In addition to the iconic Park Hyatt Tokyo, Hyatt has now opened the second of three Park Hyatt hotels in Japan – the Park Hyatt Kyoto. As of today, October 31, it is open and ready for business!

The Park Hyatt brand is Hyatt’s luxury brand that has everything done with thoughtful care and design for a result that is beautiful, local, and luxurious without seeming ostentatious. In other words – it is the opposite of the Vegas-styled, gold-trimmed cookie cutter hotels.
I absolutely love staying at Park Hyatts for that refined and elevated stay and this new Park Hyatt Kyoto should add to that perfectly. Now, you can experience it for yourself with this 70-room hotel.
The Park Hyatt Kyoto is a Category 7 award hotel meaning it will cost 30,000 points per night. Cash rates are $650 on the low end and go quite a bit up from there. This means you should have no problem getting at least 2 cents per point for your stays at this property.
A cash and points stay will be 15,000 points and 50% of the cash rate (standard pricing) so you will still be paying quite a bit of cash. The better option is to buy Hyatt points when they go on sale and redeem for a full award. The good thing is that, for now, it appears that cash rates do include a western breakfast or Japanese breakfast (not sure if the award stays include that or not, but of course Globalists get the breakfast for free).
If you are a Globalist, it may not be that easy to get an upgrade at this property as there are only 9 suites in all and that includes 4 different kinds of suites. So, the base suite that would be eligible for upgrades may only have a couple available. Here is a look at the different suites available at the Park Hyatt Kyoto.
The next Park Hyatt to open in Japan will be another Category 7 and will open next year – the Park Hyatt Niseko Hanazono. That will bring a total of 3 Park Hyatt hotels to Japan. With the luxury touch of Park Hyatt and the incredible hospitality of Japan, I think those are winning combinations!
