- Weekend in Taipei: Conclusion
We were excited to have the chance to stay at the Grand Hyatt Taipei, as we’ve enjoyed many of the other Grand Hyatt properties across Asia, like the Grand Hyatt Tokyo and Grand Hyatt Singapore. But I have to say, this hotel was just a little different.
Arriving at the Grand Hyatt Taipei
The lobby was airy and very open.
Of course, we were whisked up to the Grand Club for check-in.
Unfortunately, our room wasn’t ready — we had arrived into Taipei at 6am, and made good time, so it was not even 9am when we had gotten to the hotel. So we were invited to enjoy breakfast in the lounge. This wasn’t ideal, but, it was certainly comfortable.
Breakfast at the Grand Hyatt Taipei’s Grand Club
The spread was reasonable – perhaps not as exhaustive as some hotels, but certainly more than sufficient.
The Room at the Grand Hyatt Taipei
When we finally got to the room–after a short breakfast–we were happy to the space.
There was a wall separating the sitting area and the bedroom.
There was a nice sized television too.
The bathroom was well adorned as well.
Overall, we found the room to be comfortable, and more than sufficient for our two night stay in Taipei.
Evening Drinks at the Grand Club
One thing that we tend to enjoy, is spending our evenings at the Grand Club. I realize that we’re missing out on some of the nightlight, but it always ends up being a relaxing environment to talk about the day, plan for the next day, and catch up on e-mail (a necessary evil).
Overall, the hotel was more than satisfactory. I thought the Grand Club was great, although as I went through my photos, I missed the little kitchen area that they would prepare omelettes in the morning and warm dishes in the evening. The location wasn’t perfect, its in the business district, but, I really found the city to be walkable, and certainly hospitable, so the location was more than fine. The hotel had all the amenities you’d expect for either a vacation or a business trip.
