GUADALAJARA, MEXICO—A Hyatt Hotels Corporation affiliate has entered into a joint venture and related agreements with an affiliate of Desarrolladora Mexicana de Inmuebles, S.A. de C.V. for the development and management of a Hyatt Regency hotel located here.

Hyatt Regency Andares Guadalajara marks the return of Hyatt to the city after a more than 17-year absence and will be the fifth Hyatt Regency-branded hotel in Mexico.

Hyatt Regency Andares Guadalajara will be located in the upscale area of Zapopan in the northwestern section of Guadalajara. The 220-room hotel is part of the second phase of development for the existing Andares Shopping Mall, a mixed-use complex that includes a high-end retail component anchored by Palacio de Hierro and Liverpool department stores, two office towers and luxury condominiums. Hyatt Regency Andares Guadalajara will be an integral part of the overall Andares development, which will also include additional upscale residential units and retail space as part of its second phase.

Hyatt Regency Andares Guadalajara will feature two restaurants, a lounge, approximately 29,000 sq. ft. of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, spa facilities, a fitness center and an indoor swimming pool. When complete, the Hyatt Regency Andares Guadalajara will provide close proximity to the region’s medical centers and the Centro Cultural Universitario.

Expected to open in late 2016, Hyatt Regency Andares Guadalajara will join four existing Hyatt Regency-branded hotels in Mexico: Hyatt Regency Mexico City, Hyatt Regency Merida, Hyatt Regency Villahermosa and Hyatt Regency Cancun. Additionally, previously announced Hyatt-branded hotels under development in Mexico include Hyatt Ziva Puerto Vallarta, Hyatt Ziva Cancun, Park Hyatt Los Cabos, Park Hyatt Riviera Maya, Hyatt Place La Paz, Hyatt Place Ciudad del Carmen, Hyatt Place Tijuana, Hyatt Playa in Playa del Carmen and Andaz Mayakoba.
