Northern Vision Development LP (NVD) today announced plans to construct a 100-room Hyatt Place hotel in Whitehorse, Yukon. NVD is developing the project and will be managing the hotel.
Expected to open in early 2024, Hyatt Place Whitehorse will mark the first Hyatt-branded hotel in Canada’s Yukon Territory and will bring the brand’s intuitive design, casual atmosphere, and practical amenities, such as free Wi-Fi and 24-hour food offerings, to the Whitehorse area. Located in the heart of downtown Whitehorse, the newly constructed Hyatt Place hotel will enjoy a central Main Street location, steps away from shops, offices, restaurants, coffee shops, tourist attractions and the Yukon River waterfront.
“Hyatt Place Whitehorse will bring a new class of hotel to the market,” commented CEO Rich Thompson, NVD. “We considered an extensive range of options and landed on the Hyatt Place brand because of a strong fit with the Hyatt team and because we felt the brand was ideal for our Main Street location. This is an exciting next step for the NVD Hotel Division.”
“Hyatt Place Whitehorse will bring a new and dynamic product to the marketplace and is a great example of our continued focus on growing premium hotels that will attract business and leisure travelers alike,” said Scott Richer, Hyatt’s regional vice president of development for Canada. “As the first Hyatt hotel in Canada’s North, we are thrilled to collaborate with the Northern Vision Development team on this important project. I want to offer my congratulations and gratitude to everyone at Northern Vision Development who collaborated with us in order to bring this standout development to fruition.”
