Stayed at the Mercer for three nights at the beginning of November. Overall our stay was very pleasant and staff was great. The room was well appointed and suited our needs perfectly. The glass bathroom door was a little odd, but overall the room was very nice (we were staying in the one-bedroom suite). The location was great and we were within walking distance from pretty much everything we were looking for.
The biggest problem that we had with the hotel was the lack of a restaurant or room service. We have an 18 month old and at times she is a cranky pants and can't hold off sleep until after we eat. On one of the nights my husband had to sneak out (so we wouldn't wake her up) in order to go get food as there weren't any options at the hotel. The hotel does, however, have a decent breakfast buffet that was included in our room.
The other big issue for us was finding a babysitter. I had been told that they hotel had a babysitting service that they used for guests. When I inquired about pricing we were told that it was 800HKD/hour! We weren't expecting anything cheap, but since the most we had paid at a hotel was 20 Euros/hour in Paris I was not expecting it to be that much. Due to the babysitter issue we weren't able to go out as we had hoped. C'est la vie!
A minor note, but we found the pool to be VERY disappointing. Our daughter loves to swim, but the pool it TINY and situated between the buildings and looked dark and dank. It also was not heated so despite the 80 degree weather the pool was too cold for even my husband to brave.
In the end we found the hotel to be quite nice and we really enjoyed our stay there. I would definitely stay again, but this time look into babysitting elsewhere!
