“The opening of Hyatt Regency Shanghai Wujiaochang further expands Hyatt’s brand presence in Shanghai and significantly enriches our authentic and diversified brand experiences for guests,” said Christopher Koehler, Hyatt’s vice president & managing director of operations for China. “This hotel has been thoughtfully designed to make guests feel welcome and comfortable so that they can socialise, connect and celebrate any occasion.”
The hotel offers a total of 306 rooms and suites, ranging in size from 40 to 209m² and all featuring views of the city through floor-to-ceiling windows. Facilities include the Market Café restaurant, which extends underneath the glass roof of the atrium, and a lounge in the sixth floor ‘Sky Lobby’. There is also a 24-hour gym on the eighth floor, a 25-metre indoor swimming pool, and a whirlpool with underwater massage loungers.
