Hyatt says it expects to add nearly 200 properties to its Americas portfolio by 2022.

The group currently operates 585 hotels in the region, with this figure set to increase by 33 per cent in the next couple of years.

Of the expected openings, over 50 are scheduled to debut this year, with more than 140 following by 2022.

Hyatt said that the Americas region “continues to be a top priority for Hyatt and prospective developers due to business demand in several strong regional markets like California, Texas, New York, Canada and Mexico”.

Among the forthcoming properties include:

  • The 160-room Andaz Toronto, scheduled to open in 2021
  • The 591-room Grand Hyatt Nashville, scheduled to open this autumn
  • The 163-room Hyatt Centric 39th and 5th New York, opening in March
  • The 700-room Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City, slated for 2022
  • The 285-room Ambassador Chicago, a Joie de Vivre Hotel, opening in February
  • The 155-room Park Hyatt Mexico City, scheduled to open in 2021
  • The 219-room Thompson Dallas, scheduled to open this autumn

The group’s Hyatt House and Hyatt Place select service brands will drive much of the growth, with over 100 properties expected to open across North and South America by 2022.

Commenting on the news, Pete Sears, Americas group president, Hyatt, said:

“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.

“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.”
