Hersha Hospitality, the folks responsible for bringing Hyatt 48Lex and Hyatt Union Square to New York City, have just acquired a new property in Miami Beach--the Courtyard by Marriott Miami Beach Oceanfront. Hersha paid $95 million for the 263-room hotel and its adjacent beachfront which in its former life was known as the art deco hotel, Cadillac Hotel.
The full details of the purchase are here but Hersha does plan on building an additional 93-room all-suite oceanfront tower as well as more meeting space and a parking structure. The construction is expected begin next year and will finish in 2013.
All these fancy new upgrades have us wondering if Hersha will ditch the Courtyard by Marriott brand in favor of a Hyatt Hotel.

Another Monday, another bit of juicy New York hotel opening gossip! This week, we're zeroing in on the Hyatt 48Lex, the mysterious, 116-room hotel that—last we heard from the company anyway—was set to open "early next year," meaning 2011.
Now, notes an anonymous tipster, it's popped up on Hyatt's corporate booking site—but only if you search generally for New York properties like the nearby Grand Hyatt or the Andaz 5th or Wall Street. While there's no booking available yet, and thus no idea of the price point, we're promised an opening date of April, already a bit later than what we'd consider "early" in the year.

Back in November, we learned that Hyatt Hotels and Hersha Hospitality were teaming up to build a new Hyatt in Union Square in NYC at 13th Street and 4th Avenue. And while we still don't know what Hyatt brand will go in here, we do know that this is what the hotel is going to look like.
We found this shot on Kamali Wire, from hospitality consultant Steven Kamali. Kamali didn't disclose that this hotel would be a Hyatt but we put two and two together. Unless, there is another hotel opening up on the corner somewhere at 13th and 4th? We think not. But will it be called Union like the signage says or will it be called a Hyatt? That remains to be seen.

We've been speculating about the hotel-soon-to-be-known as Hyatt 48Lex for a little while now. But the latest announcement from Hyatt and Hersha Development Corp. has us excited about yet another new Hyatt for New York--one just south of Union Square.
The press release about both Hyatt 48Lex and the mysterious newcomer says that the second property is a '175-room innovative and design forward hotel in Greenwich Village, near Union Square.'
We spied this job listing for a general manager for "Hyatt48Lex" but there is still no website for the hotel yet. However, Hersha Hospitality has been teasing the hotel world with this property for a while now, saying it will have 116 luxury suites, and high-end retailers in the ground-level space. We've also heard that this hotel will have a rather lively food and beverage component with possibly a celeb chef.
Hmmm...this is all starting to sound rather Andazy, isn't it? Could this actually be another Andaz for NYC, making it the third one total? Or is this a completely new breed of Hyatt?
What do you know about the new Hyatt at 48 and Lex? Give us the scoop!!

Welcome to the corner of 48th Street and Lexington Avenue in Manhattan—and our latest burning question. What is this hotel? And when will it open? When little is released about a new property, especially one in New York City, our interest is piqued. And so it is with this glass-fronted number to be run by Hersha Hospitality.
Here’s what we’ve learned about the mysterious hotel:
It's been a long time since the Paramount Hotel was one of the hottest spots in NYC. Ditto its location in Times Square. But with news of a new club on the way, maybe it's time for a Paramount comeback?
We're hearing that hospitality consultant Steven Kamali, along with the peeps behind Tenjune and Abe & Arthur's are at work on a new club concept for the hotel's 10,000 square-foot restaurant space. Once upon a time this was the Diamond Horseshoe, a vaudeville-style joint that boasted Gene Kelly and Broadway types as customers. Can Kamali and co. bring a dash of New York cool back to the hotel?
