Hyatt Regency Opens Two New Houston, TX Area Hotels
Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced the expansion of the Hyatt Regency brand in the U.S. with the recent openings of two Houston-area hotels: Hyatt Regency Baytown-Houston and Hyatt Regency Conroe. Both hotels debuted this month and feature contemporary design, versatile indoor and outdoor meeting and event space, more than 200 modern guestrooms, and regionally inspired onsite dining options. With a total of 13 Hyatt Regency properties across Texas, the intentional growth of the Hyatt Regency brand with these full-service hotels further showcases Hyatt’s commitment to offering travel experiences in places that matter most to guests and World of Hyatt members.
Hyatt Regency Baytown-Houston and Hyatt Regency Conroe are the latest hotels to open their doors under the Hyatt Regency brand’s growing portfolio in the Americas, alongside Hyatt Regency Mexico City Insurgentes and Hyatt Regency San Luis Potosí in Mexico, and the highly anticipated Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City in Utah last year. In addition, the Hyatt Regency brand is expected to expand its footprint even further in key destinations with the openings of Hyatt Regency Irvine in California planned for August 2023 and Hyatt Regency Niagara Falls set to open in Canada in the coming years. Several Hyatt Regency hotels are also undergoing extensive renovations and design refreshes, including Hyatt Regency Coralville in Iowa, Hyatt Regency Hill Country in Texas and Hyatt Regency San Francisco.
The Houston openings come on the heels of a strong business transient and group travel recovery, with business transient having its strongest quarter since 2019 and group revenue surpassing 2019 levels system-wide for Hyatt in the first quarter of 2023.
“Houston continues to be a popular travel destination, especially as corporate travel recovers strongly in the U.S, and we are excited by the opening of these two new dynamic Hyatt Regency properties that meet the needs of the modern business traveler in this key business and leisure market,” said Ripton Melhado, senior vice president, field operations, Hyatt. “Both properties are designed to offer a full range of services and amenities, including the space to work, engage or relax while experiencing the globally renowned service for which the Hyatt Regency brand is known. We’re thrilled to offer guests and World of Hyatt members even more ways to experience the brand.”
The Hyatt Regency hotel experience is built with modern travelers’ needs in mind – seamlessly balancing offerings for both work and play. The hotels are designed for sharing, socializing and collaborating, giving guests the opportunity to form meaningful connections in stress-free environments.
