Cycas has signed a lease agreement to operate the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels, which are both on one site, close to Paris Charles De Gaulle airport. Cycas currently operates Hyatt Place London Heathrow Airport.
The five-storey building is located in Paris Nord 2 business park at 241 rue de la Belle Etoile in Roissy. It will have a total of 430 rooms - 309 at Hyatt Place and 121 at the Hyatt House extended-stay hotel - with the hotels sharing conference facilities, F&B outlets, a gym and a large swimming pool.
Developed by Kaufman & Broad, the hotels are set to open in the second half of 2020.
Asli Kutlucan, partner at Cycas Hospitality, said: "We are proud to continue our relationship with Hyatt through this agreement, which sees us managing the Hyatt House extended-stay brand for the first time. This is a major milestone in our international rollout plans, taking advantage of the growing and widely untapped market for the extended-stay concept in Europe to bridge the gap between hotels and home."
"With further deals in our pipeline in France and Germany, our next key focus, we are making steady progress towards our target of having more than 10,000 guest rooms open and operating by 2022. These are exciting times and we look forward to announcing further news soon," she added.
Felicity Black-Roberts, VP development, Europe and North Africa, at Hyatt Hotels, said: "We are delighted to be partnering with Cycas Hospitality on our first dual-branded project in Europe. We are confident that Cycas's extensive experience of successfully managing double-decker hotels will help us take full advantage of the many opportunities that this prime airport location offers for corporate as well as leisure travellers."
David Laurent, SVP commercial property and major urban projects at Kaufman & Broad, said: "This realisation demonstrates our expertise in hotel residences and proves our ability to respond to the hotel residence industry's demand. It also shows the capacity of Kaufman & Broad to develop several complex projects and meet the expectations of the population density and the new customs of the city."
