Construction of Hyatt Place Sharonville/Convention Center is expected to begin this fall. The six-story, contemporary metal and glass building will have 120 guestrooms with separate work space, free WiFi and hard-wired Internet access in each room, more than 2,000 square feet of meeting space, complimentary breakfast, an indoor saltwater swimming pool, a 24-hour gym and a “Coffee to Cocktails Bar” that will serve Starbucks coffees and teas, premium beer, wine and cocktails.
