    Greetings Milepoint Members!

    Expected to open in 2017, Hyatt Place Zurich Airport will offer 300 guestrooms, and amenities including a market with made-to-order meals and snacks around the clock; a kitchen offering breakfast, lunch and dinner; a café and bar offering coffee, beer, liquor and wine; a four-station e-room; and well-equipped fitness center with cardio equipment and free weights and benches. The hotel will have access to the meeting and conference facilities at Hyatt Regency Zurich Airport.

    Will the Hyatt Regency and the Hyatt Place open at the same time scheduled for 2017?

    And in other news, when will the Hyatt Place Amsterdam Schiphol open?

    Thank you so much!:)

    Can you share the logic in opening two new properties in a city that already has a Hyatt property location?

    With the large holes in Hyatt's coverage in Europe, I would have thought that opening a city-central property in one of the many cities that currently don't have a Hyatt property would be better for Hyatt in expanding the brand as well as better for us loyal Hyatt customers that want to stay at a Hyatt property.

    I'm not Hyatt, but these are very different brands and the lovely Park Hyatt in Zurich is usually about 700 Euro and up. I'll take any new Hyatt property in Europe.

    fair enough, but TWO lower scale brands (at the airport no less), how about splitting the difference with another city where there is a PH only or a city where Hyatt isn't located? (again, just doesn't seem well planned out)

    It might be as simple as the franchisee/owner in Zurich had two hotels he wanted to make Hyatts?

    5 years to build/open a Hyatt Place? Whoa! :eek: If I remember correctly, it only took them a few months to build a HP close to my old house in Milford, CT :D

    It's possible they have written a contract with an existing property that has a contract with another chain till 2016?

    Exactly, Hyatt (like most other hotel companies) do not actually own (develop) most of the properties that are flying their flag. As such, they are at the mercy of development opportunities (and to a lesser extent reflagging of properties) of the locale. Europe is notoriously difficult for development opportunities (like someone said somewhere - prime locations have been gone for 400+ years). That's why we are seeing the new properties primarily in China and the Middle East (where a lot of development is going on). Even in the US, we don't see much development in downtown locations - but more in suburban locations (with properties like Hyatt Place and Hyatt house).

    I am a bit skeptical of long term announcements like these though - since 5 years is a really long time for something to happen - financial change of fortune (eg the GH Las Vegas which basically went bankrupt and the lender changed flags and renamed it the Cosmopolitan) and other unexplained changes (eg the announcement several years ago of the PH Phuket and PH Koh Samui in Thailand). This applies to all hotel companies and not just Hyatt.

    No, eight weeks to build it. Four years minus eight weeks to find a Swiss general contractor that will lower their standards to the HP level. :)

    Lower their standards? Good one! Never been to Swiss ski resorts? Make sure not to confuse a 4* Zurich hotel with a 4* ski hotel in what shall we say... Wengen or Grindelwald. I wish there was only one hotel that offers Hyatt Place quality. Most of the 4* are extremely dated in Switzerland.

    Would be interested to see how the service at this particular HP would be, compared to most HPs in the states.
