    I wanted to start off by thanking everyone who answered my questions leading up to the stay! :)

    Having lived in the city, I had always wanted to try out Hyatt Regency Hangzhou. So when I returned a few weeks ago, I gave it a try.

    While the city boast some other high-end hotels like Shangri-la, Four Seasons, and JW Marriott, the Hyatt Regency probably has the most prime and accessible location. The property sits right across from the West Lake, and back sitting on a range of shops and restaurants.

    Wanting to maximize my experience, I applied a DSU to the stay. I was booked into a corner unit Regency Suite facing the lake.

    I'd elected red wine for the amenity, which was brought up while I was out. Some other snacks, and chocolates were also laid out alongside.

    Room
    The room which is listed as 57 sq meters, opens up to the "living room", with a walking closet to the side. Rather than a suite, the unit is designed more like a studio. Instead of two separate rooms, the bedroom is separated by a divider leaving a few inches towards the top.

    At the corner of the unit is the washroom, with the toilet in a separate room. There is a bath, and a shower. It was interesting when guest service came knocking to present a few pedals of an orchid for the bath.

    Breakfast
    Breakfast was included with the stay, with the option of dining in the Regency Club or the buffett on the first floor. I had alternate breakfast on both mornings to try out the two options.

    The Regency Club has a smaller selection, but you could order daily specials like dumplings or porridge to go with the fruits and pastries.

    The cafe on the first floor is a full-out buffet, with both Western and Asian options. It's a very sumptuous set of selections.

    Gym & Pool
    The gym & pool feels rather dated. The gym is a small room with the equipments cramped together. And I don't know if this is the standard in Hyatt hotels, but as I was the only one using the gym, a person from the hotel came in to keep an eye out. I'm guessing in case I needed help with the equipments.

    Overall
    The stay was comfortable, and the service provided was excellent. I really enjoy spending time in the Regency Club during its afternoon tea hours. It was never really crowded, which makes it a good alternative to lounge and get some work done.
