We (my brother and I, age 21 & 19) arrived on the morning of 23 Jan for a 3 night stay in Kota Kinabalu. We booked the Hyatt due to the cheap price (US$60/night), most probably so cheap because it is currently undergoing renovations.
the renovations (thanks to their website) and were prepared for it. For the price we paid, I am definitely not in a position to complain about the very audible drilling that took place from 9am - 4.30pm. Neither am I complaining about the slight tinge of "renovation smell" in the corridor. However, the room, while dated, was actually very clean and well maintained.
Service was definitely what you would expect at any other Hyatt establishment. Absolutely no complains there.
To sum it up, if you are planning to stay here from now till end-2010 (when their renovations are slated to be completed), do expect inconveniences due to the renovations. But, I believe that they have reduced their rates for this period, so its up to you if you want to save some money and put up with all that.
Should you want to pay more, definitely try the "Le Meridien", which is located in a slightly more central location and is not in renovations.

If you are in Kota Kinabalu, definitely do not miss having dinner at Sedco. Just tell the taxi driver "Sedco" (pronounced sad-co) and he should know. It is less than 10 mins from anywhere within the city area. Once there, you have 4 restaurants to choose from, all are similarly priced and of similar quality. Just pick the one you find most attractive. The word of the day here: "seafood". Enjoy!
