Hyatt Place Pasadena has officially opened across from the Pasadena Convention Center, offering an ideal location and high-end amenities for meeting and event planners. 

The 189-room property is the first Hyatt-branded hotel and features the Hyatt Place brand’s intuitive design, casual atmosphere and enhanced food and beverage offerings. The hotel is led by Ensemble Real Estate Solutions & Investments, and operated by Interstate Hotels &
Resorts.

“It’s an exciting time for our destination. In addition to recent hotel renovations, the new Hyatt Place adds to the city’s flourishing hotel offerings and amenities. The property allows us to attract larger conventions and meetings to the destination,” says Jeanne O’Grady Goldschmidt, executive director of the Pasadena Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Hyatt Place’s location is ideal for those looking to experience all that the city has to offer, while remaining within reach of Old Pasadena and the convention center.”

Hyatt Place Pasadena offers more than 3,000 square feet of flexible, high-tech meeting/function space in addition to free Wi-Fi, a coffee to cocktails bar offering specialty coffee and premium beer, wine and cocktails, as well as a 24-hour fitness center. 

Due to COVID-19, non-essential travel was, or has been, banned for months. Long anticipated trips and in-person gatherings were canceled and people have adjusted to the new normal: staying at home and meeting over Zoom. However, states have been slowly lifting restrictions, and non-essential travel will soon be happening across the country again. However, some may not be as comfortable with the thought of traveling as they were before the pandemic.  

 

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.
