Hyatt opens riverside London hotel in UK expansion push

Hyatt has opened its 13th affiliated UK hotel, on the banks of the river Thames in London.

The 142-room Hyatt Regency London Albert Embankment is the group's eighth property in the capital and has views of Big Ben.

The hotel, close to Vauxhall Tube station, previously operated under the Crowne Plaza brand and relaunched on 12 January, with the site remaining open during the transition.

Hyatt has "ambitious and strategic" growth plans for the UK in 2023 and beyond, the company said.

The Embankment site features floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the London skyline, 14th-floor executive suites with private balconies and lounge areas, a gym and more than 15,000 sq ft of meeting space.

The hotel's food and beverage outlets include North American-inspired restaurant Potus and rooftop restaurant, cocktail bar and shisha terrace Mezemiso, which serves Lebanese and Japanese cuisine.

"London remains a priority market for our planned brand growth in the UK and we are delighted to add Hyatt Regency London Albert Embankment to our expanding list of properties in the capital," said Felicity Black-Roberts, vice-president development of Hyatt Europe.

"This is the third Hyatt Regency-branded hotel in the city, further demonstrating how Hyatt is intentionally growing our brand portfolio in the UK, bringing our most renowned brands to the in-demand markets where our guests and World of Hyatt members want to be."

Other Hyatt-affiliated UK hotels include the Great Scotland Yard hotel, Andaz London Liverpool Street and Park Hyatt London River Thames.
