Again, I cannot add too much to the existing review. Most of what recent reviews said is pretty much what we experienced. It is a nice hotel in a good location but the rooms, especially the carpets, tend to be pass their prime.
Location: Right across from the 101 building - if you take the foot bridge outside the hotel you will end up right around the Zegna store in the 101 building on 2nd floor. There is a great food court in the bottom floor, and it has a branch of the famous Din Tai Fung. City Hall metro stop is around 15 minutes walk away, as people have stated. With the good metro system, hotel is in good location. If you choose to take the bus to/from the airport, the stop is outside the back of the hotel.
Service: The services were professional. Concierge was knowledgeable. Nothing especially memorable, good or bad.
Food: The breakfast buffet was very nice. There were a good selection of Taiwanese fares, dim sum, congee, stir-fries, etc., and the western pastries were actually very good. There was a conference and it was a bit hectic, but once the wave was over, it was nice. The breakfast up at the club lounge is an abbreviated version of the buffet downstairs. Their Japanese restaurant is supposed to be very good but we did not try.
Gym/Pool: The gym and the general spa area is very good. The equipment is comprehensive and new, but it does get crowded in the morning when everyone was there (probably due to the conference in the hotel). The locker room area has a really nice looking sauna/jacuzzi area. It was one of the nicer hotel spa that is free to guests. The pool looks very nice, but it was raining so we did not use.
Room: The junior suite room was a good size, but due to the old carpet, it just look very dated. However, it was clean and the layout was nice. Once Hyatt gets to refresh the rooms to match with the lobby and spa, it should be a much nicer experience.
