CHICAGO—The Hyatt Regency Chandigarh has opened in Chandigarh, India, the city planned by Swiss-French architect and planner Le Corbusier. Located 153 miles from India’s capital of Delhi, the new hotel is the first Hyatt-branded hotel to open in the city.
“Hyatt Regency Chandigarh has been thoughtfully designed to make guests feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed, so that they can socialize, connect and celebrate any occasion. I am confident that this contemporary new hotel will add to the appeal of Le Corbusier’s charming city and introduce Hyatt’s well-known hospitality to guests and residents,” said Kurt Straub, VP of operations for Hyatt in India.
As part of the Hyatt Regency brand, the property has been conceived to foster connections and serve as a dynamic, energizing space, according to the company. Central to the city’s business hub, the property is part of a premium development that includes the Elante Mall and an office complex that houses key multi-national companies and diplomatic missions. The hotel is accessible to Chandigarh International Airport and close to the Chandigarh Junction railway station.
There are 211 guestrooms, including 25 suites and seven cabana rooms, which are inspired by Le Corbusier’s design elements, including contemporary furniture, inspired artwork and colorful carpets. Each guestroom provides views of the city, pool or landscaped gardens. Amenities include a 42-in. LED TV, mini bar, a separate shower cubicle and bath, work desk with enhanced lighting, complimentary high-speed WiFi, premium bath amenities, concierge service and 24 hour in-room dining.
There are five restaurants and bars ranging from Northern Indian dishes to Chinese cuisine, Western fare to classic Italian. The property offers more than 36,000 sq. ft. of flexible meeting and event facilities, including an 8,711 sq. ft. pillar-less ballroom. An onsite spa will open in early June.
