Hyatt Place Expands in Honduras


By the Caribbean Journal staff

Another Hyatt Place has opened its doors in the Caribbean Basin.

The new Hyatt Place San Pedro Sula is the second Hyatt Place in Honduras, and the second Hyatt-branded hotel in the country.

The new property is owned by Latam Hotel Corporation, which has six hotels in the region, and is operated by Colombia-based GHL, a veteran operator in the Caribbean.

“As the Hyatt Place brand continues to grow in Latin America and the Caribbean, we are excited to add to the momentum by welcoming the second Hyatt Place hotel to Honduras,” said Luciano Julio, regional vice president of operations, Hyatt Place and Hyatt House. “Hyatt Place San Pedro Sula offers stylish social spaces and spacious guestrooms with separate work and sleep areas, which our multitasking guests will enjoy to accomplish what they need to do while visiting Honduras’ most important industrial city.”

The property has a total of 138 rooms, along with a “Gallery Kitchen Breakfast” restaurant, a 24-7 “Menu and Market” eatery, a coffee and cocktail bar, an outdoor pool and a 24-hour gym, among other amenities.

“We are very proud of the new Hyatt Place in San Pedro Sula,” stated Fernando Paiz, president of Latam Hotel Corp. “Our hotel is designed to cater to the business traveler’s needs with a modern design that celebrates the dynamism of this important manufacturing hub, strategically located in the Agora Mall, a boutique shopping center in the heart of the city.”    

Hyatt Place has also recently expanded with three locations in Puerto Rico, while another Hyatt Place is planned in Aruba.
