Hyatt to expand Hyatt House and Hyatt Place
Chicago – 9 June 2017 –
The Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands continue their growth trajectory in key markets with the opening of 19 new hotels. The Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands are rooted in extensive consumer research indicating that guests seek stylish, comfortable, seamless experiences that accommodate their lifestyles and familiar routines. To embody this, the two brands offer casual hospitality and purposeful service in a smartly designed, high-tech and contemporary environment.
The Hyatt Place brand introduced its first hotel in Australia with the opening of Hyatt Place Melbourne, Essendon Fields, which is located in the city’s Central Business District. Additionally, the opening of the Hyatt Place Edmonton-West marks the second Hyatt Place hotel opening in Canada. The Hyatt House brand celebrated several milestones with the openings of Hyatt House Anchorage, the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Alaska; Hyatt House New York/Chelsea, the first Hyatt House hotel to open in New York City; and Hyatt House Virginia Beach/Oceanfront, the first oceanfront Hyatt House hotel.
“We expect to open more than 50 Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels in 2017, which is a testament to our commitment to strategic growth for these brands throughout the world,” said Steve Haggerty, Hyatt’s global head of capital strategy, franchising and select service. “We are proud that Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels continue to open in markets where our guests are traveling, further demonstrating the overall strength and resonance of the brands with developers, owners and guests.”
Combined, there are more than 350 Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels open in more than 200 cities around the world, building a network that supports both corporate customers and transient guests.
