Park Hyatt Hamburg – my ‘go to’ hotel in Hamburg for the last 15 years – is to close at the end of 2022.
The hotel lease is up at the end of the year and Hyatt has chosen not to renew it.
The hotel will close for refurbishment but will not be part of Hyatt, even under a different brand, when it reopens.
This is a real loss for Hyatt, although the hotel rooms had begun to look a little dated. Rooms here are large, there are plenty of suites, the restaurant serves easily the best hotel breakfast buffet in Germany and the pool and spa are excellent. You also can’t beat the location, especially if arriving by train from the airport.
The problem, I think, is that Hamburg – despite being an exceptionally wealthy city – has always struggled to support a lot of high-end hotels. My wife’s corporate rate at Park Hyatt Hamburg was under €200.
It was (and until the year end, remains) a ludicrously good deal via Hyatt Prive for one night stays. You would pay €200-ish and get an €85 food and drink credit and free breakfast. I’d often get a club room thrown in as my upgrade – you literally struggled to get through all the free food and drink thrown at you.
If you’re looking for a replacement hotel, my recent review of the refurbished Le Meridien Hamburg is here.
