Take the subway and you are right below the hotel. Very convenient. Though you have to walk through a tunnel if you come in on the number 10 line. Take a taxi? Forget it. You better know how to explain how to get to the hotel or have the number for the driver to call. Even then, he probably won't find the entrance. Worst design for an entrance to a hotel I've ever seen. Plus, there are no regular taxi's waiting. They have a private taxi that does not use the meter. I used it once and coming back with a regular city taxi found out it was only 2 Yuan more. However, that was on a short ride. So hard to say. I don't like not knowing if I got ripped off or not. The area itself is close to everything and not in a remote location. So that's good. It would help if the building had a Hyatt sign on it.
That being said, the hotel itself is top notch. Everyone speaks perfect English and is very friendly. I asked if I could get an upgrade to a corner room and did! Much larger room than the regular one with great views all around. The room is amazing. Shower and tub that look over the city. Japanese style toilet that sprays water in more places than I needed and then has a dryer to boot. Heated seat is very nice though, even opens up automatically.
Nice hardwood floors that were not slippery. Controls for everything. Had to ask to find out you have to hold the blind switch to get them to raise after closing. Nice espresso coffee maker. Very nice bed.
Never made it to the pool or gym so I can't comment on it. Only stayed one night.
As other's have said, the elevators are a pain. If you come into the hotel from the ground level and go to your room, you must go up before you go down. Then to go to the bar/restaurant it's two elevators again! Little silly just to show off the 63rd floor check in!
Would I stay here again? Probably not. The hassles with the taxi's when not using the subway is just not worth it. Now if you JUST use the subway, you are in a GREAT location. However, those damn subway's are ALWAYS crowded and it gets old after awhile being locked in a sardine can.
