Grand Hyatt Mumbai
Travel Blogs from Mumbai (Bombay)
The hotel is nice, we definitely are easing our way into India and are very much inside of what they call the "business bubble". I enjoyed a wonderful breakfast of coffee pastries, an omelet, a fried potato cake, chicken sausage, mango yogurt and fresh pineapple (I was still hungry from eating airplane food for the past several meals).
You know what they say about the rain in Bombay? Well they lied. It doesnt fall gently on the plain. It falls in torrents. Warm, heavy and thick and not only falling on plains, but roads, tin roofs, blue tarps, cars and people. We only had two days in Mumbai but were excited to get to see the most populated city in India, second most in the world …
Traci, who has been to mumbai many times before, was our tour guide to the city. Today she took us to the Chor Bazaar or the Thieves Market. Yup. It's just like you imagined and worse! It's a maze of back alleys with people selling anything that they have "acquired". Some antiques and treasures. Lots of watches and car parts. Most of the shops were …
Our last day in Mumbai. Check out was not until 3pm and we took full advantage of it. We did not have to be at the airport until 12midnite so we rested up in our rooms before we headed out. After we checked out and stored our bags , we went to the "museum" as it is referred to or It was the called the Prince of Wales Museum, it now has a Native …
It's my birthday! Our last day of work at the Studio. We were very excited to finish up a day early! We went out to dinner with the Studio owners and the production leads at Olive- A mediterraean restaurant. It doubles as a fancy water hole. As the night progressed the music got louder and louder. It was delicious food and good to be outside of the …

Historical Traveler Reviews Grand Hyatt Mumbai Mumbai (Bombay)
The Grand Hyatt is one of the best hotels I've stayed in and I've stayed in hotels all across North America. The hotel is very large, clean, the service is outstanding. The hotel is about 15 minutes from the airport, 15 minutes from Juhu beach and 30 minutes from downtown Mumbai. Renting a car for your trip at the airport is the best thing to do to get around as it is much more affordable then renting from the hotel and there is a set rate for 8 hours. The spa at the hotel is so amazing and the massages are great. I will definitely be staying here again.
A grand Experience
One of the best hotel I have stayed may be second to The Taj Fort Aguada.
Found the interiors to be very modern,and especially the window blind,when in the morning needn;t get up from my bed to have the daylight in..
the food was not that good.But definately an excellent place for business travellers.
the bathroom was also quite exclusive.
As a suggestion need to have a better TV in the room.
I stayed for 3 days and each moment of it was memorable.
Short: want to have some boring, quiet days OR are only visiting for business and need good facilities this is the right spot. Give it a miss if you go for a holiday trip. For the same money there a better hotels around at a prime locations.
The Grand Hyatt??????????
I stayed at the Grand Hyatt a couple of times....and this review is based on the other 5 stars I have stayed in India. The Grand is as cold as it gets..the staff do not smile and I am not sure they will even if we tickle them...the rooms, decor, etc are minimalistic in true Grand style but it feels like staying in a monastery. The F&B is a rip-off in terms of quality and VFM. And finally, I did write my feedback to the GM and expected a reply but I guess he's too busy teaching his staff to keep a stiff upper lip!
Stayed at this Hotel in March 2005 and spent 2 nights on the First Leg of my India business trip. After flying overnight from London I was met immediately at Mumbai Airport by the Hotel's Limo(A brand new Toyota), fully aircon and leather interiors. I was offered a bottle of Water and an english language business newspaper just as i was making myself comfortable. Nice start and made a good impression.
You could be anywhere. As an escape from the human zoo of Mumbai, the Grand Hyatt does a fine job. But perhaps it does it a little too well. Or maybe I now realize that its style is just too minimalist for me (having previously stayed at the colonial Taj Mahal at the other end of town). But all mod cons are contained in a large, comfortable room with sumptuous bathroom. Also can't fault the staff who are friendly and helpful. Room service expensive, but nicely presented and good enough. Referring to earlier comments, I hired a driver for the day: price was approx. 2000 rupees for first 4 hours, then 450 per hour. Taxis are of course much cheaper, but not as plush and maybe not air conditioned - take your chances. Location for my business meetings was crucial; it can take literally hours to go from one end of Mumbai to the other. Proximity to airports a major plus.
A grand Hotel
A new & very Good Hotel Near Domestic Airport. Food Also good. But the way to Hotel Passing through a huge Slum area. So, in night time it may be danger to go out. They Should do some thing. Also next day we went to their sister concern Hotel Hyatt Regency was surounded by slum area. We think that whole Mumbai is a big slum as earlier we heard that Mumbai has a asia's largest slum.
Loved the Grand Hyatt
I really liked the Grand Hyatt, it was very new and clean! I thought that the resturants were really good, but a bit expensive. The service and the food there was phenomenal. The only thing is that the hotel charged me $200 for a taxi into town, when the taxi ride back was only $40. The transportation is a rip-off so walk outside the hotel and catch a cab or autorickshaw for less! Overall, I would def stay at the Grand Hyatt again, it was one of the higlights of my trip.
New and modern
I stayed at the Grand Hyatt in November 2004, shortly after the hotel opened. The rooms are very modern, with light wood paneling and big pleated shades on the windows. The hotel seems huge, with a large open lobby, several restaurants and expansive grounds. Overall the property itself is really nice, but the service was not up to the standards I would expect from a Grand Hyatt. The front desk staff seemed confused and the service at the restaurants was very slow. This may be a reflection of the fact the hotel is so new, and perhaps service will improve as the staff gains more experience.
