Hyatt has opened its latest Regency property in Shanghai, located in the city’s Songjiang district.
The 256-room hotel faces Wulong Lake and is situated within the Ecology Business District in western Shanghai, close to Songjiang University Town metro station and attractions including the Guangfulin Ancient Relics Park and Chenshan Botanical Gardens.
Rooms have floor-to-ceiling windows with views of either the lake, gardens or “urban skyline”, and the sixth floor Regency Club Lounge has its own lakefront terrace.
Facilities include an outdoor freeform pool and second indoor heated infinity pool, as well as a fitness studio, yoga studio, and 1,900 sqm of events space including a 600-capacity ballroom.
Dining options include Xiang Yue Chinese restaurant with a total of 11 private dining rooms, as well as Market Café which “showcases East-West selections prepared a la minute from open chef kitchens”, and The Lounge and Bar which opens out onto a lakefront garden.
The hotel’s interiors have been inspired by Songjiang’s textile industry, and the ceiling and lights in the ballroom “reflect Songjiang’s rich river system resembling starling sprinkled on the flowing waters”.
Hyatt Regency Shanghai Songjiang joins Hyatt Regency Shanghai Global Harbor, Hyatt Regency Shanghai Jiading and Hyatt Regency Shanghai, Wujiaochang as the brand’s fourth property in the city.
