The Shay, a “destination by Hyatt” hotel, opens in Los Angeles

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced the opening of The Shay, a Destination by Hyatt hotel and the brand’s first urban hotel in Southern California, in the Culver City district of Los Angeles.

The property aims to be a “central hub for creative camaraderie”, including loft-like accommodations with luxurious amenities, a sprawling campus with inspiring indoor-outdoor spaces to connect and collaborate during meetings, weddings and events, and an array of community partners that seamlessly blend both guests’ and locals’ experiences.

The Shay’s urban interior boasts details like leather-wrapped handrails, patinated metals and native hardwoods that allude to Culver City’s industrious past. Larger spaces such as the lobby, courtyard and roof deck comprise a series of intimate nooks, dens and parlors that seamlessly transition from work to play. A property-wide art collection includes 35 locally commissioned murals, textiles, installations and portraits, each accompanied by a unique QR code that invites visitors to learn more about the artist.

“The Shay is the first hotel in Culver City to celebrate the area’s growing creative community while fully embracing its rich history,” says Ryan Parker, general manager of The Shay. “As an anchor to the Arts District, which encompasses art galleries, coffee bars, trending fitness studios and the re-imagined landmark Helms Bakery building with design boutiques and specialty restaurants, The Shay offers guests a distinct sense of place that honors old and new.”

All accommodations feature oversized windows, workstations, curated artwork and modern décor that mirror the city’s resourceful spirit. Select suites offer luxuries like wet bars, patios, large soaking tubs, generous living spaces and separate work areas.

Food & Beverage Offerings

The Shay plays host to two onsite culinary concepts by Michelin-starred chef Danny Grant’s What If Syndicate group, including etta, a wood-fired eatery with indoor-outdoor seating on the ground floor, and Celestina, a high-energy Mexican-inspired restaurant and cocktail bar on the roof deck. What If Syndicate also produces the culinary experiences for meetings, weddings and events.

The Shay – Guestroom

The Shay boasts Culver City’s first curated rooftop pool experience, offering pop-up events including music shows, comedy sets and yoga classes; a versatile outdoor courtyard that leads into a modern ballroom; and an inviting lobby space featuring a cocktail bar and game room outfitted with eclectic seating and contemporary local art.

In celebration of its opening, The Shay is offering 50% off all suites and 15% off all standard room rates through the end of the year, and a Bed & Breakfast promotion that includes a full American breakfast for two and late 2:00 pm checkout.
