Situated in one of the most dynamic and visited communities is the metro area, Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner Center is part of Macerich’s breakthrough Tysons Corner Center mixed-use expansion, which includes the award-winning Tysons Tower trophy office building, VITA luxury apartments (expected to open later this year) and new restaurants, all built around The Plaza, an elevated, 1.5 acre public space with its own stop on the Washington Metro Silver Line. The center of this new vertical urban hub is the 2 million-square-foot Tysons Corner Center mall, drawing millions of visitors each year.

The new hotel is a singular amenity for this growing urban community. “Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner Center is a wonderful complement to the world-class shopping, dining, office and residential elements we have brought together at this one-of-a-kind property,” said Tim Steffan, senior vice president, asset management and commercial leasing, Macerich. “Now more than ever, with the new hotel and all the other exciting elements of this successful expansion, Tysons Corner Center truly is an irreplaceable asset.”
