Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Hong Kong, 2014-present

Staying in JWM on our 5th night now on a 5th night free award booked before category change. Was assigned Exec Floor room on 34th floor but was tut was told restaurant breakfast was not an option for Gold. The GM was nearby when we checked in. He offered to walk us to our floor. I mentioned my slight disappointment on no restaurant brekkie, he laughed but brushed it off, saying the restaurant was getting crowded, that was why they started to limit access.

Louge breakfast is OK though only one kind of dim sum (mediocre too) offered on 2 out of the past 4 mornings. However the evening offerings are decent. They seem to put out different foods over the whole period when one kind of food runs out.

Last night it had Thai Chicken (thigh), then Cantonese roast duck, followed by Cantonese bbq pork.

We will move to Conrad across street tomorrow. Will see how Conrad treats us (HHonor Gold - Already has an upgraded Harbor View Exec Room so have lounge access too.)

Do platinums still get the restaurant option for breakfast at the JW HK?

I don't think I've ever been offered it (?)....

I can think of one time that I might have been when the hotel was very booked and I believe they might have said I could take breakfast downstairs.

The lounge there has a great breakfast for me (selection of items and quality-wise), so I don't think there is much else I would personally elect to eat downstairs that isn't available in the lounge. Everyone has their own preferences though, so I'm sure others probably don't have the items they like in the JW HK lounge.

I have gotten breakfast in the cafe on 2 occasions. The first time I wasn't aware they changed the policy so they took off the charge when I checked out. The second time was 2 months ago. I asked if I could when I checked in and they gave me 2 free ones for my 10 night stay.

I was at the JWM last month. I can't image the need to eat breakfast in the restaurant versus the lounge.

In the lounge you can custom order any type of egg you want. There is so much food - I am not sure what else you can eat.

Very good waffles too.

Any lounge offering is going to pale in comparison to the restaurant buffet. When I was there in November 2012, I had the option of eating breakfast in the restaurant. It was amazing, and I have serious doubts they can replicate that experience in the lounge.

Agreed. The cafe breakfast buffet is one hell of a cornucopia.

A comparison of JWM and Conrad Hong Kong

I posted this on the HHonor thread.

Overall we prefer JWM which only the room size is smaller, everything else is better than Conrad, especially the lounge, far better than Conrad.

Hong Kong

Some recent thoughts on best value for money and location as a tourist.

Mass transit is ok for me to get around

If it makes a difference I am Gold.

Thanks

It would help others to help you if you're more specific re: your request - ie, looking for property in HKG that is good location for tourist & about X rate & under.

Given the JW HK has gotten really good reviews & if someone has status, has access to exec lounge, etc, it could be considered good value to someone. But without specifics of what you're looking for/price range, it's a bit harder to provide valid input.

I say this generically - whenever someone is asking for help, the more info provided in the OP the better.

Cheers.

In that case, one of the Courtyards or the airport Sky City Marriott since mass transit is OK for you.
