The Regent Taipei is a great hotel in Taipei's Zhongshan District, a perfect choice for all types of travelers: business, leisure, couples or family.
While the hotel has not remodeled to account for tech upgrades (they still offer LAN or wireless internet, but you have to pay for each mobile device you connect), the rooms are still spacious and classic, and guests will be treated to great service, and an excellent stay.
The hotel is very close to major tourist destinations like the National Palace Museum and the former US Embassy and some of the best shopping in the city is located in the basement of the hotel. Additionally, guests wanting to travel a bit around Taipei can hop on the subway, which is only a three minute walk from the Regent.
The hotel also has great health and recreational facilities, but the only problem is that you have to walk through the rather busy lobby in order to switch elevators.
Back to the guest rooms though, the hotel provides a nice desk / work station for business travelers and a comfortable chair / ottoman for relaxing. Also the bathrooms are huge, especially the extra-deep bathtubs, that are perfect for unwinding after a busy and hectic day.
Business travelers can also access the Tai Pan program, where the hotel provides personal butlers and a whole bunch of other services for executive types.
Anyway, I plan on returning to Taipei at some point, and the Regent Taipei will be my choice again.
