Hong Kong - help please.

Jump to last reply

Looking at re-visiting Hong Kong where I used to work 35 years ago, but having trouble selecting a hotel.

Thinking about the Habor Plaza Hong Kong (Kowloon side) or the Excelsior (Island side).

Obviously things have changed since I was working in Causeway Bay for "The Star" newspaper as a journalist in 1973, and I guess even the old "New American", "The Indonesian" and "Cafe D'Amigo" restaurants have closed! And my "watering hole" after work used to be the plush "Lee Gardens Hotel" though I can't find any mention of it on Google or Yahoo.

I also remember an isolated and old but very atmospheric hotel built on the side of a hill in the New Territories overlooking Hong Kong, and if any Fodorites can refresh my memory on the name, that would be great.

Feedback about the two hotels I'm looking at would be appreciated, as well as alternatives. But I must have an uninterrupted view of the harbor where I stay!
