Dear MilePoint members, We are very excited to announce plans for Hyatt Place Bayamon and El Tropical Casino, marking the introduction of the Hyatt Place brand in Puerto Rico. The hotel is expected to open in the first quarter of 2014, and will be a seven story building offering 156 guestrooms with an adjoining casino, free standing restaurant, and bar. The hotel will be located next to the 42 acre Luis A. Ferre Science Park and close to the city’s largest shopping mall. We currently have more than 160 Hyatt Place hotels in operations in the United States, with more than 35 under development throughout Europe, the Caribbean, China, Latin America, Southwest Asia, and the Middle East. Happy and Safe Travels! -Nick B.
