I introduce this hotel because it is the first and only international hotel in New Territories. As a result of its location, the room rate is comparatively cheap. A hotel room of same international brand name in the city centre can charge HK$2600 (about $335) per night, while it charges about HK$900 (about $116) only.
And the environment is very good, as the hotel faces Tolo Harbour, with rooms having either mountain or sea view.
I am talking about Hyatt Regency Hotel in Shatin.
The hotel is located adjacent to The Chinese University of Hong Kong, at the University Station along the East Rail line of MTR, close to Lowu. Transportation would be convenient, though going to Central or Wanchai may take a bit longer.
Obviously the hotel has close relationship with the University. Right, the hotel actually is kind of teaching hotel for the University’s School of Hotel and Tourism Management. The School and the hotel group Hyatt Hotel & Resort celebrated the hotel’s soft opening in February 2009. The hotel facilities are brand new.
The hotel is special in that it has 133 long-stay suites to cater for extended stay. Given the nice environment in the Chinese University, which has Hong Kong’s most beautiful campus, and the surrounding natural scenery, the facilities for long-stay is no surprise.
Btw, if you stay in this hotel, don’t forget to visit the Pavilion of Harmony in the Chinese University’s New Asia College.
