Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the opening of Hyatt Centric Gaoxin Xi’an, a lifestyle hotel located ideally for travelers to immerse themselves in the heart of the action in the vibrant Xi’an Hi-Tech Zone. The hotel – featuring 231 stylish guestrooms including 11 spacious suites with balconies – offers both an ideal stay for business guests and is located within walking proximity to the central business district. Distinct of the Hyatt Centric brand, Hyatt Centric Gaoxin Xi’an is a perfect launchpad for savvy, adventurous leisure travelers looking to explore all that the historic capital has to offer.
With Hyatt Centric Gaoxin Xi’an’s prime location, guests will experience the neighborhood’s modern vibe and discover authentic gems, including local markets, eateries specializing in traditional delicacies, museums, cultural districts, and China’s oldest folk opera theater. Many of Xi’an’s legendary historical landmarks are also just a short drive away, including UNESCO World Heritage sites built during the city’s ancient reign as the capital of China’s Tang Dynasty. With convenient access to local transportation hubs and bicycles available to borrow, guests can follow their curious spirit and explore the city with ease.
“Xi’an is a destination packed with history and must-see sights. We are excited to provide guests a central starting point to entice exploration of the city’s rich history, local customs, traditions, and cuisines,” said Mariano Silvestri, General Manager, Hyatt Centric Gaoxin Xi’an. “With our modern guestrooms, passionately engaged service, and dynamic dining and social spaces, guests can also look forward to a comfortable stay combined with shareworthy experiences.”
Thoughtfully conceptualized by renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the design of Hyatt Centric Gaoxin Xi’an offers a stylish reimagination of Tang Dynasty culture that pays tribute to Xi’an as a center of trade and prosperity at the start point of the ancient Silk Road. A haven for modern-day travelers, the hotel presents a shimmering silvery façade that exudes the ethereal quality of woven silk, set within a refreshing oasis of greenery. Stepping into the lobby, guests are greeted by a seamless blend of avant-garde design elements and heritage inspirations, infused with transportation-inspired details that reflect Xi’an’s glorious journey from its Silk Road past to high-tech present.
In contrast to the dynamic energy of the hotel’s lobby area, the guestrooms and suites surround guests in an atmosphere of calm. A palette of warm wood, bamboo green wallpaper and plush carpets underfoot create an inviting home-base, enhanced by sumptuous super king-sized beds, retro-chic furnishings, a spa-like terrazzo bathroom, and floor-to-ceiling windows offering spectacular city views. Modern room amenities also include an independent Panasonic nanoe™ X air-purification system, while richly detailed finishes celebrating the character of the destination include specially commissioned silk wall art and horseshoe-shaped room numbers that evoke a Silk Road feel.
For the ultimate indulgence, the Hospitality Suite offers 3,692-square-feet (343-square-metres) of space with separate living and dining rooms, an open kitchen, and an elliptical bathtub for a relaxing soak. Guests’ four-legged friends will also find a warm welcome at the hotel with pet packages providing essential pet amenities in-room, and a nearby park, making walks easy and convenient.
Guests can dine day or night at Zhangba No2 Restaurant & Bar, a chic Chinese bistro and relaxed social spot in the lobby, featuring a shareworthy lounge and bar, exclusive private dining rooms and a lush bamboo-filled terrace. Unique, locally inspired dishes and beverages are the stars on a menu offering innovative twists on classic dishes and delicious drinks made with fresh, local ingredients. After a day exploring or working in the city, the bar is the perfect place to unwind with premium local spirits, craft brews and signature cocktails.
The hotel’s prized location in the heart of the Xi’an Hi-Tech Zone, coupled with a total of 6,533-square-feet (607-square-meters) of unique event space, creative menus and unparalleled service, makes it a great place to gather and entertain. This includes the vast Hospitality Suite on the top floor, an impressive space for private dinners and cocktail parties, framed by panoramic skyline views. Zhangba No2’s two partitioned private dining rooms on the ground floor with floor-to-ceiling windows are ideal for hosting a family dinner and can be joined together to create a larger space for exclusive meetings and presentations. Alongside the dining rooms is a 2,023-square-foot (188-square-meters) outdoor terrace set amidst a lush forest of bamboo, a unique oasis in the city for celebrating any occasion in inspiring style.
