"For many guests, a long list of amenities makes up for an isolated-from-action locale: most of the large, comfortable, contemporary rooms have harbor views."
"The 554-room Harbour Grand is slightly removed from the main attractions in Kowloon. However, many choose to stay here precisely because it isn't in the center of the hustle and bustle." Full review
Michelin Guide
"This shimmering glass structure is right on the waterfront and offers superb views across Victoria Harbour."
Star Service
"Although it is not in the thick of the action, this hotel is close enough to reach Hong Kong Island by Star Ferry (a pier is close by) or taxi within 20 minutes" Full review
From here, the views can be endless except on foggy days, and locals often choose to conduct informal business dealings over lunch.
