Exec lounge has two levels. If main level is busy, go upstairs as it's usually quieter. Thanks to yurtripper for the tip.

Lounge is on the fifth floor.

Yes, the default at Marriott branded properties that have a lounge will be lounge breakfast (though some of the Asian Marriotts may be more generous and allow a restaurant breakfast as well). Different rule at SPG properties, where you have choice of breakfast as a welcome amenity.

Booked 3 nights 5/24-5/27 in a Deluxe, 1 King room as a Plat Elite.
Did cash + pts.
What are my chances of getting an upgrade to a suite?

If unlikely, are there any other recommendations on which Marriott/SPG to book in HK to maximize my chances of a suite upgrade?

0 chance. Iíve stayed here maybe 7-9 times over past couple years and have never seen a suite.

I've gotten a suite, I think, every time except once. The Sheraton always has suites. Their normal plat upgrade is to harbor view so ask for suite.

I've also almost always gotten a suite at w. Never at Renaissance.

Have you asked? I was pre-assigned a room after Iíd checked in online and so asked if there were any suites when I turned up. There were. I got one.

This is one hotel that doesnít seem to mind if you ask and will give you one if available.

Then you are cursed. Avoid black cats, ladders, and broken mirrors before you check in next time.

i know that itís possible because Iíve done it last year.

I have stayed at this property twice, a week apart back in the summer of 2016. At that time I was a Lifetime Platinum (now Titanium). I was 1 for 2. Upgraded to a suite on the first stay, no upgrade on the second.

At hotel now. No upgrade for me.

executive lounge would be considered excellent by usa standards. My favorite items in the am were black pepper smoked salmon and siu mai.

however, the updated room i received was disappointing.

Plat elite, no suite upgrade, all i got was higher floor on 28.

Looking to book this hotel for an upcoming trip. Will likely book an exec room, anyone know if its worth paying the difference to get a Harbor View room compared to a Mountain View room? Looks like the view from the Harbor rooms are pretty obstructed anyway.

Hi,

Welcome to flyertalk hsan,

https://www.marriott.com/hotels/trav...tel-hong-kong/

( Photos 6-7) give a reasonable view of what to expect harbour view wise.
How much extra is the Harbour view room compared to the mountain view?)

If it was significant I probably would not bother.

Regards

TBS

By Asian standards, the lounge still stands out. It’s the best lounge I’ve been to in terms of food selection, with decent quality as well.

Can agree to the lounge is fantastic. Not so satisfied with the oldish rooms but wow that lounge was fantastic. Shame there were no alcohol to have after 8.30 Pm.
If you're looking for the best lounge I must say the lounge at JW Marriott Macau. Best lounge we've been to.
