Hyatt plans branded hotel in Algeria

A Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) affiliate has entered into a management agreement with Société d´Investissement Hôtelière EPE SPA for a Hyatt Regency hotel to be located at Houari Boumediene Airport in Algiers, Algeria, the company said.

The hotel, expected to open late 2018, will mark the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Algeria. Hyatt Regency Algiers Airport will add to Hyatt´s growing brand presence in Africa, following the successful openings of Hyatt Place Taghazout Bay in Morocco and Park Hyatt Zanzibar in Tanzania in 2015, which brought the total number of Hyatt-branded hotels in Africa to six.

Hyatt Regency Algiers Airport will be part of a wider airport expansion in one of North Africa´s largest cities. The 326-room hotel will be situated directly opposite the airport´s new terminal and will be the only terminal-linked hotel.

Ideally located at the entry to the airport, Hyatt Regency Algiers Airport will offer guests a one-stop experience, designed with everything under one roof.

Société d´Investissement Hôtelière EPE SPA has developed numerous internationally branded hotels throughout the country.

Hyatt Hotels Corporation, headquartered in Chicago, is a leading global hospitality company with a portfolio of 13 premier brands.
