Hyatt Hotels recently announced plans to expand its portfolio in Canada. Hyatt Place and Hyatt House will see more of their branded properties springing up in the Great White North in the coming years. We find out more.
Hyatt doubles brand presence in Canada
Hyatt announced at the beginning of June that they are planning on doubling their brand presence in Canada. Two of the group’s brands, Hyatt Place and Hyatt House, will be expanding further into the Canadian market, with 12 new properties planned to open by 2020 across both brands. These 12 hotels would bring Hyatt’s brands to a total of 21 hotels in Canada by 2020. Management and franchise agreements have been signed for nine Hyatt Place hotels and three Hyatt House hotels. Both brands are designed to appeal to the business traveler, whose numbers in Canada are looking healthy, and give Hyatt good reason to be confident that these select-service hotels will perform well in the region. Compared to full-service hotels, select service hotels are more economical, and this type of property can be grown via franchising and conversion of existing Hyatt properties.
Scott Richer, Hyatt’s vice president of real estate and development for Canada, addressed the plans, saying, “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. There is a 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. Today’s 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.”
