Park Hyatt Hangzhou opened to welcome guests in Hangzhou, the picturesque and cultured city fabled as a "paradise on earth" in East China. The 242-room luxury residence is imbued with the rich nature, culture, history and artistry that are unique to this former imperial Chinese capital. Combined with the elegance of the Park Hyatt brand, guests are welcomed into a refined sanctuary where a journey of rare and intimate experiences unfolds in exquisite style. "We are thrilled to introduce the Park Hyatt brand to Hangzhou," said Christopher Koehler, vice president and managing director - operations, Hyatt in China. "This opening is a testament to our commitment to meaningful and strategic growth of our brands in this region where we know our guests are travelling. We look forward to welcoming our guests to this signature hotel that creates sophisticated and enriching experiences for which the Park Hyatt brand is known." Located in the heart of Qianjiang New City CBD, Hangzhou's burgeoning hub for commerce and culture on the west bank of Qiantang River, Park Hyatt Hangzhou is an ideal place for both business and leisure travelers. The hotel forms part of the 800,000 sqm miXc complex, which also houses Grade-A offices, residential apartments and a six-level high-end retail podium. Crowning the uppermost levels of the 49-floor skyscraper, the new Park Hyatt Hangzhou is the tallest hotel in the city. Park Hyatt Hangzhou is a 30-minute drive from Hangzhou International Airport and a 15-minute drive from Hangzhou East Railway Station for high-speed rail links to major cities across China. The miXc complex is directly connected to the interchange of two Metro lines enabling easy citywide transportation. Guests can reach Hangzhou's famed West Lake in just 20 minutes by car. "We are excited to welcome guests to experience the personalized, understated luxury at Park Hyatt Hangzhou," says Stephan Tschuppik, general manager of the hotel. "Park Hyatt Hangzhou reflects the poetry and luxury of life around famous West Lake and Jiangnan, located on the top of the city and next to Qiantang River. From the moment our guests arrive, they are surrounded with contemporary luxury at its best, from original works of art and thoughtfully considered design to the finest in culinary expression."
