What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


Edinburgh Marina Director and Developer Kevin Fawcett said the developers had received “widespread interest” from global hoteliers for opportunities along the £500-million waterside complex. 

“The Edinburgh Marina is the perfect springboard for us to launch our brand in Scotland, opening a new era for the company and creating a great new tourism opportunity for Edinburgh,” said Guido Fredrich, Hyatt’s regional VP of development for Europe, in a statement.

Hugh Taylor of Michels & Taylor, the hotel management company that advised the developer, said the opening would be “great news” for Edinburgh and a “huge boost” to the city’s tourism industry. “Hyatt is a highly regarded international hotelier and is a perfect fit for this luxury waterfront development.”
