Dual-Branded Hyatt Place and Hyatt House Hotels to Bring Upscale Lodging to Los Angeles International Airport
401-room combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels expected to open in 2020

LOS ANGELES (May 8, 2018) – CaRE Development / 5959 LLC today announce that it has entered into a franchise agreement with a Hyatt affiliate for a dual-branded Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel in Los Angeles, directly adjacent to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). The development of Hyatt Place LAX and Hyatt House LAX, the first dual-branded Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels in LA, are expected to open in 2020 and further reinforce the growing demand for upscale lodging in the expanding LAX market.

The Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands are rooted in extensive consumer research indicating that guests seek stylish, comfortable, seamless experiences that accommodate their lifestyles and familiar routines. To embody this, the two brands offer casual hospitality and purposeful service in a smartly designed, high-tech and contemporary environment.

“We are excited to introduce the first combined Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels to the LA area,” said Chief Executive Officer Steve Shpilsky, 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.”

Hyatt Place LAX and House Hotel LAX will embrace LA’s historical mid-century architecture and design with a contemporary twist. The 272-room Hyatt Place LAX will bring the brand’s intuitive design, casual atmosphere, spacious guestrooms with distinct sleeping and living areas, and practical amenities, such as free Wi-Fi and 24-hour food offerings, to guests looking for a relaxing and uncomplicated place to pause before beginning the next leg of their journey. The 129-room Hyatt House LAX will offer apartment-style suites with fully equipped kitchens, providing guests with the spaces and places that make them feel more at home. Together, the two hotels will offer an array of shared services and amenities that meet the needs of transient and extended-stay guests, which will be highlighted by a rooftop pool, restaurant and bar with unprecedented views of LAX runways, downtown Los Angeles, the Hollywood Sign, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica, and Manhattan Beach.

Located steps away 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,” said 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 LA’s economy and the appeal and convenience of two hotels that will meet the needs of guests visiting LA or passing through LAX.”

“LAX and LA 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 LA Rams and LA Chargers, and some of the best weather in the world, we can’t wait to open our doors for all to enjoy,” continued Shpilsky.
