Hyatt House just opened an aparthotel in Rosebank – 3 months after launching in Sandton
Hyatt House has opened its second aparthotel in Johannesburg, this time in the suburb of Rosebank, just three months after launching its brand in Sandton.
The Hyatt Hotels Corporation continues to expand its aparthotel brand in a bid to capitalise on the extended-stay market. Over the past decade, Hyatt House has grown to include more than 120 aparthotels – properties including a mix of suite-style apartments and hotels – across 106 cities.
Hyatt House made its first move onto the African continent in November 2021, when it opened the 62-room aparthotel at 125 Ann Crescent in Johannesburg’s busy Sandton district. This came at a time when much of the tourism and hospitality industry was left reeling amid consecutive coronavirus-induced travel restrictions.
But the demand for extended-stay accommodation – which offers all the basic amenities of an apartment integrated into the hotel’s infrastructure – has grown throughout the pandemic. A long-term stay, of 28 nights or more, is Airbnb’s fastest-growing category and some hotels in South Africa have begun to convert traditional suites into apartments.
Hyatt House in Rosebank officially opened its doors on Tuesday. It’s located just a block away from Melrose Arch, with easy access to shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues.
“Hyatt House Johannesburg Rosebank is everything the name represents – a welcoming and warm environment that encourages guests to live like residents,” said Asif Raza, the cluster general manager of Hyatt South Africa.
“We want each and every guest who comes through our doors to feel that they can let their real-life routines roll on, even when they’re on the road.”
