East Bay Township planning commissioners approved plans for a new 74-foot, 143-unit extended-stay Hyatt House hotel to be built on US-31 between the Hampton Inn and Traverse City State Park in Traverse City Michigan. Applicant Chris Abbo and his development partners received site plan approval to build a 74-foot, five-story Hyatt House hotel at 1050 US-31 North. The Hyatt House brand is a residentially-inspired hotel experience offering spacious, apartment-style rooms and suites with full kitchens. The properties include amenities such as 24-hour workout rooms, laundry facilities, and convenience markets; outdoor commons areas; free breakfast with omelet bars; and H Bar, an on-site lounge. Extended-stay rates and special amenities are offered to guests staying three weeks or more. The Hyatt House will have both indoor and outdoor pools, a coffee shop, and a 4,153-square-foot restaurant with outdoor seating open to the public. The 143 rooms planned in the 30,000 square-foot building will include 80 king and 63 queen units divided across 63 studio, 54 den, and 26 one-bedroom configurations.
