June 9, 2017 – The Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands continue their growth trajectory in key markets with the opening of 19 new hotels as of June 7, 2017. A number of these recent openings represent significant milestones for the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands as hotels continue to open in urban, lifestyle and university locations.
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-Westmarks 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.”
The Hyatt Place brand continues to be a strategic fit for campus environments as it designed for people living a multitasking lifestyle – from visiting parents and sports teams to guest lecturers and prospective students, all guests can appreciate the casual hospitality, practical amenities and seamless service offered at Hyatt Place hotels. The recent openings of Hyatt Place Blacksburg/University, located near Virginia Tech, Hyatt Place Chapel Hill/Southern Village, located near the University of North Carolina (UNC), Hyatt Place Madison/Verona, located near University of Wisconsin-Madison, and Hyatt Place State College, located near Pennsylvania State University, meet a strong demand and desire for quality, functional hotels near college campuses.
“University markets present us with a great opportunity as Hyatt expands both the Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands in communities like Virginia Tech, UNC and Penn State,” said Julienne Smith, senior vice president of development for Hyatt Place and Hyatt House in North America. “These hotels are valued additions to the expanding roster of Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotels on or near college campuses, and we look forward to introducing these innovative brands to more viable locations where our loyal guests are traveling.”
