Pamper yourself silly
When I was approaching the hotel from a distance, the glimpse of the hotel doesn't gives me the Wow feeling as the exterior was rather plain and simple. I started to feel a little disappointed...
But not for long.
Once I had cleared the security checks at the hotel lobby entrance and step into the building, I heaved a sigh of relieve. The lobby was spacious and the decor, color and lights portray a warm atmosphere. I couldn't wait to check out the room.
When I entered the room, I was immediately impressed without any hesitation. With a modern design concept, the room was very spacious and tastefully decked in leather, glass and wood parquet.
Check out the photos which I took with my phone camera. Enough said.
Everything was clean and new and I found out the hotel was only 5 years old. Service was very good and up-to-par with a 6-Star hotel. The staff spoke very good English and always ready with a smile. The hotel gym was pretty large and very well-eqipped. Most of the guest were obviously there for a business trip, so that translate into a pretty empty gym and a almost-exclusive swimming pool during the daytime. Food was good with plentiful of selection.
Location wise, it's only a 5 minutes drive to the international and domestic airport but a good an hour and a half drive to the commercial hub, partly due to the extremely bad and heavy traffic especially during peak hours in the morning, noon and evening. It will be wise to budget enough time if you need to travel to your office from the hotel.
To wrap it up, this is definitely one of the best hotel that I had stayed during my trip in India and would strongly recommend it if price (and distance) is not much of a concern.
Superb Service, Superb Hotel
The Hyatt Regency in Mumbai is a fantastic place to stay if you want to be away from the hustle and bustle of Mumbais busy streets. The service here is top class, and the food is awesome. The atmosphere is peaceful, the staff are first class, there is an outdoor pool, health club and gym, and I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to be away from it all - not so sure if it is suited to families, more for couples and business I think. The hotel is a mere 5 mins drive from Mumbai airport. The only downside is that you are 1 hours drive away from Colado where the main tourist attractions are, but you can always hire a car and a very knowledgeable helpful driver for the day who will happily take you everywhere you want to go. You can then return to the tranquil calm of the hotel and enjoy a wonderful evening meal and excellent facilities. Its not cheap, but I will definitely stay here again.
I stayed here on the executive floor for 5 days and found it to be a great hotel. For only a small amount more, the upgrade to exec level is well worth it. The seperate reception, the free drinks, the helpful staff made it all worth it.
The hotel appears to be primarily a business hotel but that didn't detract from it. It only means that the pool and spa (during the day) were empty! The restaurants were great but don't just stay in the hotel, it's easy to get out out into a taxi and explore other areas - Bandra is especially good.
I suppose a downside to the hotel is its location - its a good hour drive into the centre of Mumbai and the sights such as Gateway to India etc, although it means that you are very close to the airport and not far from the beach!!
One other thing, with the local taxis, get them to state a price and stick to it, on more than one occassion, the taxi drivers would try and push the price up once they had realised we had bought a coffee table and then went to a great restaurant - Olive Bar and Kichen in Kara. Don't be intimidated and let them know you will report them to the hotel if necessary. They are only trying their luck.
Great place to stay in Mumbai
We stayed here 2 nights after three grueling weeks traveling India. After coming from Varanasi, the Hyatt was seventh heaven. We were upgraded to the Concierge Level. My wife and I quickly sign up for a 1 hr massage (about $30/ea) while the kids swam in the pool. The food was excellent, the staff friendly and accomodating. The hotel is VERY close to the international airport. Nice for early morning departures.

This new hotel is done in a very moderne, yet retro, 60's style reminiscent of Dulles Airport. It works. It is all glass and stone, located about 20 minutes from both the international and domestic airport terminals. It is not near downtown Bombay, which with the traffic can take as long as an hour and a half to get to. If an elegant, traditional South Asian look is more your style, try the Sheraton next door. We had a delicious meal at the South Indian style restaurant there.
The rooms are reasonably sized. They have large marble and glass bathrooms with an impressive sunken shower area with both conventional and "rain" style shower heads.
There is a small pleasant pool area and several excellent restaurants. It is definitely more of a business hotel than a tourist or couples place. But if you arrive from abroad at the usual ungodly hour preferred in South Asia, it is a good place to collapse for a day before heading into town. It is highly efficient and arranges transportation quickly and at reasonable rates.
Rooms have WI-FI internet access, though it is egregiously expensive, as it seems to be everywhere in India.
The lap of luxury
I stayed at the Mumbai Hyatt in October 2005. I have to say, it was one of the nicest places I've stayed in. The bed was to die for comfortable and the bathroom was beautiful. There is a lack of hot water if you like really hot showers (but I didn't find anywhere in India with hot water) The service is attentive and the breakfast was decent.
New hotel, great lobby. Rooms are very comfortable and well layed out. All in all an outstanding place to stay.
Great hotel, super location, helpful staff
Very nice hotel. Room was comtemporary, clean and comfortable. Great lounge area. Close to airport. Friendly, helpful staff. I would definitely stay here again for travel to/from Mumbai, especially with time constrained travel that did not permit me to stay in downtown.
One of the nicest hotels ever
We stayed in the Mumbai Hyatt on the last night of a 3 week trip to India. We got a good deal on a club room which included airport transfers. We were picked up at the airport bang on time in a large new air conditioned car which was very welcome when the teperature was 35 degrees. The hotel is beautiful, the service exemplary and the club lounge has great complimentary food and drink. My only regret is that we could only stay one night and had to leave the next day at 4am.
Truly an experience to remember
Stay here, this hotel has everything to ask for and more. Of course you are in Mumbai where there's not much to do. But the hotel makes up for it. From the rooms to the facilities. The staff are truly world class. Jamie Footner is the Director of rooms and she has trained her staff to a point where is like a well olied machine. The Restaurants are headed by Mr Deepak & Mr Hermatt, the food is unbelieveable.
My review is 5star

... for 35 minutes or so they compared symptoms, cures, durations of illnesses and how long it would take for a complete recovery. At the end of this discussion, both men had talked themselves in to a relapse and after breakfast Martin did look awful and had to have a lie down. I on the other hand was feeling quite perky so decided to wander around the ship until I found a nice quiet spot to catch up on some reading and blogging. I ...
Our last group outing was to the caves of Elaphanta Island, an hour boat ride away. It was a fitting way to end the tour since the massive stone panels illustrated the biography of Shiva, about whom we have heard for the past three weeks. The sculptures were created somewhere between the 5th and 6th century and suffered significant damage at the hands of the Portuguese in the 16th century. Nonetheless, the massive sculptures, carved in place within ...

There were also business that only concentrated on one part of the recycle process. They would then pass their finished product on to another business who would take the product to the next level of recycling. A very impressive system.
After we worked our way through the commercial side looking at many different business we walked across the road and ...

So it was a hot shower and then a meal and I got my head down, 3 am came too quick, I went down and woke up what I thought would be my taxi to the airport, instead it was the guy on reception, he was going to take me on his scooter, now this would be fun, me with my Bergen and him with my ...

We then went for a massive walk around Colaba and looked at all the cool buildings, and pretended to be Indian tour guides, it was about 7pm but still really hot. We left Manuel and Nora and took a trip to Starbucks. They had 16 people working behind the coffee counter, they were having so much fun and not busy at all, shows how cheap labour is!
