TAIPEI, TAIWAN—The Grand Hyatt Taipei is celebrating its relaunch April 23 after a top-to-bottom renovation that fleshed out the hotel from its concrete bones. As part of the redo, each of the property’s 853 rooms and suites was stripped to the fundamentals, redesigned and rebuilt.
“With this relaunch, in terms of rooms and restaurants, we’re now a brand-new property,” stated Kai Speth, the hotel’s general manager. “But with a 25-year history in this same location, we’re also the most seasoned hotel in the city. We’ve got the best of both worlds.”
According to the company, baths include marble, sophisticated lighting, muted colors, goose-down duvets, deep-soaking tubs, ample windows and textured walls. The hotel’s guestrooms range in size from 355 to 431 sq. ft. at the grand deluxe level to more than 890 sq. ft. in an executive suite. The new presidential suite commands more than 2,375 sq. ft. and offers views of the iconic Taipei 101 Tower.
