Hyatt Place San Juan/City Center Celebrates Official Opening
SAN JUAN – Hyatt Hotels Corp., PRISA Group and McConnell Valdés Consulting Inc. announced Monday the official opening of Puerto Rico’s fourth Hyatt-branded hotel, the $29 million Hyatt Place San Juan/City Center next to the Puerto Rico Convention Center in San Juan.
The 149-room hotel debuts after the opening of three Hyatt branded properties in Puerto Rico in the last two years: Hyatt Place San Juan/Bayamón, Hyatt Place Manatí and Hyatt House San Juan.
The hotel features the Hyatt Place brand’s design, casual atmosphere and amenities, such as free Wi-Fi and 24-hour food offerings, and a resort-style swimming pool and water feature for children as well as a digital artwork display on the building’s exterior by local artist Annette Vaccaro. The art installation along the hotel’s façade is the fourth collaboration of its kind between PRISA Group and Vaccaro.
“Hyatt Place San Juan/City Center opens in the midst of an historic moment in which the Puerto Rican tourism industry is experiencing a revival, seeing an increase in visitors, hotel reservations and rates in the last five years,” said Federico Stubbe Jr., president of PRISA Group.
Hyatt Place San Juan/City Center is under the leadership of General Manager Gisela Rivera, who will oversee the hotel’s 60 associates. Francisco Mariani will oversee the four Hyatt-branded hotels on the island with the support of Area Sales Director Laura Soto-Reyes. “As the leisure and business travel industry in San Juan and Puerto Rico as a whole continues to grow, we are excited to add to the momentum by welcoming the third Hyatt Place and fourth Hyatt-branded hotel to the local market,” Mariani said in the published announcement.
Hyatt Place has more than 235 locations in the United States, Armenia, Chile, China, Costa Rica, Honduras, India, Mexico, Morocco, Nicaragua, Panama, Puerto Rico, The Netherlands, and United Arab Emirates.
