When planning where we would stay for our weekend in Hong Kong, I narrowed it down between the two main Hyatt properties in Hong Kong: the Grand Hyatt and the Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, Tsim Sha Tsui. I wrote off the Hyatt Regency Sha Tin due to its location relatively far from Central and Kowloon. I booked a room at each property and attempted to use on of my Diamond Suite Upgrades at each property. I was immediately able to confirm a Regency Suite at the Hyatt Regency, but was unable to confirm any sort of suite upgrade at the Grand Hyatt.
I was torn between the two properties — the Grand Hyatt is well-known for being the superior of the two properties, and one of the best Hyatt properties in Asia. The Hyatt Regency, Tsim Sha Tsui, on the other hand, has a very nice location in Kowloon, right above the entrance to the Hong Kong MTR.
We wanted the space of a suite since three of us would be sharing the room, and ultimately that was the deciding factor — since my suite upgrade never cleared at the Grand Hyatt, we chose the Hyatt Regency for our stay.
After arriving on a short hop from Shanghai on China Eastern, we hopped the Airport Express to Kowloon MTR station. Here, we took a cab to the Hyatt Regency (HKD $32).
