US: Developer The Sam Moon Group has begun construction on a Hyatt House hotel as part of the 69-acre Metropark Square mixed-use development in Shenandoah, Texas.

Set to open in November 2020, the five-storey hotel will have around 150 rooms. Shane Williams, the group's vice president of construction, said: "It's geared toward the person that might have to come into town for meetings and stay for a couple days or a couple weeks, or people like myself who might have to stay (in town for meetings) for two or three days at a time. It's nice to have not only a hotel room, but a space where you can sit down in a living-room type environment and have an office set up."

The units will range from studios to two-bedroom suites with kitchens. The extended-stay hotel will also have a fitness room, pool, outdoor and indoor social spaces and a lounge serving cocktails and meals. VCC is the contractor and Type Six is the architect for the project.

Williams said the Hyatt House is the first of three total potential hotels to be built in the mixed-use project.

Metropark Square will also include a 10-screen AMC Theatre and a Dave & Buster's, multi-family housing, restaurants, retail amenities and a central green space area.
