The Spanish chain will invest twelve million to renovate and condition the two hotels
Hesperia Hotels & Resorts and Hyatt Hotels Corporation have signed two franchise agreements for the opening of two hotels in Spain, located in Madrid and Barcelona, under the Hyatt Regency brand, through which the Spanish chain will maintain the ownership and operational management of the two establishments.
Specifically, it is the ‘Hyatt Regency Hesperia’, with 171 rooms, until now the Hotel Hesperia Madrid and the ‘Hyatt Regency Barcelona Fira’ (until now Hotel Hesperia Barcelona Tower) with 280 rooms, which will open under this brand from four quarter of this year. Both have a five-star category and constitute two of the most valuable assets of the Hesperia chain.
Hesperia will make an investment of twelve million euros in the coming months for the refurbishment of the two hotels to the standards of the Hyatt Regency brand, which will land in Spain, the hotelier said.
Hyatt Regency is one of the ‘premium’ brands of Hyatt, which has more than 190 locations around the world, including 18 in Europe, although until now it did not have a presence in our country. In Spain, Hyatt has three hotels (‘Park Hyatt Mallorca’, ‘Hyatt Centric Gran Via Madrid’ and ‘Hotel Sofia Barcelona’.
