“We are delighted to be able to showcase the Lindner hotels to our global guests less than two months into our collaboration,” said Peter Norman, SVP Development and Acquisition EAME at Hyatt. “It is an important first step towards Lindner’s desirable hotel portfolio joining World of Hyatt, and it reflects our team’s ability to efficiently scale proven integration processes for larger portfolio deals.”

“It was important for us to kick-start global visibility right away and we are excited to hit this milestone,” adds Arno Schwalie, CEO, Lindner. “The palpable alignment in company culture between Hyatt and Lindner makes it easy for our teams to collaborate effectively and we are looking forward to making use of Hyatt’s global distribution power once the integration is completed.”
