CHICAGO—The Unbound Collection by Hyatt added two new hotels in 2017—Holston House in Nashville, TN, and Spirit Ridge resort in Osoyoos, British Columbia—and will add two new hotels this spring, the newly built Eliza Jane hotel in New Orleans and The Bellevue Hotel in Philadelphia. These four new hotels will nearly double the brand’s current portfolio.
Sandra Cordova Micek, SVP, global brands for Hyatt, said, “Whether it’s a captivating past, an exclusive destination or world-class architecture and design, each of the new properties joining The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand will maintain their distinct character and the freedom to be unique, giving the modern traveler even more ways to enjoy one-of-a-kind choices when they travel.”
The Bellevue Hotel, which is slated to rebrand from Hyatt at The Bellevue to The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in March 2018, has a 113-year history. Featuring 172 guestrooms, 30,000 sq. ft. of meeting and event space, and XIX (NINETEEN) fine-dining American restaurant, the hotel underwent a multimillion-dollar renovation in 2016. Its new design, led by Marguerite Rodgers Interior Design, is a modern interpretation of classic Philadelphia that explores the rich political, artistic, theatrical and musical history of the city. Drawing on inspiration from the hotel’s location on the celebrated Avenue of the Arts, all guestrooms feature a contemporary take on 18th-century furnishings, as well as art from local Philadelphia painters and photographers.
The Eliza Jane hotel, expected to open in Spring 2018 in the heart of downtown New Orleans, will evoke a balance of timelessness with modern style and luxury, according to the brand. To be located at 315 Magazine St., on the edge of the Central Business District, the 196-room hotel will offer 50 suites, a fitness center, street-level restaurant, lobby lounge and 1,800 sq. ft. of flexible meeting and event space on the lobby level.
The brand is also developing a new hotel in Hollywood, CA, slated to open in 2019. A Hyatt affiliate has entered into a franchise agreement with PNK Group, a subsidiary of S3D Partner, to build a 64-room boutique lifestyle hotel, which will be located at 1525 N. Cahuenga Blvd. Located near the Hollywood Palladium theater, famed Sunset Blvd. and star-lined Hollywood Walk of Fame, the new hotel will reflect the avant-garde attitude of Hollywood, according to the company. The hotel will be managed by Interstate Hotels & Resorts.
In addition to its 39 guestrooms and 24 suites, The Unbound Collection by Hyatt hotel will feature a variety of food and beverage experiences, including a ground-level restaurant, street-front lounge, and rooftop pool deck and lounge. The hotel will cater to both leisure and business travelers seeking an upscale, lively hotel experience in the heart of Hollywood.
