If youíd rather use straight points instead of CSR, look into the Intercontinental Grand Stanford. Itís probably the closest one that is also shabbos friendly (Hyatt Regency is not)   
Just not gonna be next door like Shangri la.

That works too, I thought you wanted the closest.
On Gmaps IC Grand Stanford is a 6 min walk to KZ & Sheraton is a 10 min walk.

Also anyone have the contact info of the restaurant and chabad of kz for shabbos reservations ?
Chabad & KZ are two separate things.

KZ is Sephardi and has a restaurant (Mul Hayam) + shabbos meals.
https://www.kehilat-zion.org

There is a Chabad in Kowloon that has shabbos meals,donít think you meant that but here you go.

Mul Hayam probably has a meatless menu this week preceding Tisha B'Av, and the JCC probably won't have a BBQ this Sunday.
