We stayed here for a week and loved it.
The Hyatt is a wonderful piece of modern Japanese architecture: it feels like a smaller place, combining the best aspects of traditional Japanese buildings and modern amenities: sleek design, huge glass windows opening onto Japanese gardens, lots of light-colored wood panels.
The rooms are in the same style, you feel you are really in Japan and not in some soul-less international hotel-chain behemoth.
The service is stellar, as is the Japanese standard. The concierge staff were always very helpful, making reservations, giving advice and providing maps and route descriptions for each destination we enquired about.
The three restaurants (reviewed separately) were all excellent: a traditional Japanese, an "international-type" grill and an Italian.
The location is also very convenient: across the street from the Kyoto National Museum and from one of the major temples, a 15min walk from the Gion neighborhood. It is 10min by taxi from the train station. I cannot think of a better place to stay in Kyoto.
