The 348-room Hyatt Regency Beijing Wangjing has officially opened, marking the debut of the Hyatt Regency brand in the Chinese capital city. The hotel is located where the burgeoning central business district of Wangjing meets a residential neighborhood. 
"The dynamic energy and growth in Wangjing is exciting for us, as we expect the Hyatt Regency brand will create a seamless connection between our guests and the very best that Wangjing has to offer," said the hotel's general manager, Till Martin.
 
The property is on the Airport Express line and a short walk from the Futong subway station and the city's famed 798 Arts District.
 
The distinctive architecture of the new hotel was inspired by the Chinese "Sanhe Yuan," a home with a three-sided courtyard and green garden. The building sits in between two parks, which accentuates the "urban forest" design theme within. Natural light and organic materials are prominently featured in the lobby and throughout the building, giving guests the sense they are walking through a conservatory. Oak wood, beige marble, green marble and wood-grain patterned carpet define the guest room aesthetic as well.
 
Five on-site restaurants and bars offer a variety of local specialties and international fare. Three are currently open, while specialty restaurants featuring Chinese and Japanese specialties, respectively, will debut later this year.
 
The group-friendly hotel offers 60,277 square feet of meeting and event space, including the 14,746 square-foot Regency Ballroom, which features lush greenery and memorable views.
