This massive curved tower may seem all business up front, with 825 rooms and suites decked out in a simple, Western-vibed elegance of blond wood, black-and-white photos and marble baths. But then you discover the party in the back: Club Oasis. The gigantic indoor pool is ringed by Atlantis-like stone columns, potted palms, waterfalls, and Jacuzzi grottos with a color-changing “sky” that wouldn’t feel out of place in Vegas. Interior walkways to the subway and Malls at Oriental Plaza make the hotel’s seven dining and drinking destinations as much a hit with Beijing’s moneyed masses as with guests.
In the Area
Nearby Tiananmen Square and The Forbidden City may offer serious sightseeing, but pedestrianized Wangfujing Dajie, Beijing’s oldest and most famous shopping street, and the picturesque hutongs that branch off it present a crash course in Chinese culture that harkens back to the Ming Dynasty. Today hundreds of odd stores from swanky relics (Shengxifu hats, Wuyutai tea) to flea market-style finds cater to the tourist trade. Set down a picturesque hutong is one of Beijing’s most charming restaurants, Dali Courtyard. A daily set menu lets you taste your way through expertly cooked Yunnanese specialties in a tree-lined courtyard ringed in Imperial-style walls. Feeling fearless? Wangfujing Xiao Chi Jie“Snack Street” offers pan-China street food with everything from Sichuan dumplings and Cantonese seafood soups to starfish, snakes and scorpions served on sticks. For a window into modern Beijing, spend an afternoon wandering through 798 Dashanzi, a complex of art galleries, cafes and boutiques carved from a factory district that once produced electronics for the military.
How to Get There
My all time favourite hotel. Been staying here whenever I am in Beijing since its opening in 2001.
The indoor mood pool is my favourite on top of the hotels location, staff, service and food.
The Make in China restaurant is famous for its food especially its Peking Duck.
We stayed at the Grand Hyatt for 4 nights. It was a great experience. Good food great staff and one of the best pool facilities we have seen in our travels. The location of the hotel is closed to the major atttarctions and easy to access.
The Grand Hyatt Beijing is in a central location, connected to a nice shopping mall and the metro station. The front of the building is on a big street with lots of car but if you walk out from the back, by the concierge desk you are like 2 blocks away from a busy street with shops, restaurants and the famous snack streets where you can eat scorpions and other unusual creatures.
The staff was good and spoke English which is not very common in this city. The concierge helped me book a private tour to Forbidden City via email which was very convenient and I just charged to my room.
We had the dim sum breakfast one morning and unfortunately that was disappointing. Not the quality/variety I expected for the price.
The tropical pool, although we didn’t have time to use, was very cool.
Our room was clean and spacious with a nice shower and separate bath tub where I could get a nice bubble bath after walking all day. Loved their toiletries. The shower gel smells so good!
You can also take about a 20 min walk to Tianamen Square/Forbidden city.
Stayed here for business, so did not really get to use many of the facilities or travel around outside the hotel. The hotel was a standard high-end business hotel, all very clean and efficient, as expected. The staff were all freindly and helpful. We ate in the Made in China restaurant late one night and the food was very good. Nothing bad to report at all, which is a good sign in itself!
Grand Hyatt had an excellent location of being close to forbidden city and tiananmen square.It was also close to a great shopping street called Wangfujing .The rooms were good and well maintained. The staff were courteous .The concierge did not knew english very well and we had tough time explaining them to suggest us some good restaurants or night clubs near by but were not of much help as they would not understand.
