Another Hyatt hotel series is back! Hyatt brand is my next favorite brand after Marriott(as I am 95% loyal to the Bonvoy program), and last winter, I had an opportunity to stay at Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit.
The Winter season is the time when Mrs. White and my birthdays are close-by so I decided to pull off a birthday celebration for her. Deciding whether to celebrate at Marriott properties or others, one hotel caught me around the Sukhumvit area, Bangkok’s vibrant and busiest street.
Whenever I walk past the Nana station, there stood a tall building, named Hyatt Regency just before Sofitel Bangkok Sukhumvit. With a purple-themed imposing exterior, it always intrigued me to stay someday. (Technically, I was already staying at Courtyard by Marriott Bangkok and I am not going to have a full review here as the purpose of this stay was solely for a celebration. Hence, I will go over some features of the hotel only.
About Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit:
Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit is a relatively new hotel that opened in December 2018. Situated at bustling Sukhumvit Road, the hotel is linked to the BTS Nana station through a sky bridge offering a convenient way to explore Bangkok. malls and numerous attractions are located nearby where you can both walk or take a Skytrain.
Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit is also the fourth Hyatt property along the Sukhumvit road and the first Hyatt Regency brand in the Thai capital. The hotel is part of a 31-story, mixed-use development, which includes a luxurious condominium and retail shops all located inside the building. It houses 273 guestrooms, including 21 suites ranging from 377sqft ~ 2249sqft or 35sqm ~ 209sqm with every room featuring floor-to-ceiling windows for great city views.
A few aspects of this hotel are that all guestrooms are equipped with the Hyatt Mobile Entry technology, enabling guests to use smartphones alternately as a room key card. Moreover, each room also comes with a smartphone for guests to stay connected while exploring the city without getting lost.
Checking-In At Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit:
Mrs. White was still on her way to Bangkok and was scheduled to land late afternoon so I went to check-in in advance and decorate the room with the guest service teams.
At 3 PM, there were a lot of tourists and locals checking in, and took some time for me in line to get to my turn. The Check-in process was brief and quick as I booked a prepaid rate where the staff members just took my card for deposits and shortly gave me a room key assigned to room 2404.
Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit 1 King Bed:
I booked the most standard room which was 1 King Bedroom. The room is around 37sqm/400sqft in size equipped with a separate bathtub and walk-in shower. I really like the atmosphere of the room in warm, modern Thai décor with a mixture of wooden and marble layouts.
There were also plenty of power sockets, a USB and a couple of video ports. I am not sure if the HDMI port connects to the TV but if it does, then you can enjoy watching your favorite series and movies on a large screen. A small work table is positioned in the corner with different wall sockets.
As I mentioned above, my intent of this stay at Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit was to throw up a birthday celebration and I also wanted to know how different hotel properties’ guest service teams organize such a request from guests.
Whether I request decorations or housekeeping, I tend to stay out while the guest service team is in the room to avoid bothering them, but this time I helped decorate the room together with them as I had to wait for Mrs. White to arrive and it was raining heavily outside.
It was fun to have such an experience to help the staff members to exchange opinions and ideas on how to decorate the room. A big thank you to everyone who helped me set up the room as well as the cake and the letter!
