A gong stroke in Beijing

The competition has just begun. The luxury hotels are almost ready to accommodate the best way the can the next Summer Olympic Games. In the race to open on time before this major event, the Park Hyatt is one of the last to pass the finish line. However, it is not the less promising. Opposite the World Trade Centre, the hotel is located in the last floors of the highest tower of the Beijing Yintai Centre (249,9 m). At the centre of the futurist complex with its three buildings designed by the American architect John Portman, the Park Hyatt Beijing is part of the residential programme of the Yintai Centre. In addition to its 237 rooms, a mixture of Oriental aesthetic and contemporary design, the building incorporates 21 Park Hyatt Penthouses, to be sold to individual owners, and 216 Park Hyatt Residences, serviced apartments for longer stays. All of them will benefit from the services associated to the ho-tel. The first six floors of this “city within a city” host the Park Life, designed by the Japanese specialist SuperPotato. The vast recreational open space includes several bars, a trattoria, private rooms to enjoy a luxurious Cantonese cuisine, luxury retail boutiques, a health club and a swimming pool. It is also in the Park Life that are located the numerous meeting and banqueting areas. The Park Hyatt also features a panoramic restaurant on the 66th floor and a jazz bar on the 65th floor. Will this one have the same success as the one in the Park Hyatt Tokyo, which won an eternal fame through Lost In Translation?
