Grand Hyatt Chengdu
The interiors of Grand Hyatt Chengdu were inspired by country houses in Chengdu and in France.

Hyatt Hotels Corporation opened Grand Hyatt Chengdu in the capital of Sichuan province in Southwest China. This is the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Sichuan, spanning floors 10 to 39 of the 545-foot high Chicony Square. Grand Hyatt Chengdu is situated on the Chunxi Road (a.k.a. “Hundred Year Gold Street”) in the heart of Jinjiang district

The interiors of Grand Hyatt Chengdu were designed by the New York-based Tony Chi & Associates, which was inspired by aristocratic country houses found in Chengdu and in France. The hotel has garden spaces, inspired by the landscape of Sichuan province and France.

Grand Hyatt Chengdu has 390 guestrooms, measuring between 430 square feet and 2,045 square feet, all with panoramic view of downtown Chengdu through floor-to-ceiling windows. A minimalist Tang-Dynasty aesthetic is accompanied by Chinese touches, from ceramic horse lamp bases, kang-leg coffee tables and ink-brush paintings of monkeys and goldfish.
