Hyatt Regency Makes Its Return to Xi'an In Northwest China

Hyatt Regency Xi'an opens in Xi’an, the capital of Shaanxi province in northwest China, and marks the return of the Hyatt Regency brand to one of China’s oldest cities. The 298-room Hyatt Regency hotel fosters connections and serves as a dynamic, energizing place where guests can collaborate and find inspiration.

“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.

Guestrooms

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.

For exclusivity above all else, the Presidential and Chairman’s Suites boasts a sprawling grass terrace, a private outdoor pool and an in-room kitchen, while the latter offers its own Jacuzzi and massage room spread over two floors.

Authentic Culinary Experiences

The restaurants at Hyatt Regency Xi’an build off Hyatt’s history of culinary excellence, while showcasing the best of the city and its storied history. A unified design theme runs through all the outlets, infusing each space with symbolic elements of the fortune that has graced the city since its inception.

The Lounge begins guests’ culinary journey with three separate spaces decorated to reflect different regions of the Silk Road. Light snacks and signature offerings are served throughout the day, and its tranquil lakeside setting makes it the perfect spot to enjoy a coffee or a glass of champagne in the evening.

Market Cafe bustles with activity as the hotel’s all-day dining restaurant, serving delicacies from East and West with lively show kitchens. A la carte items are prepared to guests’ requests and the restaurant’s variety makes this restaurant a popular choice for all occasions.

Hu Pan offers authentic fare from around China with a focus on northern signatures and local Xi’an specialties, from Xi’an-style wraps stuffed with abalone to Beijing duck fired with date wood. The restaurant features high, exposed arched roofs and 10 private dining rooms.

Flawless Events and Magical Weddings

Hyatt Regency Xi’an features more than 43,000 square feet (4,000 square meters) of pillar-less, naturally lit event space serviced by professional event, catering and Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Events (MICE) teams.

The flexible spaces include a 13,100-square foot (1,220-square meter) Regency Ballroom ideal for large meetings and events, a 4,600-square foot (405-square meter) Regency Salon and a standalone Pavilion featuring nine versatile rooms set around a central sky lit atrium.

Weddings are available in all the event spaces of the hotel, highlighted by an elegant outdoor lakeside chapel.

Wellness and Relaxation

Guests are invited to recharge in the hotel’s FLO Spa and fitness facilities. An oversized Zen rock garden welcomes guests into a temple of relaxation designed after the Chinese theme of “shan shui,” a totem of the timeless beauty of the natural world. Featuring eight luxurious suites and a relaxation area, guests can enjoy treatments that are inspired by traditional principles and natural ingredients.

The 1,890-square foot (176-square meter) glass-walled fitness center is fully stocked with Life Fitness equipment and a separate yoga room. A large adjacent heated indoor pool comes complete with cushioned day beds and a dedicated bar.

I could have used this hotel when I was in Xi'an in May, especially with DSU that I need to use. Looks brand new.

Any reviews of this property? I'm also interested in its location: how convenient is it for walking through the walled city and for access to the TC warriors?

Thanks for any advice.

Had a stay here a few weeks ago. Since there don't seem to be any reviews here on FT I'll add a few notes.

The property is very nice and quite large. It is 4 stories tall in a newer area of Xi'An. One of our guides said area is considered one the most desirable places to live around the city. The hotel over looks Qujiang Lake which is quite nice. The lake is a great spot to take walks along or go for a run. At night many of the buildings and trees are lit up and it looks fantastic.

Hotel staff were extremely helpful and the service was the best I have received in China. Check in for Globs is completed via the Regency Club desk, so we were escorted up stairs for a more private check in process. We used a suite upgrade and where given a Regency Suite on the top floor. The room was well appointed with the highlight being the multiple balconies overlooking the lake. The suite is very good size, around 100 sqm.

The property reached out a few days before to ask when we would be arriving. We took an overnight train into Xi'an and had an early arrival in the am. The hotel had the suite ready for us when we got there around 9am. This was a pleasant surprise and greatly appreciated.

Breakfast was held at the Market Cafe on the main level. It was quite nice with a ton of options at the buffet. For close food options outside of the hotel there is a nice mall across the street with plenty of good dining spots. The Regency Club has a pretty good offering in the evenings for drinks and appetizers.

My only complaint about the property is location is not very close to the city center for seeing sights nor is it very close to the subway. Taxis are cheap however. One other item to note, Google Maps does not have the correct location for the hotel. If you type in "Beluga World Children's Paradise, Xian China" you will get a closer spot to the actual location. I would happily stay here again if I ever am in Xi'an. Attached are a few photos I took around the property (the lobby, the lake at night, and the living room of the suite). Sorry I didn't take more photos!

I was Xian last week for 3 nights, leisure travel. Although I didnt like The Ramada Bell Tower, I LOVED its location < 5 min walk to The Bell tower and Muslim Q and < 15 to the Southern Gate

I think if a person is going to XIY for leisure then its best to skip the Chain Hotels and simply book any nice hotel with a short walking distance to The Bell Tower. Taxis maybe cheap by traffic is horrendous, which I experienced the days I had a driver.The day I enjoyed the most was the day I didnt have the driver and simply walked out of the hotel and took in the main sights on foot. when I return some day I will do the same and stay within the walls at a non-chain close to The Bell Tower.

The Westin is across the street from The Big Wild Pagoda yet far from everything else. Had it been a business trip then the likes of The HR would work if thats area I needed to be at
