The Hyatt Place Beijing Daxing, the brand's first hotel in China's capital, opened this week.

“Beijing is a very strategic market for Hyatt and as it continues to grow and thrive economically, and we are excited to add to the momentum by welcoming the first Hyatt Place hotel to the city,” said General Manager Harvey Huang.

The hotel is located in Xi Hong Men Town, the new core area of Daxing in south Beijing. The hotel is about 50-minute drive from Beijing Capital International Airport and a 30-minute drive from the soon-to-be-complete Beijing Daxing International Airport, as well as five subway stops away from the Beijing South Railway Station. The hotel is close to some major industries in the area, including Z-Park Daxing Bio-medicine Industrial Zone, China New Media Development Zone and Beijing Advanced Business Square.

Hyatt Place Beijing Daxing has 144 guestrooms and 1,880 square feet of event space. 

The opening is the latest step in Hyatt’s efforts to gain market share in China. In November, Euromonitor International reported China is set to overtake France as the world’s number-one tourist destination by 2030 as a growing middle class in Asia looks to spend more on travel. The market research group predicted 1.4 billion trips made in 2018, up 5 percent from last year. By 2030, international arrivals are expected to have risen by another billion, boosted by Beijing hosting the 2022 Winter Olympic Games.
