Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the opening of the Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria in Houston, Texas last month. The hotel, managed by Aimbridge Hospitality, marks the ninth Hyatt-branded hotel to open in the Houston area.
Its location next to Texas’ largest shopping center, The Galleria, and choice of in-hotel amenities that put guests in the driver seat—from grab- and-go or sit-down dining options to meeting spaces for groups of all sizes—make Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria a one-stop experience, says Area Manager Adam Patenaude.
The hotel is part of the 7.6-acre, mixed-use Galleria Plaza development, which includes high-end retail and specialty stores, luxury apartments and several recently completed office towers. The development will also include Hyatt Place Houston Galleria, adjacent to Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria.
The Hyatt Place hotel is currently under construction and is expected to open in early 2016.
“We are delighted to welcome guests and the local community to our new hotel, located in the heart of one of Houston’s fastest growing neighborhoods and premiere shop- ping destinations,” says Patenaude. “Here, travelers can leave every de- tail to our dedicated hotel team, so they are free to break from routine if they choose or simply do things the way they want to do them.”
Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria features 325 rooms, including 20 suites designed to meet the needs of both business and leisure travelers. Guest room design and concepts are inspired by elements of the oil and gas industry with built-in furnishings that offer a more spacious and modern aesthetic.
Each room comes standard with a 55-inch flat-screen TV with plug- and-play capabilities from personal devices, free high-speed Internet access, mini-fridge, coffeemaker and a signature Hyatt Grand Bed.
In addition, the property offers locally sourced food and beverages all day. The Urban Star restaurant, bar and market features seasonal menus using local ingredients to create dishes that embody the flavors of Texas. On the third floor is a heated, outdoor swimming pool and sun deck. Adjacent to the pool is the StayFit gym with cardio equipment and weights.
