“Top-Notch Property in the Heart of Beijing”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

The Park Hyatt Beijing impresses on all levels. The design of the hotel is modern, yet comfortable.
PROS:
*Great Location- near enough to Tiananmen, Temple of Heaven, Forbidden City and yet easy reach of the airport. It took me about 20 minutes from the hotel to the airport in the very early morning. Subway stop at the base of the building (GuoMao Zhan).
*Friendly Staff- I read other reviews about this hotel so I was apprehensive, but I found all the staff to be very friendly and helpful. Most of them could communicate very well in English. I was particularly impressed with Peter (王宇鹏), Susan, Ruby and Terence.
*Facilities- the pool, sauna/steam room and fitness center were all in great shape and well maintained.
*Breakfast- While not as extensive as some buffets, the quality was top-level. Anything you could want for Asian or Western tastes.
*Diamond Members- My parents and I were staying together and were given a complimentary upgrade to a one bedroom suite (two bathrooms, three TVs) and complimentary breakfast for all of us because they are Diamond members.
*Amenities- The cookies, fruit, tea and coffee in the room were all great.

CONS:
*Lighting- I used to work in IT for a living and I could not figure out the lighting system- way too complicated. I just want a switch, but inevitably pushing the button would turn off the lights in the other room or turn all of them on.
*Heating- The room was hot (28 Celsius); we set the thermostat lower, but it remained 27-28 degrees the whole time; we had to just open the windows to stay cool. I notified the front desk and they said they fixed it, but the problem remained and I didn't want to waste my time dealing with it.
*Blinds- After finally finding the switch for the blinds & blackout curtains, I found out the one for the living room was broken. Again, I didn't want to waste my time dealing with it so I just let it go.
*Open Floor Plan- This is a matter of taste, but since I was traveling with my 60+ year old parents, I preferred a more traditional style. Still, with the suite we all had plenty of privacy. If you're traveling with small children, note that none of the sliding room dividers (and bathroom doors) lock. They can just be closed, but not locked.

Room Tip: The one bedroom king suite was very large and very comfortable for three people. I don't think t...

First advice is that you really need to cary the map and the name of hotel in Chinese with you as its not so easy to find and the backdoor entrance makes it a challenge for almost all local taxi drivers I used. Hotel is really nice and modern. Reception at 63th floor which may be a bit confusion upon arrival, then you need to take another elevator down to get to your room. Rooms are enormous and have all you can expect from 5 start hotel. Nothing to complain about. I missed the lounge for the Hyatt members - it simply does not exist. The most disturbing in this almost perfect stay is the attitude of staff. No expressions, no feelings, no smile and worse they are sometimes so buys to chat with themselves that it takes 10 mins before you get attention. I observed it several times during breakfast, dinner and even trying to call guest services.
Windows at grill bar needs some cleaning as well , as you can hardly see anything , but probably it does not matter as you hardly see a blue sky in Beijing anyway.
In summary great place, definitely come back, but hoping for better service.

Loved the Hotel. The staff where very friendly. The rooms are modern and well equipt with a good view of the cctv building. Loved the Japanese style toilets in the room. Great hotel restaurants on the top floor. The internet actually worked and had access to all sites, it seems the "great firewall" doesn't apply in this hotel which is great! The only down side is the reception is not on the ground floor but that is only a very minor problem. I would love to stay here again.

The Park Hyatt in Beijing is fashionable, well located near the third ring road and, taking the top few floors of a multistorey building, generally very well thought through. That said, it gets a little tedious constantly changing lifts to get to the main reception floor, up to the restaurant/casual dining, but to the reception floor and then one lift bank for back to the room and a different lift bank for leaving the hotel.

The casual eating areas are trendy and open, with excellent views over the city. (I was lucky enough to be there when the skies were very clear, with views to the hills surrounding Beijing.) The cooking left a little to be desired. I ordered eggs benedict and sent them back twice when they were so undercooked that the eggs were still refrigerator cold inside.

The rooms are smart and modern, though the lighting system was way too complicated and frustrating. I don't know why hotels bother to do so-called smart things with lighting, when an on/off switch for each light would work way better and not challenge the tired traveler. Ditto for the shower system and the degree of difficulty in figuring out how to change from the (hated) waterfall shower to a proper shower.

Recently took advantage of china 72hr visa and stayed overnight at park Hyatt. I wish I stayed longer. Hotel was beautiful, rooms, restaurants and facilities were excellent. Staff and service was perfect. Staff were friendly and helpful at all times. This was truly one of the best experiences I've had.

Returned to the Park Hyatt Beijing after not having visited for 2 years. No regrets. Absolutely wonderful. Not disappointed. Perfect business hotel. Shall I continue? The rooms are sleek and civilised and after a long flight, I longed for something simple, yet elegant. The spare use of colour is contrasted by the subtle interplay of materials: large, rough granite baths, dark ebony, sleek ivory, plush bathrobes - yum. Large windows in my room overlook snarls of busy highways spanning the broad, bustling city. The Park Hyatt keeps its calm distance by placing the rooms and restaurants high above it all; the breakfast and dining areas have lovely views into the ever-clouded Beijing horizon.

I went for business but made a few quick visits to galleries and museums, with the assistance of the trusty concierge women. For those on the go, hotel staff are very attentive to even the most discriminating of guests (this writer included). Shopping at the Soho mall across the street is fun for those who can try to tell real Prada from fake Prada (I cant, and I have a closet full of the real stuff). If you dont speak Chinese however, you may never learn the final prices. For authentic luxury shopping, stay in the hotel. There are floors of the best international designer names for anyone who forgot a birthday or special occasion while traveling - or a gift to say "I missed you."
