In our last trip to Hong Kong, my family first checked in Eaton Hotel in Kowloon. This hotel is famous primarily because it is situated on Nathan Road very close to the Jade and Mongkok Market. It brought back a flood of memories as this was also our hotel when we first visited Hong Kong in my teenage years. I return as mother of two children and I couldn’t be happier to bring my own kids this time around.
As a Mom, I love it when kids get special treatment. Hotels that extend extra goods and services obviously get extra cookie points!
Trivia: My daughter likes to remove the paper from the crayons and will give me about 30 minutes of peace at a time. (I know, it’s funny!).
It was Mother’s Day weekend so even I got a special treat upon check-in!
It is nice to see that they have newly renovated rooms, like the Smart Rooms which I would totally choose to stay in (if traveling without the kids!). Ergonomically designed, the Smart Room of the Eaton Hotel mixes modern style with maximum functionality.
I love the open lay out which reminds me so much of Hotel Des Arts, our hotel in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam a few months back.
Another new room option is the Family Room (where we stayed) which features two-bedroom and a bathroom with a walk-in shower. The parent’s room is equipped with a large queen sized bed while the second bedroom has two full sized bunk beds and a full size single sofa bed. These rooms can comfortably accommodate two adults and 2 to 3 children (or a nanny!). About the bunkbeds- Oh, what joy it brought the kiddos for it was their first time to sleep in such!
Amazingly, the bunk bed completely vanishes into the wall for lots of playtime space!

The view each time we would go down from our room 🙂 Trippy!
For stressed out parents needing an outlet of energy. A modern gym with state-of-the-art equipment is open 24 hours a day. Trained, professional instructors are also available to help direct and support your workout. The heated rooftop swimming pool is open daily from 7am-11pm.

The Eaton Hotel “is part of an environmental conscious and committed management company based in Hong Kong. It has actively introduced environmental and social performance initiatives to reduce overall resource consumption whilst promoting efficiency and behavioral change amongst colleagues, suppliers, guests and clients.” Bravo!
They’ve also stopped giving water in plastic bottles and started using reusable glass containers for every room. Less carbon footprint, my kinda thing! Kudos on that, Eaton Hotel Hong Kong!
Here is a video of my parents (the super cool grandparents of my little globetrotters) doing the complimentary Tai Chi class at the deck the next morning.
Of course, I gave it a try myself with baby in arms! Oh, the multi-taking mama! I’m sure many of you can relate 🙂
If you are heading to Hong Kong with children for a shopping spree, consider Eaton Hotel for its location and convenience.
