The opening of Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District,the third property under Hyatt’s modern essentials brand portfolio and the 10thHyatt property in the United Arab Emirates, will serve the growing hospitality sector, notably the mid-market hotel segment.
The Hyatt Place brand is rooted in the provision of stylish, comfortable and seamless experiences for guests, accommodating guests’ needs through purposeful service and an overall uncomplicated stay. The hotel joins Hyatt Place Dubai/Al Rigga and Hyatt Place Dubai/Baniyas Square in increasing the number of contemporary yet affordable hospitality offerings in the city.
Dubai is known for its luxurious and high-priced hotels and Hyatt is diversifying into the mid-tier market in a move to attract the cost-conscious and independent travellers, which include tourists from all across the world. By the end of 2019, the room inventory in Dubai is expected to reach 132,000, according to a study conducted by Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (Dubai Tourism). The rapid rise is primarily fuelled by the upcoming World Expo 2020, which is expected to attract over 20 million tourists.
“The opening of Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District reflects our support to the UAE government’s efforts to expand the mid-scale segment in the country and our strong and long-term commitment to the UAE’s hospitality sector, where we are expanding our footprint very fast. A modern hotel concept that will cater to the new generation of business and leisure travelers looking for experience, authenticity and value for money, Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District perfectly fits the requirement,” says Fathi Khogaly, Cluster General Manager.
Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District features 202 stylish guestrooms, including 10 suites, and 105 apartments with separate spaces to sleep, work, and play, as well as a Cozy Corner sofa-sleeper. Facilities within the hotel include the Gallery Kitchen Breakfast; Gallery Café; 24/7 Gallery Market; Coffee to Beverages Bar; meeting rooms, gym and a temperature-controlled swimming pool at the rooftop.
Located in the heart of Deira in Old Dubai, Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District allows guests to discover key landmarks such as the heritage and diving village, the Creek, the famed spice and gold souks as well as numerous retail, dining and entertainment outlets. With its close proximity to key metro, dhow cruise, and taxi stations, travellers gain easy access to the city's popular attractions.
"The new age travelers tend to spend on experiences rather than on things, so they would prefer to visit museums, theme parks, cultural places and engage in adventurous activities. They also search for budget-friendly accommodations that will offer a comfortable stay after an exhilarating day. Hyatt Place Dubai/Wasl District is an affordable hotel that offers the warm hospitality and service of a luxury property, allowing guests to get ready for their next adventure,” adds Khogaly.
