Hyatt Regency Dusseldorf opens in the German city’s Media Harbour lifestyle district
Saturday 18, December 2010
Hyatt Hotels and Resorts have announced the opening of Hyatt Regency Dusseldorf located in the heart of the trendy Media Harbour area in the capital of the state North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany.
Hyatt Regency Dusseldorf is located in one of two newly built 19-story towers at the tip of Media Harbour’s peninsula. A pedestrian bridge connects the hotel with the opposite side of the harbor. With its central location close to the city’s international airport, and the most important exhibition and conference centers in the city, the hotel will attract business and leisure travelers.
The hotel opens today with nearly all guestrooms available. DOX Restaurant, including its bar and sushi bar, the fitness center, and the hotel’s meeting rooms and ballroom are also open. Additional hotel services and amenities expected to be complete by mid-February 2011 include the Regency Club™, Rive Spa, the hotel’s premier suites, and Pebble’s restaurant.
Design and Guestrooms
Renowned Dutch interior design firm FG stijl Amsterdam used warm colors, glass and plenty of daylight to create Hyatt Regency Dusseldorf’s distinctive appearance. Ceiling-high windows in the public areas allow for expansive views of Media Harbour and Old Town.
The hotel’s 290 guestrooms and 13 suites will feature modern technology, including flat-screen televisions, high-speed Internet access, MP3 docking stations, tea- and coffee-making facilities, as well as separate work areas. Large bathrooms, including rain showers and bath tubs, will create an in-room wellness experience for travelers.
For guests who desire an extra level of personalized service, the hotel will offer Regency Club accommodation, which includes the services of a dedicated concierge and access to a private lounge on the 18th floor of the hotel. Complimentary continental breakfast and afternoon coffee and tea are available, as well as a selection of beverages and canapés in the evening for a minimal surcharge.
Meeting and Event Venues
Offering more than 9,000 square feet (850 square meters) of event space, Hyatt Regency Dusseldorf offers venues for functions of many kinds. The 4,700 square-foot (445-square-meter) multifunctional ballroom can easily be converted into two separate rooms and is an ideal solution for large-scale gatherings and product presentations. Meeting and event attendees may also enjoy a view of the top of both buildings through a water-flooded glass ceiling.
An abundance of natural daylight ensures a creative ambience in all four meeting rooms on the hotel’s ground level, which include an exclusive boardroom with an oak table that comfortably seats 14 people, and two River Salons located just steps from DOX Restaurant. Each salon offers 24 seats, making them an ideal venue for private dinners. When combined, these two rooms form an excellent space for standing receptions for up to 100 guests.
Restaurants and Bars
The hotel’s four restaurants and bars will present an array of culinary diversity on the edge of the harbor. Classic European dishes made with fresh regional produce grace the menu of DOX restaurant, which features an open kitchen and a view onto the Rhine River. The restaurant’s sushi bar allows diners to escape into a multi-faceted world of Japanese flavors.
DOX Bar is situated along the Catwalk, which connects the hotel lobby with the restaurants. It is an ideal venue to prepare for a night out in the city while enjoying tapas and a specialty martini.
The Lounge, which adjoins the bar, carries a wide selection of international magazines. Coffee specialties, cocktails and light snacks are also served by the fireplace.
With access from the river bank, Café D caters to hotel guests, hotel associates, and employees of nearby offices, offering them healthy breakfasts, lunches, or dinners in a contemporary and relaxed ambience.
When it opens in mid-February, champagne enthusiasts will take pleasure in Pebble’s 360-degree panoramic view of Media Harbour, along with delicacies and a wide selection of champagnes that will also be served on the inviting terrace during the summer months.
Spa and Fitness
After a productive day, the 5,200 square-foot (485-square-meter) Rive Spa at Hyatt Regency Dusseldorf will offer valuable time off from daily life when it opens in February. Five treatment rooms will give guests the liberty to pamper themselves with various massages and cosmetic treatments. A Vichy shower room, whirlpool, sauna and steam bath, as well as an inviting open-air terrace, will beautifully enhance the spa experience.
The state-of-the-art fitness studio, which is available to guests now, features premium equipment from TechnoGym and allows for an effective workout away from home.

More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
