In mid June, I stayed at the Hyatt Regency in Dusseldorf, Germany. The hotel is roughly 4.6 miles from the Dusseldorf international airport. By car, the hotel is a 13 minute drive from the airport. The hotel is not in the main city area of Dusseldorf, but rather is located at the edge of the city by the Rhine river.
You can reach the main part of the city in a 10 to 20 minute walk along the side of the river or you can walk about 10 minutes in the other direction to a tram or bus station which will take you into the center of the city. Taxis are available for pickup at the hotel or they can be hailed on the street located over the Rhine river bridge at the hotel.
I arrived in Dusseldorf from a business class flight on HiFly airlines.
See my video review below:

Booking the Hotel
I originally booked the room as a king room for four nights. I paid for the hotel with the Citi Prestige credit card which reimburses the 4th night free for any hotel paid for with the credit card. Because I’m a Hyatt Diamond member, I was upgraded to the Club King room. Hyatt Diamond members receive 4 complementary suite upgrades per year which is what I used to upgrade to the Regency Suite King.
Suite King Room
The room was located on the 15th floor. Standard rooms are 32 sq meters and the Regency Suite King was 72 sq meters. The suite included a living room with separate work area, guest bathroom, king bedroom, master bathroom, and floor to ceiling windows with views of the Rhine river. The master bathroom included a walk-in rain shower, separate bathtub and granite counters.
There were 2 TVs, one in the living room and one in the bedroom, as well as complimentary premium internet access. Additional notable amenities included: complimentary fresh fruit & mineral water, DVD player, coffee machine, and access to the Regency Club on the 18th floor.
The Regency suite was almost like a small apartment. The view was incredible, the room was clean and modern, you would have had to look pretty hard to find something to complain about.
The Hyatt Regency Club is located on the 18th floor and is only available to Diamond members or guests that pay for a room with club level access (Club King room). The Regency Club offers complimentary continental breakfast, hot beverages, and soft drinks throughout the day. In the evening there is complimentary wine, beer, and light appetizers. The view from the 18th floor overlooked the Rhine river and was pretty amazing.
Hyatt Diamond members receive complementary breakfast from the hotel only when a club lounge is not available. Although there was a Regency Club at the the hotel, I still received complimentary breakfast at the buffet, but it was a courtesy from the hotel since they weren’t obligated.
The breakfast buffet was very good. The buffet included a large spread of food which included an omelet station, a large selection of hot food, fruits, yogurts, pastries, juice, and coffee. The only thing I didn’t see was pancakes or waffles, but I’m sure they could have been ordered if I had asked.
Rive Spa & Gym
The hotel spa has a full range of treatments in a very modern facility. The gym is located on the right side of the main spa entrance. The gym was clean and there was a good selection of basic cardio equipment with enough machines to go around in case there was a crowd. Strength training equipment included a selection of free weights and a few machines.
- Really nice modern business style hotel.
- Diamond members are treated well.
- Suite upgrades are honored at this property.
- Regency king suite was impressive.
- Most of the hotel staff understood and could speak English.
- Really nice views of the city from the hotel.
- The hotel is not directly in the main section of the city so you have to walk about 15 to 20 minutes along the river to get there.
- There is no ATM on the property. The closest ATM is a ten minute walk from the property.
- Going back and forth to the city by taxi can get expensive.
The Hyatt Regency Dusseldorf is a really nice, well maintained business hotel that treats Diamond members very well. Although the hotel is not directly in the main center of the city, you can reach the downtown area with a short walk across the Rhine river or by heading in the other direction to a tram or a bus.
