Park Hyatt how does it compare to other luxury hotels

Discussion in 'Hyatt | Gold Passport' started by JohnBrian, May 14, 2014.  |  Print Topic

  1. I was wondering if Park Hyatt and Four Seasons or Peninsular are comparable in quality. I have joined Hyatt it was free but have no points . Is Hyatt membership good for getting rewards like how many nights would I need for PH Sydney? I was thinking Washington Chicago and New York I was not that impressed from a webpage view of the Fur Seasons in either of those!

    It's not Peninsular or Fur Seasons, although maybe the latter would be an appripriate name given their Canandian connections.

    To me a big difference is that PH tend to have very modern rooms but everything depends one the individual hotels that you're comparing.

    Sydney needs lots of points!

    I wouldn't say way less in quality.

    For example, at a recent stay in Chicago, I visited both the PH and its neighbor the Pen; I found the physical room quality to be the same (both are getting a little worn), and the Peninsula attention to personal detail, observed in prior stays, isn't as evident. What's more, as a diamond, you will get an upgrade to a room with a water tower/lake view at the PH, which is superior to any view you'll get at the Pen:

    The wise person (and, honestly, the not-even-very-wise-at-all person) doesn't need to ask!

    Wrong! As I'm sure you aleady know, Canada has not FUR seasons, but only TWO: Winter and July, although they do have a couple of almost similarly named hotels up in the boondocks.

    But you just admitted that FUR season lasts for eleven months up there.

    Correct finally! Yep, all the animules up here in the usually frozen northernly woods boondocks keep their furiness for a few months longer then in the swamps down southerly from here, even the fish up here grow a furrier coating of scales during the longer winter months from August to June.

    In Tokyo, I've stayed at the Mandarin Oriental, Peninsula, Shangri-la, Ritz-Carlton, the (former) Four Seasons Chinzanso, and The Park Hyatt.

    I think that the others have a much more luxurious feel overall (my order based on overall design would be Peninsula, MO, RC, Shangri-la, PHT, Chinzanso), where the Park Hyatt Tokyo really excels is in the intangibles like service. I'd compare the feel to The Raffles in Singapore; not the best place, but one that feels more important and historic.

    But I've been Diamond for my Park Hyatt stays, so perhaps that colors my experience.
