CHICAGO—Hyatt Hotels Corporation and Grupo Eco today announced the opening of Hyatt Place La Paz in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Hyatt Place La Paz is the second Hyatt Place hotel to open in Mexico and continues Hyatt’s growth strategy in the country.
“The opening of this hotel marks the second Hyatt Place in Mexico, and we are delighted to be expanding the brand’s presence in Mexico. This hotel opening is a testament to the success and value of the Hyatt Place brand,” said Myles McGourty, senior vice president, Latin America and Caribbean for Hyatt. “We believe Hyatt Place La Paz will bring a new standard to the area and will provide a perfect mix of style, service, and amenities that will exceed guest expectations.”
“Hyatt Place La Paz is located in the very desirable area of Costa Baja, and we’re looking forward to creating a positive travel experience for each and every guest that walks through our doors,” said Francisco Hernandez, general manager, Hyatt Place La Paz. “Hyatt Place was designed for a lifestyle, not a demographic, and as a result, we are confident that everyone from business travelers to beachgoers will appreciate the open, intuitive design, casual atmosphere and practical amenities, such as free WiFi and 24-hour food offerings.”
Hyatt Place La Paz opens eight months after the first Hyatt Place hotel, Hyatt Place Los Cabos, opened in Mexico. Hyatt has previously announced additional Hyatt Place hotels in Mexico, including Tijuana, Baja California; and Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche.
The growing appeal of the Hyatt Place brand among business and leisure travelers visiting Latin America and the Caribbean is fueling this growth in the region. Hyatt Place is currently represented in Costa Rica, Chile and Puerto Rico. Previously announced Hyatt Place hotels are under development in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Panama, and Brazil.
Hyatt Place La Paz has 151 rooms, each offering scenic views of the marina or the Sea of Cortez.
