It has direct access to attractions including Yeya Lake, Shijinglong Ski Resort and Longqing Gorge, and is 30 minutes from downtown Beijing by high-speed rail from Yanqing railway station.

According to the website, it is accepting reservations for stays from December 1.

The hotel’s 136 rooms include separate spaces to sleep and work, and include a ‘Cozy Corner’ sofa bed, complimentary wifi and the majority have private balconies.

Facilities include a fitness centre with cardio equipment and LCD touchscreens, and 370 sqm of events space, while dining venues include the Gallery Kitchen which offers breakfast and the Gallery Lounge which serves specialty coffee, premium beers, wines and cocktails.

The hotel also has a ‘necessities programme’, which allows guests to buy or borrow items that they have forgotten for free.

General Manager Stella Sun commented:

“As Beijing continues to grow and thrive economically, we are excited to add to the momentum by welcoming the first Hyatt Place hotel to the Yanqing area.

“With our smartly designed social spaces and guestrooms with separate work and sleep areas, our multitasking guests can easily accomplish what they need to do while on the road.”

The hotel has been developed by Beijing Horticultural Expo Assets Operation Management Co, Ltd.
