Hyatt Hotels & Resorts announced today the official opening of Hyatt Regency Chandigarh in Northern India. Located 153 miles (246 kilometres) from India’s capital of Delhi, Hyatt Regency Chandigarh is the first Hyatt-branded hotel to open in Chandigarh, the city planned by world renowned Swiss-French architect and planner Le Corbusier.
“We are delighted to welcome the first Hyatt-branded hotel to the beautifully planned city of Chandigarh,” said Kurt Straub, vice president of operations for Hyatt in India. “Hyatt Regency Chandigarh has been thoughtfully designed to make guests feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed, so that they can socialize, connect and celebrate any occasion. I am confident that this contemporary new hotel will add to the appeal of Le Corbusier's charming city and introduce Hyatt’s well-known hospitality to guests and residents.”
As part of the Hyatt Regency brand, Hyatt Regency Chandigarh has been conceived to foster connections and serve as a dynamic, energizing space where guests can collaborate, share and find inspiration. The hotel is central to the city’s business hub and is part of a premium development that includes the Elante Mall and an office complex that houses key multi-national companies and diplomatic missions. With excellent links and travel connections, the hotel is a 20-minute drive from Chandigarh International Airport and eight minutes to the Chandigarh Junction railway station.“We are delighted to bring this hotel to the heart of Chandigarh’s Tri-City,” said General Manager Puneet Baijal. “Hyatt Regency Chandigarh is a modern hotel that embodies both the city’s design ethos and its residents’ desire for modern accommodations, excellent service and exciting places to eat and drink.”
