Chandigarh is a modern, beautiful city that is neatly divided into sectors and colonies and is the capital of two Indian states, Punjab as well as Haryana.Over the years, Chandigarh has become a hub of education, business, leisure, and entertainment. Chandigarh is also the closest major city to important tourist towns such as Shimla, Kasauli and Mohali. On a trip to this region, you are bound to stumble past this well-planned city. When planning a stay in Chandigarh, you have many budget option places but I decided to stay in Hyatt Regency for its tri-city location.Hyatt Regency is easily accessed to Chandigarh, Mohali and Panchkula.

About Hotel & Amenities

We stayed in King size room on 4th floor which was overlooking the pool.
The decor was in wood and very simple. The staff at reception was prompt to quires, immediately we were transferred allocated with room key. However, bell desk staff was trainee and almost clueless about hotel and surroundings. Bell desk staff almost got me into someone else room. Gosh! Luckily I knew my room number.
Walking down the long aisle to reach the corner room, fragrance of room fresher’s burst out and here I am to my abode for next 2 days.The Room was perfect and clean with a well organised. The room was equipped with minibar ( Chargeable ), electric kettle, iron press and hair dryer. Tea counter had green tea, morning tea, Assam tea (Surprisingly something basic as coffee was missing ). Though the room was well equipped basic things were missing like a coffee sachet, toothpaste, pen and a notebook on the desk, no guide for Chandigarh city for guest. The bed was well made and flat TV with dish connection. A desk with long sofa and a comfy chair.
