A block from Kowloon Park, in lively Tsim Sha Tsui neighborhood
The Hyatt Regency is conveniently located in the heart of the Tsim Sha Tsui neighborhood in Kowloon, an area known for its numerous attractions and wonderful shopping. The hotel itself is right on Nathan Road, one of the main shopping hubs in Kowloon, but there are also several attractions nearby, including the Kowloon Park and several museums. The Tsim Sha Tsui and Jordan MTR stations are both less than a 5-minute walk from the hotel.
A neighborhood of museums, historic temples, and shops, Kowloon attracts visitors throughout the year. The area is home to some of the world's largest malls, a lively nightlife, and Kowloon Park -- Hong Kong's version of Central Park. But it's not just shopping and partying in Kowloon. Many areas of the neighborhood have an authentic vibe, with all kinds of open-air markets -- flowers, jade, produce -- and historic buildings from before and during the time of the British occupation.
This hip 492-room luxury property is centrally located in hopping Tsim Sha Tsui. From the pool to the rooms and the spa, everything here has an almost futuristic touch: Think colorful lighting, straight lines, and a sleek design. Most rooms are decent-sized by Hong Kong standards, and all feature Bose iPod docks, LCD TVs, wireless keyboards, and "infotainment" units with Internet access and on-demand options. Marble bathrooms, though ultra-modern and squeaky clean, have clear glass walls, so those who want some privacy will have to pull down the blinds every time they step inside. The hotel boasts seven outstanding dining and dinking options -- two of which are Michelin-rated -- that range from upscale to casual. There's also a modern fitness center, and great services such as the use of cell phones provided during the stay.
