Hyatt has entered into a management agreement with Olympus Property Holding Limited to open a brand-new Hyatt Regency property in London.
The 196-room hotel is slated to open in 2024 and will mark the eighth Hyatt-branded property and the second Hyatt Regency hotel in London.
Hyatt Regency London Olympia will add to the current portfolio of Hyatt Regency hotels in the UK, joining Hyatt Regency Birmingham, Hyatt Regency Manchester and Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill.
“We are delighted to join forces with Olympus Property Holding Limited to be part of the exciting redevelopment of the Olympia exhibition center and bring the Hyatt Regency brand to life in this incredible new quarter of London,” vice president of development – Europe, Hyatt, Felicity Black-Roberts enthused. “Expanding Hyatt’s brand footprint with these plans to add a second Hyatt Regency hotel in London contributes to our ambitious growth strategy for the UK and embodies our focus on thoughtful growth in places that matter most to our guests, World of Hyatt members and customers. With its reputation as a place for people to connect, the Hyatt Regency brand will fit perfectly in this new development.”
Hyatt Regency London Olympia will be home to a restaurant and a lobby lounge with bar and market area, as well as four meeting rooms.
The property will form part of a new development that will see Olympia, London’s historic convention center built in 1873, redeveloped and transformed into an integrated convention, entertainment, and cultural district in West London. This redevelopment will include upgrades to the Olympia tube and rail station, additional bicycle routes and bus connectivity, allowing guests to access London’s Heathrow, Gatwick and City airports in under an hour by public transport.
