The Grand Hyatt Athens is set to become largest Grand Hyatt-branded hotel in Europe by 2023 following the completion of a major investment project that includes extensive expansion and renovation works, the company announced.
The Grand Hyatt Athens is the first Grand Hyatt branded hotel in Greece and the first Hyatt hotel in the Greek capital.The hotel, located on Syngrou Avenue and within walking distance to main Athens sites and museums, is the second Hyatt branded hotel in Greece together with sister property Hyatt Regency in Thessaloniki.
Aimed at business and leisure travelers seeking exceptional accommodation, the city hotel includes suites and rooms designed by studio MKV Design and equipped with the latest amenities.
Grand Hyatt Athens goes ‘grander’
Having entered its final stage, the investment project, which began two years ago, involves the expansion of the existing hotel with the addition and redevelopment of the adjacent building (former ODEON cinema).
The new building, which has an impressive Doric-style facade, will include 8 floors that will all be connected to those of the existing hotel building.
In terms of accommodation, 227 new rooms and suites will be added, bringing the total number of rooms at the Grand Hyatt Athens to 548 – among them suites with their own plunge pool, something unique for a city hotel in Athens.
A second swimming pool will be added to the rooftop, with stunning views over the Acropolis, making the Grand Hyatt Athens the only hotel in Athens with four pools, including the existing rooftop pool, the atrium pool & bar and the pool of its indoor Spa.
Management has also shown great importance to the hotel’s conference and event spaces that now occupy three levels and reach 4,400 square meters and include an Executive Lounge, meeting and syndicate rooms, rooms for interviews and for private dinners.
“Having a full sense of responsibility, our team is proud and ready with hard work, commitment and determination to contribute to the establishment of Grand Hyatt Athens in the changing Athenian hotel scene …and offer unique experiences and curated services,” said Grand Hyatt Athens General Manager Panos Almyrantis.
The Grand Hyatt Athens, which first opened its doors in 2018, is managed by Knossians/Y&T Daskalantonakis Group under the ownership of real estate investment and development companies Henderson Park and Hines.
