First Look Inside the New Hyatt Place St. Pete

Located in the heart of the Waterfront Arts District, Hyatt Place St. Pete opens its doors on September 26. Bringing elements inspired by the city, the 15-story, 175-room hotel will be the first upscale select service Hyatt in St. Pete.

Full-service features with select service cost

Hyatt Place St. Pete features a creative restaurant concept, 4,500 square-feet of event space, and a rooftop pool deck and bar complete with sweeping views of Tampa Bay. It will also host 3 full-service bars and a sidewalk café.

The hotel’s quality offerings and atmosphere will be positioned closer to a full-service hotel with rates that will be in-line with select service brands.

Guests will enjoy spacious rooms, complimentary Wi-Fi and hot breakfast daily. Additional amenities include an oversized state-of-the-art gym, live entertainment 2-3 nights per week, and frequent community-focused social programming on the rooftop pool deck.

“We look forward to bringing the type of thoughtful, quality service that Hyatt is known for to the Sunshine City, ”said General Manager David Cuadra. “There will finally be a Hyatt product in St. Petersburg, which is something World of Hyatt Rewards travelers have been waiting for, for quite some time.”

Next in line to elevate the Burg’s entertainment scene

Hyatt Place St. Pete has a bevy of local partners lined up for various events and offerings, such as poolside yoga with The Body Electric Yoga Company, and beverage partners like St. Petersburg Distillery, Green Bench Brewing Co., Cycle Brewing, St. Pete Brewing, and Black Crow Coffee Co.

“We’ve been given the freedom to create a hotel experience that hones in on the things that are quintessentially St. Pete…From our interior design to our food and beverage offerings, we’ve created a very craft-centric hotel that we think locals and tourists will want to come back to.”- Director of Sales Ryan Tarrant.
