I published a review of the Hyatt Regency London earlier in the year as not much changed between that stay and the stay that saw me upgraded into a Regency Suite with Balcony, another full-on review of the property probably wouldn’t be particularly useful.
What may be useful, however, is a look at one of the suites that Globalist members may be upgraded into if they use a suite upgrade award or if they’re lucky enough to get a complimentary suite upgrade when they stay at the Churchill so, with that in mind, here are a few images of the Regency Suite with Balcony that I was upgraded into on a recent stay.
A Regency Suite With Balcony At The Churchill
The Living Area
The door to the suite opens into the living area which comes complete with a desk & chair, a sofa (which can turn into a bed), a coffee table, and a cabinet that a large flatscreen TV uses as a stand and which houses the in-room safe.
Just inside the door of the suite (and behind the desk) is where the suites Nespresso coffee makes is to be found (together with a selection of Nespresso coffee pods), and the cabinet upon which the coffee maker sits is where the minibar and further tea/coffee making facilities are located.
If you haven’t been informed that your suite comes with a balcony it may not be immediately obvious that there’s a balcony at your disposal because the net curtains can hide its presence….but it’s there.
The balcony itself isn’t exactly spectacular but it’s nice to have some outside space and the balcony can be accessed from the living area (as you’ve seen) and from the bedroom.
The bedroom is accessed through a door from the living area…
…and is home to pretty much what you’d expect from a hotel bedroom – a king-size bed, two side tables, some lamps, a chair, a small table, a chest of drawers, and the obligatory flatscreen TV.
The lack of power outlets or USB ports on one side of the bed was a little surprising as the other room types that I’ve seen at this property all seem to offer power on both sides of the bed.
Leading off the bedroom is the suite’s bathroom which unlike the standard rooms at the Hyatt Regency London, offers both a shower and a bath (the standard rooms only have showers).
The suite’s closet is found just inside the door to the bathroom…
…and while there’s a good amount of hanging space, a bit too much space is taken up with things like an ironing board and a second bathrobe (the first robe is to be found handing on the bak of the bathroom door).
If you’re wondering where the drawers are, there aren’t any in the closet….but there’s a unit with three large drawers in the bedroom.
Overall this was another very comfortable stay at the Hyatt Regency in London and while it’s not the best suite that I’ve been upgraded to at this property (I’ll publish pictures of that in due course), this was the first time that I’ve had a balcony at my disposal and that made a very pleasant change.
Once again I found the staff and service at the Churchill to be of a high standard and the hotel continues to impress me on every visit. I appreciate the property’s central location, the bar and patio are particular favorites of mine and I’ll never grow tired of the upgrades that I get when I stay. At 25,000 World of Hyatt points per night (and with Ultimate Rewards points converting to Hyatt points in a 1:1 ratio), this is definitely a property to keep in mind the next time you’re visiting London.
