SANTIAGO, CHILE—Marking the second Hyatt-branded hotel here and introducing the Hyatt Place brand to Chile and the South American continent, Hyatt Hotels Corporation and HPV S.A. have opened Hyatt Place Santiago/Vitacura.
The first Hyatt Place hotel outside the U.S. debuted in Central America with the 2012 opening of Hyatt Place San Jose/Pinares in Costa Rica. The Hyatt Place brand has since grown its brand presence in Latin America and the Caribbean with locations in Puerto Rico, Mexico and now Chile. Expansion is set to continue in the region later this year with anticipated Hyatt Place hotel openings in Mexico and Panama.
“Hyatt’s history in Chile spans more than 20 years, beginning when Grand Hyatt Santiago welcomed its first guests,” said Myles McGourty, SVP of operations, Latin America & Caribbean for Hyatt. “Hyatt Place Santiago/Vitacura brings one of the newest brands in Hyatt’s portfolio to Chile, and we look forward to sharing its unique approach to service with a new segment of travelers looking for approachable style and design. It is an exciting time to be growing in Chile.”
Andreas Nauheimer, director of HPV S.A., stated, “We are excited to work once again with Hyatt and bring a new hotel to life in Santiago. Hyatt Place Santiago/Vitacura offers an innovative service concept and a modern design that we believe will be very successful in Santiago.”
Hyatt Place Santiago/Vitacura is an upscale, select-service hotel designed for multitasking travelers, according to the brand. The hotel is located in the Santiago neighborhood of Vitacura, located 20 minutes from Arturo Merino Benitez International Airport on Americo Vespucio Avenue.
Hyatt Place Santiago/Vitacura offers 160 rooms, including 20 suites, with mountain or city views. All guestrooms feature a swiveling 46-in. HDTV, the Hyatt Grand Bed, a Cozy Corner sectional sofa-sleeper and Hyatt Plug Panel media center for connecting a laptop or media device to the TV.

When you hear all the lodging industry projections for the months and years to come, much of the robust growth is forecast to be the result of the expected influx of travelers from China. In what could only be seen as good news for the industry, that expectation moved a little closer to reality when President Obama signed a visa waiver extension for Chinese travelers earlier this month.
