I recently returned from a trip to Bangkok that included stays in three different Hyatt hotels. I’ve also stayed at Bangkok’s fourth Hyatt on multiple occasions. Which Hyatt in Bangkok is best?
Best Hyatt In Bangkok
Bangkok is home to four Hyatt properties, including:
- Hyatt Place
- Hyatt Regency
- Grand Hyatt Erawan
- Park Hyatt
I’ll offer my thoughts on each property and then identify which one I think is best.
Hyatt Place Bangkok Sukhumvit
In theory, this is Hyatt’s budget property in Bangkok and offers comfortable accommodations with less amenities than the other Hyatt hotels in the city. It is conveniently located near the Phrom Phong BTS station. A rooftop bar and fitness center are available as well as a 24/7 market in the lobby with a wide variety of food and drinks for purchase. Complimentary breakfast is included for all guests, but I have found the quality of it to be far behind that of the other Hyatts (though that is hardly a surprise). This hotel is currently selling for under $50/night, which makes it a particularly attractive place to qualify for World of Hyatt elite status.

Hyatt Regency Bangkok Sukhumvit
This is a flashy and modern new hotel located in the heart of the city near Nana BTS. The hotel has a fresh and modern feel, though I’m not sure how well it will age. Staff is kind and the rooms are spacious. If you are assigned a high level room, you have a great view of the city. Regency Club guests enjoy a comfortable lounge with a generous a la carte menu. The breakfast spread is large. This hotel usually costs more than the Grand Hyatt but always less than the Park Hyatt. There is a steam room, but no sauna. The fitness center is large.

Park Hyatt Bangkok
Located in Central Embassy, this flagship hotel for Hyatt has beautiful common areas and a spectacular dining room and bar. The pool is gorgeous and breakfast is a treat. Rooms are modern and minimalist and the hotel features a great fitness center and wellness area.

Grand Hyatt Bangkok Erawan
The ornate lobby filled with trees and the sound of running water transforms you from the busy Bangkok streets to a tranquil oasis. Rooms are showing their age, but well-maintained and well-appointed. The fitness center has been modernized and the spa quite attractive. A large outdoor pools is family friendly. Grand Club guests enjoy a treat each night, with excellent service and a huge spread of food more than sufficient for a meal (though do branch out and try some food outside the hotel). Breakfast is also a treat, with a wide selection of food from around the world and great coffee. The hotel also features a number of restaurants and bars on the underground level.

My Favorite: Grand Hyatt
While I have no data-driven explanation for naming the Grand Hyatt Erawan my favorite in the city, there were many things I loved at this hotel that I found better than the others, including:
- Service (staff were so incredibly friendly here I was just amazed)
- Lounge (better lounge than the Regency and the Park and Place don’t have lounges)
I’d rank the Park Hyatt next, followed by Hyatt Regency, followed by Hyatt Place.
The good news is that I don’t think you can go wrong at any Hyatt in Bangkok. While all have their selling points, my favorite overall Hyatt property in Bangkok is the Grand Hyatt Erawan.
