I don’t have much to add to Hyatt’s Press Release here, as these are under construction and I am hardly an “extended stay brand” kind of guy – yet I think it’s worth noting as the Hyatt footprint continues to grow.
In fact, growing the Hyatt footprint seems to be the primary goal here and that in and of itself is laudable, as middle-of-nowhere Courtyards and Hampton Inns are what force many business travelers to hook into those loyalty programs instead of World of Hyatt.
In the Hyatt statement which you can read here, they say Hyatt Studios “marks Hyatt’s entry into upper-midscale lodging in the Americas”
They go on to say “Guestrooms will marry form with function and offer suites with kitchen amenities to provide comfort during extended trips away from home. The Hyatt Studios food and beverage experience will include a complimentary grab-and-go breakfast and a best-in-class, 24-hour market with a wide variety of options to satisfy extended-stay guests – from health-conscious snacks and ready-made meals to sweet and savory staples to fulfill travel cravings, all of which can be prepared and enjoyed in the guestroom’s kitchen featuring a multi-function convection microwave.”
I tried to place where this falls on the ladder of Hyatt’s lower end properties and was told that “Hyatt Studios will be one tier lower than the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands and serve a different guest and different guest need. Hyatt Studios will be tailored to extended stay and longer-term guests looking for a better experiences than existing offerings in the market.”
