Concierge.com's insider take:

A growing number of visitors to India's financial capital are choosing to stay within striking distance of the city's new business district, the Bandra-Kurla Complex, about an hour from downtown. The Grand Hyatt is the best luxury option nearby, with 547 plush, modern suites, a beautiful spa, and a top-notch martini bar that draws in wealthy patrons from across the city. Some of the finest examples of contemporary Indian art and sculpture adorn its Jaisalmer stone walls. But the real buzz is around China House, a decadent split-level nightspot with a Szechuan specialty restaurant upstairs and a basement lounge that pulls in movie stars who frolic in private enclosures, as regular-joe millionaires pretend to look away. However, the long row of tarpaulin-roofed houses facing the hotel from a distance are a reminder that this is a city of sometimes grotesque contrasts.

QA Test Grand Hyatt Mumbai. The Potsdamer Platz neighborhood, where this hotel sits, is judged by some to be soulless and overly commercial, and by others to be a hot spot for architecture. The buildings here, which include the corporate headquarters of Sony, Deutsche Bahn, DaimlerChrysler, and Germany's largest casino, are certainly designed to within an inch of their lives. But if you like that sort of thing, the 342-room Grand Hyatt, designed by Pritzker Prizewinner Josť Rafael Moneo, has quite a wow factor. The dramatic modern lobby has inverted crystalline pyramids descending from the ceiling that cause light and shadow to constantly change the look of the space. Meanwhile, the calming, clean-lined rooms are fitted with dark wood, suede, and gray-blue marble. Throughout the hotel and in the two restaurantsVox (with the city's largest open kitchen and a selection of more than 230 whiskeys) and Tizian (with a floating fireplace)Art Deco furnishings and black-and-white Bauhaus-era photographs warm up what could otherwise be a cold modern interior. The best place to take in all the architectural wonders of Potsdamer Platzand to decide whether or not you like itis the Grand Hyatt's top-floor fitness center and spa, with an outdoor terrace, an indoor pool, Finnish and steam saunas, and treatment rooms.
