Best Hyatt Club Lounges for Explorist Club Lounge Access Awards

Best Hyatt Club Lounges for Explorist Club Access Award


What are the Best Hyatt Club Lounges to Use Hyatt Explorist Club Lounge Access Awards at? It should come as no surprise, to those who have traveled much in Asia, that the best ones are in Asia, where both the properties and level of service tend to be superior to Hyatt's properties in the U.S. and elsewhere in the world.

This is not to say that the Hyatt Club Lounges are the best in their cities; I preferred the Four Seasons Hong Kong Executive Club Lounge and Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Club Lounge to the Grand Hyatt Hong Kong Club Lounge, for example. But if your travel plans include the properties below, I'd recommend using your Explorist Club Lounge Access awards for them. Don't forget that if you currently have M Life Gold status, you can re-match back to World of Hyatt Explorist so that it expires 2/28/19. First log into M Life Gold and Hyatt, then go to this link in order to re-match. It may say you're already matched, but log out and log in again to check you have status until 2019 (HT: Reddit).

Don't forget that some of these Hyatt properties are also Virtuoso members; TravelSort Clients can enjoy Virtuoso benefits on paid Virtuoso reservations.

1. Grand Hyatt Hong Kong

The Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, particularly the Grand Club Lounge, is very good objectively, but it's in a city with stiff competition (see Best Luxury Hotel Cities) so it's overshadowed by the Four Seasons Hong Kong, the Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong Club Lounge, and for those who prefer smaller boutique properties, The Upper House. Nevertheless, for many Hyatt loyalists it's their favorite Hyatt Grand Club Lounge.

2. Grand Hyatt Tokyo

The Grand Hyatt Tokyo is located in Roppongi, about a 15 minute drive from Tokyo Station and close to many restaurants and shops. It's also a short walk to the Mori Art Museum and Sakurazaka Park. The Grand Club Lounge is open 7am-10pm, and serves breakfast 7-10:30am and evening cocktails and hors d'oeuvres from 5:30-7:30pm, daily.

3. Grand Hyatt Taipei

The Grand Hyatt Taipei is particularly convenient if you're in Taipei for an event at the Taipei World Trade Center or Convention Center, which are right next to the hotel. The hotel is about 30 miles from Taipei Airport, about a 45 minute drive, so it could also be an option on an overnight layover when flying EVA Air, whose hub is Taipei.

5. Grand Hyatt Beijing

While clients have enjoyed Rosewood Beijing's Manor Club Lounge much more, the Grand Hyatt Beijing does have a Club Lounge and it's a good use of a Club Lounge Access Award if you'll be in Beijing anyway.

Can I Apply the Hyatt Explorist Club Lounge Access Award to Any Stay?

No; the stay must be booked at an eligible paid rate, or be an award stay using points or points & cash. It can't be a category 1-4 free anniversary night, 5 brand free night award, or any other type of promotional award night.

How Long Are the Hyatt Club Lounge Access Awards Valid?

Each award is valid for 1 year from the date of issuance.

Does the Club Lounge Access Award Also Entitle Me to an Upgrade to a Club Room?

No; it gives you access to the club lounge. It's at the property's discretion whether they give you a club room or not.
