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.

Guest Service: A Culture of YES

In a recent global consumers report, 97% of the participants said that customer service is a major factor in their loyalty to a brand, and 76% said they view customer service as the true test of how much a company values them. And since there is no industry more reliant on customer satisfaction than the hotel industry, managers must be unrelenting in their determination to hire, train and empower the very best people, and to create a culture of exceptional customer service within their organization. Of course, this begins with hiring the right people. There are people who are naturally service-oriented; people who are warm, empathetic, enthusiastic, pleasant, thoughtful and optimistic; people who take pride in their ability to solve problems for the hotel guests they are serving. Then, those same employees must be empowered to solve problems using their own judgment, without having to track down a manager to do it. This is how seamless problem solving and conflict resolution are achieved in guest service. This willingness to empower employees is part of creating a Culture of Yes within an organization.  The goal is to create an environment in which everyone is striving to say “Yes”, rather than figuring out ways to say, “No”. It is essential that this attitude be instilled in all frontline, customer-facing, employees. Finally, in order to ensure that the hotel can generate a consistent level of performance across a wide variety of situations, management must also put in place well-defined systems and standards, and then educate their employees about them. Every employee must be aware of and responsible for every standard that applies in their department. The April issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some leading hotels are doing to cultivate and manage guest satisfaction in their operations.
