Situated just off Linden Road in Sandton, Hyatt House looks to provide guests the service and convenience of hotel living with the casual comforts of home. Sandton has long been known for its arts, historic sites, prestigious shopping malls, and an eclectic ensemble of nightclubs, theatres, and restaurants, making it a popular destination for locals and tourists alike. Whilst hospitality has taken a severe knock during the global pandemic, many properties have managed to find their new groove, and the opening of additional hotels in greater Sandton is a vote of confidence for the area.
Opening a hotel in the current global economic climate is not for the faint-hearted, but I am resolute that in times of adversity there is a great opportunity. In South Africa’s case when it comes to business and leisure tourism – in what we hope will be a post-pandemic environment – this property will become an important symbol of renewed local and regional economic growth. Hyatt House Johannesburg in Sandton offers modern and spacious rooms and apartments allowing guests to feel right at home in one of South Africa’s most important economic centers.
