SUZHOU, CHINA—Hyatt Hotels Corporation recently opened the Hyatt Regency Suzhou located here. The city of Suzhou, known as “the Venice of China,” is renowned for its ancient canals, stone bridges and UNESCO-listed classic gardens.
Nestled in the Suzhou Industrial Park (SIP) with a subway station at its doorstep, Hyatt Regency Suzhou is part of Jinghope Plaza, a new complex project that includes a luxury shopping mall, entertainment venues and two Grade-A office buildings.
Hyatt Regency Suzhou is a key connecting point between Suzhou and Shanghai, offering easy accessibility to visiting guests. It takes 25 minutes by train to reach Shanghai, one hour by car to reach Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport, and 10 minutes by car to reach Suzhou SIP Railway Station, the transportation hub of Yangtze River Delta region. The hotel neighbors the Jinji Lake, Suzhou Culture and Arts Center, Suzhou International Expo Center and the Ferris Wheel Park.
The hotel offers 355 guestrooms and suites plus a Regency Club. There are five restaurants and lounges, more than 15,000 sq. ft. of meeting, event and wedding venues, and spa and wellness facilities.
The refreshing, contemporary design by LTW Designworks features a 29-story triangular atrium topped with a glass roof. The interior design is inspired by Suzhou’s classic gardens offset by large-scale contemporary artworks that reference the modern face of Suzhou.
Hyatt Regency Suzhou’s 355 contemporary guestrooms encircle a 29-story atrium, offering city views from every room. The modern design incorporates Suzhou stylistic influences – from a large black-and-white mural featuring snapshots of classical architecture and garden images to woven cane lanterns and an abundance of natural woods and textures.
Starting at a spacious 430 sq. ft., all guestrooms offer premium amenities, including: a large-screen LED TV with satellite channels and free on-demand movies; coffee and tea sets; individually controlled air conditioning; and complimentary high-speed broadband/WiFi Internet access. An oversized table is equally comfortable as a work desk and dining table. Bathrooms feature a deep-soaking tub, shower and separate toilet, plus all-natural Portico bath products.

The Regency Club provides the highest level of personalized services, including exclusive access to the 28th floor’s Regency Club lounge, serving complimentary breakfast, all-day refreshments and evening cocktails.
