Part 8: Highest Price, Least Beds, and Free Wireless Internet
I did a quick comparison between price and features of the Grand Hyatt Fukuoka, the Hyatt Regency Fukuoka, the Hilton Seahawk Fukuoka, the ANA Crowne Plaza Fukuoka and the Best Western Fukuoka Nakasu Inn (just for the fun of it), just to see what a catastrophe my mistake caused. And I can’t say I’m that depressed about it.
Grand Hyatt Fukuoka
The club lounge looks pretty good. I’m happy about the “Japanese flair” I see in the rooms, but while they ran out of standard/club twin rooms (I don’t really mind sharing a bed with my dad – pillows in the middle, no one cross that line!), at least there’s free WiFi to make up for it. Being booked in a club room not only compliments access to the lounge, it also gives me complimentary access to the pool (which, sadly, costs ¥2000 or ~HK$150). However, a tradeoff to this otherwise wonderful-sounding hotel is that the price is at a ridiculous HK$3350 (US$432)/night for the club room (which I guess is the only downside to the hotel).
