Houston’s Galleria to Welcome Hyatt Regency Hotel
- Oct 30, 2014
Houston’s Galleria will be home to a new Hyatt Hotel in the fall of 2015. The Hyatt Hotels Corp. recently announced that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a franchise agreement with Songy HighRoads, an Atlanta-based company, for the development of the Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria.
The new hotel will be located at 2626 Sage Road, on the northwest corner of Sage Road and West Alabama Street. It will be developed on a 7.6-acre plot adjacent to the mixed-use project Galleria Plaza. Upon build-out, it will join a Whole Foods Market, retail and specialty stores, luxury apartments and office towers.
The hotel will encompass 325 rooms on 14 stories, and it will feature 12,000 square feet of meeting and conference space, a large fitness center and a pool deck. Songy HighRoads currently has a second hotel under development in the Galleria submarket, the 162-room, limited service Hyatt Place.
“We began construction of Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria in December 2013, and are looking forward to a fall 2015 opening,” stated Todd Nocerini, COO of Songy HighRoads. “The Galleria area is one of Houston’s most important commercial submarkets, and we are delighted to be bringing the Hyatt Regency brand, in tandem with Aimbridge Hospitality as our hotel manager, to business and leisure travelers visiting the area.”
“The Galleria area of Houston offers an incredible opportunity to interface with the formidable office and retail population in the vicinity. We are pleased to add Hyatt Regency Houston Galleria to our portfolio, and look forward to working with the great team at Songy HighRoads,” stated Dave Johnson, Aimbridge Hospitality’s president & CEO.
