The 350-bedroom hotel, purchased by the Singapore-based property M&L Hospitality from Arora last year, will be fully refurbished before re-opening as Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport in early 2017.
The re-brand will mark Hyatt's fifth hotel in the UK and its second in London under the Hyatt Place brand.
“We are delighted to collaborate with M&L Hospitality to bring the second Hyatt Place hotel to the UK,” said Peter Norman, senior vice president, acquisitions and development – Europe, Africa and Middle East (EAME) and Southwest Asia for Hyatt.
“The opening of this hotel will mark a significant milestone for Hyatt as the Hyatt Place brand continues to expand worldwide and offer more choices to our guests in key gateway cities.”
The new-look hotel will feature a 24/7 Gallery Market, offering grab-and-go items, a Coffee to Cocktails Bar, seven meeting and function rooms and a 24-hour StayFit Gym. It will also feature Hyatt Place's Gallery Hosts, offering round-the-clock service to guests and free Wi-Fi throughout.
Neil Maxwell, chief executive officer, M&L Hospitality, said Hyatt Place was the best brand for the airport hotel.
“After extensive upgrades to the hotel, including a full refurbishment of all guest rooms and public areas, we believe the Hyatt Place brand is the right fit for the hotel and Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport will exceed guest expectations while visiting or passing through London," he said.
Cycas Hospitality will continue to manage the hotel for M&L Hospitality under the new Hyatt Place franchise.
“This is a stylish and creative brand for Heathrow Airport and we know that guests will enjoy our plans for new, intuitive levels of service which will mark this hotel apart from its competitors on the strip,” said John Wagner, director, Cycas Hospitality.
