Hyatt Place Bayamón and El Tropical Casino, expected to open in the first quarter of 2014, will be a seven story building offering 156 guestrooms with an adjoining casino, free-standing restaurant and bar, and a multi-level parking garage with space for 250 vehicles. The hotel will be located next to the 42-acre Luis A. Ferré Science Park and will also be close to the city’s largest shopping mall. Bayamón is the island’s second most populous city and is located 15 miles southwest of San Juan.

“We are excited to introduce the Hyatt Place brand to Puerto Rico,” said Chris Ivy, senior vice president, real estate and development – North America and Caribbean, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts. “A Hyatt Place presence in the Caribbean is integral to the brand’s expansion.” Currently, there are more than 160 Hyatt Place hotels in operation in the United States, with more than 35 under development throughout the U.S., Europe, the Caribbean, China, Latin America, Southwest Asia, and the Middle East.

Facilities and amenities of Hyatt Place Bayamón and El Tropical Casino will include the Gallery lobby/lounge with 24-hour Guest Kitchen, dining areas offering indoor seating for 80 guests and outdoor seating for 12 guests on the veranda. Other amenities will include 2,075 square feet of flexible meeting space, a fitness center, outdoor swimming pool, and free Wi-Fi everywhere in the hotel.

“We are excited to work with Hyatt on this project and to bring Hyatt’s world-class hospitality and the innovative Hyatt Place brand to Puerto Rico,” said Federico Stubbe, Jr., of Island Hospitality Partners, LLC.
