The Hyatt Regency Shanghai, Wujiaochang has opened in Wujiaochang, a business and university district in Shanghai, East China. Wujiaochang, meaning “hub of five avenues,” highlights the location of the 306-room hotel, which is situated beside Wujiaochang Station on Metro Line 10, accessible to Shanghai Pudong International Airport and Shanghai Hongqiao Airport. Connected with the spirit and culture of its destination, traditional Chinese symbolism is subtly integrated throughout the contemporary hotel design. The artistic journey begins with a sculptural installation of Propitious Clouds, a Chinese symbol for good fortune, in the ground-floor arrival lobby. Eight art panels inspired by Chinese folding screens feature an oversized floral motif—one of the many stylized nature elements in this garden-style oasis.
Upon arrival on the sixth floor Sky Lobby, there is an open view into the conservatory garden, a 115-ft.-high central atrium inspired by the internal courtyard of traditional Chinese residences. Canopied by a glass roof and landscaped in the style of a classic Chinese garden with bonsai, rockeries and flowering trees, the garden is visible to guests throughout the hotel.
Guestrooms include 17 suites, ranging in size from 430 sq. ft. to 2,249 sq. ft. All rooms offer views of Wujiaochang and the Shanghai skyline through floor-to-ceiling windows. Complimentary wired and wireless internet access, a 48-in. LED TV with cable and satellite channels, and a Bluetooth stereo are among the amenities. An oversized table functions as both a work desk and a dining table.
Seventeen contemporary suites offer a separate bedroom, bathroom and living area. A selection of in-room amenities includes a 60-in. LED TV, Nespresso coffee machine, walk-in closet, marble bathroom and a large bathtub by the window. Regency Club guestrooms have access to the Regency Club, a lounge providing personalized guest services, daily breakfast, all-day refreshments and evening cocktails and canapés.
