The days of St. Regis New York luxury are over. Now, when I need a hotel in New York, I look for the cheapest option at the best location. The Four Points brand by SPG is usually an affordable option.
Sanya hotels are too expensive to spend cash and too cheap to use points. (see my post Struggling to Find Where to Stay in Sanya) My first hotel in Sanya was the Four Point Sheraton. It is a decent value at $80 a night but certainly not worth 7,000 SPG points.
Reviewing the Grand Hyatt Shenzhen after staying at the St. Regis Shenzhen is unfair. Although it's not as extreme, it's like the time I stayed at the Sheraton New York Times Square after staying at my favorite hotel of all time, the St. Regis New York.
Get out of the way Hyatt Hong Kong. Get out of the way Hong Kong. Shenzhen is not the New Jersey equivalent to New York. It is a bustling metropolis with sights, sounds, and skyscrapers.
Grab your pitchforks! It's time to revolt against the Hyatt Hong Kong and its shady ways. This was my third time staying at this property and it will certainly be my last.
There are Park Hyatts and then there are Park Hyatts. Unlike the Park Hyatt Melbourne or the Park Hyatt Toronto, the Park Hyatt Guangzhou falls into the latter category. Situated in the business district of Guangzhou, the Park Hyatt Guangzhou is one of the best Park Hyatts in the collection.
Welcome to the Grand Hyatt Guangzhou, an impressive hotel with great customer service, a beautiful room, and an overwhelming breakfast. But for my stay at the Park Hyatt Guangzhou, I would recommend making this your home when you visit Guangzhou.
