Trip Report: Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tui

The Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tui is a Five Star hotel located in the Kowloon district of Hong Kong.  This was my home while in Hong Kong during my recent march trip to asia. The hotel occupies the 3 through 24 floors of the 64 story tower.  This location is a great choice for sightseeing and exploring the rest of Hong Kong as Dining, Shopping, and the MTR subway are all very close by.

The added advantage of being on the Kowloon side of the Hong Kong harbor, is that the view of City Skyline are remarkable both day and night.

I was fortunate to be able to secure an Suite Upgrade using one of the four upgrade I’m given each year as a Diamond Level member of the Hyatt Loyalty Program.  Opening to the door to suite reveals a very nice entry hallway.

Turn the corner to the living room you first notice the curvature of the room that follows the curved contour of the far edge of the building.  This resulted in windows arranged in kinda of Ships Bridge configuration. The main disappointment with this Harborview room is that the windows were quite dirty and detracted from the millions dollar views.  The other disappointment was that having just come from the Park Hyatt in Shanghai, I was looking forward to staying in a really tall hotel, not realizing the Hyatt occupies the lower floor of the building.  The room however, was very serviceable and strangely felt similar to the Junior suite during my previous stay at the Sheraton Hong Kong which is just down the street.  Something about the lighting and woodgrain seems oddly familiar with the Sheraton where I had stayed during my previous two visit to Hong Kong.

I thoroughly enjoyed lounging on the sofa, sleeping in the comfortable bed, and bathing in the tub.  This was a very solid room with good space in a town where square feet are at a premium.

The hotel also had a very good Regency Club Lounge that serve breakfast along with evening drink/appetizers.

Although it wasn’t the most elaborate buffet selection I’ve seen in a hotel lounge,  it was very good.  Hot breakfast food items were available on request from the servers and rotated daily.

The one item I had intended to sample here was the very popular Buffet restaurant that serves Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner with several different food stations/cuisines.  Unlike in the US where hotel restaurant are often very lackluster and only there as a convenience to quests, it was clear that the locals frequented the restaurant in this hotel. If you plan to dine at this hotel’s restaurants it might be worth making a reservation.

I did enjoy my stay at the Hyatt Tsim Sha Tui and would recommend it as a very convenient and comfortable hotel for your next trip to Hong Kong.
