The new Hyatt’s like the old Hyatt but it’s a better Hyatt.

The Hyatt Regency has long been a landmark in Tsim Sha Tsui – it just happens to have moved from its original spot in Nathan Road (where it opened in 1969) to its current home in a giant (even by local standards) elliptical tower.

Location

What used to be slightly dingy backstreets got a swift makeover with the hotel’s new opening in 2009. There’s direct access to the MTR, via an art-themed mall, while a brace of (rather good) museums is just up the street.

 

Bedrooms

Very smart: the 381 rooms and suites are contemporary yet comfortable, with rich tones of burgundy and grey, textured wallpaper, leather-style headboards and velour armchairs and ottomans. Black and white images of Hong Kong add a nice touch.

 

Public areas

Given that it’s some way above ground level, the lobby has a spacious and calm feel to it. The ninth-floor Sky Garden provides a pleasant oasis.

 

Eating and drinking

Several of the old Hyatt’s outlets were resurrected here, including the Chin Chin bar (plus outdoor terrace), Hugo’s (European) restaurant and The Chinese Restaurant. Veritable stalwarts, they’ve been given a modern twist, and are as enduringly popular as ever.

 

Leisure facilities

Outdoor pool and indoor fitness centre, both tip-top.

 

Service

Nigh perfect, in that it’s there when you want it, and not when you don’t.

 

Who stays there

North Americans familiar with the brand, old Hong Kong hands on a nostalgia kick, and a sizeable business segment.

 

Price advice

Lots of rooms to fill, lots of hotels in the immediate vicinity. Strike a good bargain.
