This was our second trip together to Hong Kong. (My wife used to fly a HK route for United has been here more times than she cares to remember). My wife suggested the Conrad for its very central location in HK. I was a bit resistent because the Conrad is a fairly traditional hotel and my tastes run more to the modern (think Four Seasons). I'm glad she prevailed.
The Conrad is in fact very centrally located. Though it has been opened for some time you simply would never know it as it has been meticulously maintained. This place is spotless. If you told me that it was built 5 years ago I would not argue save for a couple of minor (to us) details. The baths are a little small for a modern 5 star and the lighting systems a little unusual and not very intuitive.
Other than these rather small quibbles we really enjoyed our stay. We stay primarily in 5-star hotels world wide and so have something to compare it to. It measured up in all regards - service, amenities, ambiance, beautiful and very comfortable common areas, high end wood and stone finishes, food quality, etc.
The service in particular is what you would expect from a high-end major metropolitan 5-star. Everyone we interacted with was polite and attentive without being obsequious, knew their job and how to go about carrying it out quickly and accurately. For a Westerner traveling in Asia language is sometimes a problem (even in English speaking Hong Kong). This was never an issue at the Conrad.
I've stayed in at least one other property here - also a 5-star - and while its style is more to my taste, the next time we come to HK I'll book the Conrad.
One last item of mention. Great value for the money. We had a corner one-bedroom suite with a great harbor and Kowloon view on the 46th floor for about 750 US per night. This was about $400 per night below the other property. Because I am Hilton Gold they were kind enough to comp us breakfast for 3 (we were traveling with my wife's 13 Y.O.) and a welcome drink in their lounge. A nice touch.
