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. To be clear, the Grand Hyatt is a beautiful property and the suite was great, but I made a mistake booking it in this order. Having said that, there’s plenty to love about the Grand Hyatt Shenzhen, namely the food.
Before I get to the buffet of breakfast and happy hour, let me present you with pictures of the suite.
The hotel gym is making a comeback in my life. I stopped by to run a few miles before happy hour. They had TRX Ropes, TPOL’s go to workout on the road.
The Happy Hour
Nothing makes TPOL happier than happy hour. It was not as good as the Grand Hyatt Guangzhou but the sample of foods from the hotel’s restaurants was a unique touch.
Exhausted from a previous night out in Coco Park, I did not venture out again. Rested, I was able to wake up in time for breakfast. Everything you could ever want was available. I recommend going early to secure a seat right next to your favorite part of the buffet. Obviously, I picked a spot to dim sum, a food that is as beautiful to photograph as it is to eat.
I liked the Grand Hyatt Shenzhen. It’s not as nice as the one in Guangzhou or Jakarta but there’s nothing bad about it. Still, if you’re in Shenzhen, you should stay at the St. Regis the whole time.
