Prism Hotels & Resorts has announced the opening of the Hyatt Place LAX / Century Blvd and Hyatt House LAX / Century Blvd, both located directly adjacent to Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).
In the midst of LAX’s robust $14B renovation, the new properties are steps away from the airport’s highly anticipated “people mover,” and brings an elevated Hyatt experience to the rapidly evolving neighborhood.
Originally built in 1967 by famed architect Welton Becket, who was also behind LAX’s iconic Theme Building, the new dual-branded hotel development brings a fresh perspective to these two Hyatt brands with a mid-century modern design, the tallest rooftop terrace and only outdoor rooftop pool in the airport district, and two destination-worthy dining restaurants from local favorite Greenleaf Kitchen & Cocktails, including their signature healthy gourmet restaurant on the hotels’ lobby level and their first upscale dining concept, ShoresLAX, on the 15th floor rooftop.
“We are excited to introduce this impressive property to the LAX airport market,” says General Manager Kenan Tekin. “Located next to one of the busiest airports in the U.S., Hyatt Place LAX / Century Blvd and Hyatt House LAX / Century Blvd provide a new level of convenience and a host of exceptional amenities for travelers going through LAX.
“We’ve put an emphasis on high-comfort, resort-style amenities not found elsewhere in the airport district – from our fitness centre and rooftop pool to the unparalleled dining options at Greenleaf and ShoresLAX – that will attract both travelers and locals alike.”
As the first dual-branded Hyatt development in the Los Angeles area, the properties offer casual hospitality and purposeful service in a smartly designed, high-tech and contemporary environment. Whether visiting for a business trip, long layover, weekend getaway to L.A, or an event at the nearby Sofi Stadium, guests will be immersed in a relaxing atmosphere that allows for a seamless transition from work to play.
With design led by carrier johnson + CULTURE, the hotels feature a mid-century modern aesthetic inspired by the building’s 1960s architecture. Guests are greeted by a mix of rich wood tones, geometric light fixtures and tile patterns, multi-layered textures and bold accent colors, complemented by statement pieces like a vintage pool table in the lobby and waffle ceilings retrofitted from the previous office building.
Colourful artwork throughout the hotels, curated by Kalisher, is a nod to the Southern California lifestyle with imagery inspired by the geography, activities, and lifestyle, such as surfers and skateboarders, waves crashing and palm trees swaying. Other notable design elements include the main entry porte-cochere sculpture by renowned artist Christopher Puzio and a giant illuminated infinity glass art installation behind the check-in desk.
