Hotel Review: Hongkong Skycity Marriott Hotel

I love hotels. I keep telling myself, when I grow up I want to build a hotel of my own. LOL!

I studied Hotel Administration when I was in college. And later on worked in Sheraton Fullmoon Maldives in Maldives. I may have left the industry but I am still in love with hotels. Whenever I book a hotel for our travel, it always takes a long time for me decide because I research first and make sure we stay in the "best" possible hotel around that area.

I remember I had a little difficulty choosing our hotel in Hongkong back in 2010. It was our first time in Hongkong and I wanted a nice place, a convenient one and of course one the suits our budget.

I chose Hongkong Skycity Marriott Hotel and I am glad I did. It's near the airport (just a free shuttle away) and close to Hongkong Disneyland (a free shuttle away too courtesy of the hotel), the main point of that trip.

One factor that I also consider when checking out hotel rooms are the linens. I don't want any flowery sheets. I just want a simple and plain white linens on the bed.

On our second visit to Hongkong, we stayed in Shangrila Kowloon. Two different brands but both very nice hotels.

What's your favorite hotel in Hongkong?
