Hyatt Hotels has opened a Grand Hyatt hotel in Xi’an, China which forms part of the landmark Maike Center, consisting of high-end retail and offices.

The 396-room Grand Hyatt Xi’an hotel is said to mark another important milestone for Hyatt’s continued brand expansion in Northwest China.

Hyatt China managing director and operations vice-president Christopher Koehler said: “As early as 1990, Xi’an has been of special importance for Hyatt as it was one of the first locations in which our brands entered China and where we have cultivated great talent and leaders over the years.”

Grand Hyatt Xi’an is strategically located within the Xi’an High-Tech Industries Development Zone and is situated close to Xi’an Greenland PICO International Convention & Exhibition Center as well as Xi’an Qujiang International Conference Exhibition Center.

The Grand Hyatt Xi’an hotel connects to an office tower through a Sky Bridge 328ft above ground.

The faceted exterior of the hotel at ground level shapes the entrance comprised of a two-storey atrium lobby topped with a triangular sloping glass roof.

Standard rooms at the hotel start at 538ft² and deluxe rooms at 807ft², all with floor-to-ceiling windows.

Grand Hyatt Xi’an hotel offers various dining experiences at The Lounge, Grand Café, Chang’an Bridge Chinese Restaurant and Allegro Restaurant & Bar.

Amenities offered include the Grand Ballroom and the Grand Salon, additional 11 meeting rooms for customised business meetings, a 24-hour fitness centre, indoor swimming pool, and a spa on the sixth floor which is set to open this year.
