Hyatt Place is set to make its Japan debut in 2019 when the Hyatt Place Tokyo Bay opens its doors. The new hotel will be situated near Tokyo Disney Resort at Urayasu City in Chiba Prefecture, approximately 20 kilometres from Haneda Airport and 50 kilometres from Narita Airport.

The Hyatt Place brand is among the more casual and technology-focused of Hyatt’s offerings. “The new Hyatt Place Tokyo Bay will have the feel of a resort with beautiful surroundings, including a park and views of Tokyo Bay, something that is sure to satisfy both business and leisure travellers,” said Shinya Ozawa, president and CEO of Sogo Development Co, the parent company of Tokyo Bay Resort Development Co with which Hyatt has entered into an agreement for the property.

“We will continue to work alongside Hyatt to create a hotel that is loved and valued by all guests while still meeting the high expectations of the people living in the area.”

In addition to its 365 guestrooms including two suites, the ten-storey hotel will have some 180 sqm of meeting space along with an all-day dining facility and a 24-hour gym.

“The opening will mark a very important milestone for Hyatt’s brand growth strategy as the company expands its portfolio in key locations within the country to increase preference among guests,” said Hirohide Abe, senior vice president of Hyatt, Japan and Micronesia.

Key among these is the new Hyatt Centric Ginza in Tokyo, which is set to open in 2018 and is among 12 new Hyatt Centric-brand properties that are slated to open by the end of 2019. In addition to the Hyatt Place Tokyo Bay, Hyatt Place will also be making its Malaysia debut in 2019 with the Hyatt Place Melaka Gateway.
