CHICAGO — Hyatt Hotels Corporation is positioned to double its brand footprint in Canada by the end of 2026, with more than 20 executed managed and franchised agreements across its distinct brands. As Hyatt continues to build industry-leading net rooms growth globally, this strategic and intentional growth in Canada reflects Hyatt’s focus on listening and developing in destinations that matter most to guests, World of Hyatt members and owners.
With nearly 20 hotels currently open in Canada, Hyatt expects to have an additional 23 hotels open and operating by the end of 2026. This significant expansion includes newly announced deals for luxury and lifestyle hotels including the second hotel in Canada within The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand. The hotel will be located in Ontario wine country and will join Spirit Ridge located in the Okanagan Valley wine country in B.C.
Other upcoming properties include the Hyatt Centric Winnipeg Downtown (2025), which is expected to be the second Hyatt Centric hotel in Canada. The lifestyle hotel, owned and operated by The Kothari Group, will offer 140 modern guestrooms and suites, approximately 1,200 sq. ft. of meeting space, a signature restaurant and bar and an open-concept lobby that will capture the local spirit and inspire guests to get out and explore. The Hyatt Centric Victoria – Old Town (2026) will be the first Hyatt branded hotel in Victoria and will join Hyatt’s growing Boundless Collection portfolio in Canada. The hotel, owned by Chard Development Ltd., will offer 135 guestrooms and suites and dynamic food-and-beverage options, including a restaurant, bar, lounge and coffee shop.
Additionally, Hyatt’s portfolio growth includes several new leisure and tertiary markets. By the end of 2026, Hyatt expects to have an established brand presence in several sought-after leisure markets that currently don’t have a Hyatt hotel, including Hyatt House Port Elgin (2026) and Hyatt Place Whitehorse (2025).
Lastly, Hyatt is expanding its brand footprint at some of Canada’s busiest airports with elevated experiences including free breakfast for guests and 24/7 convenience for both leisure and business travellers. New airport locations include:
• Hyatt Place Montreal – Trudeau International Airport (2025)
• Hyatt Place Toronto International Airport (2025)
• Hyatt House Toronto International Airport (2026)
• Hyatt Place Mississauga – Airport Corporate Centre (2024)
• Hyatt House Mississauga – Airport Corporate Centre (2024)
• Hyatt Place Vancouver International Airport (2026)
• Hyatt House Vancouver International Airport (2026)
“Hyatt is focused on accelerating brand growth and momentum in meaningful ways with several planned openings to meet every stay occasion in sought-after destinations coast-to-coast across Canada,” says Scott Richer, vice-president of Development and Owner Relations, Hyatt. “In 2022, Hyatt established a cross-functional corporate team dedicated to Canada, which enables us to continue growing Hyatt’s brand presence across the country with new and existing owners, to bring these — and more — exciting projects to life.”
