Hyatt Place Takes A Bite Out of the Big Apple

Taxis, skyscrapers, and MoMA await! It’s official – the first Hyatt Place has debuted in New York City with the opening of Hyatt Place New York/Midtown-South. Located on W 36th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues in Manhattan, the hotel is close to everything quintessential NYC (Times Square, the Empire State Building, Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, the theaters of Broadway…). Not to mention the convenient access to Herald Square, Rockefeller Center and Penn Station.

We couldn’t be more excited to bring Hyatt Place to the Big Apple, and in fact, this opening in one of the world’s biggest metropolitan markets represents a new forte for the upscale select service brand. Hyatt Place is venturing out beyond its tried and true suburban and airport spots on the map.

As Chris Walker, vice president of brands for Hyatt Place and Hyatt House, told us:

“Hyatt Place guests may be accustomed to seeing our brand in suburban and airport locations, but we feel there is also demand in downtown locations for the accessibility, convenience and overall experience the brand provides. Hyatt Place delivers a seamless experience to meet the needs of our guests’ multi-tasking 24//7 lifestyles, so what better place to showcase that experience than The City that Never Sleeps!”

On the heels of the recent Hyatt Place opening in downtown Austin, business and leisure travelers should be on the lookout for anticipated Hyatt Place openings in more urban locations, including Chicago’s River North neighborhood, New York City’s Times Square and Queen’s Flushing neighborhood, and Washington D.C.’s NoMa neighborhood.

Additional downtown locations for the brand are expected to open in: Minneapolis, Minnesota; Charlotte, North Carolina; Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska; Nashville, Tennessee; Panama City, Panama; and Santiago, Chile; among others.
