Tblisi, Georgia, to get Hyatt Regency Hotel in 2017

A Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with Rustaveli Property for a Hyatt Regency hotel in Tbilisi, Georgia.

According to Breaking Travel News, the property is expected to open in 2017. Rustaveli Property is a special purpose company established for the development of the Hotel, and is part of the Loyal Capital Group. Rustaveli has tapped UK-based Reardon Smith Architects as the project architect, AECOM as the project manager, and has selected Lynne Hunt London as the interior designer for the Hotel.

“This project is particularly exciting as it is a conversion of the former ministry of justice building, a national architectural heritage monument, into a Hyatt Regency hotel in downtown Tbilisi,” Peter Norman, senior vice president of development for Hyatt – Europe, Africa and Middle East, said in a statement.

Situated on one of the most prominent streets in the capital, Rustaveli Avenue, the Hyatt Regency Tbilisi will have 170 guestrooms and suites and more than 8,100 square feet of meeting space, including a ballroom, as well as four food and beverage outlets and a spa and fitness center.
