Arrival/Check-In: The Regal Airport Hotel is perfectly situated for any traveler looking for a place to rest before connecting to other airports in Asia or before heading into the bustling city of Hong Kong. My stay at the Regal was for two nights, one week apart. The first was upon arrival in Asia, after a flight, and the second was before my early-morning flight home, six days and two countries later. Its location is right outside the main passenger terminal and a five-minute walk through an enclosed breezeway. The main lobby, a large open space, houses restaurants, shops and an entertainment center. The front desk was busy, but I checked in in less than 10 minutes and was directed to the executive club floor, where guests staying in club-access rooms can also check in.
Guest Quarters: My Executive Club room, located near the main club lounge, proved very convenient. As I was unpacking my clothes, I noticed a few small insects in the room and alerted the staff. I was quickly ushered into the lounge, offered Champagne, and the general manager and club staff switched my room and also unpacked my clothes — overall they were gracious, apologetic and helpful.
My spacious new room had cream carpeting and walls covered in a modern pattern with dark wood accents. In the main hallway the closet had floor-to-ceiling, sliding mirrored doors, which I prefer. Just beyond was a fully stocked minibar. The bathroom had black-and-white marbled and tiled accents, with a single black vanity with lots of counter space and excellent lighting. A glass-enclosed shower/tub combo completed the room. The main part of the room was furnished with a comfortable queen-sized bed sitting across from a large TV that carried the major U.S. news channels in English. The living room area included a cream leather couch and coffee table; however, I worked at the large desk with multiple universal outlets.
Services/Amenities: I would highly recommend the newly renovated executive floor lounge for any guests. Large windows flood the area with light and overlook the runway and out to the South China Sea and its many ships. I loved the view while enjoying a breakfast of dim sum and a chef-operated omelet station. The lounge concierge was also friendly and helpful, helping to arrange a taxi into the city so it was waiting for me downstairs and already cued to my next destination. Executive-floor travelers also get free WiFi, free pressing of clothes per stay and discounts at the OM Spa.
The OM Spa, on the third floor, offers an extensive massage menu, from short neck massages to help with jet lag to full spa treatments; men’s and women’s steam rooms, saunas and beauty service; and an outdoor gym as well as a well-equipped, 24-hour gym. I took advantage of my Sunday morning off and got a 60-minute, full-body massage with enriched oils by a friendly masseuse. Highly recommended!
◆ Located at the airport, the Regal is convenient for quick stopovers or a place to unwind before a flight.
◆ A massage at the OM Spa was perfect after a 15-hour flight.
◆ The Executive Club lounge served great dim sum and even better views of the runway and South China Sea.

Since the company’s beginnings in 2017, they have pushed the boundaries of traditional Japanese machiya by repositioning and giving them a new identity in the modern world. Machiya are traditional Japanese wooden townhouses popular with Kyoto merchants and craftspeople until just before World War II. Because Kyoto was not bombed during the war, many fine machiya survived to the present day.
