Hyatt Continues Brand Expansion amid COVID-19

In a year when hotels are facing unprecedented challenges, Hyatt forged ahead to open a new hotel and convention centre in Mississauga, Ont.

“We are excited to introduce Ontario’s first Hyatt Place hotel to the area,” says general manager, Celso Thompson. “With our smartly designed social spaces, including adaptable, state-of-the-art meetings and events spaces, and rooms with separate work and sleep areas, guests can easily multitask and accomplish what they need to do while on the road.”

Located in the heart of Mississauga’s business district, the 123-room Hyatt Place Toronto/Mississauga is attached to the Luxe Convention Centre, which includes more than 12,000 square feet of flexible, high-tech meeting/function space that can accommodate up to 500 guests. The centre features eight meeting rooms, ranging from 179 to 1,450 square feet, custom designed lighting, floor-to-ceiling windows, a LCD projector, screens, wireless microphones, catering options and more for seamless presentations.

Though timing for the hotel opening has not been ideal due to the pandemic, no retrofitting was involved to bring it up to today’s health and safety standards — hand sanitizer stations, contactless check-in and social distancing in public spaces were all part of the opening process.

A socially distanced ribbon cutting ceremony was held Sept. 21, to mark the momentous occassion.

That same week, the first Hyatt Place branded hotel in Atlantic Canada officially opened. New Brunswick’s
Hyatt Place Moncton/Downtown features 120 guest rooms and 3,500 square feet of event space.
