Hyatt plans to open nearly 200 new hotels in Americas by 2022

Hyatt Hotels Corp. plans to grow its Americas brand portfolio by more than 50 hotels in 2020. By 2022, the company expects to have opened nearly 200 new hotels in the region, growing its brand presence there 33 percent.

The company’s Hyatt Place and Hyatt House select-service brands will lead this growth, with the two brands accounting for more than 100 of the planned openings across North and South America through 2022. The Hyatt House brand currently has more than 40 executed contracts in the United States and six in Canada. Hyatt Place has more than 65 in the U.S., 14 in Canada and one in Costa Rica.

The company’s newer brands also have projects planned, including an Alila hotel slated to open in California in early 2021; four Destination Hotels in the U.S., all scheduled to open this year; three Joie de Vivre hotels, also all slated for 2020; and nine Thompson Hotels, including the newly opened Thompson Washington D.C.

“Hyatt remains focused on thoughtfully growing our full-service and select-service portfolio of brands in the Americas region—and growing and running our core hotel business: the development, management and franchising of full-service and select-service hotels, while being best-in-class,” Pete Sears, Hyatt’s Americas group president, said in a statement. “Hyatt’s Americas growth through 2022 further signals incredible strength in our brand among owners, customers and guests across the largest region within Hyatt’s global portfolio.”

Hyatt Hotels Corp. currently has 585 hotels open in the Americas. As of Sept. 30, it had more than 875 properties worldwide.
