Hyatt is to open a flagship Park Hyatt property in New York’s Manhattan district, joining other established brands by the group in the Big Apple including Andaz, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency and Hyatt Place.
The new-build hotel is due to open in 2012 and will be located at 157 West 57th Street, between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue, and across from the prestigious concert venue Carnegie Hall.
The 210-room hotel will be housed within a 90-storey mixed-use tower designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Christian de Portzamparc, which will also include 135 condiminiums.
Features will incude a “distinctive bar and restaurant”, 5,000 square feet of retail space, a grand ballroom, spa facilities, fitness centre, and an indoor swimming pool housed within a three-storey “aerie” at the top of the hotel.
The news follows Hyatt’s recent announcement that it will open two more hotels in Manhattan next year – an as yet unnamed 175-room property near Union Square, and a 116-room hotel in Midtown called Hyatt 48Lex (located on Lexington Avenue and 48 Street).
It’s been a busy period for the Hyatt in the Big Apple, with two Andaz properties opening this year on Wall Street and Fifth Avenue. The group also has a Grand Hyatt hotel located next to Grand Central station, as well as a Hyatt Regency property on the Hudson River, and several Hyatt Place and Hyatt Summerfield Suites locations in the greater New York area.
