Hyatt House planned for Huntsville

US: A planning application for an extended-stay Hyatt hotel in downtown Huntsville, Alabama, is due to be considered by the local council.

The nine-storey Hyatt House would include 145 units, a full-service restaurant and rooftop bar, according to the development agreement between the city of Huntsville and Southaven Associates LLC of Birmingham. It would be built on what is currently a surface parking lot at Holmes Avenue and Jefferson Street across from the federal courthouse – an area targeted for improvements in the downtown master plan adopted by the city in 2017. The agreement stipulates that construction must begin by the end of the year and the hotel must be open for business by December 31, 2021.

In the development agreement, the city agreed to make infrastructure improvements to the site to facilitate the hotel as well as purchase for not more than $600,000 land adjoining the hotel site for a public plaza area. The city will also lease to the hotel up to 205 parking spaces combined between the yet-to-be-built Greene Street garage and the Clinton Avenue garage at no charge for three years. Starting with the fourth year, rent at escalating rates will be charged to the hotel for the parking spaces.

Hyatt says the Hyatt House brand "caters to mid-to-upper income extended-stay guests looking for spacious accommodations with the comforts and conveniences of home”.
