Hyatt on track to double footprint in Canada by ’26

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.

With nearly 20 hotels currently open in Canada, the company expects to have an additional 23 hotels open and operating by the end of 2026. This 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. Other upcoming properties include:

  • Hyatt Centric Winnipeg Downtown (2025) is expected to be the second Hyatt Centric hotel in Canada and will be located in downtown Winnipeg. The lifestyle hotel will offer 140 guestrooms and suites, approximately 1,200 sq. ft. of meeting space, a signature restaurant and bar and an open concept lobby. The property is owned and will be operated by The Kothari Group.
  • Hyatt Centric Victoria – Old Town (2026), will be the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Victoria, BC, and will join Hyatt’s growing Boundless Collection portfolio in Canada. Located in Old Town Victoria, home to Canada’s oldest Chinatown and known for its historic brick buildings and walkable streets, the hotel will offer 135 rooms and suites. Food and beverage options include a restaurant, bar, lounge and coffee shop. The property is owned by Chard Development Ltd.

By the end of 2026, the company expects to have an established brand presence in several leisure markets that currently do not have a Hyatt hotel including:
