The Hyatt Place brand is rooted in extensive consumer insights indicating that guests seek stylish, comfortable, seamless experiences that accommodate their lifestyles and familiar routines. To embody this, the brand offers casual hospitality and purposeful service in a smartly designed, high-tech and contemporary environment.
“We are delighted to expand the Hyatt Place brand in Melbourne, the second largest city Australia,” said Asia Pacific Group President David Udell, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “The hotel will mark the tenth Hyatt-branded hotel in Australia and it will be a great addition to Hyatt’s brand footprint in Melbourne, which includes Park Hyatt Melbourne, Grand Hyatt Melbourne, Hyatt Place Melbourne Essendon Fields, and a recently announced Hyatt Centric hotel in Melbourne.”
