Hyatt has announced plans for its second Regency property in London, to be located on the redeveloped Olympia London exhibition centre site on Hammersmith Road.
Hyatt Regency London Olympia will be part of a new development that will see Olympia, London’s historic convention center built in 1873, redeveloped and transformed into an integrated convention, entertainment, and cultural district in West London.
This redevelopment will include upgrades to the Olympia tube and rail station, additional bicycle routes and bus connectivity, allowing guests to access all of London’s main airports in under an hour by public transport.
“We are delighted to join forces with Olympus Property Holding Limited to be part of the exciting redevelopment of the Olympia exhibition center and bring the Hyatt Regency brand to life in this incredible new quarter of London,” said Felicity Black-Roberts, vice president of development Europe, Hyatt.
“Expanding Hyatt’s brand footprint with these plans to add a second Hyatt Regency hotel in London contributes to our ambitious growth strategy for the U.K. and our embodies our focus on thoughtful growth in places that matter most to our guests, World of Hyatt members and customers.”
Anchored by the Grand and National Halls’ iconic glass barrel-vaulted roofs, the new 14-acre site will include the creation of a boutique multi-screen arthouse cinema, 4,000-person music and performing arts venue, a 1,500 seat theatre, a 2.5-acre rooftop sky garden, as well as restaurants, shops, cafés, hotels, office, and co-working space.
Hyatt Regency London Olympia will feature a restaurant and a lobby lounge with a bar and market area. For corporate guests, the hotel will offer four meeting rooms and will be directly connected to the London Olympia convention center.
“Having Hyatt on board is a real positive for London and a clear indication of confidence in both the city and this iconic landmark as a destination for culture and creativity,” said Chairman of Olympia Ltd John Hitchcox.
“The Olympia redevelopment project will give a real boost to the local economy, bringing in an extra £9m per year in consumer spending to Hammersmith & Fulham, so we are very pleased to be taking another big step towards the realisation of a new vision for this area.”
