Four Seasons Hotel - Hong Kong | Hotel Review

Perfection in the Heart of Hong Kong


Four Seasons Hotel - Hong Kong: Hong Kong is home to some of the finest high-rise luxury hotels in the world catering to the corporate set, and the Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong definitely belongs to the top of the crop. This urban oasis has a superb location right in central Hong Kong lapped by Victoria Harbor. A direct line to the airport via the Hong Kong Station and easy access to the Central Ferry Piers and MTR subway make the Four Seasons Hong Kong an ideal place to stay when visiting Hong Kong.

First Impression/Lobby: The Four Seasons Hotel in Hong Kong features a lot of white. The design is clean and minimal, almost sterile. It has a very formal, modern and business feel and may not be suitable for those looking for complexity and color. The light-infused lobby is huge, and with all the marble and sharply dressed staff at hand, we knew right away we were in a true five-star hotel.

Reception: Check-in was fast and easy, and the staff friendly and professional as one can expect from a Four Seasons hotel, whose trademark service is legendary and known the world over. Within minutes, we were pointed to the hotel elevator for our ride to the 41st floor where our executive suite was located.

The Suite: The Four Seasons boasts some of the biggest rooms in Hong Kong, which is quite important in a crowded and dense city where space can be limited. Our room was a 68-square meter Four Seasons Executive Corner Suite, which featured wall to ceiling windows with panoramic views of Victoria Harbor and Kowloon. The view was spectacular! As with the overall design of the Four Seasons Hong Kong hotel, the interior of the room was slightly clinical but every inch was simply elegant. Natural hues, wood and silk were combined to create a contemporary Asian motif. It had a separate living room that features comfortable and chic furniture, a writing desk, and a 42-inch plasma screen satellite television. Everything looked brand new and the room had an overall fresh and crisp scent. The bed, linens and pillows were plush, lush and oh-so sumptuous, making sleep a wonderful bliss.

The marble bathroom was also quite spacious and had a deep-soaking tub, separate shower with rain shower, built-in TV, a separate alcove, and Bvlgari bath products. The suite also included a guest powder room.

Room Service: The room service menus had a great selection of cuisines. Placing an order was hassle-free and the food was delivered on time. Upon delivery, they arranged and set the tables complete with white tablecloth, silverware and china. It felt like a five star restaurant right in our room. Fabulous!

Housekeeping: The meticulous housekeeping and rigorous maintenance kept with the very high standards of a Four Seasons hotel. Everything was done perfectly from the arrangement of our belongings to the re-stocking of towels, slippers and robes. Not one thing was out of place.

Concierge: We asked the concierge for some dining recommendations and he suggested the Va Bene Italian Restaurantt and their very own French restaurant, Caprice. We decided to try both and the concierge made the necessary reservations for us without a hitch. We enjoyed both restaurants and commend the concierge for this.

Our only dismay with the concierge was that when we asked about the best way to get to the airport, they tried to sell us their (pricey) car transfer service. Luckily, another guest heard this and told us about the train which was located right across the street from the Four Seasons and goes straight to the airport. This was a lot more convenient, not to mention cheaper. We found out that the Four Seasons offered a complimentary transfer and luggage service to the train station, plus you can check in for your flight and drop your bags right there and then simply take the train for a 30 minute ride to the airport. It was quick, simple, easy and should have been recommended from the get go. Their attempt to sell us their transfer service really made us feel like they were trying to rip us off.

Restaurants: Hong Kong movie stars frequent the restaurants in the Four Seasons, especially Caprice, the French restaurant with three Michelin stars. We had dinner there and were treated with authentic and innovative French cuisine, earning the restaurant a Bombastic praise and rating from us. The hotel also has a Chinese restaurant called Lung King Heen, which specializes in contemporary Cantonese fare.

Other dining and entertainment options in the hotel include The Lounge, which is ideal for business chats, intimate meetings and afternoon tea, and the Blue Bar on the lobby level, which offers cocktails, wine and beer.

Pool/Spa/Activities: The hotel has an infinity pool, lap pools and whirlpool with a great view of the harbor. This is the best place to enjoy the famous Hong Kong Skyline while sipping margaritas. There is an executive lounge on the top floor with an outside deck. The spa at Four Seasons Hong Kong is among the largest of any hotel in the city.

Check-Out: Surprisingly, the check out was slow and laborious, something we do not normally experience at the Four Seasons. There were two billing issues that eventually were rectified, but it took much longer to get them fixed than it should have.

Overall Impression: Aside from the issue with the checkout and the airport transfer, our stay at the Four Seasons was perfect. The location on the “other” side of the harbor was one other minor downfall. Overall though, the Four Seasons Hong Kong offered and delivered everything a five-star hotel should and gets our rating of Bombastic.
