Hyatt Place Oklahoma City/Bricktown Celebrates Official Opening
134-room Hyatt Place hotel opens in the heart of Oklahoma City’s Bricktown entertainment district

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (March 29, 2018) Hyatt Place Oklahoma City/Bricktown, the first Hyatt Place hotel in downtown Oklahoma City, is officially open. The new hotel features the Hyatt Place brand’s intuitive design, casual atmosphere and practical amenities, such as free Wi-Fi and 24-hour food offerings. This hotel is constructed, owned, and operated by NewcrestImage.

“As Oklahoma City continues to thrive economically and grow as a tourist destination, we are excited to add to the momentum by welcoming the first Hyatt Place hotel to the area” said General Manager Brian Werkman. “With our smartly designed social spaces and guestrooms with separate work and sleep areas, our multitasking guests can easily accomplish what they need to do while on the road. Plus, our free hot breakfast is just the thing our guests need to take on the day. We are local in every sense as we embrace our neighborhood, serve draft beer from Oklahoma City breweries and feature locally created dessert options.”   

Hyatt Place Oklahoma City/Bricktown is located within walking distance of more than 40 restaurants, bars and attractions. Also nearby is the Chesapeake Energy Arena, home of the Oklahoma City Thunder. Take a short walk to the nearby Boathouse District to plunge down a manmade whitewater rafting course or zip-line across the Oklahoma River. The hotel is less than a mile away from the Oklahoma City Museum of Art and Oklahoma City Memorial and Museum. When the Oklahoma City Streetcar takes off in late 2018, Hyatt Place Oklahoma City/Bricktown will be just one block from the closest stop with access to all of Downtown Oklahoma City.

“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with NewcrestImage with the opening of Hyatt Place Oklahoma City/Bricktown. As one of our most prolific owners, Mehul, Chirag and their colleagues at NewcrestImage are essential to fostering our momentum and powering our growth across the U.S.,” said Julienne Smith, senior vice president of development and owner relations, Hyatt Place and Hyatt House. “This hotel and its location fit tremendously well within the brand’s portfolio, and we’re confident it will resonate with our loyal World of Hyatt members who expect a seamless experience throughout their hotel stay. We are excited to support NewcrestImage in bringing this hotel to its fullest potential in the Oklahoma City marketplace.”
