Fodor's Review

This stylish hotel hovers over the auspicious Erawan Shrine. The impressive atrium, with an extensive modern art collection, soars four stories high to a glass roof. In the spacious rooms, the wood floors are strewn with tasteful rugs, the walls are hung with original art, and a desk and a couple of chairs are positioned directly in front of the bay windows. There are plenty of high-tech accoutrements, too. Baths have separate showers, oversize tubs, and private dressing

areas. The Italian fare at Spasso is especially creative; come for lunch even if you aren't staying here. There's also a lively nightclub. The Skytrain walkway system connects the hotel to many more places.

Great For the Price

This hotel is well worth the money, (I paid less than $150 a night), but it's not quite as luxurious as you would think. My room wasn't quite as spacious as I thought it would be and I ordered room service twice and both times had to call back and re-order because they had forgotten to put in my order. However, the building itself is beautiful and it's in a great location. If this weren't in Bangkok, where luxury hotels on the cheap abound, I would

highly recommend the Grand Hyatt. However, I think I may investigate more hotels before my next trip to Bangkok.

Try another 5 star

My first stay here was good, and the second stay became ok. Hyatt was not able to bring on the 5 star magic to encourage repeat stays. Room is smallish and the atmosphere & service fairly typical of a blah 5 star. And yes, the 2000 baht airport-hotel transfer is daylight robbery by bangkok standards

GP Diamond Member Disappointment

This hotel's management does the bear minimum in welcoming Hyatt elite status members. The management was not truthful in several interactions. The airport transfer was very expensive yet offers less in quality than other hotel transfers. There are many superior hotels in the area to this Hyatt. Caveat emptor!

High Style and Sophistication but Unpretentious and Genuine Thai Friendliness

New Year's eve 2001/2002: How central is this Hyatt? Well,it seems like the better part of Bangkok's 10 million wonderful people had congregated around it for live concerts, and happy mayhem. Rooms (Grand Club Floors) are a benchmark for user-friendliness. Bedside control (both sides!) of all lighting intensities, tv/stereo volumes,etc. Enthusiastic yet discreet service.
