The newest Hyatt hotel has opened in Northwest China with the Hyatt Regency Xi’an, the capital of Shaanxi province in northwest China. The opening marks the return of the Hyatt Regency brand to one of China’s oldest cities with the 298-room Hyatt Regency hotel.
“As the starting point of the ancient Silk Road and a strategic hub for the contemporary Belt and Road initiative, Xi’an is one of the most visited leisure and business destinations in northwest China,” said Hyatt’s vice president and managing director of operations for China. “We are thrilled to welcome back the Hyatt Regency brand to this historic city, further reinforcing Hyatt’s commitment to growing its brand presence in key cities around the world.”
Hyatt Regency Xi’an is conveniently located in Qujiang District and is home to the Eight Great Sights of Chang’an, a collection of scenic areas near Qujiang Lake. A 45-minute drive to Xi’an Xianyang International Airport, Hyatt Regency Xi’an provides convenient access to both the Xi’an Convention Center and world-renowned tourist sites like Wild Goose Pagoda and the Terracotta Warriors.
An Inspiring Arrival
Inspired by Xi’an’s rich history, the hotel honors the prosperous Tang Dynasty by connecting the old city to the new city through design. Hyatt Regency Xi’an welcomes guests with impressive pitched ceilings, a sprawling layout built around a grand lobby and a front entrance illuminated by a sea of fiery torches, paying respect to days when Xi’an served as the gateway between China and the rest of the world through the Silk Road.
Inspiring sculptures and art displays dot the grounds, updating the traditional with modern interpretations of icons like Chinese lanterns, paper cuttings and official seals, while subtler details play on symbols of prosperity. Motifs derived from icons like seed-filled pomegranates weave their way into everything from art installations at the front desk to the inscribed number plates on the door of every room.
“Xi’an has long held a special place in the heart of Chinese civilization. As a native of Xi’an, it is my honor to welcome back new and former guests. This hotel allows them to truly experience the very best of our city and its incredible culture,” said General Manager Z. Du.
Hyatt Regency Xi’an features 298 guestrooms and suites ranging in size from 538 square feet (50 square meters) to 2,777 square feet (258 square meters). Most guestrooms offer a private balcony, and all are designed along one of three design themes that reflect the prosperity of the Tang Dynasty.
Each standard guestroom offers stunning unobstructed views of Qujiang Lake, a 48-inch flat-screen television with cable and satellite channels and an oversized work desk and large walk-in closet, in addition to modern amenities, including wireless high-speed Internet access and mobile phone docking stations.
The hotel’s 33 spacious suites offer guests a private balcony, as well as access to the Regency Club lounge, which offers complimentary breakfast and happy hour refreshments, an exclusive lake view terrace, and business and meeting room services.

The Lounge begins guests’ culinary journey with three separate spaces decorated to reflect different regions of the Silk Road.
