CHICAGO — Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced global growth plans for its independent collection brands, including recent openings and development plans through 2025.
“With each new hotel opening under Hyatt’s three independent collection brands, we are encouraging unique discovery of the local culture or history of the hotel’s location, truly illustrating the spirit of these three distinct brands,” says Katie Johnson, global brand leader, Independent Collection, Hyatt. “Learning from our guests, members and customers is key to Hyatt. Each of these hotels accelerates our efforts to expand our independent collections in markets that reach travellers and surprise locals with captivating experiences.”
Hyatt’s independent collection brands encompass The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, Destination by Hyatt and JdV by Hyatt brands, which are designed to offer one-of-a-kind guest experiences. The recently re-branded collection of JdV by Hyatt hotels (formerly Joie de Vivre) is a vibrant, independent group of hotels that are reflections of the urban neighborhoods they call home.
Planned new hotel openings in 2021 across Hyatt’s independent collection of brands include properties in key markets across the globe, notably the first JdV by Hyatt hotels in Canada and Sweden. Two Ontario hotels are slated to join the JdV by Hyatt brand in 2021 — The Walper (Kitchener, Ont.) and The Anndore House (Toronto).
With a deep belief in the power of these independent collection brands, Hyatt plans to add JdV by Hyatt and Destination by Hyatt hotels in more locations that matter most to guests and members. By 2025, Hyatt’s collection brands expect to welcome several new properties, including The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand’s entry into Japan, Thailand and Mexico.
