Guest rooms at Kowloon Shangri-La offer a range of amenities and all the modern conveniences you’d expect in a major luxury hotel. The décor is fairly straightforward. A beige and light brown color palette dominates many of the rooms. Deluxe Harbour View rooms feature a king sized bed, writing desk that turns into a television console, and small sitting area with patterned red club chairs and an ottoman. All rooms are bright, thanks to floor-to-ceiling bay windows that offer dazzling views of the city center or, better yet, Victoria Harbour, and what’s cool about the curtains is that as soon as you insert your keycard into the front door's power slot, they will open like magic. A cherry wood curved wall inlaid with square mirrors sets the stage for the bar area, which holds glassware on shelves, an electric kettle and complimentary bottled water (the wine, alas, you must pay for, as with everything in the mini-bar tucked below). A rectangular print of Gerbera daisies in a neutral color scheme hangs above the brown leather headboard, while nightstands on either side of the bed rest below silver sconce lamps. A spacious closet in the hallway connecting the bedroom to the bathroom allows you to store all your garments, and is also where you’ll find extra pillows and blankets. The rooms are spacious — at least by Hong Kong standards — beginning at about 450 square feet. Though with so much dining, shopping and culture to explore in the magnificent environs, we doubt you’ll be spending much time in your room at all.
