Hyatt Hotels Canadian Expansion
Hyatt Expected to Triple its Canadian Properties by 2022
Hyatt recently announced that more than 20 new hotels are expected to open in Canada by the end of 2022, tripling the global hospitality brand’s presence in the country. The newly announced properties include three hotels in the heart of downtown Niagara Falls, expected to open in 2022: a dual-branded Hyatt Centric Niagara Falls and Hyatt Regency Niagara Falls project, with 150 guestrooms and 350 guestrooms, respectively, and the 200-room Hyatt Place Niagara Falls.
This announcement includes properties that will mark the first Hyatt House and Hyatt Centric hotels in Canada and the first Hyatt hotels in the Niagara Falls market, as well as hotels across its other full service and select service brands including Hyatt Regency, Park Hyatt, Andaz and Hyatt Place.
“Hyatt’s brand presence in Canada continues to steadily increase, as we successfully implement our strategy of growing with intent,” said Scott Richer, Hyatt’s regional vice president of development for Canada. “We continue to see growth opportunities in the region and are confident in the direction and future of Hyatt – across all brands.”
With nearly 15 million visitors per year, Niagara Falls is considered one of the busiest tourist destinations in the world. Located in the heart of downtown Niagara Falls, the dual-branded new-build Hyatt Centric and Hyatt Regency project in Niagara Falls will be situated immediately opposite the Fallsview Casino, The Skylon Tower and the 5,000-seat performing arts center that is currently under construction. The properties are owned and will be operated by Fallsview Group, and are slated to open in 2022.
Slated to open in 2022, the Hyatt Place Niagara Falls will be connected to the Scotiabank Convention Center and proximate to the tourist district of Clifton Hill and numerous attractions and entertainment facilities nearby.
Visitors come from around the world to experience the spectacular Niagara Falls, but savvy meetings planners count on Niagara to deliver more than natural wonders. Easy to access via nearby Toronto, Niagara boasts a high tech convention centre, a myriad of activities and attractions to entertain delegates before and after meetings, and one of the most acclaimed culinary and wine regions in Canada just beyond the conference room doors.
