Hangzhou Hua Pu Industrial Reopens Grand Hyatt Hangzhou Following Renovation and Transition From Hyatt Regency Hangzhou

USA, Chicago, Illinois. January 10, 2019

Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today the opening of Grand Hyatt Hangzhou, formerly Hyatt Regency Hangzhou, marking the first Grand Hyatt hotel in Zhejiang province and the 15th in China. Following an extensive 18-month redesign, the stylish 388-room hotel features luxury accommodations inspired by the best that Hangzhou has to offer.

“We are extremely grateful to Chairlady Lin and her team for their tireless work over the past years, to bring the world-famous Grand Hyatt brand to Zhejiang Province for the very first time,” said Stephen Ho, president, Greater China, global operations for Hyatt. “Thanks to their efforts, guests from across China and the world can now enjoy truly extraordinary moments for which the Grand Hyatt brand is known, while indulging themselves in the tranquil beauty of the West Lake, at a magnificent residence that is set to become a regional icon.”

West Lake—a UNESCO World Heritage site—is Hangzhou's most iconic attraction, having influenced countless poets and painters since the second century. Grand Hyatt Hangzhou enjoys a premier location on the east shore of West Lake within walking distance of Hubin district, the city's main business, shopping, and entertainment hub.

“Over the past decade, the hotel has been recognized as the preferred hotel to host major events, heads of state, and high-profile visitors to Hangzhou,” said Ms. Dior Lin, chairlady of the hotel's owning company, Hangzhou Hua Pu Industrial Co., Ltd. “As we commence our journey as Grand Hyatt Hangzhou, with its contemporary, vibrant and fashionable approach, we are confident this stunning hotel will be an iconic hotel in Hangzhou.”

Grand Hyatt Hangzhou features 388 rooms and suites, ranging in size from 366-2,500 square feet (34-240 square meters). Designed to amplify the breathtaking lake view, the rooms feature an indulgent, comforting mix of textures in the wallcoverings and soft furnishings with subtle Chinese design elements appearing in the desk chair and wall art.

Grand Hyatt Hangzhou's seven exceptional dining venues provide a culinary experience like no other, highlighted by creative menus featuring a variety of both global and local cuisines. Led by Executive Chef, Vincenzo Carbone, the culinary team strives to source the freshest ingredients—local and organic wherever possible—to create authentic dishes and an unforgettable dining experience.

With 35,520 square feet of lavish event space, outfitted with the latest audiovisual equipment and facilities, Grand Hyatt Hangzhou is confident that its conference and banqueting facilities now rank among the most sophisticated in the Zhejiang capital.

Food & Beverage: Millennial Chefs Lead the Way

Led by Millennial chefs, hotels continue to foster sustainability, sourcing and wellness within their dining rooms and banquet spaces, and by all measures, this is responsible for an increase in their revenues. In many hotels, the food & beverage division contributes 50 per cent or more to hotel sales and they are currently experiencing double-digit growth. As a result, hotel owners are allocating an increasing amount of square footage for F&B operations. The biggest area of investment is in catering, which is thriving due to weddings, social events and business conferences. Hotels are also investing in on-site market or convenience stores that offer fresh/refrigerated foods, and buffet concepts also continue to expand. Other popular food trends include a rise of fermented offerings such as kombucha, kimchi, sauerkraut, tempeh, kefir and pickles - all to produce the least processed food possible, and to boost probiotics to improve the immune system. Tea is also enjoying something of a renaissance. More people are thinking of tea with the same reverence as coffee due to its many varieties, applications and benefits. Craft tea blending, nitro tea on tap and even tea cocktails are beginning to appear on some hotel menus. Another trend concerns creating a unique, individualized and memorable experience for guests. This could be a small consumable item that is specific to a property or event, such as house-made snack mixes, gourmet popcorn, macaroons, or jars of house-made jams, chutneys, and mustards -all produced and customized in house. One staple that is in decline is the in-room minibar which seems to have fallen out of favor. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will document the trends and challenges in the food and beverage sector, and report on what some leading hotels are doing to enhance this area of their business.
