Hyatt has 10 hotel brands, including extended-stay hotels and all-inclusive style resorts. These include the Park Hyatt, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency and Andaz hotels.
In 2012, Hyatt Summerfield Suites were rebranded as Hyatt House to compete in the extended-stay lodging market.
Like many other hotel chains, Hyatt recently released a brand specifically targeted toward millennials and travelers looking for hotels in hipper urban neighborhoods. The Hyatt Centric brand, launched in January 2015, is designed for multi-tasking business and leisure travelers.
