An affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation has entered into a franchise agreement with Singapore-based real estate investment trust M&L Hospitality to open a Hyatt Place hotel in London. The Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport will be the second Hyatt Place hotel and the fifth Hyatt-branded hotel in the United Kingdom. It will be managed by Cycas Hospitality.
"We are delighted to collaborate with M&L Hospitality to bring the second Hyatt Place hotel to the UK," Peter Norman, SVP, acquisitions and development – Europe, Africa and Middle East (EAME) and Southwest Asia for Hyatt, said in a statement. "The opening of this hotel will mark a significant milestone for Hyatt as the Hyatt Place brand continues to expand worldwide and offer more choices to our guests in key gateway cities."
Expected to open in early 2017 following a renovation of the existing building, Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport will be located right by Heathrow Airport.
"M&L Hospitality's collaboration with Hyatt continues to expand with the opening of Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport in the UK," said Neil Maxwell, CEO, M&L Hospitality. "After extensive upgrades to the hotel, including a full refurbishment of all guest rooms and public areas, we believe the Hyatt Place brand is the right fit for the hotel and Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport will exceed guest expectations while visiting or passing through London."
