Hyatt Hotels & Resorts recently revealed plans to launch a new short-term home rental platform called Homes & Hideaways by World of Hyatt. This new platform will offer World of Hyatt members direct booking access to a curated selection of short-term private homes across the United States.
The collection will include private rentals including beachfront escapes, mountainside ski chalets, country chateaus, cottages, expansive villages and more. Other properties expected to join the platform include modern townhouses, flats, apartments and penthouses.
The best part? Members can earn and redeem points beyond the traditional hotel stay.
The new platform reinforces Hyatt’s commitment to providing members with more flexible stay experiences suiting the travel needs of each and every guest. The launch of the new platform also unlocks access to residential rental accommodations in top travel destinations like Colorado, Hawai‘i and more.
Before the launch of the platform, Hyatt identified Lowe, a highly qualified company, to purchase and operate the existing rental management business currently branded as Destination Residences Management. Soon the Homes & Hideaways by World of Hyatt platform will include key existing DRM properties in top U.S. travel destinations.
The announcement of the new platform follows close behind Hyatt’s comprehensive plans to expand greatly across North America through its various hotel brands into 2025.
