Hyatt Hotels & Resorts and Dinapoli Capital Partners announce the opening of Hyatt Place San Jose/Downtown, the first Hyatt Place hotel in San Jose. Catering to business and leisure travelers alike, Hyatt Place San Jose/Downtown offers both complimentary continental breakfast, featuring the signature a.m. Kitchen SkilletTM, as well as complimentary Wi-Fi in all public spaces and guestrooms.
“As San Jose continues to grow and thrive economically, we are excited to add to the momentum by welcoming the first Hyatt Place property to the city,” said Gabi Quinoz, general manager of Hyatt Place San Jose/Downtown. “Whether we are catering to business travelers, leisure travelers or groups and meetings, we know that our guests will appreciate the comfortable and functional amenities offered at our hotel, such as free Wi-Fi, made-to-order fresh food around the clock and the StayFit@Hyatt fitness center.”
The opening of Hyatt Place San Jose/Downtown comes at an opportune time for the City of San Jose and Team San Jose (an innovative effort unifying the San Jose Convention and Visitors Bureau, hotels, arts, labor and venues) with the recently approved 125,000 square foot expansion of the Convention Center, which sits directly across the street from Hyatt Place San Jose/Downtown. Construction is underway with an anticipated completion in Fall 2013.
“The opening of Hyatt Place is exciting news for San Jose as a great destination for business and leisure travelers,” said Bill Sherry, CEO of Team San Jose and Director of Aviation at Mineta San Jose International Airport. “This is an industry indicator of tourism growth in San Jose. With the Convention Center project moving forward, having Hyatt Place right across the street strengthens San Jose’s hotel offerings and destination attributes to attract more conventions and meetings to the city.”
As the capital of Silicon Valley, San Jose is well positioned for continued success as a meetings and convention destination, especially with the recent completion of a $1.3 billion airport modernization project and the launch of the convention center expansion. Diverse in the city’s appeal, San Jose recently played host to the U.S. Figure Skating Championships and is looking forward to hosting the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team Trials in June.
