UAE’s 10th Hyatt property opens
Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl district adds to the UAE’s growing mid-market segment
The opening of Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District marks the third property under Hyatt’s modern essentials brand portfolio and the 10th Hyatt property in UAE, will serve the country’s mid-market hotel segment, according to a statement.
The hotel joins Hyatt Place Dubai/Al Rigga and Hyatt Place Dubai/Baniyas Square in increasing “affordable hospitality offerings in the city.”
The statement said that Hyatt is diversifying into the mid-tier market in a move to attract the cost-conscious and independent travellers, which include international tourists.
By the end of 2019, the room inventory in Dubai is expected to reach 132,000, according to a study conducted by Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism). The rapid rise is primarily fuelled by the upcoming World Expo 2020, which is expected to attract more than 20 million tourists.
Fathi Khogaly, cluster general manager, said: “The opening of Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District reflects our support to the UAE government’s efforts to expand the mid-scale segment in the country and our strong and long-term commitment to the UAE’s hospitality sector, where we are expanding our footprint very fast.
“A modern hotel concept that will cater to the new generation of business and leisure travellers looking for experience, authenticity and value for money, Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District perfectly fits the requirement.”
Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District features 202 guestrooms, including 10 suites and 105 apartments with separate spaces to sleep, work and play, as well as a Cozy Corner sofa-sleeper.
Facilities within the hotel include the Gallery Kitchen Breakfast, Gallery Café, 24/7 Gallery Market, Coffee to Beverages Bar, meeting rooms, gym and a temperature-controlled swimming pool at the rooftop.
