As times are still tough for many students throughout the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the last thing many want to be faced with is the possibility of contracting the virus. 

Hyatt Place in downtown Indianapolis is opening its hotel to IUPUI students who live on or near campus and need to self-isolate if their roommate happens to test positive for COVID-19. 

In addition to self isolating from a possible coronavirus exposure, students also have the option to stay at the Hyatt House for the entirety of the semester. 

The Hyatt Place hotel franchise successfully housed many students at their Bloomington location throughout the fall semester for students who wanted flexibility in their leasing, or were relocated from their current living situation. After seeing this success, they wanted to extend that same housing opportunity for IUPUI students in Indianapolis. 

Ben Weatherhead, Assistant Director of Sales at the Hyatt Place in Indianapolis, said that this is an ideal opportunity for students who may not have the luxury of returning home to isolate. 

“During times like these it is hard for students who live out of state, or outside of the normal commute time to go home and quarantine,” Weatherhead said. 

He also went on to say how it is also not the best option for students who may have contracted the virus, to return home and quarantine around other loved ones. Potentially passing on the virus to them as well.

The cost for students is $69 a night for a one bedroom suite, and $89 a night for a two bedroom suite. For a full semester at Hyatt Place, the cost is $8,250 for a one bedroom suite, and $9,750 for a two bed suite. 

Suites are fully equipped with furniture, appliances, kitchen utensils, free wireless internet, a Smart TV to log into various streaming services, maid service upon request, and free complimentary breakfast. 

This Hyatt Place location is also “Hyatt’s Global Care and Cleanliness Commitment” certified. Meaning they adhere to the industry’s top standards for cleanliness and sanitation. 

“We have at least one person on property trained as Hygiene Manager, who will be responsible for their hotel adhering to new operational guidance and protocols,” Weatherhead said. 

These and many other measures have been taken to ensure guests feel safe and comfortable staying there for a prolonged period of time. 

Hyatt Place in Indianapolis is located at 130 S Pennsylvania Street, which is less than two miles away from campus. 

Students still looking for housing options for next semester may want to consider the Hyatt Place as another option if their housing situation happens to fluctuate throughout the semester.
