Visitors to Lansing have a new place to stay as the Hyatt Hotels opened its select service brand in Greater Lansing the first week of May.
Situated at the northern edge The Heights at Eastwood, the Hyatt Place Lansing
combines style, innovation and 24/7 conveniences to create a modern guest experience. Spacious rooms average 500 square feet—about 100 to 125 square feet bigger than the typical hotel room—and feature "suite" amenities like a mini-frig, a cozy corner couch, cable TV and complimentary WiFi.
The Hyatt Place is the only Hyatt brand property in Mid-Michigan. While close to high-end shopping, restaurants, and nightlife, the property offers its own onsite food and beverage. The Gallery Kitchen features casual foods like sandwiches, burgers, flat bread and pizza, as well as a coffee and cocktail bar. Breakfast comes free with the guest stay and includes hot and cold selections like skillets, egg sandwiches, multi-grain breads and pastries, fresh fruits, yogurt, oatmeal, juices and coffee.
"Our goal is to make everyone comfortable while they're here," says Jennifer Moeckel, Hyatt Place Lansing Director of Sales. "We gear ourselves toward being stylish, innovative and built on 24-hour convenience."
The Hyatt Place targets business travelers during the week. On weekends, the focus shifts to casual visitors who come to the area for sports, arts and culture, or family or social activities.
"Our location can't be beat," Moeckel says. "Guests can walk to shopping and dining, and the stores are perfect for families, students and everyday travelers. As The Heights expands, we'll have an all-encompassing area with restaurants, movie theatres and entertainment that will make it all come together."
The six-story Hyatt Place Lansing features 125 guestrooms, and 2,000 square feet of meeting space for groups up to 100 people. An onsite shuttle can transport guests to destinations within a five-mile radius. The new hotel created six managerial positions and 34 hourly positions for a total of 40 jobs.
