Thank you...what do you mean by typical?
HKI feels like a busy city without too much Asian flare.

I plan on staying in Kowloon next shabbat and booked at the Hyatt regency. Just noticed now that there might be a slight issue with the stairs there. Anyone been there? Is it feasible or should we just go with the Sheraton? Thanks!
There's a mall on the bottom floors with no stair access. Ask your LOR about using the elevators on Shabbat.
