The Hyatt Place brand is growing quickly inside and outside the United States, having added more than 30 hotels since the start of 2010. Alongside this fast expansion comes a move to major metropolitan markets and downtown locations for the brand. Hyatt Place hit an exciting milestone with yesterday's opening of Hyatt Place Chicago/River North, right in the backyard of Hyatt's headquarters!
The hotel is located in one of Chicago's hottest neighborhoods, right across from celebrity chef restaurants and in walking distance to hip nightlife, popular tourist spots and famed shopping destination, the Magnificent Mile. It readied up for guests with a fabulous opening event and official cut of the scissors from the hotel team.

The brand also has urban hotels already open in downtown New Orleans, Seattle, Salt Lake City, San Jose, Madison, and Des Moines, among others. Additional downtown locations are expected to open this year in: Minneapolis, Minnesota; Charlotte, North Carolina; Omaha; Nebraska; Santiago; Chile; and Panama City; Panama.
