Hyatt Welcomes You Into Their New Hyatt House

September 20, 2011 at 12:41 PM | by | ()

If you're a frequent guest at Hyatt's Summerfield Suites, things are going to get a lot more homey during your next extended stay. That's because Hyatt Hotels has announced they are rebranding all of their Summerfield Suites hotels (38 in total) as well as the Hotel Sierra hotels they just acquired (16 of these) into a new Hyatt brand called Hyatt House.

Hyatt Hotels made the announcement this morning saying:

Inspired by extensive research and consumer insights, Hyatt House seamlessly combines form and function to create a warm, inviting, and comfortable environment. Upon arrival, guests are encouraged to relax with design elements and amenities that feel closer to home, allowing them to easily connect with others through enhanced social spaces.

Such home elements include the Great Lounge in each of the Hyatt House lobbies which will be a multi-purpose area with plenty of seating for socializing, outlets for gadget charging and a glass-enclosed game room equipped with a high-tech entertainment system. Just off the Great Lounge will be the H Bar an island that will transform from an "Eggs Your Way" customized breakfast bar in the morning to a cocktail bar in the evening. There will also be a place to socialize outdoors with another built-in kitchen and a fire pit for late-night chats as well as a market for quick on-the-go items.

Up in the guestrooms, the configurations will be studio and one and two-bedroom kitchen suites that are designed to look like, well, a home. But more importantly, the rooms will be stocked with functional furniture like an entryway hall tree where guests can hang keys, jackets and umbrellas and a multi-tasking island where you can prepare a meal, watch TV or work from your laptop. There will also be 32" flat-panel HDTVs and DVD players along with the Hyatt Grand Bed and a Dream Shower.

But most importantly, there will be free WiFi throughout the hotel.

All in all, Hyatt House sounds very much like Hyatt Place Hotels but with the pizzazz of Andaz Hotels.

Interestingly enough, while the hotel brand concept is new, the name Hyatt House is not as that was the name of the first Hyatt hotel when it opened in 1957. We're loving the Hyatt House logo too which is a double lowercase/uppercase "H" in a bold blue color with the top right corner looking like a pie piece in a brighter hue. Except it's not really a pie piece, it's supposed to be a "curved square flag." Either way, it's cute and we like it and we're excited to spend a night in Hyatt House.

Speaking of...the name changes of Summerfield Suites and Hotel Sierras to Hyatt House should be completed by early 2012 with service upgraded and remodeling expected to happen over the next year. If you stay in a new Hyatt House, you must let us know how it went!

Hyatt House

Love, love, love the name!  It's perfect.  What a way to reference Hyatt's past and bring it into the future!


That's a pretty good name. Easy and simple but still has a lot of meaning. Can't wait to get into the House!

i like it

Wow, am pleasantly surprised. Summerfield Suites sounded too suburban, Extended StayAmerica-ish, so looking forward to Hyatt House.

I was mistaken

I was mistaken at first when I first saw the pictures of the hotel. They looked exactly like a well designed private home. I think Hyatt is definitely on to something by implementing such a homely design. It certainly makes someone feel at home, and the guests would feel like they are room mates. This will undoubtedly foster a more social and friendly environment.

Great Wine and Food

Hubby and I just stayed at a Hyatt House near the airport in Denver.  What a treat!!!  We liked it so much, we stayed an extra night.  Breakfast was great each morning.  Social hour in the evening was way beyond our expectations.  We met some great people there and unlike any other experience at a hotel social hour... the staff brought out the extra bottles of wine right before closing and poured what was left for the guests.  Who does that????  We made sure to tip the nice people.  We were told the wine is made special just for the Hyatt's.  Both red and white are delicious.  The room was like staying in your own apartment.  We will defnitely be back.
