Athens lands Grand Hyatt

The first Grand Hyatt hotel in Greece is due to open next autumn in Athens with a 310-room property centrally located on Syngrou Avenue in the Koukaki district, close to golf courses, restaurants and within walking distance of Filopappos Hill.

Regional vice-president for development Takuya Aoyama said the Grand Hyatt Athens represented another significant milestone for the company in southeast Europe.

“This is an important growth market for us following recent Hyatt development announcements in Turkey and Bulgaria,” he added. “We have long sought to bring the Grand Hyatt brand’s celebratory luxury to Athens.”

Aoyama said the hotel design would reflect its Greek culture and feature first-class accommodation, a rooftop bar and restaurant, an outdoor swimming pool and a view of the Acropolis.

Nick Weber, founding partner of the Henderson Park hotel group, a partner with Hyatt in the development, added: “Working with Hyatt on this property is an endorsement of our ambitious strategy and a strong addition to Henderson Park’s portfolio of iconic European hotels.”

The hotel is undergoing a major renovation and will mark the second Hyatt hotel in Greece, joining the Hyatt Regency Thessaloniki.
