Hyatt Group Hotel Review

Leo Saito

〇Park Hyatt Niseko
Spacious rooms, plenty of ski lockers and ski rentals.
Wide variety of restaurants.

△Hyatt Regency Tokyo Bay
30-minute walk from the station … a hotel only for visiting Disneyland.

△Hyatt Centric Ginza
For people who just want a room to sleep.

〇Andaz Tokyo
Rooms are large and functional. Pool is comfortable. Good breakfast too.

〇Grand Hyatt Tokyo
Many strange couples, few children.
Selection of restaurants is good.

〇Park Hyatt Tokyo
Building is old but well maintained.
Fitness center, pool, and spa are attractive.

xHyatt Regency Tokyo
Building is old but basically well maintained.
Walls of the room are thin.
Accommodation rates are cheap and good value. However, rumors are that it will be closed soon.

〇Hyatt Regency Yokohama
Rooms are small but new and functional.
Location right next to Yamashita Park is also excellent.

×Hyatt Regency Hakone Resort and Spa
Slightly noisy as many guests have children.
While the spa is a key selling point, the hot springs are not good enough.
Rooms are poor value given the price.

〇Hyatt Centric Kanazawa
Good value. Conveniently located near the station. Breakfast is delicious.

◎Hyatt House Kanazawa
Strong value for money. Similar to the Hyatt Place.

〇Park Hyatt Kyoto
Good clientele. Service is perfect although very expensive.
Japanese breakfast is delicious.
Excellent location for sightseeing along Ninenzaka.

◎Hyatt Regency Kyoto
Price changes a lot depending on the season.
Old but well maintained.
Afternoon tea service is high quality.

◎Hyatt Place Kyoto
Best value for money. Conveniently located near the station.

×Hyatt Regency Osaka
Old but spacious rooms.
Located far from the city center so it’s not convenient.

〇Grand Hyatt Fukuoka
Building is old but well maintained.
Walls are thin and noisy.
No children allowed in the pool.

〇Hyatt Regency Okinawa
Excellent value for money.
There are few guests with children, and it is rare for a luxury hotel in Naha City to offer such a relaxing stay.

×Hyatt Regency Seraga Island Okinawa
Quite noisy as many guests have children.

We have 3 nights booked at Park Hyatt Niseko in early March - in regards to their restaurant options did you have any preferences?

The Italian cuisine at Olivio and the French cuisine at Molière montagne were satisfactory.
The French restaurant "Restaurant Maccarina" in the same area was also quite good, although not in the hotel.

How would you rate their concierge services, if you have used them? Saito San, figure you probably don't need their help to book restaurants.

NO, I have never used the concierge services myself, so I can't make an assessment.

Figured so! I stayed at PH Tokyo years ago and the concierge service was good. Used to be one of the few 5* hotels that could book Sawada for example. Don’t know how things have been going nowadays.

PH Kyoto is my favorite hotel in Kyoto. Service is much better than, say, Aman or Hoshinoya. Food is surprisingly delicious and well priced.

Also a reminder that many slh properties have a partnership with Hyatt now and can be booked through their site. Tokyo station hotel's concierge has been great in our experience and is part of this program.

Had an enjoyable stay at the Park Hyatt Niseko, rooms are lovely and the variety of restaurants is nice. Lounge and bar had live music and was decent to hang out at.

However I have to say that they were possibly the worst concierge I have ever worked with haha

Saito-san, I am a Hyatt globalist and am trying to plan out my upcoming stay. I understand that the concierge at the Tokyo Station Hotel in Tokyo is fantastic. I have enjoyed the Andaz from previous trips. I'm considering staying at the Tokyo Station Hotel for multiple days to use the Concierge and for easy access to the train (for Kanazawa and Gunma) but am wondering if I don't need to (if there are better hotels).

These are the restaurants I'm interested in eating at during my stay:
Sushi Namba or Sawada or Inomata (lunch)
Den (dinner)

Dinners outside of Tokyo:
Sushi Mekumi Dokoro (Kanazawa)
Sushi Obana (Gunma)

I understand that many of these can be booked with third party concierges, though I know a place like Obana takes foreigner reservations later.
Would the Tokyo Station Hotel be able to help me get a reservation on time?

The Tokyo Station hotel currently has 3 nights available on points over the dates when I want to go. What do you think I should do?

Not saito-san. Please take my comments with a pinch of salt.

Frankly, hotel concierge doesn't have much sway nowadays.
Either tableall/go with a regular/omakase cancellations.

Sawada and inomata are only on omakase and inomata no longer do lunch.
Mekumi, namba hibiya please go to tableall.

If your dates are flexible, it's possible to still make a reservation at sushi obana.

Den, good luck calling yourself.

Thanks, I was worried that this would be the case.
I thought that it would be good to stay at Tokyo Station to make getting to Kanazawa and Gunma easier but maybe it doesn't matter.
I should probably just stay in Ginza or stay at the Andaz.

I have never used Tableall and Omakase to book reservations.
For Omakase, is there a good way to gain access to a Japanese phone number? I do have a friend in Tokyo. I guess I could use his number and put my name on the account?

Yes, you can do so if he hasn't registered an omakase acc previously with his number. They would send an OTP to the Japanese number after you have registered your account. So your friend would need to be available to forward you the OTP for verification.
