Hyatt Hotels Corporation and LATAM Hotels Corp have officially opened Hyatt Place Managua, the first Hyatt-branded hotel in the capital city of Managua, Nicaragua. The hotel features the Hyatt Place brand’s intuitive design, casual atmosphere and practical amenities, such as free Wi-Fi and 24-hour food offerings. The hotel is owned by LATAM Corp and operated by GHL.
“We are delighted to open Hyatt Place Managua through our relationship with Hyatt. It is the second Hyatt Place hotel we are opening in Central America and we believe it will be a key player among Managua’s hospitality offerings,” said Fernando Paiz, president, LATAM Hotel Corp. “The hotel’s walkway connecting it to the Galerias Santo Domingo shopping center is an important feature for guests, in addition to the brand’s 24/7 services and modern amenities, creating a perfect stay in the city.”
Hyatt Place Managua is the second of five Hyatt Place hotels that LATAM Hotel Corp. is slated to open in Central America over the next three years. The first hotel, Hyatt Place Tegucigalpa, opened in September 2015, and Hyatt Place Guatemala City is expected to open before the end of 2016.
