Edinburgh Marina will transform Granton Harbour
Hyatt Hotels has been chosen to operate a flagship venue at the Edinburgh Marina, a new development of homes and leisure activities at Granton Harbour.
The hotel will be the centrepiece of a 340-berth marina along with 1,850 homes, a retirement scheme, luxury residences, spa, retail, restaurant and conference facilities.
The spa and conference hotel will be the international hotelier’s first hotel in Scotland. It will have 187 rooms along with 98 serviced apartments.
Hyatt’s regional vice president development, Europe, Guido Fredrich, said: “I am thrilled that we will be opening our first hotel in Edinburgh, as part of the exciting new Edinburgh Marina development.
“The Edinburgh Marina is the perfect springboard for us to launch our brand in Scotland, opening a new era for the company and creating a great new tourism opportunity for Edinburgh.”
Kevin Fawcett, speaking for the developer, said: “Having received widespread interest from some of the world’s leading hoteliers we are delighted to have secured Hyatt to operate the hotel at Edinburgh Marina.
“Hyatt Regency’s commitment to world-class hospitality was at the forefront of our decision, with the hotel providing something totally unique for Edinburgh.”
