Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today the opening of Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang in East China’s Jiangsu province. Set atop the East Tower of Suning Plaza, the highest skyscraper in Zhenjiang, the 318-room Hyatt Regency hotel is set to provide travelers and locals alike with a fresh perspective of the city by providing an energizing place to connect with the very best of Zhenjiang.
“We are very excited to unveil Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang and further expand our Hyatt Regency brand presence in the fast-growing Yangtze River Delta region. We are very grateful for the continuous support and trust of the hotel’s owner, the Suning Group, endowing Hyatt with another amazing hotel in Jiangsu province,” said Stephen Ho, President, Greater China, Global Operations for Hyatt. “China continues to see strong development momentum due to the increase in business and leisure travel. With the upscale offerings and energizing spaces that the Hyatt Regency brand is known for, we hope Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang will provide our guests with a seamless experience that connects them to who and what matters most when visiting Zhenjiang.”
Located at the heart of the Da Shi Kou central business district, Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang is conveniently accessible to shopping, entertainment venues and famous tourism sites, including Xijindu Ancient Street, Beigushan Park, Zhenjiang China Vinegar Culture Museum and Nanshan Scenic Area. The hotel is just 12 minutes from Zhenjiang Railway Station, 90 minutes from Nanjing Lukou International Airport and a 30-minute drive to the neighboring city of Yangzhou via Runyang Bridge.
Zhenjiang, sitting at the intersection of the Yangtze River and the Grand Canal, is a wellspring of history, culture and cuisine. While the monumental Yangtze River and statuesque Beigu Mountain represent the traditional side of Zhenjiang, the city is set for a vibrant future with its contemporary offerings and fast-growing developments.

The chic interiors of Hyatt Regency Zhenjiang tell a story of the charm of Wu culture, imbued with soothing natural elements reflecting the river, water, tower, and forests. Starting at the artistic lobby on the 57th floor, the hotel features two sky-high restaurants and lounges, dynamic event spaces, comprehensive wellbeing facilities, and a rooftop helipad.
