Monday April 28th, 2014 - 7:38AM

MEXICO CITY—Hyatt Hotels Corporation plans to introduce its Hyatt House extended-stay brand in Mexico with the signing of a franchise agreement between a Hyatt affiliate and Fideicomiso de Actividad Empresarial for Hyatt House Santa Fe in Mexico City. 

The hotel is expected to open in 2016, and it will be managed by Grupo Presidente, one of Mexico’s leading hotel operators.

Hyatt House Santa Fe will be located in Mexico City’s Santa Fe neighborhood, a business and commercial district in the western part of the city. The hotel will also be the first extended stay hotel in the Santa Fe area backed by an international hotel brand, according to Hyatt.

Hyatt House Santa Fe will offer 119 residentially inspired upscale den guestrooms, studio and one-bedroom kitchen suites, a Commons area, including an H BAR serving the Sip+Savor menu and full bar, and 2,000 sq. ft. of meeting space, as well as free WiFi and access to public computers, Workout Room and swimming pool.

Hyatt House Santa Fe will be a key component of a mixed-use complex situated along Avenida Prolongacion Vasco de Quiroga. The complex will also include approximately 64,500 sq. ft. of office and retail space, Mexico City’s first upscale assisted living residences and an elevated pathway connecting the complex to the American British Cowdray Medical Center (ABC Hospital), which is one of the country’s most recognized and leading health care facilities.

The introduction of the Hyatt House brand signals Hyatt’s plans for steady growth in Mexico, according to the hotel brand. In addition to Hyatt House Santa Fe, Hyatt currently has seven additional executed management and franchise agreements, including Hyatt Regency Andares Guadalajara, 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.

Myles McGourty, SVP of Latin America & Caribbean for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts stated, “We believe it is an exciting time for Hyatt in Mexico. As Hyatt seeks to elevate the profile of its brands in Mexico, the recent growth announcements and openings underscore our commitment to Mexico.”
