Hyatt’s in a New York State of Mind
We predict that 2010 will mark the year that Hyatt took New York City by storm. This year alone, we’ve gone from just one hotel – Grand Hyatt New York – to three, with the opening of Andaz Wall Street and Andaz 5th Avenue earlier this year. Now, Hyatt has announced plans for three additional hotels throughout Manhattan: Hyatt 48Lex, Park Hyatt New York and another Hyatt hotel located near Union Square.
Hyatt 48Lex, which is already under construction and is planning for a 2011 opening, is located on Lexington Avenue and 48th Street and marks the first hospitality project in over a decade to be completed from the ground up in Midtown Manhattan. The new hotel will have 116 rooms, which will all feature floor-to-ceiling windows, a butler’s pantry and the latest in-room technology. Plus, the hotel will be complete with a great American bistro restaurant, fitness center and several executive board rooms.
The Hyatt hotel near Union Square, which is also set to open in 2011, will feature 175 rooms and an innovative, modern design and with good reason – it will be surrounded by Manhattan’s most stylish neighborhoods, like Chelsea, Gramercy Park, and the Flatiron District. We’re working with our designers to make sure this hotel fits right in, with private terraces for select guestrooms, an exclusive rooftop lounge and a great, new restaurant inspired by the local and organic Greenmarket.
Park Hyatt New York will be a newly constructed hotel designed by world-renowned architect Christian de Portzamparc. The hotel is scheduled to open in 2012 and will be located at 157 West 57th Street between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue, across from the iconic Carnegie Hall. Aside from the 210 guestrooms, Park Hyatt New York will have 135 Thomas Juul-Hansen-designed luxury condos with amazing views of the famed Central Park and New York skyline.
Over the coming months, we promise to give you the behind-the-scenes look at exactly how we open a new hotel, with everything from a first look at the hotels’ design to new restaurant menus. But we want to know – what else do you want to know from us?
