CHICAGO — Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the broader expansion of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in North America. The brand added two new hotels in 2017 — Holston House in Nashville, Tenn., and Spirit Ridge resort in Osoyoos, B.C. — and is expected to add two more hotels this spring — the newly built Eliza Jane hotel in New Orleans and The Bellevue Hotel in Philadelphia. These four new hotels will nearly double the brand’s current portfolio.
“We are thrilled to continue growing The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand with these new North-American properties,” says Sandra Cordova Micek, senior vice-president, Global Brands for Hyatt. “Whether it’s a captivating past, an exclusive destination or world-class architecture and design, each of the new properties joining The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand will maintain their distinct character and the freedom to be unique, giving the modern traveler even more ways to enjoy one-of-a-kind choices when they travel.”
Situated 250 miles east of Vancouver in Osoyoos, B.C., Spirit Ridge joined The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in December 2017. Although just 10 years old, the resort peacefully shares land that has been home of the Osoyoos Indian Band for thousands of years. Rich in culture and historical relevance, the resort’s design embraces the Okanagan First-Nations people and celebrates their deep spiritual connection to natural surroundings. The adobe-style resort provides a full range of services and amenities, including a 7,000-sq.-ft. conference center, 226 suites and villas with fully equipped kitchens and private terraces, private beach access to the nearby Lake Osoyoos, three food-and-beverage experiences, several pools with hot tubs and private cabanas.
Spirit Ridge is undergoing a $5-million renovation to enhance the guest experience and will remain open while upgrades are taking place. All guest suites, public areas, swimming pools, meeting rooms, restaurants and fitness centers will be refreshed. The first phase of renovations is anticipated to be completed by spring 2018. All renovations will be an authentic representation of the South Okanagan Valley and the sacred land on which it sits. spiritridge.hyatt.com
