Hyatt Hotel Hong Kong
Review: Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, Tsim Sha Tsui
While I’ve been to Hong Kong a bunch of times and have tried out many different hotels (including the Ritz Carlton Hong Kong, Conrad Hong Kong, Hyatt Regency Hong Kong Sha Tin, InterContinental Grand Stanford Hong Kong, InterContinental Hong Kong, Marriott SkyCity Hong Kong), I hadn’t yet stayed at the Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui.
While the Grand Hyatt is probably objectively better, it’s also exponentially more expensive. The Hyatt Regency paid rate was quite reasonable for my dates, at ~$200USD per night. It’s a Category 4 Gold Passport property, making a free night redemption 15, 000 points per night. That’s actually a pretty good deal since rates at this hotel can often be 0+ per night, but given the good rate I got, it didn’t seem worthwhile.
Anyway, upon landing we took a taxi to the hotel. In Hong Kong, generally if I’m traveling with someone I’ll take a taxi, while if I’m traveling alone I’ll take the Airport Express. That’s because two tickets on the Airport Express are roughly the same cost as a taxi, and they don’t require a transfer at Kowloon station.

Since the Hyatt Regency is literally just off a side street in Kowloon, there’s an underground driveway for those arriving by car. Upon arrival we were welcomed by the bellmen and escorted to the third floor lobby.
If you’re arriving by foot, there’s a side entrance to the hotel on the street level, where there’s also a mini-lobby.

There’s one set of elevators that takes you between the two entrances and the third floor lobby, and then a separate elevator that takes you between the third floor lobby and the guest rooms.

The Hyatt Regency’s lobby was simultaneously grand and bland, and there was no queue at check-in.

The associate that checked me in was courteous, and as soon as he saw I was a Diamond member he explained that I could check-in at the Regency Club, though I preferred just getting checked in as quickly as possible and then going to my room. He was extremely thorough, and in addition to giving me a sheet with the Regency Club information, he went over every bullet point with me, as if it was an SAT prep course.
I was assigned room 2311, a Club Harbour View King Room.

Once off the elevator I turned right, and my room was the first one past the Regency Club. Can’t beat being right next to the Regency Club!

The room was a good size for a standard room in Hong Kong. There was an entryway with the bathroom to the left, and then the hallway led into the rest of the room.

The room featured a comfortable king size bed, a chair with ottoman by the window, a desk, and a flat screen TV.

The room had a sliding door between the bathroom and the rest of the room, which made it feel a bit bigger.
There were a couple of conveniently located plugs near the desk, as well as a rolling chair and lamp.
