The Grand Hyatt Bogota is the city's newest bet on luxury accommodations. The 5-star hotel, located in the Sarmiento Angulo Business City, is proud to offer the largest standard room in the capital (with 41 square meters), the largest spa in Colombia (with 3,000 square meters), a conference center with a large capacity and infrastructure, and if that was not enough, all rooms and atriums receive daylight, which provides warmth to the guests and guests.
"Opening a new Grand Hyatt and launching a project of this size in a city with the relevance that Bogotá has, is a very important step for our growth and positioning as a company in Latin America. We are very pleased to offer the Grand Hyatt Bogotá the ordinary in the extraordinary transforming and iconic experiences in the city. Bogotá will have a first-class accommodation and luxury service that will lead to a great life, "says Philippe Frey, general manager of Grand Hyatt Bogotá.
Taking into account the fact that Bogotá is one of the most successful cities when it comes to attracting tourists from events (for the sample: last year it was placed in the top 50 of the cities with the greatest success in attracting this type of tourists), the Grand Hyatt developed an interesting range of rooms to meet the demand of the congress groups. Andrea Gonzalez, marketing and communications manager at the Grand Hyatt, says that "371 rooms and 111 have two beds, which is important for these groups because they are actually 100 doubles."
The hotel offers 50 suites in different categories. The largest is the presidential, which has 200 square meters and is located on the top floor. This room can be connected to the exclusive heliport of the Grand Hyatt. There are also diplomatic, executive and corner suites.
In all rooms there is a Nespresso coffee machine, a kettle for the teas available and a minibar. In the bathrooms there are lotus products from the south and they all have a bath and shower separated from the toilet.
One of the most remarkable elements, besides the obvious comfort of the rooms, are the looms of Hechizoo. This workshop by the Colombian artist Jorge Lizarazo was in charge of weaving the hand with copper wires that decorate rooms and common areas of the hotel. According to the workshop, these pieces collect their warp images that maintain the memory of people or have a refined embroidery of independence. "
