Sky-high business haven: Park Hyatt Guangzhou

A glimpse inside Guangzhou's top business address for work travellers

Occupying the 53rd to 70th floors of a skyscraper in the financial heart of southern China’s most populous city, the Park Hyatt Guangzhou offers jaw-dropping views no matter where you are in the hotel. Sophisticated interiors and attentive service further raise the prestige factor, making this Guangzhou’s top address for work travel.

The hotel is perched amid the gleaming skyline of Tianhe district’s Zhujiang New Town, which puts it in walking distance to major financial buildings as well as cultural landmarks including the Zaha Hadid-designed opera house. The Metro station is just steps away, too, and a 15-minute taxi ride will have you at Guangzhou East Railway Station.

The Rooms

An earthy, minimalist vibe pervades the guest rooms, thanks to the efforts of Japanese design firm Super Potato. The calming atmosphere is conducive to getting work done, as is the Nespresso coffee and hitch-free Wi-Fi. The largest suites have spacious living rooms and full dining sets, great for informal meetings.

One floor is dedicated to meeting space, which can be configured into conference rooms or single-table setups. Floor-to-ceiling windows let in natural light – and those sky-high panoramas. Other places for the views: the gym, the indoor pool and the Roof Bar, which has an outdoor terrace facing Canton Tower across the Pearl River – a sight that just never gets old.
