ZURICH (JANUARY 26, 2021) – Hyatt announced today that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management and related agreements with ESTMA HPT OU for the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Estonia, Hyatt Place Tallinn. Expected to open in early 2023, the 168-room select service hotel will be located near the Old City Harbor, one of the busiest passenger ports in Europe.
Situated in Estonia’s capital and cultural hub, Hyatt Place Tallinn will be near Tallinn’s picturesque Old Town, which is recognized as an UNESCO World Heritage site. The surrounding neighborhood is set to undergo a large-scale renewal project and once complete, is expected to bring more business and entertainment experiences to the area. The Linnahall, a former sports and cultural venue, is included in this revitalization project and will be converted into a concert hall and conference center near the planned location of Hyatt Place Tallinn.
“We are thrilled to announce plans for the first Hyatt-branded hotel in the Baltics as we continue to prioritize thoughtful growth in locations that matter most to our guests, World of Hyatt members, customers and owners,” said Takuya Aoyama, vice president of development for Europe and Africa, Hyatt. “Hyatt Place Tallinn will cater to the growing leisure and business demand in Estonia and deliver seamless experiences to help guests get the most out of their stay.”
In addition to offering 168 guestrooms, Hyatt Place Tallinn will feature the Zoom restaurant and a lobby bar, a fitness center and flexible event spaces. Hyatt Place Tallinn’s central location, modern facilities, and flexible service offerings will be particularly suited for visitors seeking approachable, unexpectedly elevated experiences through thoughtful and intuitive design.
“We look forward to collaborating with Hyatt on Hyatt Place Tallinn,” said Galina Ignatenko, owner of ESTMA HPT OU. “As the largest city and the capital of Estonia, Tallinn has established itself as a dynamic and entrepreneurial destination for travelers across Europe, making it a natural fit for the Hyatt Place brand.”
