CHICAGO (March 27, 2019) – Today, Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) announced the introduction of Thompson Hotels as the first former Two Roads Hospitality LLC (“Two Roads”) brand to join the World of Hyatt loyalty program on March 28, 2019. This program expansion allows World of Hyatt members more unique stay options to choose from and the ability to earn and redeem points and enjoy in-hotel benefits with the eight participating Thompson Hotels located throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico. These properties include Gild Hall and The Beekman in New York City; The Cape in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; Thompson Chicago; Thompson Nashville; Thompson Seattle; Thompson Toronto; and the new Thompson Zihuatanejo on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. This program addition quickly follows Hyatt’s November 2018 acquisition of Two Roads, a hotel management company with a unique collection of compelling brands, outstanding properties and a significant global development pipeline.
Thompson Hotels is the first of several brands being added to World of Hyatt over the coming months, including:
“We are committed to quickly integrating these distinctive brands into Hyatt’s portfolio, allowing our guests to discover more unique destinations and connect to exclusive and rewarding experiences across their travel journeys,” said Mark Vondrasek, chief commercial officer, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “Within weeks of Hyatt acquiring Two Roads, we started to share sales leads across this collection of new brands to drive revenue and increase value for owners. We are thrilled to welcome Thompson Hotels as the first to join World of Hyatt, with Joie de Vivre Hotels to quickly follow.”
The integration of these new brands into Hyatt’s portfolio throughout 2019 will provide 60+ hotels in 20+ new markets, including Vail, CO; Ubud, Bali, Indonesia; Zihuatanejo, Mexico, and more. In addition, these four brands will expand Hyatt’s resort offerings by 60 percent and include legendary resorts such as Ventana Big Sur, an Alila Resort in Big Sur, CA; Alila Villas Uluwatu in Bali, Indonesia; The Cape, a Thompson Hotel in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico; and Sunriver Resort, A Destination Hotel in Sunriver, OR. Hyatt guests can also take advantage of 40+ new spas, 20+ new golf courses and 10 new ski destinations across these newly added brands in Hyatt’s portfolio.
