Welcome to Tokyo Hyatt Fan!

However you happened to find it, welcome to my blog!

Until just a couple of years ago, I never thought of hotels as much more than a place to sleep.  Hotels were bases from which to head out for a day of fun adventures, or to prepare for a big business meeting.  Anything with four walls and a bed not crawling with roaches was acceptable, as the hotel was nothing but a transient stopping point, never the destination in and of itself.

That all changed a couple of years ago, when I received two free nights at any Hyatt in the world from a credit card promotion.  I wasn’t about to waste such an opportunity on a backwater airport hotel, so we went to the Park Hyatt Tokyo.  While I do speak the language, I did end up becoming Lost In Amazement, realizing for the first time what a first rate hotel has to offer.  Any thoughts of sightseeing vanished within seconds, and I spent the next 50 hours completely absorbed in my rooftop nirvana.  And when it was over, I had become…a Tokyo Hyatt Fan!

There are all sorts of blogs out there about travel and hotels, so for now I’m going to carve a very narrow niche in exploring the Hyatt hotels in Tokyo, one of the largest and most diverse cities in the world.  On June 11th, Tokyo will become the first and only city in the world to boast of having one of all of the top four brands of the Hyatt hotel chain:  the iconic Park Hyatt Tokyo, the crisp and neat Grand Hyatt Tokyo, the thrifty and dependable Hyatt Regency Tokyo, and the brand spanking new and exotic Andaz Tokyo.

The goal of the Tokyo Hyatt Fan is to not only introduce these fabulous establishments, all with their own unique charms and attractions, but to help you maximize your enjoyment at them.  How to get the best rates, how to choose the best rooms, how to find out about all sorts of things to enhance your stay that, until now, nobody has ever mentioned online.  Tokyo Hyatt Fan will go hardcore otaku into the world of Hyatt in Tokyo as best he can!

And who knows, maybe I will think of other things to talk about as well…

Anyway, whether you’re a kindred spirit or just curious, let’s have some fun!

  1. I’m now a fan of TokyoHyattFan! Can’t wait for your reviews on all the Hyatts in Tokyo! Ganbatte!

    • Thanks! You can also follow along via Twitter @TokyoHyattFan!

  2. Excellent resource! Though I hope you see fit to expand your blog to the rest of Japan at some point ;-)

    • Welcome, and thanks for the kind words! :)

      I will expand my comfort zone slightly by posting about Hyatt Regency Hakone in the near future.

  3. Actually, I think Shanghai was the first city to have all top tier Hyatts (Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Andaz and Hyatt on the Bund) since 2013.

    • Welcome! Hope you don’t mind me linking to your Grand Hyatt Tokyo review.

      That’s an interesting observation, but I think that Hyatt on the Bund is an extension of the “Hyatt” brand, not the “Hyatt Regency” brand. But if you have evidence to the contrary I will gladly amend my statement!

  4. Nice site!! I would love to hear more about Tokyo Hyatt as well as other nice properties in Japan!

    • Welcome Sai, and thanks for your warm comments!

      You’ll definitely hear more on the Tokyo Hyatts in the near future, and I might touch on some of the non-Hyatt luxury hotels that I have been to in Tokyo for completeness sake. :)

  5. Great resource, thank you. I will be in Tokyo at the end of November, staying at the Hyatt Regency (probably on points), so your blog is both timely and totally useful.

    Hope you include Kyoto, before November!

    • Welcome, and thanks for the comments!

      It’s unlikely that I’ll be in Kyoto before November, but maybe I’ll find some other way to cover that property for you. :)

  6. Hi, Tokyo Hyatt Fan! I just wanted to say thank you for this great blog. I absolutely love it! I have been reading since the beginning, but somehow have always postponed dropping a line. Your posts have made me a fan too, even though I haven’t had an opportunity to stay at any Hyatt yet. I wish I can take advantage of the Diamond challenge next year and try all your useful tips. Keep up the good work and greetings from Finland!

      • Hi again! Now, a little over a year later, I managed to get the Diamond status through Hyatt’s status match campaign. I have to read the whole blog all over again to take advantage of all your useful tips! Thanks once again for this blog and I hope you’ll have more posts coming in future!

        • Thanks for the kind words! Unfortunately, a lot has changed in the past year and a half, so a lot of the old tips and tricks are no longer valid.

          I should update this blog more often! Until then, check out my Twitter site @TokyoHyattFan for occasional tidbits.

          • You definitely should! Thanks, I’ll check out your Twitter site in the meanwhile!

  7. I wanted to thank you for this great read!! I absolutely loved every little
    bit of it. I have got you book marked to look at new
    stuff you post…
