Hyatt to strengthen presence in China

7 Jan 2010 by AndrewGough

Hyatt Hotels Corporation (HHC) has announced it is to add more than 1,000 new rooms to its China portfolio by 2013.

The Hyatt Regency Wuxi and Hyatt Regency Xuzhou will debut in 2012, followed a year later by the Grand Hyatt Nanjing. All three properties will be located within China’s Jiangsu province on the country’s Eastern coast.

The 350-room Hyatt Regency Wuxi will be part of a larger two-tower development which will also hold serviced apartments, office space, a shopping arcade and other leisure facilities. The hotel itself will have four restaurants, an 800sqm ballroom and ten meeting rooms, and also a spa and fitness centre.

The Hyatt Regency Xuzhou, also due to open in 2012, will take up the upper most levels of a new 60-floor development in Xuzhou city centre. Along with 350 guestrooms, the hotel will offer restaurants, a grand ballroom and a fitness centre. The hotel will sit within one of five new towers, all forming the new development.

The Grand Hyatt Nanjing will be the last of the three properties to open in 2013 in Nanjing, capital city of Jiangsu province. Again part of a larger mixed-use development, the Grand Hyatt will sit alongside serviced apartments, a shopping mall and other leisure facilities. Like the previous two properties, the 400-room hotel will also come with a grand ballroom, extensive meetings facilities and a spa and gym.

Six Hyatt-branded hotels have opened in Greater China in the past 18 months, including the Park Hyatt Shanghai, Park Hyatt Beijing, Grand Hyatt Macau, Grand Hyatt Shenzhen, Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, Sha Tin, and the Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, Tsim Sha Tsui.
