The Market will help satisfy cravings with grab-and-go snacks and meals, and at the hotel’s 24/7 state-of-the-art fitness center, guests can maintain their fitness routine while away from home with Technogym® and Precor® cardio equipment and free weights. Hyatt Grand Central New York will offer distinctive member benefits through the World of Hyatt program, where it will participate in award Category 5, allowing members to earn and redeem points that can be used toward free nights, upgrades, experiences and more.
“With demand for travel continuing to increase in New York City, we are thrilled to embark on a new chapter for our ideally situated hotel in the heart of the Big Apple,” said Peter Roth, Area Vice President & General Manager, Hyatt Grand Central New York. “Hyatt Grand Central New York will help connect guests and World of Hyatt members with iconic New York City just outside our doors.”

At this time, the plan is that the hotel would close for such redevelopment no earlier than 2023.
