We have been working with Hyatt to bring you details of 10 new World of Hyatt hotels opening in 2024 which would resonate with a UK audience. They chose well, and I think that most of you will find at least a couple of these properties tempting.
Park Hyatt London River Thames
It’s finally happening. London is to get its first Park Hyatt. Located in Nine Elms / Vauxhall, this isn’t a neighbourhood that will be familiar for most tourists, although the new US Embassy and redevelopment of Battersea Power Station is certainly changing that. The Park Hyatt London River Thames will take up the lower 18 floors of a 42-storey tower currently under construction. An unconventional location and new build development suggest its success will all come down to the quality of the fit and finish, although I’m confident that Hyatt will be able to pull it off given my experience at other Park Hyatt hotels. Opening mid 2024. The hotel website is here.
Hyatt House, Leeds
Hyatt Place Leeds
Hyatt’s regional UK portfolio is a little thin, so it’s good to see it invest in a 305-room, dual-brand Hyatt House and Hyatt Place hotel in the Sovereign Square development in Leeds. Split between the short stay and long stay brands, the hotel is 12 storeys high and features a rooftop bar. Opening late 2024.
Hyatt’s footprint of all-inclusive resorts is gaining Zoëtry Halkidiki in Greece. The radial 105-room resort sits atop a cliff with views of Mount Olympus and the Aegean Sea on the Halkidiki peninsula with access via a “panoramic lift” (funicular?) to the beach below. It is only the second of Hyatt’s Zoëtry all-inclusive resorts in Europe, with the first having opened in 2021 in Mallorca (the old Hilton site). Two restaurants, a buffet and three bars and lounges will keep fed and watered. Opening mid 2024. The hotel website is here.
Andaz Amsterdam Prinsengracht
Although not a new hotel, Andaz Amsterdam Prinsgengracht, which I reviewed in 2022, is in the process of getting a full refurbishment. It was an excellent hotel when I stayed, with lovely rooms and a gorgeous courtyard connecting the old Dutch buildings with a newer extension at the rear. We will have to wait and see what direction the refurbishment takes, but in the meantime you can read my review here.
Park Hyatt Marrakech
Better late than never …. the Park Hyatt is a holdover from our list last year, but has just opened in the last few days.
Part of the Al Maaden development outside of the Medina, the Park Hyatt offers a resort-style retreat 10-15 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of the city. True to its name, the resort will be surrounded by landscaping and what appears to be a large lake with a dramatic setting against the Atlas mountains. There are 181 rooms, built in clusters around common courtyards, as well as 45 private villas with private pools. Open now. The hotel website is here.
Thompson Palm Springs
At least seven new Thompson hotels are expected to open in the next two years, and one of them will be the Thompson Palm Springs. Perched in the heart of the Design District in downtown Palm Springs, the hotel hopes to embrace the laid-back Palm Springs lifestyle with its own urban oasis. 168 rooms, of which 18 are suites, will look out towards the mountains, a view shared by the rooftop pool. Opening mid 2024. The hotel website is here.
Andaz Miami Beach
A 1940s icon, the Confidante Hotel Miami Beach is currently undergoing a $60m renovation that will see it emerge as Florida’s first Andaz. A new lobby will offer an ocean-view check-in experience whilst all guestrooms and public spaces are getting a full transformation. Located in mid beach, the hotel is easily accessible from the airport and a gateway to South Beach. Opening late 2024.
Hotel Toranomon Hills, The Unbound Collection
Part of Hyatt’s Unbound Collection of boutique hotels, Hotel Toranomon is located in one of Tokyo’s newest business districts and within walking distance of the Imperial Palace. The 205 rooms are designed by Danish studio Space Copenhagen, fusing Danish and Japanese minimalism. 30 suites suites feature their own private Japanese onsens whilst the two duplex suites spread across two floors. Opened in December 2023. The hotel website is here.
Having recently come back from a three night trip to Shanghai, and having read our review of Alila Jabal Akhdar in Oman, I’m intrigued by the Alila Shanghai. This will be a 188-room hotel in the Jing’an District of Shanghai. Alila is one of Hyatt’s smallest brands with just 18 hotels in seven countries currently operating; the hotel will be an “urban utopia” through its use of “natural materials, earth tones and charming city views”. Opens late 2024.
