First Dual-branded Hyatt Development in Los Angeles Opens

We are excited to announce the opening of our project: the Hyatt Place LAX / Century Blvd and Hyatt House LAX / Century Blvd! The design is inspired by the 1960’s architecture. “Guests are greeted by a mix of rich wood tones, geometric light fixtures and tile patterns, multi-layered textures and bold accent colors, complemented by statement pieces like a vintage pool table in the lobby and waffle ceilings retrofitted from the previous office building. Colorful artwork throughout the hotels, curated by Kalisher, is a nod to the Southern California lifestyle with imagery inspired by the geography, activities, and lifestyle, such as surfers and skateboarders, waves crashing and palm trees swaying.”
