Hyatt has opened its first Hyatt Regency-branded property in China’s capital city.
The 348-key Hyatt Regency Beijing Wangjing has a total of 60,277 square feet of meeting/event space, including a 14,746-square-foot ballroom.
“As the first Hyatt Regency property in Beijing, we are proud to bring upscale hotel hospitality into the Wangjing area,” said Till Martin, general manager, Hyatt Regency Beijing Wangjing. “The dynamic energy and growth in Wangjing is exciting for us as we expect the Hyatt Regency brand will create a seamless connection between our guests and the very best that Wangjing has to offer.”
The property is located in the heart of the Wangjing Central Business District, and is easily accessed via the Airport Express. It is also close to the 798 Art District and the Futong subway station on Line 14. The hip Nanluoguxiang Street, the nightlife hub of Sanlitun, Olympic Park and other popular sightseeing and lifestyle destinations can be easily reached on the city’s underground transportation system.
Design and Guestrooms
Designed by award-winning architect Kengo Kuma, the hotel’s architecture is inspired by the Chinese “Sanhe Yuan,” a three-sided courtyard style home embracing a green garden. With its location between green parks, Kengo Kuma has created an “urban forest” defined by a contemporary chic design and natural materials.
A biophilic design, known to incorporate natural materials, elements and views, is deeply engrained in the hotel’s design. Notable natural elements include:
- natural light in the lobby thanks to oak louvers underneath a large glass skylight;
- green bamboo landscape and natural travertine, marble, granite, oak and walnut used throughout the lobby giving it the feel of taking a walk in a conservatory;
- and oak wood, beige marble, green marble and wood-grain patterned carpets in the guestrooms.
Dining and Drinking
The property has five restaurants and bars offering locally-inspired delicacies as well as international fare. F&B venues are:
- The Lounge (urban sanctuary);
- Market Cafe (dining in indoor garden);
- Cang Yue (authentic Chinese cuisine, opening later this year)
- Shunpachi (Japanese specialties in an relaxed Izakaya-style environment, opening later this year);
- and The Music Bar (cocktails, live musicians and DJs).
