LOS ANGELES–CaRE Development/5959 LLC has entered into a franchise agreement for a dual-branded Hyatt Place and Hyatt House near Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The Hyatt Place LAX and Hyatt House LAX—the first of its kind in Los Angeles—is expected to open in 2020, bringing more upscale lodging options to the LAX market.
The two brands are rooted in consumer research indicating that guests seek stylish, comfortable, and seamless experiences that accommodate their lifestyles and familiar routines. To embody this, the two brands offer casual hospitality and purposeful service in a high-tech and contemporary environment.
“We are excited to introduce the first combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels to the LA area,” says Steve Shpilsky, CEO of CaRE Development. “Guests will be able to appreciate the contemporary design and spacious layout of the guestrooms. From the separate spaces to sleep and work, including the Cozy Corner at Hyatt Place hotels, to the apartment-style suites with real kitchens at Hyatt House hotels, our guests will be able to choose the space that fits their needs.”
The development will embrace L.A.’s historical mid-century architecture and design with a contemporary twist. The Hyatt Place LAX will offer 279 guestrooms with distinct sleeping and living areas and amenities such as free WiFi and 24-hour food options. The Hyatt House LAX will have 129 apartment-style suites with fully equipped kitchens. Together, the two hotels will offer shared services and amenities that meet the needs of transient and extended-stay guests: a rooftop pool and a restaurant and bar with views of LAX runways, downtown Los Angeles, the Hollywood Sign, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Manhattan Beach.
Located steps from LAX at 5959 West Century Blvd. and less than two miles away from the new City of Champions Stadium, Hyatt Place LAX and Hyatt House LAX will serve the annual 85 million business and leisure travelers that pass through the second busiest airport in the United States. LAX is undergoing a $14 billion renovation, which will include a new automated people mover to the airport, which will be steps from Hyatt Place LAX and Hyatt House LAX.
“Hyatt Place LAX and Hyatt House LAX are great examples of our continued focus on growing premium hotels that will attract business and leisure travelers alike,” says Julienne Smith, senior vice president of development and owner relations, Hyatt Place and Hyatt House. “We’re thrilled to team up with Steve and the entire CaRE Development team on this dual-branded hotel–together, our collaboration speaks volumes about the strength of L.A.’s economy and the appeal and convenience of two hotels that will meet the needs of guests visiting L.A. or passing through LAX.”
“LAX and L.A. continue to exhibit strong hospitality demand fundamentals. Between the $14 billion LAX renovation, new public transportation, Silicon Beach, large research universities, the 2028 Summer Olympic Games, a new NFL stadium that will be home to the L.A. Rams and L.A. Chargers, and some of the best weather in the world, we can’t wait to open our doors for all to enjoy,” Shpilsky says.
