Hyatt Regency Changchun Opens in Heart of the Jilin Capital

Drawing on its green surroundings, new hotel will foster connections
and inspiration

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hyatt
Hotels Corporation
(NYSE: H) announced today the opening of Hyatt
Regency Changchun
, marking the first Hyatt-branded hotel in the
capital city of Jilin province, northeast China, and the first high-end
business hotel to open in the city’s downtown area in almost two decades.

Hyatt Regency Changchun is located in Chaoyang district in the heart of
the city, an area known for its abundance of verdant areas, such as
Peony Garden and Children’s Park. Hyatt Regency Changchun resides within
Hongwell International Plaza, a statuesque skyscraper designed by the
award-winning American architectural firm Goettsch Partners.

The hotel is a 50-minute drive from Changchun Longjia International
Airport, 20- and 30-minute drives from Changchun Railway Stations North
and West, respectively, and a five-minute drive to the central
convergence of People’s Square. Hyatt Regency Changchun enjoys a prime
location surrounded by banks and government offices, making it ideal for
business travelers. Meanwhile, leisure visitors can take advantage of
the hotel’s easy access to the city’s major attractions, including
Changchun Film City theme park, World Sculpture Park, the Museum of the
Imperial Palace of Manchukuo, and Jingyuetan National Forest Park.

“The introduction of our strong Hyatt Regency brand in Changchun, Jilin
reinforces our commitment to growing our brands purposefully in the
places where our guests are traveling,” said Christopher Koehler, vice
president and managing director, China Operations, Hyatt. “We are
delighted that this hotel will bring the Hyatt Regency brand — one of
dynamic and stimulating hospitality — to the city and to connect guests
with their friends, family and business partners. We believe this hotel
will contribute to our goal of becoming the most preferred hotel
company.”

“We are thrilled about the opening of Hyatt Regency Changchun,” said
General Manager Owen Chiu. “With the modern facilities and caring team,
we are confident that guests will be impressed by this new addition in
the city, where they can leave every detail to our dedicated and
professional team so they can partake in enjoyable experiences of all
sorts, whether it be a business trip, social gathering or unique dining
experience.”

As part of the Hyatt Regency family, Hyatt Regency Changchun has been
conceived to foster connections and serve as a dynamic, energizing space
where guests can collaborate, share and find inspiration. Drawing on the
green location, which enjoys some of the cleanest air in China, interior
design firm Cap Atelier has incorporated myriad nature-inspired elements
into the interiors. On entering the hotel lobby, guests are greeted by a
triumvirate of striking textured-steel spheres symbolizing a rich
harvest; the Regency Ballroom is dominated by a stunning interlacing of
metal budding branches suspended from the ceiling. Cap Atelier was also
inspired by the rich culture of northeastern China, reflected in
back-lit lattice wooden frames, brick ovens and lantern-style pendant
lighting.

Guestrooms and Facilities

Hyatt Regency Changchun houses 427 guestrooms, including 66 suites,
designed to morph effortlessly from office to oasis, allowing guests to
recharge.

Entry-level rooms measuring 40 square meters (431 sq ft) are dominated
by a large picture window filling an entire wall. Warm wood surrounds
the frame to create an eye-catching proscenium arch, perfectly framing
the panoramic city view. Subtle Chinese influences appear in the soft
furnishings and hexagonal lantern-style pendant lights.

Rooms are designed to connect guests to all the essentials, simply and
intuitively, and are equipped with the latest facilities and amenities
including a large LED TV, a workspace with enhanced lighting and
complimentary high-speed Internet access.

The hotel’s 66 suites measure from 75 to 255 square meters (807–2,745 sq
ft) and feature separate living areas and coffee machines. All suites
and Regency Club rooms provide exclusive access to the Regency Club
lounge on the 42nd floor, which offers complimentary breakfast, all-day
coffee and tea service, and evening cocktails and canapés.

Guests can also energize in the hotel’s 1,300 square meters (13,993 sq
ft) of wellness facilities, the largest among hotels in the city. On the
6th floor, guests will discover a 25-meter (82-ft) heated indoor pool, a
whirlpool, an outdoor lounging terrace, and a fitness center, equipped
with the very latest in technology-enabled exercise equipment.

Dining and Drinking

Hyatt Regency Changchun’s five restaurants and bar span the culinary
globe. From authentic Chinese cuisine to fine European fare, the hotel
provides multiple options for quick drinks, business lunches, intimate
dinners or casual dining experiences, all offering culinary experiences
designed to inspire food lovers.

The Lounge on the lobby level is a residential-style venue
designed to invoke the feel of a northeastern village courtyard,
combining skylights, black stone walls, freestanding fireplaces and a
jade color palette. The Lounge offers simple Western and Chinese comfort
food, including international wines and a selection of Chinese and
afternoon teas, accompanied by piano performances in the evenings.

Market Café is the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant,
where chefs at live cooking stations and marble counters offer a lively,
theatrical display of Western and Asian cuisine to stimulate all the
senses. A variety of fresh northern Chinese noodles will be served
straight off the stove, while authentic Italian pizza will emerge
freshly baked from a pizza oven.

Pin Yue is the Chinese restaurant at Hyatt Regency Changchun,
offering authentic Jilin cuisine using the freshest local and seasonal
ingredients, as well as signature Beijing duck roasted in a traditional
wood-fired duck oven. Twelve private dining rooms can accommodate up to
20 guests and feature their own pantry to create a relaxed
‘dine-in-the-kitchen’ atmosphere. Personalized menus and a private
butler service are also provided.

Those after a quick refuel will head to Pastry Shop, which
offers sandwiches, pastries, cakes, freshly brewed coffee and handmade
chocolates and macaroons — all made daily — in addition to seasonal gift
sets.

The Bar, expected to open in the second quarter of 2016, will
feature an ‘after-the hunt’ theme, celebrating and commemorating the
rich tradition of field sports across the globe. Decorated with vintage
hunting paraphernalia, The Bar will serve craft cocktails and a
carefully curated selection of wines, beer and spirits, accompanied by
live music. A wooden spiral staircase leads to a VIP room where a
personal playlist can be arranged.

Event Venues

Hyatt Regency Changchun aims to establish itself as the city’s premier
events venue. The hotel offers eight flexible event spaces totaling
2,300 square meters (24,757 sq ft), designed to offer a location for
every occasion and make the most of every meeting.

The hotel’s main event venue is the Regency Ballroom on the 2nd
floor, a pillar-free 800-square-meter (8,611 sq ft) space that can
accommodate up to 500 guests, adjacent to a 500-square-meter (5,382 sq
ft) foyer, ideal for pre-or post-event cocktails. Inspired by the Spring
Festival, guests are welcomed through tall doors with striking back-lit
transoms evoking traditional guaqian paper-cutting. Guests will
then flow into the ballroom featuring the eye-catching ceiling of metal
branches, where emerging red fruit symbolizes ‘the fading of winter and
approach of spring.’

On the 3rd and 5th floors are seven multi-functional event spaces
equipped with the very latest audio-visual equipment. Ranging from 70 to
125 square meters (753–1,345 sq ft), the event spaces can accommodate
gatherings from 20 to 80 guests.

Regardless of the event type, the hotel’s on-site event professionals
are primed to plan creative themes, stunning decorations, innovative
lighting, immersive digital displays and customized food and drink menus
to both engage and energize guests.
