Grand Hyatt Hotel Hong Kong
Review: Grand Hyatt Hong Kong
Hong Kong is my favorite city in the world, and over the years I’ve visited it dozens of times. There’s something about the vibe of the city that energizes me, unlike anywhere else I’ve traveled to.
In Hong Kong I tend to have a few hotels I go back to every time. Over the years I’ve reviewed quite a few, including the following:
This time around I decided to stay at the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, which is objectively the best Hyatt property in Hong Kong. While Grand Hyatts are of varying quality, this is considered to be one of the flagship international Grand Hyatt properties, and the prices reflect that — rates are consistently ~$400+ per night.
The Grand Hyatt Hong Kong is a Category 6 Gold Passport property, making a free night redemption 25, 000 points per night.
Category 6 Points + Cash redemptions are among my favorite values, especially in relation to the cost of an outright points stay. Keep in mind that Points + Cash bookings qualify for stay credits and Diamond Suite Upgrade Awards. While I didn’t redeem a suite upgrade in this case, I did like getting a stay credit and having it qualify towards Hyatt’s first quarter promotion.
Anyway, I apologize in advance that this review won’t be that detailed, since I literally got to the hotel at night, ended up going out pretty late, slept for four hours, had a busy morning, and then rushed to the airport. So I didn’t have a chance to check out the pool, gym, etc.
The Grand Hyatt is located on Hong Kong Island (as opposed to the Hyatt Regency in Kowloon, which is across Victoria Harbor), right along the waterfront.
As I entered the lobby I immediately could see why this would be considered one of Grand Hyatt’s flagship international properties, given that the lobby was… grand!
It was one of the most gorgeous and elegant Hyatt lobbies I’ve seen.

The check-in process was efficient, and within minutes I was given keys to my Grand Harbour King Room. I was also given a sheet explaining the features of the Grand Club, which I had access to thanks to my Diamond status.
I took the elevator up to the 25th floor, where my room was located.

I was assigned room 2513, which was located down the hallway and on the right.

The room itself was a great size for a “standard” hotel room in Hong Kong. And while the public facilities feel very in line with what you’d expect from the Grand Hyatt brand, the rooms feel very Park Hyatt-like.
Once I entered the room, the bathroom was located to the right and luggage storage and a closet were located to the left.
