Hyatt Place will boost its presence in Melbourne’s north with a second location on the city’s southern outskirts.

A second Hyatt Place hotel will be added in Melbourne from 2021 as part of the evolving Caribbean Park logistics and business hub on the city’s south-eastern outskirts, the company announced today.

Positioned on the eastern frontage of the business precinct, Hyatt Place Melbourne Caribbean Park currently comprises six towers and is the largest independent business development outside of the CBD. It is expected more than 30 new commercial premises will be added in time as part of its Master Plan. The addition of Hyatt Place will see the brand add to its existing presence at Essendon Fields, near Tullamarine Airport in the city’s north.

The hotel will offer 170 rooms aimed at busy professionals, with a café and bar, grab-and-go food market, lobby lounge and fitness centre. Development at the technology hub continues to see new office and commercial space built, along with new parkland and residential communities, retail areas and lifestyle attractions. To supplement weekday demand, the hotel’s positioning close to the Mornington Peninsula and Yarra Valley sets it up for ongoing popularity with leisure tourists.

Hyatt Asia-Pacific Group President, David Udell, said the brand was excited to be working with Caribbean Park to develop the hotel.

“Surrounded by open green spaces and leisure amenities and with easy access to major business districts, Hyatt Place Melbourne Caribbean Park will cater to high-energy professionals who seek work-life balance when on the road.”

Construction at Hyatt Place Melbourne Caribbean Park is due to begin in the latter stages of 2019.
