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.
Beyond this first phase, the hotel will embark on a complete reconstruction of four of its nine restaurants, its club facilities, the outdoor approach, as well as behind-the-scenes infrastructural systems from air-conditioning to electrical. The final touches will be put upon the hotel in the spring of 2015, leading up to the Grand Hyatt Taipei's 25th anniversary.
Elsewhere across Asia, Grand Hyatt is likewise refreshing its properties in Seoul, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, Tokyo, Shanghai, Beijing and Melbourne.
In 2014, Taipei was hailed by the New York Times as one of the top destinations in the world for travel.
