CHICAGO—Hyatt Hotels Corporation, Aedes Real Estate and UBM Realitätentwicklung AG announced their affiliates have entered into an agreement for a Hyatt Regency hotel in Amsterdam, which is expected to open in 2015. Hyatt Regency Amsterdam will be the first Hyatt Regency hotel and the third Hyatt-branded hotel to open in the city, joining the recently opened Andaz Amsterdam and the late-2013 opening of Hyatt Place Amsterdam Schiphol Airport.
The hotel will offer 211 guestrooms, including 15 suites and will feature meeting and ballroom space, a restaurant, a bar and lounge, a fitness center, and a two-treatment-room spa.
“The Hyatt Regency brand is a great fit for Amsterdam,” said Peter Norman, senior vice president, real estate and development for Hyatt Hotels and Resorts. “It is one of Europe’s most important commercial centers and the continent’s sixth largest metropolitan area, drawing visitors for both business and leisure. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to again collaborate with Aedes Real Estate on a second project in Amsterdam, and very much look forward to establishing a long lasting relationship with UBM.”
UBM’s Director Ton Fransoo said, “This is a very exciting project for the Netherlands as it will be the first Hyatt Regency in our country. The hotel will be a particularly important asset to the Eastern part of the city center, which is currently short of hotel capacity. We are looking forward to working with Hyatt and Aedes Real Estate to build a splendid hotel in a beautiful location.”
Aedes Real Estate and Austrian UBM are jointly responsible for the development and realization of Hyatt Regency Amsterdam.
