Hyatt has entered into an agreement for the first Hyatt-branded property in Scotland and the third Hyatt Regency hotel in the United Kingdom. With 187 guest rooms and 98 apartments, Hyatt Regency Edinburgh Marina is expected to open in 2021 as the premier hotel and residential destination in Scotland’s capital city. In addition to guestrooms and apartments, Hyatt Regency Edinburgh Marina will include a 10,000ft² conference and banquet centre, as well as a restaurant and bar. The new hotel will also feature a tranquil spa offering boutique fitness classes and restorative therapies. With these convenient amenities, and a prime location just outside the city centre amongst stunning scenery, this hotel will be a true one-stop-shop destination for both domestic and international travellers in Scotland’s historic capital.
“I am thrilled that Hyatt is announcing plans for the first Hyatt hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland, as part of the exciting new Edinburgh Marina development,” said Guido Fredrich, regional vice president development Europe. “Edinburgh Marina is the perfect foundation for us to launch our brand in Scotland, opening a new era for Hyatt and creating a great new tourism opportunity for Edinburgh.”
“This is great news for the city of Edinburgh and a huge boost to its tourism industry,” said Hugh Taylor OBE of Michels & Taylor, who advised the developer. “Hyatt is a highly regarded international hotelier and is a perfect fit for this upscale waterfront development.”
Hyatt Regency Edinburgh Marina will add to the growing Hyatt portfolio in the UK, which includes Hyatt Regency Birmingham, Hyatt Regency London – The Churchill, Andaz London Liverpool Street, Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport, and Hyatt Place West London/Hayes.
