Location: Great location that's within walking distance to many of Taipei's touristy sites. Perfect spot for nightlife as you are basically close to all the Xinyi bars and clubs. MRT is 5 minute walk from the side entrance that will basically take you anywhere. TPE airport limo delivers you right to the front door.
Service: Very friendly as to be expected. We also received some extra attention as Hyatt Diamond. However, we had a much more enjoyable experience at the W down the street. Hyatt definitely feels more like a business hotel than a luxury hotel.
Room and hotel: Half the hotel (101 side) is still under renovation so they were fairly packed especially since they are right next to the Expo center which always has something going on. You can really tell it's an aging hotel by the lobby and the elevators. As Hyatt Diamond we were expecting the upgraded Premier room but was told at check in it would be an additional 2000NT/per night for the Premier, or 4000NT/per night for the Suite for us. Both were reasonable prices in terms of the value for the money, not sure if this is extended to non-Diamonds.
Amenities: Club lounge was good, much better than anything you'll find stateside. Breakfast, dinner and beverages can basically be covered if you intend to stay within the hotel. Breakfast usually consist of typical American dishes, eggs, bacon, pastries, etc. There was also a congee station. However, this being Taipei, you are much better off wondering down the street and finding more authentic and delicious dishes. Only complaint about the club lounge would be the abyss of international businessmen taking free reign over the alcohol, but I expected that going into it. Spa, heated pool and gym on the 5th floor is convenient, we were able to experience it all during this stay.
Final verdict for the hotel: I give it a 6.5/10. As Hyatt Diamond I just expected more. This property is viewed by many Taiwanese as the one of the best luxury hotels in Taipei. I beg to differ. Grant Hyatt Taipei is really more of a business hotel in luxury guise, about a 50/50 split in terms of vacationers and those there for business. For the money/points, I could've stayed at W or LM and gotten the same service experience in a more plush setting.
