Hyatt Hotels Corporation has officially opened the seventh Hyatt-branded hotel in Shanghai, which is designed to connect business and leisure travellers.

Named as Hyatt Regency Shanghai Global Harbor and located in Shanghai’s Putuo District, the hotel features 318 guestrooms, including 26 suites, the Regency Club, and a private check in and check out access, as well as four destination restaurants and lounges.

Each guestroom is equipped with complimentary high-speed Internet, Bluetooth sound systems and 65-inch LED TVs.

The hotel also offers more than 27,900ft2 of indoor and outdoor event and meeting venues.

Hyatt China Operations vice-president and managing director Christopher Koehler said: “We are delighted to welcome Hyatt Regency Shanghai Global Harbor to one of China’s largest cities.

“This hotel has been thoughtfully designed to make guests feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed so that they can socialise, connect and celebrate any occasion with us.

“We believe that through our collaboration with our owner, Yue Xing Group, the hotel will become a favourable choice for business and leisure travellers, and reinforce Hyatt’s commitment to growing its brands in markets where our guests are travelling most.”

In a separate development, a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with Lotte Tour Development for a Grand Hyatt branded hotel on Jeju Island, South Korea.

Grand Hyatt Jeju will have 1,600 rooms, 11 food and beverage outlets, approximately 1,200m2 of meeting space, indoor and outdoor pools, fitness centre, two spas (Western and Korean) and two kids clubs.

The hotel will be part of Lotte Tour’s Dream Tower Integrated Resort project in Jeju.
