CHICAGO, IL – June 26, 2007 – Hyatt’s new upscale all-suite/extended-stay brand, Hyatt Summerfield Suite®, today announced its 2007 year-to-date development results with 10 new build hotels across the country. These new projects will join the 30 Hyatt Summerfield Suites hotels that are and will be operating by year-end 2007.
“We realize our guests have a broader meaning to the word home than their house, it also encompasses the community in which they live,” said Chris Ivy, senior vice president of development for Hyatt Summerfield Suites and Hyatt Place™. “This fact, combined with our research results, led us to approach the design of our guest suites and public spaces from a residential perspective, ensuring Hyatt Summerfield Suites reflects all the contemporary conveniences of our guests’ everyday life.”

In the living area, guests will find a 32-inch flat-panel, high definition television featuring high-definition programming in addition to an already impressive channel lineup. Guests can choose to watch television while stretched out on the Cozy Corner, a stylish, comfortable sectional sofa that can serve as both a work and relaxation area. An oversized desk and ergonomic chair, vibrant artwork and warm lighting complete the comfortable atmosphere. Bedrooms will also now offer the plush Hyatt Grand Bed™.
The public space will also feature a warm, contemporary look, designed to provide the comfort and sociability of a neighborhood.
