Hyatt Corporation’s Franchise Division Bestows Award on New Hotel

LOS ANGELES, Calif. (October 8, 2018) – Hyatt Corporation’s Franchise Division announces that it has named Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) Hotel of the Year. Each year, only one Hyatt property across the Americas is selected for this prestigious award. The new and only Hyatt Regency in Los Angeles has been winning guests over since it opened in 2017 and is a leading example of a now global trend toward airport hotels going upscale.

Hyatt Corporation indicated that the following key performance indicators factored into Hyatt Regency LAX’s distinction:

  • The hotel led the LAX market for highest demand for accommodations and services

  • The hotel is a leader in the brand in Guest Satisfaction Scores, due to the exceptional service, and the guest’s recognition of the hotel’s superior offerings, amenities and customer experience. Satisfied guests are offering comments, such as: “When I am traveling to and from LAX I prefer to stay at this hotel. The staff is the reason I keep coming back, from the moment I check in to the time I leave. The restaurant and bar area is casual but sophisticated. If you get a chance to work out there the workout room is second to none and a great view of the airport… Overall a very nice hotel that will always be my first choice at LAX.”

  • The hotel was awarded $100,000 federal grant for ‘Upskilling’ its associates in 2017, including ESL and professional etiquette training

  • The hotel ranks in the top one-third of TripAdvisor’s 356 hotels in Los Angeles, and above many luxury and upscale hotels in the city, again confirming the hotel’s exceptional guest experience

  • A number of recent and high-profile media have featured the hotel as a food & beverage innovator as well an outstanding example of the new wave of airport hotels.”

Gino Caliendo, general manager, says “We are humbled and excited about receiving this awesome recognition. We feel it is truly about our team’s commitment to create genuine connections with our guests, community and the exceptional colleagues who make this all happen. I feel so blessed to be working alongside such a dedicated, hardworking and spirited group of individuals who know how to have fun. We believe that at the core of who we are is the foundation of caring for people so they can be their best.”
