Disney Hollywood Hotel, Hong Kong
Besides, if you stay for the fireworks and Hong Kong Disneyland’s latest Paint The Night Parade at night, you don’t need to fight with the crowds for a place in the train traveling back all over the city to your accommodation.
However, if all you want is only to have a quick look of Disneyland and hurry back to downtown area, you may consider to stay in other hotels in Hong Kong. You can read my previous review about “Where Is The Best Place to Stay in Hong Kong” to find out better hotel options.
Hong Kong Disneyland has two hotels for the moment: Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Hollywood Hotel. They are both located in the close vicinity of Hong Kong Disneyland. It is a bit confusing to decide which one you should choose. A new hotel with 750 rooms is planned for 2017. I will discuss about that next time.
Apparently location is the first priority of choosing Disney hotels. Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and Disney’s Hollywood Hotel are both located near the main entrance of Disneyland. Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel is a little bit closer to the entrance than Disney Hollywood Hotel (see the map below).
Both hotels provide 24-hour free shuttle bus service, which leave every 10-20min (from 6:00am to 1:00am). Between 1:00am till 6:00am, hotels will send out shuttle bus on request (you can call 35105000 asking for service during this period).
Shuttle bus will start from Disneyland Hotel and stop by Hollywood Hotel on the way (the blue line on the map). However, since all the shuttle buses are big coaches, you don’t need to worry if you stay in Hollywood Hotel the buses will be full. Or you easily can walk the few minutes to the entrance yourself what is a nice stroll if it is not too hot and humid.
Hotel Theme and Style
Many people think Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel is definitely better since it is a 5-star hotel but Disney’s Hollywood Hotel is a 4-star hotel. I personally don’t feel much difference on service between these two hotels. To me, it all depends on what your princess fantasy or Disneyland dream is about.
The Victorian themed Disneyland Hotel is a 5-star hotel and the theme park’s flagship hotel with about 400 rooms spanning over 6 floors. It looks like a huge palace and fulfills the dream of fairy tale lovers.
Not only the outside, but also everything inside of the hotel brings you back to early 1900s. The elegant Victorian style interior and decorations made me feel like walking into an European castle.
A huge chandelier is hanging on the 4-floor high ceiling and stairs are winded up to the 4th floor. Since the Disney movie “Frozen” became extremely popular among girls, you can see kids standing on the stairs and singing “Let It Go”.
If you are lucky, you may meet some of those princesses in the lobby and signing names for the fans.
Cinderella Ball Room, Sleeping Beauty Rom, Snow White Room, Prince Charming Meeting Room ! Don’t you feel like dropping into a complete fairy tale ?
The Victorian princess style even shows in the toilet.
Don’t miss the most popular photo spots – the Mickey and Minnie statues. You can find their statues in Hollywood Hotel as well.
