Hirsch Bedner Associates designs public areas, rooms of Grand Hyatt Shenyang

Hyatt Hotels Corporation opened the Grand Hyatt Shenyang, the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Northeast China, located in the capital of Liaoning Province. The hotel's style will mirror the city of Shenyang, the largest city in Northeast China, melding ancient culture with modernity.

Occupying a newly built 29-story tower, Grand Hyatt Shenyang is located on the Qingnian Avenue, the main downtown commercial thoroughfare of Shenyang. The hotel provides direct access to the MixC luxury retail mall and is situated near corporate headquarters and residential buildings. The hotel also has access to the Shenyang Taoxian International Airport and other transportation junctions.

Grand Hyatt Shenyang's public areas and guestrooms were designed by Hirsch Bedner Associates (HBA). The hotel design blends elements and motifs from ancient Shenyang with the spirit of a 21st century city. The Sky Lobby on the 25th floor has art installations inspired by the decorations of Shenyang's palaces where guests can enjoy a 360-degree panorama view of the city.
