As the first Hyatt Place hotel in Honduras, the hotel commissioned a special artwork from renowned Honduran artist Santos Arzu Quioto. The result is an abstract work defined by the artist as “Cartography of Tegucigalpa,” and it reflects the colors and textures of the city of Tegucigalpa or “Cerro de la Plata” (Silver Mountain) as described in Spanish. The artwork hangs as the focal piece in the hotel’s Gallery area.
Hyatt Place Tegucigalpa is part of Hyatt’s loyalty program, Hyatt Gold Passport. Guests can earn Hyatt Gold Passport points and redeem for free night awards without blackout dates and more at more 600 Hyatt locations worldwide.
