Grand Hyatt Taipei schedules April 23 re-launch

The Grand Hyatt Taipei announced its scheduled re-launch on April 23, some 25 years after opening as the first international luxury hotel in the capital. The property underwent a top-to-toe renovation that fleshed out the hotel from its concrete bones. Each of the property’s 853 rooms and suites was stripped to the fundamentals, redesigned and rebuilt.

When re-launched, the hotel will have guest ooms that will range in size from 355 square feet and 431 square feet at the grand deluxe level, to more than 893 square feet in an executive suite. The new presidential suite commands more than 2,379 square feet and offers views of the Taipei 101 Tower. Baths will be clad in half-square-meters of marble, new lighting, muted colors, goose down duvets, deep-soaking tubs, ample windows and textured walls.

Beyond the rooms, the all-new Grand Hyatt Taipei has two completely new restaurants: a Chinese restaurant, Yun Jin and a Western venue, The Steakhouse, each a completely new concept and a ground-up build. Yun Jin’s début was in February. Work on the Steakhouse begins later this year.

Virtual Roundtable

Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience

Join Hotel Management’s Elaine Simon for our latest roundtable—Post COVID-19: The New Guest Experience. The experts on the panel will share how to inspire guest confidence that hotels are safe and clean and how to win back guest business.

Likewise, the Club Lounge is an all-new experience. Key designs include: high counters, window-side alcoves and a new, open show kitchen.

A new, less formal check-in will similarly be available, with staff and guests gathering at any of five low-slung desks.  The lobby also replaced its souvenir shop with Baguette, a bakery and gift shop.
