Hyatt Hotels Corporation today celebrates more than 200 open Hyatt Place locations across nine countries by kicking off digital promotions that invite guests to share their Hyatt Place experiences over a period of 200 hours. The celebration comes at a time of strong momentum for the brand, with more than 100 executed contracts for Hyatt Place hotels around the world across 21 countries, 15 of which are in new markets for the brand.
For 200 hours from August 18 through August 26, 2014, travelers will be encouraged to share photos that capture their Hyatt Place experiences via Instagram, Twitter and Foursquare/Swarm using #HyattPlace and #HPEntry. The photos will be aggregated on the brand’s digital See It Share It platform, and participants will have an opportunity to win one of 200 free night stays.
“Crossing the 200 hotel threshold means our colleagues are providing an award-winning Hyatt Place experience to more guests in more locations,” said Chris Walker, vice president, brand experience, Hyatt Place. “Guests continue to share their Hyatt Place stories and experiences across social platforms by posting photos of their time at our hotels. It’s been very rewarding to see how our guests enjoy signature Hyatt Place experiences whether it’s a mixed and matched breakfast selection from the a.m. Kitchen Skillet or putting their feet up and relaxing in the Cozy Corner. We love seeing their photos and natural affinity for the brand come to life on See It Share It.”
Global Growth and Momentum
The Hyatt Place brand’s growth and momentum is a testament to owners, developers, guests, and colleagues that continue to bring the brand to life and strengthen representation in the United States and around the world. With more than 200 Hyatt Place locations open in nine countries, the future is exciting as the brand’s base of executed contracts represents over 50 percent growth in the number of Hyatt Place hotels.
“We continue to build and cultivate strong relationships with owners, operators and developers around the world. With their support, we are on a terrific trajectory,” said John Cantele, senior vice president, select service for Hyatt. “The Hyatt Place brand is truly revolutionary, thanks to its continued commitment to research and constant innovation. Our ongoing, empathetic dialogue with the many guests we serve every day helps us continually enhance the guest experience in ways that keep the brand relevant and fresh.”
