Hyatt selects senior digital strategy leader to enhance in teractions with guests across touchpoints


CHICAGO (July 23, 2018) – Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today the opening of Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang in East China’s Jiangsu province. Set atop the East Tower of Suning Plaza, the highest skyscraper in Zhenjiang, the 318-room Hyatt Regency hotel is set to provide travelers and locals alike with a fresh perspective of the city by providing an energizing place to connect with the very best of Zhenjiang.

“We are very excited to unveil Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang and further expand our Hyatt Regency brand presence in the fast-growing Yangtze River Delta region. We are very grateful for the continuous support and trust of the hotel’s owner, the Suning Group, endowing Hyatt with another amazing hotel in Jiangsu province,” said Stephen Ho, President, Greater China, Global Operations for Hyatt. “China continues to see strong development momentum due to the increase in business and leisure travel. With the upscale offerings and energizing spaces that the Hyatt Regency brand is known for, we hope Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang will provide our guests with a seamless experience that connects them to who and what matters most when visiting Zhenjiang.”

Located at the heart of the Da Shi Kou central business district, Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang is conveniently accessible to shopping, entertainment venues, and famous tourist sites, including Xijindu Ancient Street, Beigushan Park, Zhenjiang China Vinegar Culture Museum and Nanshan Scenic Area. The hotel is just 12 minutes from Zhenjiang Railway Station, 90 minutes from Nanjing Lukou International Airport and a 30-minute drive to the neighboring city of Yangzhou via Runyang Bridge.

Zhenjiang, sitting at the intersection of the Yangtze River and the Grand Canal, is a wellspring of history, culture, and cuisine. While the monumental Yangtze River and statuesque Beigu Mountain represent the traditional side of Zhenjiang, the city is set for a vibrant future with its contemporary offerings and fast-growing developments.

“We are very excited to welcome guests and the local community to our new hotel,” said General Manager Irwin Bao. “With a prime location, fantastic views, premier meeting facilities and intuitive service, we are confident that Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang will provide one-stop convenience to guests during their travels.”

The chic interiors of Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang tell a story of the charm of Wu culture, imbued with soothing natural elements reflecting the river, water, tower, and forests. Starting at the artistic lobby on the 57th floor, the hotel features two sky-high restaurants and lounges, dynamic event spaces, comprehensive wellbeing facilities, and a rooftop helipad.

Guestrooms and Suites

Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang features 318 guestrooms, including 20 spacious suites, providing welcoming accommodation high above the city from the 59th to 76th floors. Stepping into each guestroom, guests are greeted with panoramic vistas of the Yangtze River or Nanshan Scenic Area through floor-to-ceiling windows. Guests can relax in style while enjoying the amazing sunsets over the Yangtze River and savvy in-room comforts, such as free Wi-Fi, a 65” SMART TV, spacious working area, and a Nespresso coffee machine in suites.

Dining and Drinking

World-class dining experiences await at two top-of-the-city restaurants. On the 58th floor, Xiang Yue, the hotel’s signature Chinese restaurant, serves authentic Hangzhou and Jiangsu cuisines in its ruby-hued parlor and seven private dining rooms. At Market Café on the 57th floor, seasonal dishes from East and West are freshly prepared at live chef kitchens during the breakfast, lunch and dinner buffets. On the same level, The Lounge serves as a great spot for a relaxed afternoon tea or cocktails with spectacular views of Zhenjiang from the highest viewing deck in the city. The Pastry Shop on the ground floor prepares gourmet cakes and bread for grab-and-go ease.

Meetings and Events

The hotel features more than 16,400 square feet (1,532 square meters) of versatile and multi-functional event spaces, which provide a dazzling backdrop for different meeting and social occasions. The pillar-free 9,472-square-foot (880-square-meter) Regency Ballroom on the fifth floor can accommodate up to 900 guests for a cocktail event or 450 guests for a banquet. Seven multifunctional meeting rooms on the fifth and sixth floors, with stylish breakout spaces and advanced technology, are supported by a team of creative and professional planners to ensure seamless and personalized events.
