In an earlier post I explained the thinking behind my decision to give up a reservation at the Park Hyatt Tokyo in favor of the Hyatt Regency Tokyo so this was the hotel Joanna and I stayed at on our recent trip.

I reviewed this Hyatt Regency earlier in the year so another full review seems a little pointless…instead I thought I’d share a little more info and some pictures of our room as it was slightly different to the room I had earlier in the year.

When I visited the Hyatt Regency Tokyo in January I held Hyatt top-tier status so although I had reserved a standard “King Room” the property had upgraded me to a “Club Room”. This time around I only had Hyatt mid-tier status (Explorist) and there was no upgrade to be had.

I had used one of my four Hyatt “Club Access” awards on this stay but, while this award granted us access to the hotel’s Executive Lounge, it did not get us an upgrade to a Club Room – we were given a regular King Room (albeit with a view).

Still, we weren’t complaining because, as you’ll see from the pictures below, the room was more than adequate for a 4-night stay…..especially considering we spent most of hour time exploring Tokyo so the room was really just somewhere to rest up in between sightseeing.

The side of the bed nearest the window had most of the light and blind controls….

…but both sides had power outlets and the side furthest from the window still had access to a few light controls.

I didn’t get much work done on this visit to the Hyatt Regency but the desk was a good size had I needed to get much done…..

a desk with a computer and a chair in a room

…the chair was comfortable enough…..

….and there were enough power outlets dotted around to keep most guests happy.

The room offers electronic “do not disturb” and “make up room” signs which I like but, when it comes to having the room cleaned/made up I like to call down to housekeeping just as we’re leaving to ask them to service the room asap – I hate coming back to a hotel at the end of the day to find that housekeeping haven’t yet got round to cleaning my room…so I don’t take any chances đŸ™‚

The table and chair by the window were pretty basic but perfectly functional….

….it was still perfectly nice.

The in-room safe was a good size and just about managed to take my 15″ MacBook – a big positive for me.

There was more than enough closet space for two people…..

…and for those who don’t have to pay the bill there was an amply stocked mini-bar (tea and coffee were complimentary):

a box with glasses and bottles

a box of tea bags

a refrigerator with drinks and cans

a glass shelf with a bowl of snacks and a silver container

a teapot and cups on a counter

The views of Shinjuku from the room were nice….

a city with trees and buildings

…and we were looking across (at an angle) at the Tokyo Government Metropolitan Building.

Shinjuku station is a 10 – 15 minute walk away from the hotel and offers a number of subway and overland train lines (including the Narita Express) that are very useful for exploring different areas of the city. The Hyatt Regency runs a regular and frequent shuttle bus service to/from Shinjuku station and we made the most of this when we needed to get ourselves and our luggage to the station to catch the Narita Express.

Bottom Line

The most important thing for me was that I didn’t have any regrets about my decision not to keep our reservation at the Park Hyatt – the Hyatt Regency is in a great location for exploring Tokyo, the room was perfectly adequate for our needs and we saved a LOT of Hyatt points by booking the lower ranked hotel.

I’ve now stayed at the Hyatt Regency Tokyo on all three of my trips to the city and, as long as prices and point redemptions stay the same, I fully expect to be staying here on my next visit too.

  1. Checked out of there just yesterday … indeed a good good location, even a nice grocery store down the block (not that common in Tokyo) and a quiet park for a walk adjacent to the hotel. For first time visitors, I wouldn’t count on that shuttle bus in from Shinjuku Station as finding the #35 stop will be confusing, but once you ride it back from the hotel it will make better sense. And it’s a fairly easy walk. If doing a points stay, the Club (lounge) was VERY much worth it.
