Affiliates of Global Hyatt Corporation have announced the signing of an agreement with Vivico Real Estate GmbH to operate a new 405-room Grand Hyatt in Frankfurt.Slated to open in 2011, the hotel will be part of a 541-foot (165 meter) tower featuring a modern and stylish design. It will be part of the “Europaviertel” in Frankfurt, currently being developed as Germany’s largest urban development project.
The facilities at Grand Hyatt Frankfurt will include a wide selection of restaurants and bars and a 10,765 square foot (1,000 square meter) fitness center and spa.
