SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Twenty Four Seven Hotels, a third-party hospitality management company for premium-branded, select-service and lifestyle hotel segments in the western U.S., announced the grand opening of the 128-room Hyatt House Sacramento/Midtown. The adaptive reuse project, owned and developed by Hume Development, Inc., repurposed the former Eastern Star Hall, which is located in the heart of Sacramento’s art, music and cultural scene.
“The Hyatt House Sacramento/Midtown is the perfect marriage of the classic and the contemporary, providing the latest amenities and services in a setting that draws heavily from its nearly century-old history to provide a uniquely Sacramento experience,” said Amanda Hawkins-Vogel, chief operating officer for Twenty Four Seven Hotels. “This hotel is an extension of our presence in Northern California and marks our first opening this year with two more to come in 2023. As the newest hospitality offering in the city, we expect the Hyatt House Sacramento to quickly take its rightful place as the segment and market leader for business and leisure travelers.”
Situated at 2719 K Street in the Sutter District, the pet-and family-friendly hotel is near Capital Mall, Crocker Art Museum and the Old Sacramento Waterfront. Guest rooms are designed to mimic studio apartments, with kitchens in 87 rooms, ideal for extended stays. The Hyatt House also provides four suites with separate bedrooms, two of which are specialty owner suites featuring high ceilings and Restoration Hardware fixtures. Hotel amenities include complimentary Wi-Fi, 24/7 fitness center, guest laundry, business center and 700 square feet of flexible meeting space.
Guests can grab a quick snack at the Hyatt House’s grab-n-go sundry shop or a full morning meal at the complimentary breakfast bar. Additionally, guests and locals may dine at the Star Lounge, a full-service restaurant and bar, located on the hotel’s third floor. Star Lounge continues the tradition of being a gathering place, offering happy hour, an inventive craft cocktail menu and dinner featuring small plates, burgers and steaks. The lounge is led by Chef Graham Forbes, formerly the chef de cuisine at the Kimpton Sawyer Hotel.
The Romanesque Revival-style building first opened in 1928 as a Masonic women’s meeting place and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. While keeping the major architectural features of the historic building intact, the renovation included the redevelopment of five floors within the original structure that includes the lobby, restaurant, fitness center and meeting space, as well as the addition of a new three-story annex that includes additional hotel rooms. The hotel’s history is incorporated throughout the building by using the original front doors, tables, plaster, brick and a repurposed pulpit as the host’s stand.
