Hangzhou's most recognizable and centrally located hotel, the Hyatt Regency combines careful service, comfortable rooms, and a great location. Rooms are sleekly furnished and beds ultrasoft; be sure to ask for a room on an upper floor for unobstructed views. A large indoor swimming pool, adjacent to the spa, overlooks West Lake. The hotel is home to excellent Chinese and Western restaurants, and breakfast can be enjoyed on a quiet lake-side terrace. About two blocks north
is the Hubin Yi Park Dock, where you can catch boats that ply the lake.
