Normally I don’t write about hotel offers, but when it involves one of my favorite properties I’ll make an exception.

In an email that I received today from the Hyatt Regency Hong Kong (Tsim Sha Tsui / Kowloon),  they are offering what they refer to as a Winter Celebration package.   Bundled in this package are a few perks and amenities that you normally would pay for.

The package covers any stay between November 1, 2014 and February 28, 2015 and includes these benefits:


A full Breakfast Buffet at the hotel’s Cafe for each day of your stay.

One MTR (Metro Transit) Day card per guest per stay.

Discount Coupons for the K11 Mall (The hotel is attached to it).

Complimentary non-alcoholic beverages and snacks from your minibar.


Summed up, the value of the perks is fairly attractive.   Just the minibar snacks, soda and water alone can add quite a bit to a bill, especially if staying for a few days.    I’ve eaten Breakfast several times in the Cafe and have no complaints, they provide a large variety of options….both Chinese and International choices.   The MTR card is a great convenience and the discount coupons to the mall can be useful since the Mall has several good stores, including a large grocery store.  An additional benefit to staying at this property is that the hotel will PROVIDE YOU with a cell phone for you to use during your stay with unlimited local calling and data access.   Its the only hotel that I’ve stayed at that offers this convenience  and it saves me quite a bit of money that would be spent on prepaid sim cards for my phone.

We’ve stayed at the Regency twice a year for the last 3 years and have had great experiences each time.   I already have my annual Hong Kong Plane Spotting Pilgrimage booked and am taking advantage of their promo.

The staff is extremely friendly and gracious, and the hotel’s proximity to fantastic shopping and convenient transportation options make it a desirable place to stay while visiting HKG.   ‘2 thumbs up’ for this place!
