HOUSTON, February 1, 2012
—Officials with Davidson Hotels & Resorts, one of the nation’s largest independent hotel management companies, and Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) today announced the opening of the fifth Hyatt hotel in Houston, the 335-room Hyatt North Houston.  The hotel, formerly known as the Crowne Plaza Houston North-Greenspoint, is operated by Davidson under a franchise agreement with an affiliate of Hyatt Hotels Corporation.

“Having recently completed a major, multi-million dollar renovation, Hyatt North Houston is well positioned as a premier hotel catering to the needs of Houston area visitors,” said Patrick Lupsha, Davidson’s chief operating officer.  “We look forward to leveraging the tremendous tools Hyatt has to offer.  The strengths of the brand, when combined with our focus on creating tremendous guest experiences, will provide an unrivaled choice for business, group and leisure travelers in North Houston.”

Sam Houston Parkway East in the heart of North Houston near numerous corporate headquarters and retail offerings, George Bush Intercontinental Airport, and the Greenspoint business district, Hyatt North Houston features such amenities as a state-of-the-art fitness facility, tropical style outdoor swimming pool and spa, business center and gift shop.  Additionally, the property provides 27,000 square feet of meeting space and an all-day American cuisine restaurant, Grill 425.

The eight-story Hyatt North Houston is the fifth full-service Hyatt managed by Davidson Hotels & Resorts (with a sixth property recently announced), making Davidson the largest independent operator of full-service Hyatt hotels in the industry.

“Houston is an increasingly popular destination for business and leisure travelers,” said Chuck Floyd, chief operating officer, North American operations, Hyatt Hotels Corporation.   “Hyatt North Houston will provide the level of service and authentic hospitality that Hyatt guests have come to expect.”
