Anyone wanting to stay a night, or a few, in the new Hyatt Place Hotel on track to open this spring in downtown Sumter can now reserve a room.

While still on track to open in mid-April, the corporate arm of Hyatt will make the earliest day possible to book a room sooner and sooner as completion nears, said Cheryl Baker, general manager. Right now, rooms can be booked for as early as July 9.

Groups can be booked for sooner than that, many of which already have claimed rooms for events such as weddings, family reunions, association groups and church group events and retreats, Baker said.

"We're ready," she said excitedly about the progress as mid-April approaches.

The hotel will be more than the 93-room, four-story place to stay.

A food and beverage bistro with cooked-to-order menu items will be available to hotel guests and to the public, adding another new restaurant to Sumter's Main Street scene.

Baker said the menu will be "things that don't take very long to make," such as burgers, quesadillas, spinach and chicken salads, etc.

Hotel employees will also be selling fresh, made-to-order Starbucks coffee and hot cookies, which will be made daily, to guests and the public.
