Two years after opening a Hyatt Place hotel, Dallas-Fort Worth Airport is looking to add another Hyatt brand in its Southgate Plaza development.

Planned is a six-story, 125-suites Hyatt House, Hyatt's extended stay brand, said David Magaña, airport spokesman. The hotel, which will be the fourth at the airport, will target visitors staying long-term, he said.

In March 2016, the airport opened a 137-room Hyatt Place adjacent to the airport's headquarters building and near the airport's south entrance.

Project costs for the Hyatt House were not available, but Magaña said the hotel is likely to generate about $100,000 annually in hotel occupancy tax revenue for Fort Worth and about $178,000 for Dallas.

The hotel is being done to meet demand, but also to offer a different product at a different price point, Magana said.

The hotel will join the 298-room Grand Hyatt at Terminal D, which opened in 2005, and the 600-room Hyatt Regency at Terminal C. That hotel opened in 1974 at the same time as the airport, but under a different name. It has since been refurbished a few times.

The airport is seeking approval from the Fort Worth and Dallas City councils for the Hyatt House project, and that should be completed in April, Magaña said.

The hotel should open in mid-2020, following a six-month design process and about 18 months of construction, he said.

It will be off International Park at Rental Car Drive, in the 32-acre Southgate Plaza development.
