Hyatt Completes Mr & Mrs Smith Acquisition, Continues Global Expansion

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced the completed acquisition of London-based Mr & Mrs Smith, a global travel platform that provides direct booking access to a collection of more than 1,500 boutique and luxury properties. With this addition, Hyatt has added more than 20 new countries to its global portfolio, including Fiji, Croatia, Iceland and Anguilla. Hyatt acquired 100 percent of the asset-light Mr & Mrs Smith platform for an enterprise value of £53 million in cash consideration. 

Hyatt further continues its growth journey on the heels of doubling the number of luxury rooms, tripling the number of resort rooms and quadrupling the number of lifestyle rooms over the past five years. Hyatt is poised to build upon that momentum with expansive opportunities globally across its brand portfolio and developer interest in Hyatt Studios, Hyatt’s new extended-stay brand entry into the upper-midscale segment in the Americas.
