It was my 4th time stay at Tokyo Hyatt Regency. First time I have no gold passport status. So I don't get any benefits. This time I check in as Diamond member and totally treated differently. The hotel location is at Shinjuku, 5 mins hotel free shuttle or 15 mins walk to Shinjiku. Although it's not right in the middle, hotel provides free shuttle bus right in front of Okadyo shopping mall (right outside Lacoste) every 20 mins. Journey only take 5 mins from/to hotel. The mini bus always arrive on time. Make sure you get there 5 mins early. There are space for your luggage inside the bus.
If you arrive at Narita (USD 30) or Henada (USD12) airport. I would suggest you take the direct airport luminous bus to Hyatt Regency Tokyo because it's very easy door to door. Save your time up and down on the train and you don't need to change taxi or hotel bus at Shinjuki later.
Hyatt Regency Tokyo is a traditional mix of Western and asian style hotel. With big lobby, high ceiling, not super fancy but very clean, spacious cosy and the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Once you arrive the hotel, the staff would help out with your luggages. For gold passport diamond member may check in on Level 9 club reception.
I stayed in the Club King (newly renovated) as well as I have used the Gold passport upgrade certificate to Suites this time. The club room level are located between 4th and 9th floor. Club King, and Club deluxe king are pretty similar design. They remind me of Grand Hyatt Tokyo in Roponging. Use of dark brown wood, cosy lighting and earthy feeling. I quite like it. Although the size is not as big as grand hyatt room but good enough for couple or single traveller. Hotel provide wifi connector, make sure you call housekeeper to set up for you. Then you can connect your phone, ipad and mac. The window has electric blind and totally block the light. I can sleep so well at night!
As for Suites, I have used my diamond upgrade certificate. My room was located on level 4, it is very spacious for a Japanese hotel room. Entrance has an extra door to keep your room super quiet. Lot of space for your cloths, luggage and with a Japanese iron board. Living room with a big coffee table, sofa for 4. Spacious work area, with lot of storage, mini bar, and safe box hidden inside the draw. For wifi, housekeeper will set it up for you. You may need to bring an international adopter for your computer or phone charger. However, you can always ask housekeeper to send you one. As for gold passport diamond, I have received welcome Japanese fresh fruit everyday. They were very delicious. Housekeeper is friendly and completely clean up the room nicely. I am very impressed. The window has electric curtain can totally block the light from outside. There were two tv, one for the bedroom and big one for the living room. You can also hear the TV inside your bathroom. Toilet and bathroom are in one room. Very spacious and bright but with two step so make sure you watch out when you go at night. The toilet seat is heated with spray. Shower and bath are separated. Good for 4 people standing together.
Breakfast was at the club lounge for gold passport members. Food choice were not bad. Each morning there was different style of foods. Egg, ham, bacon, oatmeal, yogurt, some japanese pickles, fresh cut fruit like melon, grapes, grapefruits, banana, apple, orange, cheery tomatoes, lot of different kind of bread and tarts, Oj, tomatoes juice, grapfruit juice, apple juice, tea, coffee, soft drink, mineral water, and sparkling water. The view are quite nice facing to a park and skyline.
During afternoon from 5-7pm you can enjoy happy hour at the lounge. The food they offer can feed me as a dinner. Free champagne, beers, wine, soft drink, lot of little Japanese food, chicken balls, dumplings, tea coffee, homemade cookies, desert and much more. I would suggest you should not miss out this happy hour. Perhaps after a long day walk or sightseeing, make sure you return between 5-7pm to enjoy this. They serve different types of food each day.
The spa and pool is located on the top floor 28. It's quite nice to swim up there (cap provided) and you can soak yourself into the hot jazcuuize if you have a sore feet. There is a red light section for you to rest down and dry up your body. View are pretty nice 270 degree to check out the skyscraper of tokyo. Once you arrive, there are six open shower heads around you to clean up your body before you walk in. Pretty awesome. The room is heated and water temperature are warm enough and you don't need to worry about too cold.
Lastly, many of you may feel hungry at night. There are 7-11 below the hotel, a couple of dining places, bar and a mini supermarket. It is actually good for such location. As I was jet lag usually after return from sightseeing or shopping around 6-9pm. I feel lazy and tied to go to Shinjuku again when I wake up. so there are some place I can get food downstair. Pretty convenience.
