“Hong Kong at its best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2012 via mobile

The Grand Stanford is perfectly located with stunning Hong Kong views - make sure to get a room with a view it is worth the price. Booked club intercontinental access and the service and breakfast buffet are impeccable. Being from Switzerland but living in the US we could not get enough from the fresh proper bread in the morning - just like at home...
Free wifi comes included with club access and is very solid and fast. Everything is in easy walking distance: 15 minutes to star ferry terminal, same to Harbor shopping mall and an easy HK$80 cab ride to Wan-Chai if need be. The sightseeing tour bus stops right in front of the hotel. Lobby a bit dated but still grand and employees are extremely friendly. Our room 1142 is brand new (on some floors there seems to still be some renovation) and features some great details like a top opening safe in a pull out drawer (don't we all hate to crawl into closets to access our belongings as most hotels place them there), a built in power data and adapter strip next to desk, flat screen TV, iPod/iPhone docking station, ample seating space, enough shelf and storage space and very efficient bathroom. Not to mention the nice linen and oh: did I mention the view??.... Thanks for a great stay team Intercontinental....

We chose the Intercontinental Grand Stanford Hotel for our first visit to Hong Kong as we wanted a nice hotel at a reasonable price. We had booked our side harbor premier room well in advance and were not disappointed with our selection.

The hotel website had given warning about on going renovations and the possibility of construction noise for the period of time including our visit, but we heard almost no noise in our room. The side harbor view gave a clear shot of the harbor with almost no obstructions and we were more than happy with our room.

Check in was very easy and the front desk staff and front door personnel were very helpful. Our room was on the 12th floor and we had two beds in the room. The all white bedding was very clean and beds were very comfortable. Our room had both a shower and bathtub and had many complimentary toiletries. We had several bottles of complimentary water provided each day.

One day we had the "do not disturb" sign up until well in the evening, but after dinner, there was an attendant who made sure our room had fresh towels and that we were comfortable. A free newspaper was at our door each day, and chocolates before bedtime.

We made use of the travel desk in the hotel, and got tickets to Disneyland as well as transportation to and from the park for the three of us for approx $150.00 USD. The area is about 6 blocks or so away from Nathan Road, but we had no objections to walking over there. We found many nearby restaurants that suited our needs.

The hotel is right on Victoria Harbor separated by a highway with a pedestrian bridge at the hotel. We walked across the bridge and down to the Avenue of the Stars. In addition to that, we took the high speed ferry boat over to Macau which was quite enjoyable. About an hour ferry ride.

All in all, we enjoyed our visit to Hong Kong. We were very pleased with the Intercontinental Grand Stanford. Their breakfast buffet was absolutely delicious, and the only negative that I would mention, was the price of the buffet. The charge was about $34 USD (including service charge), which was high in my opinion. Oh, and did I mention the roof top pool? Be sure to bring your swim suit as you won't want to miss out on that.

Room Tip: Side Harbor Premier rooms are just as good as full harbor view.

Beware there a 2 Intercons in HK. The other one has much better location fronting the harbour. This is very much a level below the other one. Renovation work in progress now. But still an ok hotel in an ok location.

Room Tip: Renovation work happening. Be sure to get a room away from the noise.

good comfort and never a dull moment speaking with hotel staff. peaceful and quiet being further away from main TST. good size and very conducive work corner.. about 10 mins (fastwalk) away from the nearest mtr entrance; not the most convenient especially on rainy days..another 5 mins to the mtr platform.

Great beds, really comfortable, probably one of the best beds. Reasonable prices for the rooms. Location is ok, not deep in TST but close enough. It's not as stuffy as the 5 stars on the Hk side. Loved this hotel. And if you are in HK, you won't stay in the hotel much as there is too much to see. Stayed here 6 years ago.
