3. Grand Hyatt Chengdu

The Grand Hyatt Chengdu is a stunning hotel in Chengdu, and as you enter the lobby, you may be forgiven for thinking you have walked into a Park Hyatt rather than a Grand Hyatt. The foyer is simply stunning (although lacking in natural light) with lots of muted lighting, stylish lamps and cream sofas. If you like flower arrangements, which I do, they are utterly indulgent and enormous here. Facilities also include a decent gym with no views and a very stylish pool, an excellent spa as well as restaurants and bars.

This is a great hotel to select if you are a Globalist World of Hyatt member as the upgrades tend to be fairly generous here with lucky guests reporting on upgrades right up to a suite as well as a fruit plate welcome amenity.

Rooms are really nice here with great views and decor that is more like that of a Park Hyatt than a Grand Hyatt and toiletries from June Jacobs in the bathrooms.

If you are a Globalist you will get free club lounge access here, otherwise, you need to book a club room to gain access and exclusive privileges. Club Room guests automatically enjoy complimentary breakfast at the Grand Cafe on the lobby level (to 10.30 weekdays and 11am on weekends) which offers a glorious and extravagant array of buffet food from fruit to salad, smoked salmon to cold cuts, cereal to breads and of course hot options like eggs as well as Asian options.

You will also get access to the Grand Club Lounge on the 37th floor from 6.30am to 11pm. There is no breakfast in the club lounge but cocktails and “light bites” are 5.30 to 7.30 and you can enjoy soft drinks (warm and cold) and snacks throughout the day. The snacks are whole fruit, cake and cookies.

The evening food is more snacks than a full meal with crisps and tasty dips, almonds and mini quiches, loads of salad and cold cuts and cheese plus smoked salmon and a daily special like chicken on skewers. Pudding is a mix of cakes, fruit and creamy desserts. Alcohol is a full range of spirits, wines including Prosecco and beer.

The decor in the lounge is less Park Hyatt and more Grand Hyatt with restaurant-style seating around tables and high stools around benches and lots of mirrors on the walls.

Daily full breakfast for 2 per room
Welcome amenity
100 USD property credit per stay

There is a state-of-the-art fitness centre, indoor swimming pool (really smart and up on a high floor) and Spa.

The Marriott Chengdu Marriott Hotel Financial Centre is a Rewards Category 3 hotel so fairly cheap, whether you book on points or with cash.

11. Renaissance Chengdu Hotel

The Renaissance Chengdu Hotel enjoys incredible city views from their 29th floor bar and offers the Wanli Restaurant, serving some of the finest Cantonese and Sichuan dishes in town. If you’re visiting on business or pleasure, there are seven club floors which give you access to their club lounge, but this is not one of our top picks because it is not desperately luxurious and more of a business hotel, plus there have been reports of service being is subpar.
