Modern, business-friendly hotel connected to the Taipei World Trade Center and just steps from Taipei 101. Perks like in-room yoga, trendy restaurants, and a heated pool cater to a fashionable tourist crowd, but the extensive club-level facilities (including top-floor residential suites favored by long-stay business travelers) and stellar business services draw a mainly suit-and-tie set.

WHY WE LIKE IT
The location and the business-friendly perks make this ideal when in town for work. That said, it’s not a bad spot to cut loose, either; there’s an impressive spread of restaurants and great shopping at nearby Taipei 101 and ATT 4 Fun.
AMENITY WE LOVE
The top-notch fitness centers.
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
The fees for extras like Wi-Fi and breakfast.
GOOD TO KNOW
Meeting and event facilities for groups of 8-1,200 are available, including the “Grand Residence,” a unique, residential-style venue. The business center offers secretarial services, conference room rentals, printing services, interpretation/translation services, and a business reference library. The Grand Hyatt kids’ club provides an array of amenities and activites for the under-12 set. Though the hotel is built on a former Japanese execution ground (there’s a memorial to this in the park across the street), Hyatt has invested heavily in feng shui treatments for the building to allay any concerns about hauntings.
