Is the Taipei Hyatt worth its stars?

Forum rules
When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"

Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.

Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.

If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)

If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

Yes, a 70% for the rooms - not on club level (which is a good score compared with standard rooms @ the W or Meridien) .
I refer to the interior, becoming worn down , smelly carpet, old style bathrooms. This is judged from a European view as Americans rate this kind of hotels always higher (trip advisor findings) - comparing them with their own lodges. inn's etc.

The Hyatt positions itself now at a #32 spot - far behind the rest of 5* local and International Chain Hotels. The customer decides and judges, but at rates of 250 USD +, you can get better.
Bottom line - It can keep its stars - but it is losing value.
