Hyatt Regency in Incheon, South Korea

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Incheon, South Korea. This is what we thought:

We had one night’s stop over accommodation at the Hyatt Regency Incheon hotel in South Korea included as part of our airfare with Korean Airlines. Before arrival in Seoul we didn’t know where we were staying (accommodation is allocated on arrival) and I was a little nervous going to stay at an unknown venue with a baby in tow. I have to say I relaxed a little when we were told to get the shuttle bus to the Hyatt Regency. There was a huge queue at reception (about half a flight’s worth of passengers) but as soon as staff saw the baby and the pram we were waived ahead and promptly checked in. Once we got to the desk to check in the receptionist called housekeeping straight away and asked them to send a travel cot to our room.

The cot was delivered within minutes and the concierge called to make sure everything was satisfactory.

Dinner and breakfast were also included with our Korean Airlines package. We stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Incheon, South Korea. This is what we thought; Dinner was meant to be taken in the restaurant in the lobby but given we were travelling with a very tired baby (and were exhausted ourselves) the concierge bent the rules and kindly allowed us to order from the room service menu so we could do dinner, bath and bed for baby and mum and dad could still manage to get a meal in. The food was great and fast, there is a range of both Korean and Western options on the menu. The bathroom was gorgeous with a huge bathtub and robes provided. The bed was possibly the best I have ever slept in (although above mentioned exhaustion from the flight with bouncy baby could possibly have something to do with that.)

The travel cot was of high quality and there was plenty of crawling space in the room and the bed was big enough that all 3 of us fitted in comfortably when bub decided he needed to be nearer to his mum at somewhere around 4am.

Breakfast in the morning was great, eggs and hot food were cooked fresh for us, and there were plenty of options for all tastes and plenty of fresh fruit for the baby to have a nibble on.

Korean Airlines have a check in desk in the lobby which makes life much easier at the airport. It is also impossible to set foot in the lobby without a staff member asking if you need help or offering to help with a bag which is a lovely problem to have. Transfers to and from the airport are provided by the Hyatt shuttle bus and only take a few minutes.

The Hyatt Regency Incheon is possibly close to the best hotel I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in hundreds. I was initially concerned about taking a baby to stay in a Hyatt but we weren’t made to feel unwelcome at any stage and all of the staff we encountered were really very helpful.
