Hyatt Place Houston Galleria Opens

HOUSTON—Atlanta-based Songy Highroads has opened Hyatt Place Houston Galleria, a 157-room, select-service hotel located across from the Galleria shopping center.

The 12-story hotel, situated at 5252 W. Alabama St., is managed by Aimbridge Hospitality. It contains three floors of common space and 10 guestroom floors with both suites and standard rooms. Onsite amenities include a swimming pool; 24-hour fitness center; meeting space; business center; 24/7 dining options; a market; and a lobby coffee shop and bar.

“The Uptown District already offers some of Houston’s best shopping, dining and entertainment options and, now, we get to add a premier select-service hotel to that mix,” said Todd Nocerini, COO of Songy Highroads, the hotel’s owner. “With our Hyatt Regency already experiencing great success, we feel we’re providing options for every business and leisure traveler wishing to visit the city.”

Songy Highroads began development of the property in August 2014 and also developed and owns the Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria, a 325-room, full-service hotel located adjacent to the Hyatt Place that opened in October 2015. The two hotels are part of a 7.6-acre mixed-use development that also contains two office towers along with high-end retail.
