Grand Hyatt Jakarta

The Grand Hyatt Jakarta overlooks the iconic Selamat Datang Monument, and is great for shopaholics as it is attached to the Plaza Indonesia Mall and across the street from the Grand Indonesia Mall.

Hotel Entrance

Before entering the hotel you and your things will go through a quick security check. Once entering the hotel, there is a grand staircase with an open atrium to the hotel. There is an escalator located to the left of the staircase.

img_2258
Grand Suite

Upon exiting the escalator is the front desk. I was quickly checked-in to my room. I used a Diamond Suite upgrade certificate for this stay, and was placed into the Grand Suite.

img_2226
Guest Bathroom

Upon entering the room, a guest bathroom is located directly to the right.

img_2229
Dining Table

Just to the left of the entryway is a small dining table. Beyond that is the coffee maker and 6 bottles of water.

img_2227
Living Room

Proceeding straight from the entry is the living room which had a sofa, chair with ottoman, another ottoman, a coffee table, and an end table.  A bowl of fruit was also sitting on the coffee table.

img_2228
Desk, Mini-Bar

In the corner of the living room was the desk, and mini-bar.

img_2241
TV

A TV was hung on the wall facing the door, but could be seen from both the desk and sitting area.

img_2230
Peanuts & Cookies

Waiting on top of the desk were two boxes of peanuts, and a box of chocolate cookies.

img_2245
Office Supplies

Next to the desk were items that could come in handy, such as paper clips, binder, stapler, and Post-Its.

img_2232
King Bed

The bedroom featured a king bed with a bench at the foot of the bed. A rack to hang your jacket was also provided.

img_2240
Bedroom TV

The bedroom had a small TV, but there was a door that separated it from the living room.

The walk-“through” closet was huge, with drawers, two sets of racks to hang your clothes, a place to store your luggage, iron, ironing board, and robes.  There is a vanity mirror also located inside of the closet.

img_2234
Master Bathroom

The closet also led to the master bathroom which contained two sinks and a large tub.

img_2235
Toilet & Bidet

The toilet and bidet were in a separate enclave.

img_2236
Shower

The shower featured both a handheld nozzle, and rainfall showerhead. June Jacobs products were featured, which are not my favorite.

The Grand Club is located on the 22nd floor. I did not eat breakfast here during my stay, as I was given the option to have breakfast in the restaurant, which I thought was a much better option. The Grand Lounge is rather long and narrow. Tables are located throughout the lounge with a few couches sprinkled throughout.

The lounge also features a smoking section, which is located in the very back of the lounge. There is a door that separates the smoking section from the rest of the lounge, and does a pretty good job of keeping the smoke out.

Daytime offerings were rather sparse, and included fruit, cookies, and drinks.

img_2277
Peking Duck

Evening offerings include a “featured dish” that was located next to the entrance. One night it was Peking duck, another night was a whole fish.

There were three other hot items offered each day, along with sandwiches, salads, assorted appetizers, bread, cheese, sushi, and dessert.

I chose to have breakfast in the Grand Café. I tried taking pictures of the buffet my first morning but was stopped by the “Picture Nazi”. She started yelling and waving her arms telling me no pictures were allowed. There were no more than 5 guests in the restaurants, and perhaps she was concerned that I was taking pictures of other guests. In my opinion, this policy only hurts the restaurant, and hotel, instead Why wouldn’t potential guests/customers want to see what the restaurant had to offer.

The breakfast buffet included Asian, Western, and Indian options. In addition, you could have eggs prepared any way you liked as a Diamond member.

img_2396
Pool Area

The pool area looks more like a Balinese resort, rather than a city hotel. There is a nice A-frame building when entering the pool area which has some Indonesian art decorations throughout.

There is a garden-like section.

There are outdoor beds available.

The pool is actually fairly large. The main feature might be the the “3 idols” from which water spews from their mouths.

There is also a Jacuzzi area.

img_2412
Swim-Up Bar

There is also a swim up bar, which was not in use during the time of my visit.

img_2414
Additional Pool Seating

There is also seating away from the pool area.

The gym is one of the most impressive I have seen for a hotel gym.

The amount of exercise equipment is quite staggering, was in good shape, and relatively new. Equipment included bikes, treadmills, elliptical machines, Swiss balls, free weight, and weight machines.

There is a separate cardio room which featured a Pilates table, kickboxing bag, dance bars, and yoga mats.

img_2421
Cafe/Lounge

There is also a café/sitting area.

img_2427
Men’s Locker Room

The men’s locker room was impressive with plenty of lockers in a large open space.

img_2431
Men’s Lounge

There is also a lounging area within the locker room.

img_2433
Physical Therapy Office

There is a Physical Therapy office located next to the gym, but I am sure that is not included in the room rate.

The Grand Hyatt Jakarta is centrally located, and convenient to many restaurants, and of course shopping.

Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui – Hong Kong

After getting off the A21 City Flyer bus, I walked a short block to the Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui. Although the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong is nicer, and they are probably done with their renovation, it is sort of isolated. Plus, I actually enjoyed my stay at the Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui on my prior visit.

Since I was arriving very late, check-in was quick and smooth. I had applied a Diamond Suite upgrade for this stay.

img_1890
Room 1825

My room was located on the 18th floor at the end of the hallway.

img_1550
Entry Hallway

Upon entering the room there is a short hallway with a nice black and white picture, at which time you could go left or right.

img_1549
Living Room

To the left was a small living room of sorts. There is a slightly curved couch, table and luggage rack.

img_1551
Coffee Maker & Mini Bar

There was also a smaller flat screen TV, coffee maker, 5 bottles of water, and the mini-bar.

img_1763
Fruit Plate

There was a welcome amenity of a plate of fruit.

img_1766
Red Wine

I was also given a bottle of wine.

img_1553
View to Bathroom

From the living room, you could look across the bedroom and into the bathroom.

img_1554
Desk

There is a small desk, with a decent amount of work space if just working on a computer. The hotel provides a free cell phone to use during your stay.  You can make unlimited phone calls, and free internet use on the phone.  Best of all, you can use the phone as a wifi hotspot.

img_1556
Bed

The bed has a nightstand on each side. A bottle of water was also provided. Although there were outlets, I could not get them to work.

img_1557
TV

There is a small TV in the corner of the bedroom.

img_1555
Tub

The bathroom had a nice deep tub, which I did not use.

img_1559
Sink

There is a single sink with a decent amount of counter space.

img_1560
Toilet

The toilet has its own enclosure.

img_1561
Shower

The shower had dual shower heads, as well as a mirror. Both water pressure and water temperature were very good.

img_1562
Closet

When turning right at the end of the entrance hallway, was an open closet. It contained robes, slippers, iron, ironing board, and a couple of drawers.

img_1563
View to Living Room

You could see into the living room from the closet area, and vice versa.

img_1900
Victoria Harbor

I had a nice view of Victoria Harbor from my room.

img_1762
Club Lounge

Breakfast is served in the Club Lounge. The lounge is split up into two areas. The main area is somewhat small and narrow.

There is a back room, which is a little bigger. Both rooms have fantastic views of Victoria Harbor.

There was a selection of bread, beans, sausage, green beans and pork, noodles, congee, pastries, fruit, cereal, salad fixings, cheese, milk, yogurt, drinks, museli, juice, cold cuts and a coffee machine.

There is also a small menu with eggs prepared to your liking, sausage, bacon, asparagus, hash browns, and a grilled tomato.

During the evening there was a selection of chips, bread, desserts, salads, soup, mushrooms, guacamole, salsa, crudité, cheese, and nuts.

Hot items included lamb meatballs, vegetable buns, and shrimp toast.

The gym is on the smaller side, but has a decent variety of equipment, as well a small fridge of water.

The hotel also has an outdoor garden, which was kind of sparse at the time of my visit.

img_1786
Play Area

There is also a small play area on the garden level.

The pool was located one floor down from the garden level.

img_1787
Pool Area

There is a small seating area with a bar.

There was a sign saying that the pool was closed, but there were a few people laying out by the pool.

I had a great stay at the Hyatt Regency Tsim Sha Tsui. If you don’t mind being on the Kowloon side, I think this is a solid choice. It is attached to the K11 mall, there are MTR stations accessible without leaving the hotel. In addition, there is a vast amount of shopping and restaurants in the immediate area.

Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral

Since my flight into Kuala Lumpur arrived much later than scheduled, I did not have too much time in the city.

After taking the KLIA Express from the airport to the KL Sentral train station, it was an easy walk to the Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral since it is attached to the train station. The KLIA Express is having a promotion through the end of the year. You get a 20% discount when paying with Mastercard. You can buy online, through their app, or at the ticket kiosk at the airport or Sentral station. I chose to buy through their app, which worked like a charm.

After following the signs and heading up the escalator, turn right once you reach the entrance of the mall. You will head down a walkway past some restaurants and enter the hotel on the second floor.

Take the elevator right by that entrance, as it only goes to floors one and two, so waiting shouldn’t be a problem.

Compared to my prior visit earlier in the year, check-in was quicker.

img_1318
Room 1811

I was given keys to my king room.

img_1319
Bathroom

Upon entering the room, the bathroom is located directly to the left. There is a single sink, a walk-in shower and toilet. The shower and toilet share the same sliding door, which can be awkward if sharing the room with another person.

img_1320
Shower

The shower has dispensers for shampoo/conditioner, and body wash.

img_1321
Toilet

The space for the toiler is a little cramped. In addition to the toilet, there is a hose.

img_1322
Coffee Maker

Across from the toilet is the coffee maker and safe. Four bottles of complimentary water are provided, which is very generous.

img_1323
Closet

Next to the coffee maker is the closets, which contains two robes, two pairs of slippers and extra towels.

img_1324
Room

The room is fairly spacious with plenty space to move around. The room is on the dimmer side however, as lights are not plentiful.

img_1325
Bean Bag Chair

Something that wasn’t in the room on my prior visit was a brightly pink bean bag chair.

img_1326
Bed

The bed was on the firm side. There is a small night stand on either side of the bed, however outlets were only provided near the right side of the bed.

img_1331
Durian Sign

There was a funny sign/slogan over the bed.

img_1327
Free Drinks

One new thing that this Aloft offers is free drinks and snacks, much like the Hyatt Andaz brand does. There were two bottles of water, two soft drinks, an energy drink, orange juice, and a beer.

img_1328
Free Snacks

On the snack side, there were two bags much like cheese puffs, a small canister of Pringles, oriental crackers, a small pack of Oreos, a “healthy cookie” and a bag of peanuts.

I though the drink and snack selection was very generous, and would be replaced daily. This is much more than the Andaz hotels that I have been to offer.

My stay was much better this time around. I think that since the hotel has been open for a while, some of the kinks are starting to be worked out. The Aloft Kuala Lumpur Sentral is convenient if coming from the airport late, or for early departures.

Courtyard by Marriott Bangkok

img_1098
Courtyard by Marriott Bangkok

The Marriott Courtyard Bangkok is located between the Grand Hyatt Bangkok and the St. Regis Bangkok down a small street near the Erawan Shrine.

img_0922

Nervae Produces

Nirvae amenities were provided, which weren’t half bad and had a nice citrus scent.

img_0923

img_0924
Bench

There is only a shower, which was pretty spacious. Water pressure could have been better but the temperature remained steady. There is also a bench in the shower.

img_0925
Toilet

The toilet was located in the corner.

img_0917
Desk

On the other side of the bathroom window sits the desk. The desk is slightly on the smaller side, but had enough working space for me. Outlets were conveniently placed next to the desk with one outlet that could be used without the need for an adapter. Next to the desk was the TV.

img_0918
Chair & Ottoman

In the corner of the room was a chair with ottoman, small coffee table and lamp.

img_0919
Bed

The bed was slightly on the firmer side with plenty space of walk around on each side. A nightstand was on both sides of the bed. Unfortunately, there were no outlets next to the bed.

img_1100
Welcome Amenity

Waiting in my room was a welcome amenity of a small chocolate cake, which was very rich and chocolatey.

img_1207
Trail Mix

On another day, I was given a small bag of trail mix, and sugared tamarind.

img_0926
Welcome Letter

I was given a welcome letter which outlined some of the benefits of the hotel. One of the unique features of the hotel is that it has a Club Lounge, a rarity for Courtyards.

img_1099
Merger Letter

I was also given a letter announcing the official merger with SPG.

img_0930
Business Lounge

The Business Lounge is located on the 15th floor.

img_0931
Lounge Entrance

The entrance had two glass doors. You had to scan your room key in order to enter the lounge.

There is a reception desk located to the left once you enter.

There is a front room with a few seats, but was mostly used to hold some of the food items.

Although I didn’t eat breakfast in the lounge, I did check it out one morning.

There was bacon, potatoes, eggs, beans, tomatoes, sausage, and condiments.  There was also a coffee maker and different varieties of tea.  There are also a couple of refrigerators with drinks including soft drinks, juice, yogurt, museli, milk, fruit, water and beer (evenings).

In the evening, there were salad fixings, bread, desserts, cheese, a selection of alcohol, and several hot offerings per night.

img_1109
Lounge Bathroom

The bathroom in the lounge is fairly spacious and was clean.

img_1208
Lounge Seating

The back room of the lounge has additional seating.

There is a balcony with additional seating, but it was raining during much of my stay.

img_1206
Lounge View

The view from the lounge is of the surrounding high rise buildings.

img_0940
Momo

Marriott/Ritz Carlton Gold and Platinum members get access to the lounge. I was given the option of having breakfast in their restaurant, Momo Cafe. You have access to the buffet.

There are a variety of juices, smoothies, fruit, Eastern and Western offerings.

img_0964
Laksa Station

There is even a Laksa station.

There is a signature egg dish offered during breakfast as well, which was a Chicken Panang Curry Egg Benedict, which was very good.

The gym is on the smaller side, but had enough equipment to get a decent work out. Bottled water, towels and a water dispenser if also provided.

The pool area is two stories to some extent.

There is a bar and outdoor shower by the pool.

img_1238
Pool

The pool itself is on the smaller side, but perfectly functional.

The top floor has a deck with a couple of lounge chairs and umbrellas.

The hotel also has a tuk tuk, which takes you to the Chit Lom BTS station. They depart every 30 minutes or so.

Although back from the main streets, the Marriott Courtyard Bangkok is an excellent choice, especially for Gold and Platinum members, due to the lounge and breakfast benefits.

Prices also seem pretty reasonable, as they seem to be under $100/night.

I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.  It’s a particularly good deal if you have status with Marriott/Ritz Carlton, and SPG once they get fully incorporated.

Hyatt Place Ontario/Rancho Cucamonga

It has been a couple of years since I last reviewed the Hyatt Place Ontarior/Rancho Cucamonga. A lot has changed since that time. The hotel has a new owner, and most of the staff has been replaced. It does appear that a refresh of the hotel has been done however.

Upon entering the hotel, the front desk is slightly to the right. I was quickly helped, but it took about 15 minutes to get checked in. The front desk associate saw my reservation, but then checked her computer and probably called the shift manager about my reservations. I’m not sure what the problem was as it was never explained to me. It’s not like I was getting upgraded to a suite, since this Hyatt Place doesn’t have any.

img_0649
King Room

I was eventually assigned to room 315.

img_0652
Couch, Ottoman

Upon entering the room, there is an L-shaped couch with two ottomans, and small table to the right.

img_0650
Coffee, Sink

To the left is a small counter with sink. There is a small coffee maker as well.  A small refrigerator is located under the counter.

img_0651
Desk

The desk is located opposite of the small counter, which is on the smaller side, but functional.

img_0653
King Bed

There is a semi-partition between the couch and desk area to the bed. The bed is on the firmer side, but still comfortable. There is an in-room air conditioner rather than central air conditioning. The air conditioner is rather loud but does cool the room quite well.

img_0654
Sink

The bathroom is split into two parts. The sink is located in the room.

img_0655
Shower, Toilet

The bathroom has a toilet and shower with a fully enclosed door, which is something new. Previously, the showers had the dreaded half door.

img_0656

The bathroom was on the dirty side, as there was something unidentifiable on the floor.

img_0659
Gym

The gym is located on the ground floor. It is rather small, with little equipment, but good enough for a quick work out.

img_0660
Towels, Headphones

Towels are provided, as ear headphones, which is a nice touch. There is also a water cooler.

Breakfast is complimentary for all guests. Hyatt Place has their “Signature Skillets”. On this day, there was something that resembled an Egg McMuffin, both as a complete sandwich, and an open faced sandwich. There are also pancakes, juice, fruit, bread, pastries, yogurt, and oatmeal.

img_0737
Coffee

There is a separate coffee station.

img_0736
Cereal

The cereal is also located away from the main dining area.

img_0738
Pool

The pool area is on the smaller side, but it is nice that there is a pool.

The hotel is undergoing some changes with a new owner, and new staff. It seems that they are going through some growing pains.

Hyatt City of Dreams Manila

img_0576
Hyatt City of Dreams Manila

After getting through immigration, which wasn’t too bad considering the very late arrival, I exited the airport and had a decision to make. Either grab a cab, which I had hear horror stories about, or use Grab car. There is a Grab stand about 100 feet and slightly to the right when exiting the airport. As I had never been to Manila before I decided to use Grab at their stand. In retrospect, it may have been less expensive to book a Grab car directly through their website, as the stand does charge you a small fee. For what its worth, they also use the Grab app to get their cars. Although Uber does exist in Manila they have a very small presence, and getting a car may be somewhat difficult.

img_0177
Hyatt City of Dreams Manila

Before entering the Hyatt City of Dreams Manila, all guests must go through a metal detector and security.

Upon entering the hotel, the front desk is located immediately to the left. It took a few minutes before I was helped as other guests were checking in. Features of the hotel were explained, and I was told that as a Hyatt Diamond member, I could either have breakfast in the Regency Club, or in their restaurant, The Cafe.

I tried using a Diamond Suite upgrade, but was told that I could not do so as suites were usually given away to high rollers from the attached casino.

img_0063
Hallway

The hallways are clean, attractive and modern looking.

img_0062
King Deluxe Room

I was informed that I was upgraded to a King Deluxe room, room 7715.

img_0041
Spacious Room

The room is spacious with plenty of room to walk around.

img_0047
Tub

Upon entering the room, the bathroom is to the right. The tub is large and deep.

img_0048
Sink

There is a single sink with plenty of counter space. This is the deepest bathroom sink that I have ever seen as it came up past my elbow.

img_0049
Toilet

The toilet is located in a small partition.

img_0050
Shower

There is a dual showerhead shower with decent water pressure which maintained its temperature well.

img_0051
Portico Products

Lemon Verbena Portico products were provided.

img_0153
Amenities

Other amenities were also provided, such as toothbrushes, shaving cream, etc.

img_0053
Closet

The closet is located directly across from the bathroom, and is rather large. There is an iron and ironing board.

img_0054
Closet

On the other side of the closet was a safe, hair dryer and several drawers.

img_0046
Coffee Maker, Water

After exiting the bathroom, the mini bar, coffee maker, and six bottles of water were provided.

img_0056
Bed

The king bed was slightly on the firm side but comfortable. There is a bench at the end of the bed. Additional water and chocolates were provided with turn down service.

img_0043
Table & Chair
img_0057
Welcome Amenity

To the left of the bed there is a chair and table. A fruit plate, bottle of water, and chocolates were given as an amenity.

img_0058
Welcome Letter

A Welcome Letter with the Regency Club hours was provided.

img_0044
Desk

The desk is spacious and provided a good working space.

img_0045
TV, Luggage Rack

Next to the desk, was a bench/dresser and luggage rack on the far side.

img_0575
Room View

The view from the room is not the most spectacular. There is a lot of construction going around in the area, with more casinos being built. It seems as if Manila is trying to become the next Macau.

I decided to have breakfast in the restaurant, The Café, each day.

img_0097
The Cafe

The Café has high ceilings and is artfully decorated. Tables are spaced a fair distance away from each other.

The buffet is divided into separate stations and provides many choices.

The Regency Club is on the small side, but was never very busy during my visit.

I decided to check out the club one morning to see what the breakfast spread looked like.

img_0110
Muesli, Fruit, Etc.

Another refrigerator had yogurt, cold cuts, fruit, and museli.

There was cereal, nuts, stewed fruit and dried fruit.

There was also bread, donuts and pastries.

img_0558
Espresso Machine

There is a coffee/espresso machine.

There was a table full of condiments.

The Pre-Dinner & Hors D’Oeuvres consisted cheese, bread, lomi, crudité, cold cuts, salad, sushi, and desserts.

One night consisted of chicken fingers, fish cake with lots of lemongrass and a sweet sauce, and a slider, which was on the cold side.

img_0560
Flourless Chocolate Cake

Dessert consisted of flourless chocolate cake.

The hotel also has shuttle service to and from SM Mall of Asia, which begins at 11:00 AM until 2:00 AM, departing every 30 minutes.

The gym is fairly spacious and has a decent selection of equipment.

Hyatt’s pool area is on the smaller side, but there is a gate that leads to a garden and the pool area of the Nobu Hotel, I believe.  There is an outdoor shower.  There is a decent sized Jacuzzi.  The garden area has a bar.

The only downside to the Hyatt City of Dreams Manila is its location.  It is kind of isolated. There really is not too much around the immediate vicinity.  The nearest metro station isn’t close either.  Grab is readily available and reasonably priced.

The staff was very friendly.  There is an attached casino to the hotel, and is accessible from the lobby.  There is also an attached mall in the complex, but it is not very big.  Most of the shops and restaurants seems to be on the higher end however.

I had a great stay here, and would not hesitate to stay here again when in Manila.

Hyatt Regency Indian Wells – Penthouse Suite

img_9577
Penthouse Suite

The renovated Penthouse Suite at the Hyatt Regency Indian Wells Resort & Spa is very subtle in nature. There have not been any major overhauls. The design remains largely the same.

img_9578
Coffee Maker

Upon entering the room, there is little nook on the right where the coffee maker is located, along with 2 complimentary bottles of water, and sink.

There is small fridge beneath the coffee maker.

img_9579
Guest Bathroom Sink
img_9580
Guest Bathroom Toilet

Next to the coffee nook, there is a half bathroom with a pedestal sink and toilet.

img_9581
Living Room
img_9582
Living Room

When walking straight after entering the room there is a living room with L-shaped sofa, coffee table and a small dining room table. Large window panes, along with a glass sliding glass door overlooks the golf course.

img_9583
Bed

The bed sits behind a set of double doors. The king bed is soft and comfortable. There is ample walking space on both sides of the bed. Oddly, the desk sits to one side of bed.

img_9584
Desk

The desk is rather small, and has an uncomfortable plastic chair.

img_9586
Night Stand
img_9602
Ear Plugs

The night stand on the other side of the bed contains a set of earplugs, which is a nice amenity. Sadly, only one set of earplugs are provided. They are somewhat uncomfortable however.

img_9587
Dresser/TV

There is a dresser near the bedroom door, on which the TV sits. The TV is on the smaller side for a suite, but does swivel to make viewing more comfortable from the bed.

img_9588
Bathroom Sinks

The bathroom is rather large, and contain double sinks with plenty of counter space.

img_9589
Tub

The bathtub is deep, and complimentary bath salts are provided.

img_9590

img_9594
Balcony

There is a large balcony, which is accessible from the bedroom as well as the living room. There is a wide lounge chair, regular chair, chaise lounge and coffee table.

img_9596
Regency Club

The Regency Club is normally closed during the summer. As a Hyatt Diamond member, I actually like this as I am given an extra 2,500 Hyatt Gold Passport points for the Regency Club being closed, and breakfast at Lantana.

img_9607
Hy-dration Station
img_9605
Hydration Station

There is also a “Hy-dration Station” located on this floor. A filtered water dispenser with both hot and cold water is a very nice touch. I was informed that there are several Hydration Stations throughout the resort. I think offering guests free water is a very nice touch, especially during the sweltering summer months. As hotels often charge $5+ for a bottle of water, this can save a lot of money during your stay.

img_9627
Cheese Plate

An Cheese Plate amenity was provided on one occasion.

img_9822
Fruit Plate

A fruit plate on another occasion.

img_9949
Cookies

My favorite amenity was a plate of their great chocolate chip cookies, cashews and a couple of Diet Cokes.
