Hyatt has opened two new hotels directly adjacent to Los Angeles International airport under its Hyatt House and Hyatt Place brands.
This marks the first dual-branded Hyatt development in the Los Angeles area and comprises 401 rooms across Hyatt Place LAX/Century Blvd and Hyatt House LAX/Century Blvd.
The building was originally built in 1967 by architect Welton Becket, who also designed the airport’s Theme Building. The new properties feature mid-century modern design by firm Carrier Johnson and Culture, inspired by the building’s 1960s architecture with statement pieces such as a vintage pool table in the lobby and waffle ceilings retrofitted from the previous office building.
Rooms at both hotels have floor-to-ceiling windows offering runway views, a warm colour palette with tones of tan, brown and black, geometric carpet designs, and recessed waffle ceilings. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, Kenet MD bath products, a coffee maker, mini fridge and work desk.
The 272-room Hyatt Place LAX/Century Blvd offers rooms with separate spaces to sleep, work and play, while the 129-room Hyatt House LAX/Century Blvd is designed for extended stays, offering apartment-style suites with fully equipped kitchens and living rooms. Guests staying at either hotel will benefit from shared services and amenities.
The hotels have collaborated with LA-based Greenleaf Kitchen and Cocktails to offer two dining venues: a healthy gourmet restaurant of the same name on the lobby level, and upscale dining concept Shores LAX on the 15th floor rooftop with 360-degree views of the LAX runways.
Leisure facilities include the tallest rooftop terrace and only outdoor rooftop pool in the airport district, featuring cabanas and views of planes arriving and departing, and a 175 sqm fitness centre with equipment including Peloton bikes.
The two properties offer over 288 sqm of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting space for up to 180 guests, including two meeting rooms called Malibu and Melrose, and the dining venues are also available for private hire.
Kenan Tekin, general manager of the hotels, commented:
“We are excited to introduce this impressive property to the LAX airport market,” said General Manager Kenan Tekin. “Located next to one of the busiest airports in the U.S., Hyatt Place LAX / Century Blvd and Hyatt House LAX / Century Blvd provide a new level of convenience and a host of exceptional amenities for travelers going through LAX. We’ve put an emphasis on high-comfort, resort-style amenities not found elsewhere in the airport district – from our fitness center and rooftop pool to the unparalleled dining options at Greenleaf and ShoresLAX – that will attract both travelers and locals alike.”
