The only Park Hyatt in Germany was going to be renamed. The future of this property is now known. This is something that interests me as a World of Hyatt Globalist and as a person with a strong connection to Germany.
The Park Hyatt Hamburg will no longer be a Hyatt- branded property after December 31, 2022. Those who have reservations through the end of the year will be able to earn and redeem points. The hotel can't be booked after that.
I had a good stay at the hotel back in 2020. The hotel is priced in line with other Park Hyatts. One of the only Park Hyatts with a club lounge is the hotel. The property dates back to 1912 and is located in the Levantehaus building.
We didn't know what would happen to the property. It didn't seem like there was a way to tear it down or convert it to an apartment building so I assumed it would be turned into another hotel. This is a historical building.
Plans for the property have been made public. The property is expected to be reopened as the Conrad Hamburg in 2024. There will be a Conrad property in Germany.
There are 25 suites and 32 residential suites at the Conrad Hamburger. A restaurant, bar, spa, gym, and pool will be part of the hotel.
The new name is interesting to me. Hyatt doesn't have a lot of brand recognition in Europe and its footprint in Germany is small. Thanks to the acquisition of Linder Hotels, Hyatt's situation in Germany is beginning to improve.
There isn't much in the way of luxury properties in Germany, except for the Waldorf-Ascended Berlin. Maybe that shows that Germany has a limited number of high end properties. I am happy to see that this property will remain a points hotel and undergo a full renovation.
The Park Hyatt Hamburg will no longer be affiliated with Hyatt at the beginning of the next decade. When the hotel undergoes a full renovation, it will reopen as the Conrad Hamburger in 2024. I am happy that the hotel is still a points hotel and not affiliated with Hyatt.
What do you think of the new name of the hotel?
