A Hyatt affiliate has signed a management agreement with Blackfriars Hotels for Hyatt Regency London Blackfriars in the UK.

The property is currently under renovation and is slated to open in July 2022.

Hyatt Regency London Blackfriars will feature an all-day New York style bistro, and a specialty Chinese restaurant, a cocktail bar, with a large outdoor space.

Other guest amenities will include meeting spaces and fitness centre.

The property is strategically located in close proximity of Blackfriars underground station and is within walking distance from various cultural hotspots including the South Bank area, St Paul’s Cathedral and Shakespeare’s Globe theatre.

Blackfriars Hotels Limited owner Galadari said: “We are delighted to be working with Hyatt to open Hyatt Regency London Blackfriars, a cutting-edge hotel for leisure and business travellers.

“We were instantly attracted to the legacy, premium quality, and reputation offered by the Hyatt Regency brand and its ambition to create a seamless hotel and dining experience for guests. With its smart design features, innovative food and beverage concepts, and a desirable location, Hyatt Regency London Blackfriars is set to become a landmark for generations to come.”

The new property marks Hyatt’s 13th affiliated hotel in the UK and the ninth in London. It will join the likes of Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill, Andaz London Liverpool Street, Hyatt Place London City East, Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport, among others.

The move is part of the company’s brand growth strategy for the UK.
