Grand Hyatt and Renowned International Singer Josh Groban Bring "A Grand Carol" to Travelers Near and Far This Holiday Season

Acclaimed singer-songwriter surprises Grand Hyatt New York guests with an unforgettable holiday caroling experience

“At Grand Hyatt hotels, we seek to provide our guests with extraordinary experiences and moments of more during their travels,” said Samie Barr, vice president of global brands for Hyatt.

CHICAGO (December 8, 2016) – The Grand Hyatt brand and multi-platinum, international recording artist Josh Groban have teamed up to spread holiday joy at the iconic Grand Hyatt New York with an extraordinary caroling experience as part of the brand’s “Go Grand for the Holidays” campaign.

Groban surprised and serenaded Grand Hyatt guests with holiday classics throughout the luxury midtown hotel, including his new single, “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.” 

“Caroling during the holidays is such a special tradition that has brought people together for centuries,” said Groban, star of the new Broadway musical Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. “I jumped at the chance to bring so many people together to sing joyful music in a truly grand fashion.”

From the grandly decorated lobby to the elegant ballrooms, Groban and friends were treated to a serendipitous caroling extravaganza to celebrate the spirit of the holidays as they spread holiday music and cheer throughout Grand Hyatt New York, which will culminate in “A Grand Carol,” a one-of-a-kind music video that captures the spirit of the holidays as only the Grand Hyatt brand can.

“At Grand Hyatt hotels, we seek to provide our guests with extraordinary experiences and moments of more during their travels,” said Samie Barr, vice president of global brands for Hyatt. “Having Josh Groban bring such a magical moment to Grand Hyatt New York is just one of many ways our hotels are celebrating the holidays.”

In the spirit of holiday giving, Hyatt has given a generous donation to Groban’s Find Your Light Foundation, which is dedicated to providing children the opportunity to experience a quality arts education.

Grand Hyatt hotels around the world are also celebrating “Go Grand for the Holidays” with local events that surprise and delight guests. From a performance by a children’s ballet at the newly renovated Grand Hyatt Hong Kong to an outdoor ice skating rink where guests and locals can skate under twinkling holiday lights at Grand Hyatt Seoul, guests can enjoy moments of more this holiday season.

“A Grand Carol” video will debut December 15 on Hyatt’s YouTube channel. Share this magical holiday moment using #GoGrand and by tagging @GrandHyatt on Facebook and Instagram.
