Hyatt aims to open two new Manhattan hotels
After 29 years of getting by with just one Manhattan hotel—the 1,311 room Grand Hyatt next to Grand Central Terminal—Hyatt Hotel & Resorts will open two properties here in the next year. The Chicago-based company is opening a property on 41nd St. and Fifth Ave. across from Bryant Park early next year; and it is close to completing a second hotel at the corner of Wall St. and Water St. downtown. That one is slated to open in September. Both will bear the new Hyatt brand, Andaz, which the company bills as a boutique lifestyle property.
