Hyatt announces plans for two new UK hotels

Both hotels are expected to open in Q2 2022 following an ‘extensive’ refurbishment.

The Hyatt Hotels Corporation has acquired two properties in the UK following a management agreement with Stratford City Hotels Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of M&L Hospitality.

The group now has the 225-room Hyatt Regency London Stratford and the 127-room Hyatt House London Stratford under its portfolio, both of which are expected to open in Q2 2022 following an “extensive” refurbishment.

Hyatt Regency London Stratford will be catered to business and leisure travellers. It comprises 6,673 square feet of meeting space, along with a restaurant, bar and terrace. 

Meanwhile, Hyatt House London Stratford will offer apartment-style suites with fully equipped kitchens and workspaces, designed for extended stays.

Both hotels will be located within one of Europe’s “largest” urban shopping and entertainment complexes, Westfield Stratford City, and a short walk to Stratford Station. They are also within “easy access” to the O2 and ExCel London convention centre.

The announcement of Hyatt Regency London Stratford and Hyatt House London Stratford marks Hyatt’s continued growth in the UK market. 

The hotels will join M&L Hospitality’s existing Hyatt properties, including Hyatt Regency Manchester, Hyatt House Manchester, and Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport. 

Other Hyatt properties in the UK include Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill, Hyatt Regency Birmingham, Great Scotland Yard Hotel, Andaz London Liverpool Street, Hyatt Place West London Hayes, Hyatt Centric Cambridge and Hyatt Place London City East.

Felicity Black Roberts, Hyatt vice president of development for Europe, said: “The addition of these two hotels will be another exciting step in growing Hyatt’s brand presence in the United Kingdom and in creating a network of hotels across the key commercial and leisure markets in the country.

“We worked closely with M&L Hospitality to choose the right brands for the location and are pleased to be continuing our relationship with them following the successful openings of Hyatt Regency Manchester and Hyatt House Manchester in 2019.”

Neil Maxwell, chief executive officer of M&L Hospitality, added: “Our strategy focuses on identifying key gateway cities with strong economic growth. Stratford is experiencing a real boom and our plans to introduce these Hyatt House and Hyatt Regency hotels to London will capitalise on this.”
