New Hyatt Hotel Openings in Canada for 2021 - 4 hotels confirmed including the reopening of the Park Hyatt Toronto

 
Continuing on with our new hotel openings in Canada series we now take a look at what Hyatt has planned for 2021.

Out of the major hotel chains, Hyatt Hotels are one of the smallest globally and their presence in Canada reflects that with less than a dozen hotels operating here.  This number has been changing relatively fast, it was only a couple of years ago when they only had four hotels across our country and over the next few year they are looking to expand that number.


The Hyatt family of hotels include the following brands of which you'll currently find Park Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Andaz and Hyatt Place in Canada. World of Hyatt members also have access to Trout Point Lodge in Nova Scotia via Hyatt's partnership with Small Luxury Hotels of the World as well as Spirit Ridge in B.C. as part of Hyatt's Unbound Collection.


 

For 2021 we have four more confirmed Hyatt openings in Canada:

  • Park Hyatt Toronto
    • World of Hyatt Category 4 (to be confirmed, this is what the Hyatt site states but was the hotel's category pre-renovation. We should know sometime in March as to what category the hotel will fall into)
    • Slated opening Late Spring/Summer 2021
  • Hyatt Place Ottawa West (renamed from Hyatt Place Ottawa-Bells Corners in last year's list)
    • World of Hyatt Category 2
    • Slated Opening May 21, 2021
  • Hyatt Place Montreal Downtown
    • World of Hyatt Category unknown 
    • Slated Opening Winter 2021
  • Hyatt Place Brampton
    • World of Hyatt Category unknown  
    • Slated Opening Winter 2021

The slated opening dates are subject to change

The first two hotels in the short list above were originally scheduled to open up in 2020 but the COVID-19 Pandemic pushed those openings back to this year. The Andaz Toronto which was planned to open up this year as well has been pushed back to a 2022 opening (possibly even 2023) and eight more hotels, which are all Hyatt Places and Hyatt Houses in Ontario and Quebec have been moved to 2023 openings. One opening that we don't know the date of yet, well actually it's not an opening as the hotel is already operating is that of The Anndore House in Toronto. This boutique hotel is set to become part of Joie de Vivre Hotels which is a small chain of boutique hotels acquired by Hyatt in 2018. This hotel would be the first JdV by Hyatt hotel in Canada.

The Hyatt hotel that was most anticipated for opening in 2020 now becomes the most anticipated opening for 2021. That is the reopening of the Park Hyatt Toronto.  The iconic hotel that is over 80 years old is slated to re-open by June of this year.

In 2020 Hyatt came out with the news that they are planning to open nearly 200 more hotels in North America by 2022 and Canada had factored in with some decent numbers however as with almost everything these days those numbers have been hampered by the pandemic. Hyatt had originally planned to have close to two dozen hotels in Canada by 2022 but that will now hover around 16 or 17 hotels.  It won't be until 2023 that we see Hyatt's next big push here!

It is still nice to see Hyatt continuing to expand their presence here in Canada given the circumstances. The four new locations that we'll see this year will give all us Canadian World Of Hyatt members a few more places to earn points that aren't off in far flung destinations!

Also remember to take advantage of all the possible World Of Hyatt bonus points offers if you plan on staying at any of these new Hyatt hotels or any other Hyatt hotels for that matter! There are always new hotel bonuses of 500 points per night that should become available once the hotels open up for reservations. We'll be sure to let you know about those offers when they are released and as always you can find all the promotions listed on our World Of Hyatt Bonus Points page. 

Are you excited about any of the new Hyatt hotels opening up this year? Are there any locations or brands you'd like to see in your neck of the woods? Let us know in the comments below.
