Hyatt Hotels Corporation and PRISA Group and McConnell Valdés Consulting today announced the opening of Hyatt House San Juan, debuting as Puerto Rico’s first extended stay hotel as well as the brand’s first Hyatt House hotel outside of the continental United States.
The Governor of Puerto Rico, the Hon. Alejandro Garcia Padilla, attended the hotel’s ribbon-cutting ceremony.
Situated in the beautiful Miramar neighborhood, Hyatt House San Juan offers the conveniences of hotel living with the comforts of home. The 126-room hotel offers residentially inspired studio and one-bedroom suites, most with gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean and San Juan Bay. The hotel’s suites also feature contemporary full kitchens, living space with HDTVs and bedrooms with a plush bed.
Hyatt House San Juan is conveniently located minutes away from the Puerto Rico Convention Center, Financial District in Hato Rey, Isla Grande Airport, and the Port of San Juan. The hotel is also just minutes from famous attractions, beautiful beaches, amazing golf courses, and landmarks, including Old San Juan, the Condado district, San Juan Central Park, and Plaza Las Américas.
“This has been a remarkable year in Puerto Rico with Hyatt, following the opening of Hyatt Place San Juan/Bayamon and Hyatt Place Manatí in December and March. The three properties represent over $115 million in development costs for us,” said Federico Stubbe, Jr., president of PRISA Group, the hotels’ developer and owner. “Hyatt House San Juan is yet another example of our continued focus on developing and investing in Puerto Rico to attract business, convention and leisure travelers alike. We are delighted with this new extended stay offering for travelers visiting San Juan, as the hotel and our associates will make them feel like residents while visiting our beautiful Island.”
“Our relationship with PRISA Group has been fruitful with two Hyatt Place openings already in Puerto Rico, and we are thrilled by the opening our first Hyatt House hotel outside of the continental United States in Puerto Rico and the first Hyatt House built entirely according to the brand’s new prototype design,” said Chris Walker, vice president of brands, Hyatt Place and Hyatt House. “The opening of Hyatt House San Juan is also significant in that it begins the brand’s global expansion with future openings expected in Mexico, Panama, China, India, and Saudi Arabia.”
“Hyatt House is everything the name represents – a welcoming and warm environment that encourages guests to live like residents,” said General Manager Frankie Mariani. “We want each and every guest who comes through our doors to feel that they can let their real-life routines roll on, even when they’re on the road.”
