I'm thinking of booking the W Kowloon for Thursday and Shangri-la or Sheraton for Fri-Sat. I'll need a hotel for a couple more nights after so I was thinking to stay on HKI, what hotel/s should I book?
points or cash?
No budget?


Any options?

Points but I have CSR so I can book anything that's reasonable.

All the markets there are fun to go, & exciting to bargain down to a fraction of the asking price, but whatever we bought wasn't wort a penny more then what we paid. it's all garbage stuff.

If you have a visa to enter mainland China itís a 45 minute subway ride from KZ in Hong Hong to the Luohu shopping mall in Shenzhen which has bargains on many different items; but you must always bargain down the price.

If I was going to book either the W or the Ritz for one night, which would you recommend? I know the W is in Kowloon and the Ritz is on HKI but assuming I'm spending some time on each anyway and I'm only going to book one or the other, which would you book?

The Ritz is in Kowloon along with the W.

Did you mean the JW which is on HKI?

Hmm, you're right, I just looked, not sure why I had it in my mind that it was on HKI. Even better now, I'd rather spend more time in Kowloon, any preference for one hotel over the other?

Doubt many have stayed in both.

We enjoyed the W a lot.

W

also the W is not your normal Pink and purple vibe

Also I opt for Outdoor pool over indoor pool
