New Hyatt Place hotel lands in Virginia
Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced the debut of a 119-key property operated by Olympia Hotel Management in Harrisonburg, which offers impressive views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.
Olympia Hotel Management has further grown its presence in college markets with the arrival of Hyatt Place Harrisonburg.
A new hospitality offering
The contemporary Hyatt Place Harrisonburg is now open, having been developed by Harman Realty, with Harman Construction serving as general contractor. This property, which is operated by Olympia Hotel Management, provides a convenient base for those looking to stay near Harrisonburg Crossing and the James Madison University campus.
“We are delighted to open our doors and welcome guests to Hyatt Place Harrisonburg,” said Shannon Sikes, general manager of Hyatt Place Harrisonburg. “Hyatt Place hotels are designed for travellers and professionals who want to balance their priorities and get the most out of their stay, so they can get the most out of their lives, and that’s exactly what this hotel will offer our guests in Harrisonburg.”
“The team at Olympia Hotel Management were the ideal partners for this development,” said Randy L Harman, CEO for Innovation Hospitality and Harman Realty. “Their knowledge of select-service hotels and their experience with creating unique hotel restaurants were key to making this work. I’m very confident that their management style is the perfect match for our new Hyatt Place property.”
Impressive mountain vistas
The new hotel houses 119 guestrooms and suites, with accommodation on the higher floors providing memorable views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its notable amenities include complimentary wifi, a 24-hour fitness centre, an indoor heated pool, 1,977 sq ft of meeting space, ample parking and convenient EV charging stations.
Moreover, guests are offered a complimentary breakfast at The Breakfast Bar, and served comfort food over lunch and dinner at The Placery restaurant and bar in the lobby. Regionally sourced ingredients are then showcased in the menus of Chef Dan Evans at the hotel’s premier dining venue, Ridge Room Rooftop Tavern.
Olympia also manages Hyatt Place Chicago-South University Medical Center, Hyatt House Mount Pleasant-Midtown in South Carolina, Hyatt House Tallahassee Capitol – University in Florida and Hyatt Place Cleveland/Westlake/Crocker Park in Ohio.
“We’re thrilled that Harman Realty selected us as their management partner,” said John Schultzel, chief growth officer for Olympia. “We have a clearly defined niche in college markets and we very much enjoy our relationship with Hyatt.
“Our experience in developing signature F&B concepts was certainly part of their selection rationale. Managing a standout hotel in a campus community is our favourite kind of assignment.”
