McKibbon Hospitality to manage Austin hotel

McKibbon Hospitality adds the Hyatt House Austin Downtown to its management portfolio. The 190-room urban, extended-stay property is located in Austin’s music district. The contemporary retreat has 136 apartment-style suites with fully equipped kitchens including a stovetop, fridge and freezer, microwave, dishwasher, and separate dining and living spaces.

The new management contract establishes McKibbon’s presence in Texas with its fifth Hyatt House, a Hyatt brand focused on extended-stay accommodations. Notable amenities include complimentary breakfast served daily, valet parking service, a well-equipped 24-hour fitness center, and flexible workspace. The pool deck has privacy while visitors take in the sun and includes fire pits. The H Bar, the in-house bar and bistro, serves a traditional American fare alongside craft cocktails and offers a first-floor H Market.

“We couldn’t be more excited to support the Hyatt House Austin Downtown and the team of associates that bring the hotel to life,” McKibbon Hospitality President Bruce Baerwalde said in a statement. “We look forward to welcoming guests with the highest level of service and building a strong relationship with Austin’s vibrant community.”

The addition of Hyatt House Austin Downtown grows McKibbon’s overall management portfolio to 101 hotels with nearly 12,000 guestrooms throughout the United States.
