  • Comparable U.S. full service hotel RevPAR increased 5.5% in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013. Comparable U.S. select service hotel RevPAR increased 8.4% in the second quarter of 2014 compared to the second quarter of 2013.
  • Ten hotels were opened. As of June 30, 2014, the Company's executed contract base consisted of approximately 240 hotels or approximately 54,000 rooms.

Mark S. Hoplamazian, president and chief executive officer of Hyatt Hotels Corporation, said, "In the second quarter, we reported constant currency systemwide RevPAR growth of 6.1% driven by continued robust transient demand and rate growth. Comparable owned and leased hotels RevPAR increased 4.0% and comparable owned and leased hotels operating margins decreased 20 basis points partially due to a difficult comparison to a strong second quarter in 2013 as well as adverse market conditions at two hotels outside the Americas. On a year-to-date basis, we saw strong performance at owned and leased hotels with comparable RevPAR up 5.1% and comparable operating margins up 60 basis points.
