Hyatt is planning to expand the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brand footprint in Canada with the signing of management and franchise agreements by a Hyatt affiliate for nine Hyatt Place hotels and three Hyatt House hotels.
Currently there are nine Hyatt-branded hotels open in Canada, and the expected openings of these 12 Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels would increase Hyatt’s brand presence in the region to 21 hotels within the next few years.
Scott Richer, Hyatt’s vice president of real estate and development for Canada, said of the expansion: “We believe the new agreements being announced today, along with the previously announced properties under development, demonstrate growing confidence among owners and developers in the strength of the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels in Canada.”
Richer noted that: “There is tremendous growth opportunity in this region – coming off the heels of its 150th anniversary, Canada continues to see strong levels of leisure travel, as well as an increase in corporate travel.”
And Richer added that the expansion announcement is “a testament to the global appeal of Hyatt’s select service portfolio as it continues to expand worldwide and offer more choices to our guests.”
