Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) announced today that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a master development agreement with LATAM Hotel Corp. to develop 10 Hyatt Place hotels in Central America and Mexico and that Hyatt affiliates have entered into franchise agreements with LATAM Hotel Corp. for the first five hotels: Hyatt Place Managua in Nicaragua, Hyatt Place Guatemala City in Guatemala, Hyatt Place San Salvador in El Salvador, and Hyatt Place San Pedro Sula and Hyatt Place Tegucigalpa in Honduras.

“We are delighted to be working with LATAM Hotel Corp. as we continue increasing the representation of the Hyatt Place brand throughout Latin America,” said Pat McCudden, senior vice president, real estate and development – Latin America and Caribbean for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts. “We believe Central America has strong economic growth potential, and we are excited to see these five hotels become the first Hyatt-branded hotels in their respective countries.”
