Hyatt reaches record global pipeline of 129K rooms

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has revealed that its pipeline has grown by nearly 85% since 2017, reaching a record 129,000 rooms. The company said it has doubled its luxury rooms, tripled its resort rooms and quintupled its lifestyle rooms since 2017.

“Hyatt’s ability to lead the industry in net rooms growth for seven years is a result of our unique approach to development,” said Mark Hoplamazian, president/CEO, Hyatt. “We strategically expand our portfolio of brands, intentionally selecting new and existing markets to enhance our network effect for owners and guests. Our commitment to thoughtful organic growth and strategic acquisitions amplifies our asset-light business model. Our goal is not to be the largest hospitality company, but the company most valued by colleagues, guests, and owners.”

Additionally, the World of Hyatt loyalty program has quadrupled its membership since 2017 and was up 22% as of the end of the first quarter compared to the same period last year, reaching 46 million members globally.
