Hyatt Plans First Andaz Hotel in Canada

OTTAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA—A Hyatt Hotels Corporation affiliate has entered into a management contract with Claridge Homes for an Andaz hotel here. When Andaz Ottawa Byward Market opens in mid-2016, it will become the first Andaz-branded hotel in Canada, as well as the city’s first hotel under Hyatt’s brand portfolio.

The 200-room Andaz Ottawa Byward Market will be located in Ottawa’s famed Byward Market neighborhood. The neighborhood is surrounded by more than two dozen embassies and consulates and is located east of Ottawa’s commercial office core, a short walk from Parliament Hill and just north of the University of Ottawa campus. Residential towers, restaurants and bars surround the area.

The hotel will include 200 guestrooms, including four two-bay Hyatt suites, two three-bay junior suites, and a four-bay Executive Suite with a fireplace and 560-sq.-ft. terrace. The hotel will also feature a destination restaurant and a rooftop bar and lounge including an outdoor terrace offering views of the city.   

“We are pleased to expand our brand presence in Canada. Andaz was a natural fit for Ottawa’s Byward Market neighborhood,” said David Tarr, SVP of development—Americas for Hyatt. “Andaz Ottawa Byward Market will bring to life the brand’s mission of creating inspiring, indigenous experiences and immersing guests into the destination’s local culture. We believe Andaz Ottawa Byward Market will convey the vibrant, international spirit of Canada’s capital city.”

Andaz Ottawa Byward Market will join Andaz hotels currently located in cities including London, New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai and Tokyo.
