Hyatt has signed a franchise agreement with
Resolution Property, which has teamed up with specialist real
estate firm Berkeley Capital Group, to develop a Hyatt Place hotel
at Black Lion House on Whitechapel Road in Aldgate, London.
Hyatt Place London City/East will be a
280-room hotel managed by Cycas Hospitality and will mark the
fourth collaboration with Cycas Hospitality on select service
Hyatt hotels in Europe.
Slated to open in
2020, Hyatt Place London City/East will be the third Hyatt Place
hotel in Greater London, joining Hyatt Place London Heathrow
Airport and Hyatt Place West London/Hayes.
The hotel will feature a
ninth-floor hotel lounge and terrace providing scenic views across
London, a flexible meeting room concept, further lobby area, inner
courtyard, gym, and a grab-and-go food market.
“Securing planning is a
significant achievement, and it is fantastic that we can now move
forward with the development of Black Lion House into a Hyatt
Place hotel, supported by our partner Berkeley Capital Group,”
said Head of UK Investment Oliver Jackson, Resolution
Property. “Bringing the Hyatt Place brand into central London
perfectly demonstrates Resolution’s approach as a pioneering
developer focused on creating new and exciting hotel destinations
in collaboration with world-leadingbrands, such as Hyatt Place,
to meet the needs of emerging and future demands.”
Hyatt Place London City/East will be the seventh
Hyatt-branded hotel in the UK, joining Hyatt Regency London The
Churchill, Andaz London Liverpool Street, Hyatt Place West
London/Hayes, Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport, Hyatt Regency
Birmingham, and the Great Scotland Yard Hotel London, which is
expected to open early 2019.
