New on Hyatt.com: Hyatt Times Square New York

While making another booking this morning, I saw this:

"Opening Fall 2013"

I don't recall seeing this property--located on 45th--ever mentioned. Anyone familiar with this?

Well, there were a few mentions about two years ago:
http://www.flyertalk.com/forum/hyatt...struction.html

But there's been quite a bit of commentary in recent months at BoardingArea. Here are two examples:

http://boardingarea.com/blogs/milesf...-a-park-hyatt/

And people say the bloggers add nothing to the conversation…

I believe thee is a new Hyatt Place on 36th Street. It is a class 4 hotel. All other NYC Hyatt's are class 5 or 6.

It is pretty amazing that in a few short years, Hyatt went from having one Hyatt in all of Manhattan (after losing the Park Hyatt Stanhope), to by early next year having 8! And in about 1 square mile in mid town, there will be 6: A Park Hyatt, an Andaz, a Grand Hyatt, a Hyatt Place, and two regular Hyatts. My head is spinning with the choices now!

I am excited about this new property and about the upcoming Park, but mostly about having more options.

Don't Think it's Hyatt Place

Since Hyatt Place (36th st) is slated to open March 14th -- of this year.... know 'cause we've got a ressie for first week and haven't heard otherwise.

It looks like the Hyatt Union Square got pushed back just a little. Opening date is now April 30, 2013.

Also, since the Hyatt 48 Lex is going up to a category 5 (from a category 4), both these Hyatts will be the best redemption value for full service Hyatts in NYC.

And I won't be staying in any of those currently open, although I would re-try Andaz 5th Ave if they ever got true blackout curtains/shades. My next booking is at the NY Palace, and so it will remain until either Andaz fixes the curtains or the PH opens.

Shaping up for November soft open?

This article reveals that mgmt. is targeting a soft opening on November 10 and a formal opening in December.

No word on blackout curtains...

Looks like this hotel is opening Dec-3rd. I received a promo e-mail announcing the opening and 7500 GP points for a 2 night stay. Here's the launch page:

http://hyatthotels.hyatt.com/content...are-offer.html

BTW shows up as 22,000 points (cat 6)
