I wanted to try out different Starwood Hotels in Hong Kong and since I stayed at the W Hong Kong, I was torn between choosing the Sheraton Hong Kong and the Le Meridien Cyberport. I’ve heard from many people that the Le Meridien Cyberport on Hong Kong Island should be avoided since it’s very far from everything. Since the Sheraton was in Kowloon and I’ve already stayed at the W Hong Kong (also located in Kowloon), I decided to book the Le Meridien Cyberport hotel for 10,000 Starpoints on a free night award redemption since the hotel was going for $230 USD+ tax.

I took a 15 minute cab ride to the Le Meridien Cyberport hotel from the IFC mall in Central which was approximately $15 USD. For your information, an hourly complimentary hotel shuttle bus is also available between Le Méridien Cyberport and Hong Kong Station in Central. Travel time is approximately 30 minutes and the bus stop is located at platform level of Hong Kong Station.
When I entered the lobby area, I was greeted with an enormous amount of window light with hip and modern décor.
The front desk agent thanked me for being a Platinum member and advised me that I was upgraded to an Oceanfront Deluxe Suite from a standard Smart Room. I had checked on the SPG app a day before and saw that they had pre-upgraded me to the suite which was very proactive from the hotel.
She also presented me with a personalized letter stating the Platinum benefits of staying at the Le Meridien Cyberport hotel such as complimentary buffet breakfast in Prompt (4th Floor 6:30am – 10:30am), complimentary in-room internet access, complimentary selected drinks and food throughout the day according to opening hours at PSI & Podium (4th Floor 4pm-11:30pm) (max 2 persons). The menu will be provided in the bar. Addition benefits include complimentary shoe shining service (2 pairs) or pressing for suit (2 pieces), 30% discount enjoyment in our restaurants, 50% discount on overnight parking, and 20% discount Business Service & Facilities.
Since I was recently dressed up for my friend’s wedding in Taipei, I took the hotel up on the offer of complimentary pressing for a suit (2 pieces). The front desk agent immediately called someone to take my suit in the lobby and told me that it would be ready in four hours.
Afterwards, I went up to my room to drop off my belongings before exploring Hong Kong Island. Here’s a video of my Oceanfront Deluxe Suite at the Le Meridien Cyberport hotel:
The Oceanfront Deluxe Suite living room consisted of an L-shaped sofa, TV, executive desk, and a half bathroom.
The separate bedroom area contained a King size bed with a flat screen TV.
The bathroom had a single basin sink with the usual Le Meridien Cinq Mondes bath amenities and a bathtub.
The most unusual part about the room was the open floor plan bathroom layout where you can see your bed from the bathtub. I thought open floor plan bathroom layout only existed in Latin America where I’ve experienced this at the W Mexico City, Sheraton Sao Paulo WTC, and the W Santiago hotel.
The view from the room was overlooking the South China Sea and a nearby mall. As you can see, it was a cold and gloomy day in Hong Kong.
I was in a hurry to explore Hong Kong Island as much as possible, so I headed downstairs to catch the hourly complimentary shuttle to Hong Kong MTR station. Here’s a card with the shuttle timetables from the Le Meridien Cyberport Hotel to Hong Kong Station and vice versa).
I was unable to partake in the evening spread and breakfast because I was out exploring late and had an early flight the next morning.
Even though I wasn’t able to partake in the generous evening appetizers and drinks which run all night from 4pm-11:30pm for Platinum guests, I was enjoyed my stay at the Le Meridien Cyberport. I love how the hotel runs a complimentary shuttle and the Platinum recognition was on point. It’s also very easy to get to the airport because In-town check in is available on Hong Kong Island (Hong Kong MTR Station inside the IFC Mall).
