Grand Hyatt Taipei re-imagined, debuts 853 new rooms

The Grand Hyatt Taipei completed work on the first phase of a landmark renovation this month, unveiling 853 new rooms and suites in a design that pays homage to Eastern and Western cultural influences.

After a re-imagination of space that stripped the hotel to its concrete bones, the hotel redeveloped 14 categories of rooms and suites. This is the most significant overhaul since the hotel opened in 1990.

The property’s guestrooms range in size from 355 square feet and 431 square feet at the grand and deluxe levels, to more than 893 square feet in the executive suite. The new presidential suite consists of more than 2,379 square feet, and offers views of the Taipei 101 Tower.
