It wasn't too crowded. But there were several large families from the mainland.

Does anyone make use of the house car to get around the Kowloon area when staying on the club level? Seems like a useful benefit for getting out of the hotel area in the morning, but no one seems to make use of it.

I used it once to get to TST. Pretty nice perk. You can reserve in advance.

You will 100% not get club access at the Ritz Hong Kong without paying for it.

Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong - PP upgrades?

I'm currently Platinum Premier, and I'm aware of the policies regarding upgrades and perks at the RC properties.

That said, are there recent reports of upgrades, lounge access, etc., at the Hong Kong RC for PP members? I expect to spend a couple of nights there next month.

Thank you.

They've always been generous with upgrades. They often pre-upgrade to Grand Victoria from base room a few days before check-in.

Lounge access is like most RCs: you'll need to pay for it.

Same here. I got the exact Club room that I paid for.

Interesting data points. Iíve always gotten the Grand Victoria from base Virtuoso bookings as a Plat. Once they pulled the last Grand Victoria from inventory and assigned it to me as upgrade 3 days before arrival (was not a special occasion), so I assumed they were generous with upgrades.

They upgraded my dad (Plat) on the associate rate to a seaview corner, which was changed to a Victoria Harbor view upon check in because we needed two beds. Also two drink coupons (as opposed to one?) to Ozone because we are both Plat/PP.

I got upgraded to victoria harbor suite (pre-merger stay for 10 nights). I paid extra for club access, IIRC 1400 HKD/night. Initially booked lowest category room on BRG rate, to date itís been my best stay in a city hotel. Absolutely outstanding property in all the aspects.
