- May 07, 2015
Hyatt Hotels Corp., FFC Capital Corp. and Crescent Hotels & Resorts have announced the opening of a new Hyatt Place hotel next to The Meadows Casino in Washington, PA.
Named Hyatt Place Pittsburgh South/Meadows Racetrack & Casino, the 155-key property provides direct access to the 24-hour casino via an enclosed pedestrian bridge. Amenities include hotel-wide complimentary Wi-Fi, a fitness center with indoor swimming pool, as well as 1,800 square feet of flexible, high-tech meeting space. The hotel’s signature bar, Parlay Lounge, offers specialty drinks, local brews, an extensive menu, along with live music and eleven 55-inch TVs for watching sporting events. The venue also features an outdoor patio with three 65-inch TVs and fire pit.
Guests can also enjoy a variety of entertainment options available at the adjacent Meadows Racetrack and Casino. These include live harness racing 208 days of the year, a full simulcast schedule from premier tracks across the country, a 24-lane bowling alley suitable for all ages and live shows on weekends.
“With the convenience of having access to the 24-hour casino, as well the casual atmosphere and practical amenities offered by the Hyatt Place brand, we are confident that this hotel will be a refreshing new choice for business and leisure travelers visiting Washington County,” Gabriel Perez, the property’s general manager, said in a news release.
The hotel is the first Hyatt Place branded lodging facility in Washington County. It is located just six miles away from Southpointe Industrial Park, a community of some of the largest natural gas producers and energy corporations, and eight miles from both CONSOL Energy Park, a multipurpose baseball stadium, and Lindenwood Golf Course.
Last spring, Gaming and Leisure Properties, Inc. paid $465 million to acquire the Meadows Racetrack and Casino from Las Vegas-based Cannery Casino Resorts, L.L.C.
