It’s an interesting time to open a hotel.
The new Hyatt Place Kelowna opens its doors today. The West Fraser Developments Ltd. project is located in the centre of Kelowna, and offers 161 rooms and suites.
“Our doors are open, COVID-19 protocols are in place, and we would love to welcome you,” said Lloyd Daser, who is the Hyatt Place’s general manager.
The hotel building has retail and event space, an indoor swimming pool, a fitness centre, and a rooftop terrace.
“After much anticipation our team and I are very excited to showcase the new Hyatt Place Kelowna to the community and the world,” said Daser.
There are hundreds of hotels and accommodations under the Hyatt banner around the globe, including several in B.C.— Spirit Ridge at NK’MIP Resort, the Hyatt Regency Vancouver, Hyatt Place Vancouver Airport, and Hyatt Place Prince George.
Hyatt also has luxury brand hotels in Paris, New York, Sydney, and Milan.
“We are proud to call Kelowna home and we will be a community and hospitality leader, representing this great city on a global scale,” said Kyle Bingham, the West Fraser Hospitality Regional Operations Manager.
The news is a sharp contrast to a recent survey that found 43,500 people in the industry are still laid off due to the pandemic.
