TILLMAN’S CORNER, ALA. AND MARYSVILLE, CALIF. — Hyatt Hotels Corp. (NYSE: H) has announced the first two locations for its upper-midscale extended-stay banner, Hyatt Studios. The company has letters of interest for over 100 Hyatt Studios developments across the U.S.
Each Hyatt Studios location will be sized to fit approximately 122 rooms, and will offer grab-and-go breakfast and a 24-hour market with snacks and ready-made meals that can be prepared in each guest room’s kitchen.
The Chicago-based company has entered into a franchise agreement with 3H Group Inc. to develop the first Hyatt Studios hotel in Tillman’s Corner, roughly 10 miles southeast of Mobile. The property is set to open in late 2024.
Presidio Hotel Development has entered into a franchise agreement with Hyatt for the second location, a 113-room hotel in downtown Marysville, approximately 45 miles north of Sacramento. The property is expected to open in 2025 and will feature dedicated meeting spaces.
Extended-stay hotels have grown in demand over the past several years, in part due to the asset’s popularity during the COVID-19 pandemic. Bask Development recently announced plans to develop eight Extended Stay America-branded hotels in Florida, and the development of 15 new hotels under the same banner was announced for the Western U.S. late last year.
Hyatt has a portfolio of over 1,250 properties across 76 countries in six continents. The company’s stock price closed at $114.79 on Wednesday, Aug. 16, up from $95 one year ago.
