Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced Wednesday that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a contract with Jost Hurler Beteiligungs-und Verwaltungsgesellschaft mbH & Co. KG, a family-owned company based in Munich, for an Andaz hotel in Munich.
The first Andaz-branded hotel in Germany, Andaz Munich will join hotels currently located in cities including London, New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai, and soon, Tokyo.
Expected to open in 2017, Andaz Munich will make its mark in the Bavarian capital, increasing the brand’s presence in Europe to three hotels.
The 274-room hotel will be developed in central Munich in a cultural district known as Schwabinger Tor.
Situated between Leopoldstrasse and Berlinerstrasse, Andaz Munich will be part of a mixed use site, which will include newly constructed upscale residential apartments, retail shops, offices, theaters, and restaurants.
Andaz Munich will collaborate with local artists, musicians, designers, and other cultural influencers to deliver events and programs on themes unique to its location in central Munich.
The Andaz Salon, the brand’s signature cultural program, features interactive, on-property and virtual events conceived to support and nurture each hotel’s community of emerging talent.
