    Hyatt House hotels are designed to welcome guests as extended stay residents who are looking for the conveniences of home, while enjoying the comfort of a luxury hotel stay. Modern, apartment-style suites with fully equipped kitchens and separate living and sleeping areas provide guests a stylish and comfortable environment, making it easier for guests to maintain their work and personal routines while traveling.

    Earlier this month, Hyatt House Johannesburg Sandton celebrated its opening, marking the debut of the Hyatt House brand in Africa, while expanding the brand’s footprint globally. Owned by an affiliate of Millat Properties, Hyatt House Johannesburg Sandton is conveniently located in the leafy suburb of Sandton, only moments away from Johannesburg’s upmarket Sandton City Shopping Centre & Nelson Mandela Square, with its vibrant, premium dining and social scene. In line with the brand ethos, the property provides guests the service and convenience of hotel living with the casual comforts of home.

    “Hyatt House Sandton is everything the name represents – a welcoming and warm environment that encourages guests to live like residents,” said Hotel Manager Atef Soliman. “We want each and every guest who comes through our doors to feel that they can let their real-life routines roll on, even when they’re on the road. Whether guests are visiting for a short trip or an extended stay, we know Hyatt House Johannesburg Sandton is the perfect place to offer a personalised hotel experience that will make everyone feel right at home.”

    “Opening a hotel in the current global economic climate is not for the faint-hearted, but I am resolute that in times of adversity there is great opportunity.” says Hamza Farooqui, Chief Executive Officer of Millat Group. “In South Africa’s case when it comes to business and leisure tourism – in a what we hope will be a post-pandemic environment – this property will become an important symbol of renewed local and regional economic growth. Our investment is a manifestation of the group’s central operating philosophy of strong belief and optimism in the bright future of the African continent.  We are particularly proud of the property itself. Hyatt House Johannesburg Sandton offers modern and spacious rooms and apartments allowing guests feel right at home in one of South Africa’s most important economic centres.”

    The Hyatt House brand is aimed at extended stay residents and currently has a footprint over 100 locations across the world, where they offer their trademark residential style design in conjunction with the comfort and convenience of a hotel stay.
