The brand new Park Hyatt Shenzhen perfects luxury high above southeastern China’s Silicon Valley. When given the opportunity to review the property, I couldn’t pass it up.
Getting to the Park Hyatt Shenzhen from Hong Kong
It’s no secret that Chinese visaholders visiting Hong Kong can enhance their experience by staying across the border. It’s not ideal for every visit but with high speed train service to Kowloon in Hong Kong from Shenzhen and Guangzhou, it’s far more feasible to stay in China and commute to Hong Kong.
I covered crossing the border via Hong Kong’s MTR in a previous post, I did the same on this visit. However, I thought the hotel was a close enough walk from the station so I did so. It’s not. Don’t do that.
Also, the building it occupies is next to a very large tower, but it was made clear, it’s not in the “big building”, it was in the much smaller buidling (picture taken from my suite on the 39th floor.)

Head to Shenzhen and check out the technology malls.
The property occupies about a dozen floors at the top the Ping’an Center. There is a private driveway entrance where bell staff will escort you to the elevators up to reception on the 33rd floor. Design of the property can only be described as exquisite. I loved the decorative oversized chops that reminded me of getting one made with our daughter.
The hotel has several restaurants including a casual dining restaurant, the Living Room. I’ll cover the Glass House in the breakfast section.
I was upgraded as a Hyatt Globalist for my one-night stay. I loved my suite and even though I was alone, the extra space and separation is always appreciated. Consistent with other Park Hyatts in Asia, I was welcomed with a treat and a letter form the management, and the room was set to turn on the lights and open the shades upon opening the door.
Plenty of space with a wrap around couch, lounging chairs and separate dining area at the windows and a mini-bar with Nespresso coffee. The living room has its own guest bathroom as well.
The bedroom was spacious, had closed doors to separate sleeping spaces and offer privacy from the living room. The space was more than adequate, a pair of lit wardrobes glowed when the doors opened. It was a comfortable mattress and a refreshing morning.
The bathrooms were separated into three areas. The guest bathroom, just inside the entry hallway, featured a Japanese bidet toilet. Behind the doors separating the public and private spaces, the toilet was held in a separate water closet identical to the guest bathroom. The shower, vanities and soaking tub were in another room with floor to ceiling white marble.
Le Labo bath amenities match the attention to detail this property imposed upon every facet of the guest experience.
The 47th floor is home to the beautiful Glass House. In the evenings, the restaurant offers western options with Chinese influences, for breakfast, Globalists may enjoy menu items, buffet or both. The food was absolutely perfect.
This property is an exceptional value for money. Cash rates fluctuate between $200-250/night and award nights start at just 15,000 points, eligible for Category 1-4 redemptions. Service was excellent, many spoke a variety of languages including Cantonese, Mandarin, English, and Japanese amongst others. When returning to Shenzhen I can’t imagine staying anywhere else.
