NewcrestImage expanded its portfolio to 28 owned and operated properties with the opening of a five-floor, 134-room Hyatt Place in the Bricktown historic district just east of Oklahoma City’s downtown business center.

“Together with our partners at Hyatt Hotels, we have created a hotel that combines uptown style with down-home comfort,” Mehul Patel, chairman and CEO of NewcrestImage, said in a statement. “It is a distinctive destination that respects the neighborhood’s past as a warehouse district, while emphasizing the area’s re-purposed and revitalized modern spirit.”

The Hyatt Place includes a lobby with customized, locally-themed design and furnishings. Amenities include multiple food options, notably freshly-prepared meals 24 hours a day and a “coffee to cocktails” bar; a 24-hour gym with cardio equipment, LCD touchscreens and free earbuds; and 1,800 square feet of meeting space.
