Hyatt has announced plans to debut its Unbound Collection brand in Germany’s financial hub of Frankfurt.
Kennedy 89 is set to open later this year in the city’s Sachsenhausen district, and will offer 181 rooms (68 of which will be suites), all with private balconies and kitchenettes.
The name of the hotel has been inspired by its location at the intersection of Kennedy Allee and Stresemann Allee, and the property’s curved facade has been inspired by the flow of Frankfurt’s River Main.
Facilities will include a ground floor destination restaurant with outdoor seating, as well as first floor and rooftop bars, a fitness centre, underground parking and meeting and events space.
Kennedy 89 will join Hyatt Place Frankfurt Airport as the group’s second hotel in the city, and is also the second property under the Unbound Collection portfolio in Germany, after The Wellem in Dusseldorf.
Hyatt launched The Unbound Collection in 2016, which it describes as “a portfolio of new and existing upper-upscale hotel properties, ranging from historic urban gems to contemporary trend-setters, boutique properties to resorts and private home accommodations”.
Recent additions include Rancho Pescadero in Mexico’s Baja California Sur, and the Grayson Hotel in New York’s Midtown Manhattan.
Commenting on the news Felicity Black-Roberts, vice president, development for Europe and North Africa, Hyatt, said:
“With Frankfurt being one of the world’s leading financial centres, we are delighted to announce plans for the first hotel in The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in the city with this one-of-a-kind property, marking an important milestone in our impressive luxury brand growth in Europe.
“The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand celebrates the individuality of each property and the rich stories within to provide guests story-worthy experiences.
“We are honoured to collaborate with SIC Hospitality GmbH on this project to bring their distinct vision to life in such a key destination that is sure to attract global travellers and locals alike.”
