AUSTIN, Texas – On June 21, 2017, the Hyatt Place Austin Airport celebrated its grand opening with live music, a ribbon cutting and a historically re-enacted sabre salute to the hotel’s giant Texas flag.
The Hyatt Place Austin Airport, located at 9532 Spirit of Austin Lane, is on the Austin-Bergstrom International Airport campus and conveniently close to the airport’s Barbara Jordan Terminal. With easy access to the main roadway to the terminal (Presidential Blvd.) the four-story, 77,000 square foot hotel has 139 suites and features a café and dining area, meeting rooms, state of the art fitness center and resort style pool.
Its Texas-sized state flag (15’x25’) atop a 60’ flagpole is an airport landmark. The hotel’s grand opening featured a flag dedication ceremony complete with a sabre salute from soldiers in Republic of Texas era dress. This commemorative flag is a joint project between Journeyman Construction (general contractor), JCI Hospitality LLC (developer and operator) and Celebrate Texas (non-profit organization). At its base, a granite monument in dedication of Jay Johnson and Charlie Yates, founding members of Celebrate Texas, can be found.
In addition to its comfortable amenities and convenient location, Hyatt Place Austin Airport is doing its part to further a green initiative with its LEED Silver Certification, Austin Energy Green Building Two Star Rating, and four electric vehicle charging stations.
