CHICAGO — This week, Hyatt Hotels Corporation announced the global growth of its independent collection brands, including recent openings and development plans through 2025 across the Unbound Collection by Hyatt, Destination by Hyatt, and JdV by Hyatt brands.

“With each new hotel opening under Hyatt’s three independent collection brands, we are encouraging unique discovery of the local culture or history of the hotel’s location, truly illustrating the spirit of these three distinct brands,” said Katie Johnson, global brand leader, independent collection, Hyatt. “Learning from our guests, members, and customers is key to Hyatt. Each of these hotels accelerates our efforts to expand our independent collections in markets that reach travelers and surprise locals with captivating experiences.”

The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand defines luxury by experiences, with 25 properties worldwide providing thought-provoking environments for guests seeking a sophisticated yet unscripted experience when they travel.

Destination by Hyatt hotels are a diverse collection of independent hotels, resorts, and residences that are individual at heart yet connected by a commitment to embody the spirit of each location. ​Formerly known as Destination Hotels, the rebranded collection was recently renamed Destination by Hyatt to reflect its global reach. In more than 30 locations nationwide, each property is crafted to be a place of discovery through immersive experiences, authentic design, and genuine service.

Embracing the brand’s original namesake—Joie de Vivre—JdV by Hyatt is all about celebrating the joy of life. The recently rebranded collection includes 14 hotels that reflect their respective urban neighborhoods and offer guests a community for the spirited, the light-hearted, and the young-at-heart.
