Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced that the Joie de Vivre Hotels brand will make its debut in Asia with a property housed in the vibrant Sanlitun shopping, bar and entertainment area in Chaoyang District, Beijing, China’s capital city. Expected to open in Q4 2019, the 202-room BEI Zhaolong Hotel aims to welcome urban nomads with a dynamic community hub that will reinvigorate one of the city’s most eclectic neighborhoods.
Joie de Vivre features an incomparable collection of truly individual hotels that embrace their location’s essence, offering spirited guests a vibrant and socially inclusive stay. With its ‘joy of life’ ethos, each Joie de Vivre hotel connects fun-seeking travelers to the local community through design, cuisine, thoughtful technology, and joy-driven service.
BEI Zhaolong Hotel is a rebirth of the legendary Zhaolong Hotel, which held a significant place in Beijing’s hospitality history since its opening in 1985. Following its extensive renovation and re-imagination, the hotel will usher in a new era of playful travel and inclusive, heartfelt hospitality.
Optimally located in Sanlitun, one of the most famous leisure and entertaining hubs in the capital, the 202-room BEI Zhaolong Hotel will harness the energy of the city with the joy of living in modern-day Beijing. Modern sensibilities and digital innovation will combine to create a hotspot for professionals, business travelers and locals coming together to meet, work, eat, or shop.
Drawing inspiration from its locality, the hotel’s informal eatery, BEI Commune, will bring travelers and Beijingers from all walks of life together to experience meaningful connections in an open and playful space.
BEI Zhaolong Hotel is expected to open in the last quarter of 2019. Hyatt will continue to explore more opportunities to expand the Joie de Vivre brand and create locally-inspired community hubs within the Asia Pacific region.
