    Hyatt has announced the opening of two new hotels to join the brand, and they couldn’t be more different, with one sitting at the foot of the Swiss Alps, and the other on the edge of the desert with panoramic sea views. The hotels also represent two different brands within the Hyatt family. The Hyatt Place brand, as showcased by Hyatt Place Zurich Airport The Circle, is all about designing for flexibility, making it easier for guests to maintain their work and personal routines while travelling. Hyatt Centric and Hyatt Centric Jumeirah Dubai, on the other hand is all about the destination and providing an upscale, cosmopolitan and boutique guest experience.

    So, two hotels, two very different design stories, but both sharing the trademark Hyatt attention to detail and understanding of they dynamic requirements of guests and travellers.

    Hyatt Place Zurich Airport The Circle is the third Hyatt branded hotel and the first Hyatt Place branded hotel in Switzerland, as the brand continues to expand its footprint globally in markets that matter most to its guests and World of Hyatt members. The new hotel features the Hyatt Place brand’s intuitive design, combined with its trademark combination of casual atmosphere with practical amenities.

    The 300 key Hyatt Place hotel combines style, innovation and 24/7 conveniences to create an easy-to-navigate experience for today’s multi-tasking traveller. The guestrooms have been designed with separate spaces to sleep, work and play. Understanding the need for flexible space, convenient and communal workspaces have been created. Hyatt Place Zurich Airport The Circle is situated in The Circle destination and directly linked to Zurich Airport, representing one of the most central locations in Switzerland. Guests can conveniently enjoy the business and lifestyle offerings of The Circle, which includes shops, restaurants, a park, airport facilities and The Circle Convention Centre. After a productive day, guests can unwind in the park or take advantage of the great outdoors, as the Swiss Alps and Lake Zurich are nearby.

    “As the Zurich Airport and the Circle district continue to be a dynamic destination, we are excited to add to the momentum by welcoming the first Hyatt Place hotel to Switzerland,” said hotel manager at Hyatt Place Zurich Airport The Circle Ines Bruenn. “With our smartly designed social spaces and guestrooms with separate work and sleep areas, our multitasking, international and local guests can easily accomplish what they need to do while on the road, while both working and relaxing with nature right at their doorstep.”
