Three months after opening its first modular-built hotel in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, NewcrestImage opened a conventional-built Hyatt Place next door.
The Hyatt Place Oklahoma City / Bricktown, a five-story, 134-room full-service upscale hotel, opened in late March. It shares an outdoor courtyard and swimming pool with the neighboring AC Hotel by Marriott, which opened in December.
The Hyatt Place property is the 28th hotel in NewcrestImage’s portfolio. Both hotels are in Bricktown, a destination market that has seen the transformation of empty brick warehouses into hotels, restaurants, bars, retail shops and office space. It has also attracted new construction such as hotels as well as a convention center and the Brickyard, a ball park.
Mehul Patel, chairman and CEO of NewcrestImage, said Bricktown “is a distinctive destination that respects the neighborhood’s past as a warehouse district, while emphasizing the area’s repurposed and revitalized modern spirit.” NewcrestImage has a third hotel in Bricktown, a 124-room Holiday Inn Express opened in 2015.
The Hyatt Place features a “cozy contemporary” style in guest rooms plus a lobby with customized, locally themed design and furnishings. Amenities include multiple food options, including freshly prepared meals 24 hours a day and a “coffee to cocktails” bar; a 24-hour gym and 1,800 square feet of flexible, high-tech meeting space.
NewcrestImage of Dallas, Texas, has 15 properties under construction or in development in the U.S.
