New face, old friend with Hyatt to return to Hongkong

1 Jan 2008 by business traveller

A new Hyatt Regency property will open on Hanoi Road in Hongkong’s busy Tsim Sha Tsui shopping and entertainment district in 2009.

The original Hyatt Regency Hongkong was launched in 1969 on Nathan Road, and was the first in the brand to open outside the US, but after 36 years it was demolished. Hyatt also has a Hongkong property under the Grand Hyatt brand, on Harbour Road.

The new hotel will feature 384 rooms, including 33 suites. Bedrooms will occupy levels 10 to 24 and each will have a flatscreen TV with cable and satellite programming, wired and Wi-Fi internet access, a safe with built-in laptop charger, workstation with enhanced lighting, and a personal bar, while bathrooms will be fitted with a soaking tub and a separate shower.

The hotel will house eight meeting rooms, including one on the top floor with floor-to-ceiling windows and views across Victoria Harbour. All will be equipped with Wi-Fi and modern audio-visual technology.

Other facilities will include a 382-square-metre ballroom, fitness centre, 25-metre pool, outdoor whirlpool and children’s pool, as well as a 1,394-square-metre Sky Garden on the ninth level, and the Regency Club on 24th floor.

Dining options will comprise the Chinese Restaurant and Chin Chin bar, both serving local specialities, as well as Hugo’s and The Café for international food.

The new Hyatt Regency property will occupy floors three to 24 in the new development, which will also accommodate a five-storey shopping arcade, and basement access to the Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station.
