Hyatt Place has opened the Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach hotel in Hawaii, US, by unveiling Pali Tower, the first of two towers being constructed at the property.
The tower features 190 guestrooms, each offering Wi-Fi access, a 42in high-definition television and an 8ft sectional sofa sleeper.
The hotel has a pool deck, an open-air lobby overlooking the ocean and a business centre.
Food and beverage outlets include a Bakery Café offering speciality coffees, premium beers, wines and cocktails, and a Grab ‘n Go vendor offering sandwiches, tropical fruit and Japanese cuisine.
According to Hyatt, the hotel’s pool deck features a fire pit, Tiki torches and seating for up to 200 guests.
Hyatt global head of franchise and select brands Gary Dollens said that opening of the Pali Tower represents a new beginning for Hyatt Place in Hawaii.
"We look forward to the completion of the second tower in 2012, and hope to build on the brand’s momentum and continue the development of Hyatt Place around the world, especially in exciting new destinations," Dollens said.
The second tower, called Diamond Tower, will open in 2012, with 236 guestrooms.
The property offers a StayFit@Hyatt fitness centre with cardio equipment and gym accessories; the fifth floor was designed with rooms intended for meetings, receptions and conferences.
