Hyatt Regency Hangzhou rebrands as Grand Hyatt

The Grand Hyatt Hangzhou, formerly the Hyatt Regency Hangzhou, has opened, marking a first for the brand in Zhejiang province and its 15th in China. The opening follows an 18-month redesign.

The Grand Hyatt Hangzhou is on the east shore of West Lake—a UNESCO World Heritage site—and within walking distance of Hubin district, the city’s main business, shopping and entertainment hub.

“Over the past decade, the hotel has been recognized as the preferred hotel to host major events, heads of state and high-profile visitors to Hangzhou,” said Dior Lin, chairwoman of the hotel’s owning company, Hangzhou Hua Pu Industrial Co., Ltd.
