DoubleTree by Hilton Taipei Zhongshan - A Prime Staycation Landmark

While the little things mean everything especially when it is coming from a full service hotel with a few other limitations, DoubleTree by Hilton Taipei Zhongshan offers more than just that with a 4 star deluxe hospitality that makes them stand out from many others. mylifestylenews writes.

When you choose a DoubleTree by Hilton chains for accommodation, many travellers would compare and expect to receive a Hilton class of standard service yet DoubleTree by Hilton’s concept is different from the family of Hilton brands with accommodation that focuses more on a lifestyle basis by offering a sleek and carefree no-muss-no-fuss swift stay.

The hotel can be found in 47 countries, with more than 587 properties currently open, this hotel brand is favoured by guests (young executives and families) that are willing to pay a premium for a higher-quality stay. While the brand focuses on the business/leisure guests that may only require the basic amenities, the modern comfort with contemporary chic design adding the vibe and colour with some properties that even went a step further for the tech-savvy features offered as well as arty installations and outstanding design ornaments on display to admire.

With the touch of modernity and features offering more than just the basic and the right amount of facilities and amenities that have set the trends ever since, not forgetting that the location chosen for this hotel brand is logistically being thought through, DoubleTree by Hilton Taipei Zhongshan sits handsomely in one of the city most vibrant Zhongshan financial and commercial business districts. Subsequently, you get to enjoy the tourists’ sights such as the local art precincts and museums (old and new), a vibrant shopping and entertainment area to explore, indulge yourself in those renown local street food night markets, take a stroll in the city's tranquil Linsen Park which are all within minutes walking distance.

DoubleTree by Hilton Taipei Zhongshan is conveniently accessed by metro via Zhongshan station as well as Taipei Main Station which allows you to connect to the Airport Express train in a jiffy transfer to Taipei Taoyuan International Airport. The hotel has 106 elegantly designed rooms and suites and it really punches above its weight in our estimation and this four years old premises looks like it was opened yesterday.

The large and spacious lobby encompasses the arrival and departure experience and features a modern and contemporary interior with comfort zone lounge area and a communal table extended to the back of the foyer, separated by a glasshouse of paper butterflies circulating two pieces of giant mountain logs and hanging plants by bringing the nature view indoors as a unique installation set centre stage upon entering the hotel.

Further aback is La Salle lobby lounge looking over an internal courtyard and decorated by the giant ceiling high of mosaic set in colorful digital images of peony representation. A rather cool place to chill during cocktails happy hour.

We arrived early morning and were bowled over by the amazing energy and service from the engaging team member Sharon from front desk who checked us in. Sharon was uplifting and cheerful and personally made us feel so warm and time efficient making. Despite the regular check-in time is at 3pm, our room wasn’t ready inevitably and she handled and stored our luggage well without much worries. Her cheerful approach left us quite a good impression together with her fellow front line team.

After a few hours walk to explore the vibrant neighbourhood, on return, the same vibrant energy was presented with Sharon’s hospitality who had our room ready and proceeded to our King Corner Room with Balcony on the 15th floor. Don’t look down as the low rise rooftop view below is not so chic, but in essence gives you a taste of how the locals live. But, if you look farther ahead, the 33sqm room gives us a direct view to Taipei 101 in the distance with an outdoor balcony access which is the view that you would like to wake up for.

Toilet and bathroom are separated and delightfully comes with the automatic smart bidet. The sensibly combined bath and shower room is spacious and evidently had taken up some space for the room fit out. The sleek one touch button is easily activated for the best power shower of your life, no need annoying taps or levers to turn, with a choice of handheld or rain shower which is an absolute joy to freshen up with. Quality bathroom room amenities such as Crabtree & Evelyn is also chosen to soften and pamper your weary skin.

On top of that, complimentary and well selected TWG teabags and a great new Nespresso coffee machine together with all the other essentials you might require are well placed on top of the mini bar where most luxury hotels don’t even offer such a premium selection which is another added bonus value to this DoubleTree by Hilton Taipei Zhongshan property. Despite the room design within the living area being rather narrow and crowded with a single piece of lounge chair and a work desk, the large king bed is extremely comfortable to unwind with linens and pillows and enough storage space to unpack our suitcases. Overall, the room is a thoughtfully well-designed space and ticking all the boxes.

A small and compact gym is available on the 3rd floor to sweat out the excess calories.

The hotel has only one proper all-day dining restaurant on level two that serves an amazing semi-buffet breakfast. The semi-buffet set up may not be as lavish as you think yet offering enough hearty selection to start your day. Don’t miss out on the fresh passion fruit juice and kiwi juice which is delightfully tasty that made an unexpected value.

A well-presented Bento style set breakfast comes with a quality choice of unlimited serving of Western or Asian being served to your table after ordering. 

Savanna - the hostess and server keeps her eagle eyes in all counts, fast and efficient who also has a subtle sense of humor and somehow has an encyclopedic memory, so after asking for something specific on the first day, she made sure it was prepared every day thereafter, which made us feel very special. She was also kind and considerate in other ways that displayed to us a great customer service ethic and a desire to create experiences for guests beyond expectations.

DoubleTree by Hilton Taipei Zhongshan is punching above its weight and could show a thing or two to some other luxury hotel brands. With many aspects being thoughtfully considered, this property have set a prime staycation landmark and outdone other DoubleTree by Hilton in many sensible elements and touches that could win the hearts of their return guests.
