Park Hyatt’s hotel in the prestigious Beijing Yintai Centre is the tallest skyscraper on Chang’an Avenue (a symbol of the “new China.”) The 246 contemporary guest rooms have blond wood, crisp white linens, functional workstations for the hotel’s many business travelers, and spa-inspired bathrooms for anyone who wants to relax. The spa itself is inspired by traditional Chinese medicine, and its treatments include tui na massage and cupping; no less enticing are the fitness center and lap pool high in the sky. The varied dining venues include an outpost of the China Grill steak house with staggering city views, while the Xiu complex includes three bars, wine cellars, and live entertainment.
In the Area
The hotel is directly opposite the China World Trade Center and the architecturally striking CCTV tower, and within walking distance of major tourist attractions such as Beihai Park, built in the 11th century as an imperial garden and now a public park; Tiananmen Square and the Forbidden City are also in range. The contemporary art scene is thriving nearby as well, including the 798 Dashanzi Art Zone, the Red Gate Gallery, and the Today Art Museum.
How to Get There
This was my 1st stay at Park Hyatt Beijing. Its a land mark hotel. Room design were just awesome - large rooms with all modern facilities. restaurant at 66th Floor was a place to visit for me. Couple of cons were - the room access was peculiar , going up then down and then another step for room.. not good at all. Also, my room's hot water was not working, they changed the room though. The location was very near to silk market.
Central location across from China World and next to 3rd ring east, but was very quiet in the room. Has a great, dark-themed, 25-meter full-length lap pool for swimming. Been recently completely renovated.
They finished the renovation on the last day when I am there. I must say that it is fantastic. The upgraded look is very refreshing. Very contemporary. I like it. I was there twice during the renovation period. It was a little inconvenient but guess it can’t be helped. Now it is business as usual. The staff tries to please... which is good. As they are not native English speakers, they are doing a great job there. The breakfast at China Grill has also improved. Good job.
A collapse in service levels and the state of the hotel. I have to stay the hotel is not really fit for purpose as a top class five star hotel. I understand the renovations will improve the hotel for future guest but I want my stay to be great not someone else’s.
One needs three different lifts to get to ones room. However, added to this is some of the lifts are also out out of order. You would think if they doing renovations you would attempt to minimise the inconvenience not add to it. So there are only two lifts on the ground floor with one out of use. Then when one eventually gets to the guest lifts the same thing again only two lifts are operational rather than three.
Meanwhile, the lounge area that had been cobbled together is really like a 2 star hotel and is quite unpleasant.
I note that their website still gives all the glossy pictures of the hotel and in no way indicates the current state of the hotel. I am extremely disappointed with my stay at the Park Hyatt Beijing and to be honest felt cheated.
I also looked retrospectively at the trip advisor reviews and subsequently saw others with similar issues. I wrote to the Hyatt about this, I received a standard the hotel will be great when you not staying there type reply I also note the careless responses on trip adviser from people who had similar problems to me. Wisely at check out, they clearly don’t ask how was your stay? You’ve been warned.
Beijing has hotel Olympics. Every brand, every impressive design can be found in China’s capital .
Park Hyatt still stands out amongst such competition .
Apart from its Ground floor lobby, this Park Hyatt does not adopt the dark and dimmed look that some of the Hyatt properties are known for . Which is welcomed :)
The room is a well-appointed studio allowing plenty of light to keep it bright .
The bathtub, the basin area, the shower are all huge with heated floors.
The Property was opened in 2008 but it has looked nice and well maintained during my visits at various times. Less out of necessity, the management is giving the public areas a face-lift.
Good service .
The only fault would be the terrible traffic in the hotel’s vicinity. Allow extra 30 minutes when you go out by car .
