The Grand Hyatt Guangzhou is opening on April 20, 2008 in one wing of a new streamlined twin-tower building.
This is reportedly the first international hotel in Guangzhou to feature a "sky lobby" located 22 floors up; like many other areas in the hotel, it offers expansive views across the Pearl River and Tianhe Central Business District.
The hotel's 375 guestrooms have been designed with work stations that incorporate high-speed broadband Internet access and universal adaptors, and an in-room iPod docking station is also standard. A specially designed inset wall frame allows a 37-inch multi-channel LCD flat-screen TV to be neatly stored flush with the wall and swung out when required for viewing from certain angles.
Premium personalized service is offered at The Grand Club, located on the twentieth floor. Here, privileges include express check-in, complimentary continental breakfast, European high tea, evening cocktails, as well as soft drinks, tea and coffee and other refreshments served throughout the day in its exclusive lounge. The Penthouse, Grand Hyatt Guangzhou's signature Chinese restaurant, perches high above street level over two floors. Here, 13 luxurious, residential-style private dining suites, each with dedicated butlers, offer authentic Cantonese cuisine.
On the third floor, the hotel's three interconnecting sections of the Grand Ballroom can be augmented by fully enclosed VIP and bridal rooms. Six function rooms have been given a residential feel, and a boardroom and Business Centre are also on the same level.
Grand Hyatt Guangzhou will be the fourth Grand Hyatt hotel in mainland China, following Grand Hyatt hotels in Beijing and Shanghai. Hyatt currently operates 10 hotels in Greater China, including Grand Hyatt Beijing, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong, Grand Hyatt Shanghai, Hyatt on the Bund, Shanghai, Grand Hyatt Taipei, Hyatt Regency Dongguan, Hyatt Regency Hangzhou, Hyatt Regency Jing Jin City Resort and Spa, Hyatt Regency Tianjin and Hyatt Regency Xian. An additional 12 hotels are under development.
