CHICAGO–Apr. 10, 2013–?Hyatt Hotels Corporation?(NYSE: H) and Innisfree Hotels today announce the opening of?Hyatt Place Pensacola Airport, a refreshing hotel option for business and leisure travelers alike offering forward-thinking, around-the-clock amenities and modern design.

The hotel opening marks the 18th?Hyatt Place?hotel in the state, and it is the first hotel to bring a new level of amenities to the airport.
[quote]?Having this premier hotel at our international airport is a distinct advantage for our business and leisure travelers,? said Airport Director Greg Donovan. ?Our customers now have the option of staying overnight right on the airport campus with top-notch restaurants and retail outlets nearby. Having such amenities is exclusive to Pensacola International as no other airport in the region has the convenience of an on-site hotel or the high levels of service for which Hyatt is known.?
?I?m excited about the economic impact of this development,? said Pensacola Mayor Ashton Hayward. ?The beautiful new Hyatt Place hotel is a great addition to Pensacola and adds even more value for travelers choosing Pensacola International Airport. I want to thank InnisfreeHotels and their partners for working to create new jobs and new revenue for our city.?[/quote]

Exceptional landscaping and design concepts extend to the exterior of the hotel and adjacent commercial properties that Innisfree Hotels is developing alongside the hotel property. ?Interest in the commercial /office spaces has increased during the construction of the hotel,? noted Chism. Space is still available for two restaurants, a bank with drive through, a Class A office building, and a smaller office building.
This broader development project will generate non-airline revenue for the Airport through lease fees, as well as bring in local option sales taxes for the City of Pensacola. It will also create payroll revenues through the addition of new jobs to the local economy.
