Malaysia's first Hyatt House hotel, a brand of Hyatt Hotels Corp, located in Mont Kiara, Kuala Lumpur will welcome guests beginning 1 December 2018.
The four-star upscale residential-inspired Hyatt House KL Mont'Kiara — which is part of Arcoris Mont' Kiara, a development by UEM Sunrise Bhd — is targeting business and leisure travellers from Southeast Asia, said Hyatt House general manager Bennett Peter.
Hyatt House has 298 guestrooms, comprising 450 sq ft studios as well as one- and two-bedroom suites of 480 and 750 sq ft, respectively.
The hotel has the essentials such as security, maintenance and housekeeping, and facilities such as a restaurant, meeting space, skypool, fitness centre, coin-operated laundrette and games room.
The published rate for the studio is RM400 per night, while the suites range from RM450 to RM550 per night.
"The rates will fluctuate on a day-to-day basis. They will also depend on the number of nights the guests stay with us. Our rooms are built for extended stay. The one-bedroom suite is ideal for short-term stay like one week, a month or more. The two-bedroom is good for expatriates and locals who plan to stay for six to 12 months. The suites have a living room and full-kitchen facilities and include daily housekeeping.
"We have received bookings and guests will start staying with us from Saturday. The more popular guestrooms are the studios and one-bedroom suites," Peter told NST Property.
Hyatt House offers casual home-style comfort, symbolic of the Hyatt House brand.
He said the extended stay concept is becoming popular around the world. In China, it is a top trend. It is also popular in the United States and is gaining traction in Asia.
"We are upbeat on the entry of Hyatt House into Malaysia where the trend is becoming increasingly popular among expatriates and business people.
"Mont Kiara is the first choice when it comes to residential living. It is perceived as a very safe location. It is a good 'marriage' between UEM Sunrise and Hyatt Hotels & Resorts," said Peter.
