With over 850 rooms and suites, an enviable location in the shadows of Taipei 101 and panoramic views of the nearby tree covered mountains that border this fast growing city, Grand Hyatt Taipei is a popular choice for visitors to Taipei who are looking for a well established luxury hotel to base themselves.
Upon arrival, the modern and chic lobby is a perfect indication of what you can expect throughout the rest of hotel; clean and contemporary design is found everywhere including the recently refurbished guest rooms. Natural light streams through the atrium lobby, sounds of waterfalls come from the ornamental water features and you are welcomed with a sense of space and purpose as people go about their business.
After check-in we’re shown to our room which had a striking, up close view of The Grand Hyatt Taipei’s famous neighbour, the iconic Taipei 101 building. The mix of urban development set against the forested mountains in the background provided a captivating vista from our window and we often found ourselves gazing out at the city below.
There was a huge TV with a good selection of channels, a seating area and a bathroom with a shower and a bathtub; the design managing to be compact and spacious at the same time.
Taipei is a great city, full of life, colour, things to do, see and eat; it’s a centre for business travellers and leisure travellers alike and this luxury hotel is well suited to both.
There are facilities for all including extensive conference facilities, a business lounge, an outdoor heated pool and 2 well-equipped 24 hour gyms, not to mention being within easy reach of some of the city’s best shopping locations and key transport hubs.
We’re always keen to find out how a hotel caters for guests with a plant based diet and whether they are able to offer the same quality of service to their vegan guests, as they do to other guests. We checked in to see how the Grand Hyatt Taipei could veganise their service and to see what kind of vegan food we’d find there.
