Bathed in natural light, my room was inviting and warm. The ceilings rose high, the oversized windows provided great views, but I didn’t actually end up staying in this room. Shortly after dinner, I desired a relaxing soak in the tub, however, the tub stopper was broken. Calling the front desk and expecting maintenance to quickly fix the stopper, I was surprised that the manager on duty insisted on relocating me to a different suite. My new room, which was on the 17th floor, lacked the tall ceilings and large windows of my former room, but it was significantly more plush, had a bar, balcony, a larger TV, and, of course, a working tub stopper.

The door to my new room opened onto a small tile landing with a closet.  The rest of the room extended about eight meters back, where a pair of chairs and a reading lamp were nestled by a row of windows, which overlooked the event space below. A door to the left of this reading corner lead to a small balcony, although because my suite was on the inside of the building, the balcony offered a small escape from the room but no fresh air.

The bathroom had separate bathing and washing spaces. The bathing area had an awkward layout with a tall towel-storage structure in the middle of the room between the toilet and tub, making the area appear smaller than it was. The mirror over the sink had a glowing LED frame, a nice touch.

The bar had a marble countertop and two bar stools, where I enjoyed room service one evening. A small area behind the counter provided access to a coffeemaker, fridge, and sink.

The king size Hyatt Grand Bed with pillow top mattress was very comfortable and provided me with uninterrupted sleep each of the three nights of my stay. In the past, I’ve had trouble sleeping in hotel rooms in downtown settings, but thanks to my room’s position on the inside of the hotel, street noise was well filtered out.

My suite was spacious but at the same time somewhat limited in space to get work done. The same dresser that supported the TV extended into a desk, but it all felt cramped, probably because of the TV’s monstrous size and that it encroached on the desk area. However, the desk light, ergonomic chair, abundant outlets, and fast and free Wi-Fi provided me with the essential ingredients for work productivity.
