Recently, I’ve been checking rates at some of the lower category Hyatt properties within easy reach of Los Angeles and London (I’m contemplating a year-end mattress run) and a couple of weeks ago, I noticed that, rather mysteriously, the Hyatt Place West London Hayes wasn’t offering any rates past the end of October.

At the time, there was nothing on the Hyatt website to explain what was going on but having just searched for rates again, it looks like the website has been updated and an explanation posted.

Apparently, the property is closing as of 31 October 2022 and will no longer be operating as a hotel.

I doubt whether this will be seen as a big loss by Hyatt or anyone who enjoys staying at Hyatt properties as from what I saw when I visited in February last year, the location is poor (it’s not anywhere near what any local would call “London” and it’s not particularly near to Heathrow), the surrounding area is far from desirable, the cleaning standards (at the time) were not the best, and the rooms were looking tired and worn. It didn’t feel like a Hyatt.

Still, this was one of the cheapest Hyatt properties in the UK and the cheapest Hyatt property in the London area so when it came to mattress runs, it certainly had its uses. From that point of view alone, I’m sad to see its demise.

Bottom line

In a little bit over a month’s time, the Hyatt Place West London Hayes will be closing its doors and, apparently, closing down as a hotel entirely. As a place to stay, I doubt that it will be missed, but when viewed as somewhere to book a cheap mattress run I suspect I’m not going to be the only one wishing that it could have somehow kept its doors open.

  1. I ended up outside this hotel a couple of weeks ago by mistake, having programmed the wrong Hyatt Place into my sat nav (should have been the one at LHR, nearby) and was surprised at its non-descript surroundings. It seemed something of an oasis. I’m wonder if it”ll be used to house asylum seekers, as per a few Heathrow hotels.

  2. Hyatt mattress run ….I know you mentioned Los Angeles and London but Austin,Texas Hyatt place on many dates in November and December are 3500 points a night and near the airport and there is also a bus right outside the hotel that takes you into center of Austin in 15 minutes….just sayin
