Last month, I wrote a post about the brand new Grand Hyatt Athens that was set to open. At the time, there were still some unknowns like when the hotel would be open for reservations, prices, and the award category.
The New Grand Hyatt Athens Is Now Taking Reservations

As of this morning, we now know a few more things though Hyatt has not yet released what award category the hotel will be. Here are the details for the new Grand Hyatt Athens.
What To Know
The Grand Hyatt Athens is taking reservations right now and is due to open August 18, 2018. Prices start from just €103 per night. Here is the breakdown of room types and suites:
- Rooms with Single Beds, Queen Beds, and King Bed
- Deluxe Room
- Garden Room
- Acropolis View Rooms
- Junior Suite with 40-45 sq m (about 450 sq ft) – this suite will likely be the one that Globalists are upgraded to and that the upgrade certificate books into
- Grand Suite
- Grand Suite with Acropolis View
- Grand Executive Suite
Each room has a 55″ flat screen TV and the price for the rooms varies based on views and space. There are rooms with inner courtyard views (including that Junior Suite above).
There will be a Club Lounge at the Grand Hyatt Athens which means that Explorist members can apply a Club Lounge certificate to have the free breakfast and snacks throughout the day.
The Junior Suite is the base “room” that comes with Club Lounge for those without elite status. It starts at €300 per night. For the cheapest room with an Acropolis view, you will pay from €177 per night for that view (or about €70 more per night than a regular room).
Good Chain Option?
I am pleasantly surprised that the hotel has starting prices in peak travel season at just over €100 per night! This will likely be classified as a Category 4 (or maybe higher?) hotel so the cash price is definitely a great deal. In fact, that is about €50 less per night than the other Hyatt in Greece, the Hyatt Regency Thessaloniki.
If you have travel plans for Athens this summer or fall, definitely give the Grand Hyatt Athens a look! I will be staying there right after the opening and will have a review up immediately after that to help you know what to expect.
