Hyatt has announced plans for its first Hyatt-branded hotel in Estonia, signing an agreement with ESTMA HPT OU to open a Hyatt Place property in early 2023 in Tallinn.

Hyatt Place Tallinn will be located near the Old City Harbour, one of the busiest passenger ports in Europe, and close to the city’s Old Town – a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The surrounding neighbourhood of the planned site is also set to undergo a revitalisation, which will see the former sports and cultural venue Linnahall converted into a concert hall and conference centre.

The 168-room property will feature a Zoom restaurant and lobby bar, a fitness centre and flexible event spaces.

Takuya Aoyama, vice president of development for Europe and Africa at Hyatt, commented on the news:

“We are thrilled to announce plans for the first Hyatt-branded hotel in the Baltics as we continue to prioritize thoughtful growth in locations that matter most to our guests, World of Hyatt members, customers and owners.

“Hyatt Place Tallinn will cater to the growing leisure and business demand in Estonia and deliver seamless experiences to help guests get the most out of their stay.”

Galina Ignatenko, owner of ESTMA HPT OU, added:

“We look forward to collaborating with Hyatt on Hyatt Place Tallinn. As the largest city and the capital of Estonia, Tallinn has established itself as a dynamic and entrepreneurial destination for travelers across Europe, making it a natural fit for the Hyatt Place brand.”

Hyatt Place Tallinn will join the growing Hyatt Place portfolio in Europe, which currently includes Hyatt Place London Heathrow airport. Hyatt Place West London Hayes, Hyatt Place Amsterdam Airport, Hyatt Place Frankfurt Airport, Hyatt Place Yerevan and Hyatt Place Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport. The group is also developing Hyatt Place properties in European destinations such as Cannes, Rouen, Krakow, Zurich and London.
