Rated 2 out of 5 by mike2580 hotel has issues and staff is friendly yet poorly trained
I have stayed here 40 days so far this year and each time I have several issues, from the fire alarm going off at 4 AM to carpet cleaning at 5 am in the hall. management seems poor, you here I am sorry a lot, that's not how to run a business

WAITED 20 minutes in gold spg line for check in.
WAITED 2 hours for room to be readied.
WAITED 2 hours to sleep as constructions crew next door "shook" the building!!!
WAITED 30 minutes for restaurant to open in morning.
WAITED 10 minutes in gold spg line for check out.
Other than the waiting - most everything is average (at best) compared to similar hotels locally.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Antonio highlights of our 2-night stay
We chose the Sheraton HK because of its location - steps from the Star Ferry, easy access to airport (via A21 bus). Our room on the 9th had a good view of Central and was surprising quiet. It came with a wonderful feature - a smartphone for use during our stay! The pool on the 18th was open until 10 pm, has 3 hot tubs, and magnificent nighttime views. A real highlight of our stay was meeting Cinty - a diminutive server in the rest. She demonstrated strong leadership skills and is one reason we will return to this hotel.

I am thankful as you have great hotel staff that make my stay very comfortable. As I recall during my recent stay, we have one of the kid that was not feeling very well and was accompany by hotel staff to the nearest clinic. Accorded our late check out instead of we have to roam about in the streets. Well Done... I will come back again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Dg1234 Total disappointment
Unfriendly staff during check in, never provide info about the hotel or where the breakfast is going to be, rude and impatient when answer questions. Also charge me extra bed when I never request for it, only saw on bill but no extra bed was delivered until the second night of my stay!? Had to change room in between as after my first night, I got insects bites. Although the staff assured me that they found no bugs in the room but I got new bites marks after spending the afternoon in the hotel. Despite wasting time to pack and unpack again, waited for more than half an hour to get the bell boy to help us with the move, had to call twice in between and the response was "my colleague will be there right away" and " no one came to your room yet and hand you the key?". Paying a 5 star price only to get 1 star treatment!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sean11 Worst hotel ever..
Worst hotel experience ever.
1. Took 15min to check in.. We can let that one slide
2. Not a single smile within that 15min.
3. Zero recognition of SPG status (no benefit explanations either)
4. Didn't even tell me where the elevator was after check in nor asked if i had any luggage at the front to be delivered to the room. (Pretty obvious i should have luggage since she asked for my passport)
5. None of the pre booking requests were met. (Upper floor, nonsmoking, proximity to elevator,etc) didnt even bother to look i guess.
6. After the unpleasant check in..came up to the room to find hair everywhere... This disgusts me.
7. I don't even know where they serve breakfast. Atleast try to explain the basic thing that are including in the suite room package.
Overall..very bad unpleasant hotel in a very good location.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JayJaySt Met expectations
The hotel though rather old, was well maintained. Good and responsive staffs. The buffet breakfast was great, but the thing that always kept me down about the hotel is the size of the room is pretty small, but can't blame it because the hotel is located in HK in which normally the rooms are kinda small.

We had to unexpectedly stay four nights when both my husband and I became ill with a virus.
Front desk found us a room quickly, guest services sent tea, honey and lemon - so appreciated.
Ben in the breakfast lounge on top floor was amazing and took such good care of us every visit.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Boyde Hotel location is cool but it's old and pricey
the hotel has a great view of HK island which is nice, but it's not worth how much your paying.
Swimming pool and gym is ok.
Restaurants are good.
The staff and hotel quality just didn't feel like a standard SPG standard every time I come to this hotel I never get an upgraded and the room just feels like such poor quality, bed is small, interior design is ok, carpet floors Which are tough to maintance.
It's not a bad hotel but it isn't a great one, don't relay on your SPG status for this hotel won't work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by NSCT Worst recognition/worst lounge for Platinum members in Asia
First time I have ever had to post anything negative online about starwood but this hotel provides the worst SPG platinum recognition in Asia: poor lounge offering and service for platinum combine with a refusal to acknowledge and address this in a satisfactory manner.

Rated 4 out of 5 by TravelinKen New, Comfortable Rooms and Friendly Staff in a Good Location
This was my first trip to Hong Kong and I stayed at the Sheraton because I was there for a small client meeting. My room was fairly large with lots of windows overlooking the harbor. That was wonderful. It looked newly renovated and I had no complaints except for one minor item. The bathroom sink faucet is located so close to the side of the glass bowl and so low that it’s difficult to access the water from the faucet. Otherwise, it was comfortable and easy to work in. The closet was large enough for all of my items and I was very pleased.
The hotel is in a great location along Nathan Road there are plenty of opportunities to walk outside the hotel and have plenty to do. You could also easily walk to the Star Ferry.
All of the staff I encountered were friendly, helpful and welcoming throughout my entire stay. That was very impressive.
There is a Platinum lounge at this hotel but it’s very disappointing compared to the lounges at many other Sheraton hotels. It’s better than no lounge at all but you will have to lower your expectations.
The parking is very limited at the hotel itself but they can recommend a nearby garage that is not affiliated with the hotel. The hotel buffet breakfast is large and there are many items to choose from.
If I am in the area again I would stay here again because of the nice rooms and location within the city.

Rated 4 out of 5 by mosbos Great Location
The location is literally next to iconic Peninsula hotel on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong, and minutes from TST Metro station. Walking distance to all the major shopping of Nathan road and equally easy commute to Hong Kong island.
The SPG floor was decent, although the rooms suffered from a few basic issues. There was a perpetual drainage issue in an all glass sink in the bathroom and the room temperature was limited 20-24C and averaged 22 almost all the time, which was difficult to change. Hotel offered a portable heater on a particularly chilly night. Overall good value for money with corporate rates.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Apecalvin Keep up the good work, but keep rates fair and competitive
This time, I stayed here for six nights, and once again, the hotel delivered on all fronts! Platinum recognition was excellent and my suite looked younger and felt more spacious, the result of a recent makeover. The full breakfast at the café was really good, though I would have preferred a bigger local selection. I love the rotating warmer for pastries, and I have said many times in previous reviews that every SPG hotel should have one of these. Staff was attentive, in particular the gentleman who looked after us in the Platinum Lounge. I have no issues with the revamped lounge, consisting of a cluster of rooms. In fact, I found the unusual layout quite interesting. But the selection and quality of food can be quite uneven, with better offerings on some nights and rather uninteresting food on other nights. Room attendants were polite and always ready with a greeting – in some other hotels, though rarely in Asia, housekeeping staff can sometimes be sullen. Cleanliness of the room and public areas was also faultless. I also loved the rooftop gym and pool!
I am sometimes very amused by the negative feedback this hotel seems to attract. Ultimately, I suppose, people have very high expectations of this hotel simply because of how much they pay for a night here. Management needs to be watchful in keeping prices competitive with similar class hotels in the area. If rates are fair, and the hotel acknowledges that there is room for improvement, and strives to uphold the high service standards that I have always enjoyed here, I will definitely keep coming back.

Rated 4 out of 5 by hk15 Housekeeping
We were guest of your hotel from March 7th to March 21st and had a very enjoyable experience. During our stay my wife became ill and a doctor was called. Before the doctor arrived I had explained the situation to Ah Yin the housekeeper on our floor and asked her if it was possible for them to clean our room prior to the doctor arriving. Ms. Ah Yin went out of her way to make sure our room was cleaned within a short period of time. We would like to bring this situation to your attention because we want you to know how your staff is willing to go out of their way to help your guests. The housekeeping staff always worked in a fast and efficient manner and were always friendly. Which made our stay that much more pleasant.
The next time we return to Hong Kong we will definitely be staying at your hotel.
Thank you very much,
Cheryl & David

Rated 5 out of 5 by AnyName Great aftersales service
I wanted to register my appreciation for the team at the Sheraton for following up with some "unfinished business" two months after my stay at the property. I was expecting an item to be delivered to the hotel during my stay and it never came.
I trusted the Sheraton team when they said they had continued checking but didn't receive anything. I was right to do so. The item finally came today - in an overseas mail packet, and courtesy of the Sheraton! The team had forwarded the item, unopened, to my home. (Yes, the item was issued just this month)
Thank you team. I'll certainly be staying with you again when I next visit HK.
Cheers and Kung Hei Fatt Choi!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Travelalot33 Love this hotel, its views, and its location
Our third stay here over the years. Love the harbor view from the Tower Rooms and the Tower Lounge. Great location on Nathan Road, near the Star Ferry and metro. Tower staff are great at both the check-in desk and in the Tower Lounge. Concierge in the lobby was very helpful. Breakfast buffet and the breakfast on the 18th floor for Tower guests are both great. Evening hors d'oeuvres in the Tower lounge, while more than adequate, could be improved to match other Starwood properties in Asia. Good recognition of Starwood Platinum status. Some staff reconginzed us even though our last visit was a few years ago. Staff at breakfast buffet and the Towers seemed to know us after only one day into our stay!

Rated 5 out of 5 by BillRMD SHORT BUT EXCELLENT STAY
My wife and I have stayed at this property on several occasions over the years, and we are always happy to return! We used a "confirmed" Platinum suite upgrade, and were confirmed (this particular suite had no view, but we recognize that this sometimes happens in a city property with a wide range of accommodations and dense urban building construction). The suite was comfortable, and we very much appreciated the welcome amenity. Breakfast in the Cafe - a great Platinum benefit! - is superb. The Platinum lounge, though certainly not as luxurious as the Towers Lounge, was more than adequate. The lounge attendant, Sunnie, was professional and accommodating. We were amazed when, shortly after checkin, a knock at the door revealed a member of the housekeeping team (sorry, I do not recall her name) who presented us with a bag containing a few items we had inadvertently left in a prior accommodation the week earlier - WOW!! And, Sharon Lo at Reception is among the most friendly, delightful and professional members of a hotel staff we have EVER encountered!! She was most apologetic that our suite was not immediately available for checkin, provided us with a key to the Platinum lounge and, when the room was ready, personally appeared in the lounge to deliver our keys to us. You should be proud to serve on a team with such professionals!

Rated 4 out of 5 by AA83 Pool closed for maintenance
It's disappointing that the rooftop pool is closed for maintenance. Had originally set aside some time for a dip in the pool but the plan has to be shelved. Was given an alternative location for pool usage but as it was in a different building, I find it too troublesome to make the trip there.

my 3rd stay at Sheraton was better than expective. Staff at front desk - check in n check out was excellent. Both rooms were upgraded to excellent harbour view and staff accommodated my request and set us up in a luxurious suite with a view, as soon as one was available.
excellent service at the cafe whenever we had buffet breakfast, always responsive to our requests

Rated 5 out of 5 by Explore88 Great Hotel in a Great City
We have not been back to the Sheraton Hong Kong for over six years, so our return trip for New Years Eve was highly anticipated. We stayed at the Sheraton Towers and the service and attention to our every need was met with a great attitude and smile. The location cannot be any better, right on Nathan Road and minutes from the major train stations and shopping Malls. Travelling to Hong Kong at New Years Eve you would expect crowds and high activity, however the Sheraton was a sanctuary in that entire environment. There was a spectacular harbor view from our room and the Tower Club floor on New Year’s Eve.
Best advice, if your costs can extend then stay at the Towers in a harbor view room. Sheraton Hong Kong keep up the exceptional experience you convey to your guests.

Rated 1 out of 5 by mmarcus Do not stay if you are SPG Platinum you will hate it
I am Platinum for life with SPG and have ambassador status which means that they assign an ambassador to my account to call the hotels in advance to make sure that everything about my stay is seamless.
My ambassador convinced me to stay here based on the fact that she had been told the hotel had just been renovated. Since it was my honeymoon ,I wanted it to be perfect and I took her advice. What a huge disappointment. Nothing about my suite had been renovated in the last 5 years!
I booked and paid for a suite with a harbor view ,they forgot to tell me that they are building a 50 story building between the view and the harbor !
If they had they given me the room across the hall ,I would have an unobstructed view ,but they didn't. after all it was only my honeymoon, in fact ,the hotel did nothing for the occasion ! Since I had just spent a fortune on my wedding at one of their hotels ,I would have expected more!
The gym is the smallest and worst gym of any major hotel I have ever stayed at anywhere in the world!!!!!!!
The service was terrible the staff was awful ,I would never stay at this hotel again!

Rated 3 out of 5 by jack Aging Sheraton with middling service and sad Platinum lounge
We stayed at this Sheraton for two nights in December 2014 in a suite on the 9th floor. While we enjoyed the extra space of the suite, it was very small for a suite - we have stayed in rooms (vs suites) of equal size. While we had a partial harbor view, the view was somewhat obstructed by the building across the street and the Sheraton building itself. Despite platinum status, the hotel claimed that the Tower rooms on the three top floors were off limits for upgrades, saying that Tower rooms were operated as a separate hotel. With this refusal of Tower room access came the refusal to access the Tower lounge. We were instead directed to a "dedicated Platinum lounge", which essentially consists of 4 separate rooms with convenience store food and a soda machine, a carpet and furniture straight from the eighties, and not even water bottles available. Overall, the furnishings and amenities in the hotel are average (seems to be an older property that received a recent refresh). While the staff at the Sheraton front desk and housekeeping were courteous, we found the Cafe staff to be lacking, often forgetting to bring orders (waiting 15 minutes foe a cappuccino). On a positive note, the gym is decent and the hotel location is excellent. Overall it's hard to recommend this hotel given the price they charge and with so many better options with similar pricing nearby.
