for Marriot Platinums and if i could upgrade to club level with points, which they declined. So i was surprised they hooked me up.

And yes that would have been awkward if the wrong picture was used!

Marriott Platinum members - do you get any benefits when staying here on points?

I'm not crazy about this hotel. In fact I don't like it. I don't like the location, is very " glitzy" and just not my style IMHO. I do think they have very good dim sum lunch! But I much prefer many other hotels in HK - FS, MO, even Pen and Intercontonental ( ex regent I think has best harbor views) although I preferHK side personally. But just my opinion!

The folks in the Marriott forum will no the answer to this question. My understanding is that Marriott Platinum is equivalent to Ritz-Carlton Platinu, as it is the exact same program just under different branding.

+1

Those in the know , stay on the island , not Kowloon side .
And if need be , go across by Star Ferry for the view , along with that from the Pen and Intercontonental

I don't like the overbearing decor of this hotel too, trying too much to scream luxury at guests and visitors. But I am more than willing to put up with it due to the lovely panoramic view, the great bathroom and super comfy bed. Also love the club lounge and it is super relaxing to just sip champagne in the evening while lounging by the window. Service has also improved a lot since my last stay nearly 3 years ago. It's now my favourite in Hong Kong, tie with the Landmark MO.

I still intend to try this hotel on club level. Sometimes I like hotels even if I am not wild about the decor etc... Good service and the experience of staying on such a high floor should make it worth a try.

It only really works on club level. Otherwise the hustle and bustle of the public spaces drives one crazy. Also probably want at least a corner view room.

That is exactly what I would book, if not a club level suite. At many hotels, perhaps most, that offer a club level I would hesitate to stay without club access.

In general I agree. Never less at some RC properties Club Level is not worth the extra bugs

I would never stay at R-C Tokyo without club access unless I were so busy that I would not have any time to spend at the hotel during the day.

Plus, if having a few drinks, afternoon tea, and spa treatments (club guests get spa credit) I am convinced that it actually saves money to stay on the club floors. Plus there's the view from the club lounge on the top floor...
