Bottom Line

The 381-room Hyatt Regency sits atop a six-story shopping mall in the heart of Tsim Sha Tsui, a popular tourist area known for its museums, historic sights, and shops. The Hyatt Regency has everything one would expect to find in an upscale chain hotel: contemporary rooms with plush beds, marble bathrooms, and high-tech amenities; both casual and fine dining options; and an attractive pool. Spectacular vistas of Victoria Harbour and Hong Kong Island can be viewed from some guest rooms, the gym, and a few common areas. All in all, the property is a great luxury pick, though it lacks a spa. Also, fees for Internet and parking may leave some guests feeling nickel-and-dimed.

Map of Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, Tsim Sha Tsui

The Hyatt Regency is conveniently located in the heart of the Tsim Sha Tsui area of Kowloon, which is known for its numerous attractions and stores. The hotel itself is a shopping destination, as it sits atop a six-story mall in one of the tallest skyscrapers in the area. Cabs and MTR stations can be accessed via the property's basement level, though various tourist spots can be reached on foot, such as the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Hong Kong Museum of History. For a leisurely stroll along the waterfront, check out the Avenue of the Stars. Known as Hong Kong's version of Hollywood's Walk of Fame, this happening promenade is a favorite among camera-toting tourists, with people lining up to pose with a bronze likeness of Bruce Lee and other popular statues.

A neighborhood of museums, historic temples, and shops, Kowloon attracts visitors throughout the year. Literally meaning "nine dragons," which stands for the eight hills in the area and the Chinese emperor, Kowloon is one of the most densely populated neighborhoods in Hong Kong -- an already over-populated city. With the constant influx of tourists, the crowds continue to grow even larger.

Kowloon 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 Kowloon 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. Kowloon is also home to important museums such as the Hong Kong Museum of Art and the Hong Kong Museum of History.
