Medellin Colombia Hyatt Hotel
On June 6, 2014, Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide announced plans to expand its rapidly growing and successful portfolio of hotels and resorts in Medellin, Colombia. HyattHotels Corporation has opened the first of its new hotels in Colombia, the MEDELLI COLOMBIA HYATT Hotel, a 1,000-room, $1.5 billion luxury hotel and resort complex.
The 372-room luxury property is located in the heart of Medellin, Colombia's second largest city and capital of the country with a population of more than 3 million.
This area has restaurants and hotels, but has a much more homely ambience compared to the central area on the west side. Most of the posh hotels are scattered throughout the city, many of them located in both the centre and west of the Old Town. Of course, there are many accommodations, such as renting a condominium that extends towards the airport, but you can also find hostels, including a youth hostel, in the area. Fortunately, there are many good hotels in Cartagena as well as some of the most popular tourist destinations in Colombia.
Live your holiday dreams without bloating your budget and don't miss one of Colombia's most beautiful, colourful and Mediterranean resorts.
And as if that wasn't enough, Casa San Agustin also features a jade-lined plunge pool reminiscent of the hotel's communal pool. In a few weeks the mermaids and mermen are to make their debut in the pool of the Hotel Medellin.
The 297-room Grand Hyatt Bogota will cost about $130 million and is scheduled to open in early 2015. Hyatts Regency Cartagena is also under construction and will offer over 1,000 hotel rooms and suites, as well as a spa and fitness center.
In 2016, City Express will invest approximately $40 million in hotels in Bogota, Medellin and Barranquilla. Accor already has a number of hotels under construction in Colombia, such as the Hyatt Regency Cartagena, and further projects in Barra del Fuego and Bucaramanga are planned. While the hotel chain has not yet submitted its own hotel projects for Colombia, but has expressed interest, there are several other hotel chains in the country with similar plans. The chain already had a hotel project in Boca Raton, New York, and a new hotel in Buenos Aires, Argentina.
On the brand side, Müller said: "Holiday Inn and Holiday Inn Express are an important growth brand for the company in the region.
Hilton also sees a growing trend for luxury in the region, he said, citing the Waldorf Astoria - brand hotels in New York and Los Angeles and the Hilton Garden Inn in Las Vegas. He pointed to the company's partnership with IHG, the world's largest hotel operator, and said that this partnership was the key to its expansion in Latin America. Mueller said Colombia was the region's biggest growth country - pointing to its proximity to Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Peru, Colombia and Venezuela.
