I tend to stay at the Island Shangri-la when in HK due to its location (close to Central and also above Pacific Place and Admiralty MTR).
The staff are excellent throughout the hotel. On my latest trip Ivy from the Spa/pool warrants special praise as does Penny from the Front Desk. 6 out of 5 for her. The room service is quick and the breakfast in Cafe Too outstanding - you need to leave yourself about an hour to deal with it properly (and then go back to your room as you have eaten so much....). The room has a good TV with decent TV channels (but lacks a DVD player). And there is free WiFi throughout the hotel, which is great. The pool is also good and never seems to be busy despite the size of the hotel.
The bathrooms can be a bit disappointing depending on what room you get. For the price of the hotel I would expect a separate shower rather than just a bath with a shower attachment. Plus I really don't like the twins rooms and I seem to get those more often these days - the huge king size beds are great but the twins are basically just two singles that are not that big even for a single traveller.
But a good hotel and I'd stay there again.
