Global Hyatt Corporation today announced that the Hyatt Place brand reached a total of 29 hotels operating in 13 states. The brand remains on track to make hospitality industry history by opening 120 hotels by year-end.
“These hotel openings are a milestone for both Global Hyatt Corporation and Hyatt Place and we’re on track to open our 50th hotel in May and will reach our projection of 120 by December,” said Jim Abrahamson, senior vice president, Hyatt Corporation. “Hyatt Place is making industry history through both its rapid growth, and by providing travelers with the only hotel brand that meets the demands of the blended lifestyles guests are living today.”
As a new kind of Hyatt hotel for today’s relaxed lifestyle, Hyatt Place offers travelers a new type of hospitality experience by combining innovative design, amenities and services. Hyatt Place was inspired by the changing landscape of contemporary, multi-tasking business travelers, who have successfully adapted to today’s “24/7 lifestyle,” seamlessly merging personal and professional activities. To help guests achieve this, Hyatt Place offers an atmosphere of casual hospitality with a balanced mix of comfortable and functional amenities.
Similar to what travelers might experience at home, guests can take advantage of free Wi-Fi access, stretch out on the eight-foot Cozy Corner sofa-sleeper or work at an oversized desk in an ergonomic chair. They can also catch the evening news, the big game or the latest feature movies on the 42-inch flat panel, high-definition television offering 11 channels of high-definition programming in addition to an already impressive channel selection.
Hyatt Place guests will also have access to Hotel SportsNetSM service, which includes NFL SUNDAY TICKET? and NBA LEAGUE PASSSM as well as other professional and college sports programming. Hyatt Place guests can stay connected through the innovative Hyatt Plug Panel?, which allows guests to connect their own entertainment media to the high-definition TV, including laptops, MP3 players, DVD players or any other portable device. The signature Hyatt Grand Bed? ensures guests can enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep in the bedroom area.
Hyatt Place hotels also feature the Gallery, an innovative welcoming arrival area where guests are personally greeted by the Gallery Host who assists guests with everything from check-in to providing personal tours of the hotel. In the Gallery, guests will also find a self-registration kiosk, an intimate coffee and wine café and bakery, free Wi-Fi, a TV den and an e-room with free access to public computers and a printer. Guests at Hyatt Place may purchase signature hot breakfast entrées along with Starbucks® specialty coffees or enjoy a free continental breakfast. Hyatt Place also offers a variety of freshly prepared, café quality items, including made-to-order entrées, sandwiches, soups, salads and pizza which guests can order 24 hours a day, seven days a week via a touch screen menu in the Guest Kitchen or from the Gallery Host.
