Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced that a Hyatt affiliate has acquired the “me and all hotels” brand from Lindner Hotels AG (Lindner). This move aims to expand Hyatt’s presence in new European markets and capitalise on their current success in the region.

This progress builds on the successful strategic collaboration that Hyatt and Lindner entered in 2022, which significantly increased Hyatt’s brand footprint in Germany and Europe. In addition, it is also to the subsequent integration of most Lindner Hotels & Resorts and “me and all hotels” into the World of Hyatt loyalty program.

“me and all hotels” Brand

“me and all hotels” is a boutique lifestyle brand designed for city and business travellers as well as urban locals. The hotels emphasise sustainability with an urban, casual, and informal vibe. They offer a vibrant atmosphere where living, working, and communication converge. The heart of each hotel features a seamless fusion of check-in, bar, lounge, and co-working spaces.

Their design blends professionalism, individuality, luxury, and cosiness with cutting-edge technology. Through the “local heroes” concept, local partners in gastronomy, music, art, sports, and start-ups deliver unique experiences such as pop-up kitchens, diverse events, and sustainable products.

Their hotels combine central locations, urban design, leading-edge technology and vibrant public spaces. With casual flair, they appeal mainly to city and business travellers as well as urban locals by enabling both social interaction and productive co-working sessions. Local heroes from the areas of gastronomy, music, art, and start-ups constantly provide new, individual experiences with pop-up kitchens, a wide variety of events, and sustainable products. Their hotels are centrally located in Duesseldorf, Mainz, Hanover, Kiel, and Ulm.

“me and all hotels”: Poised for Continued Growth

Following the transaction, “me and all hotels,” currently a nested brand within Hyatt’s JdV by Hyatt brand, will become a standalone brand within Hyatt’s global lifestyle portfolio, which has quintupled in rooms between 2017 and the end of 2023.

Since launching in 2016 as Lindner Hotels & Resorts’ urban lifestyle sister brand, their portfolio has remarkably grown to six hotels and 1,000+ rooms in central city locations across Germany, which are currently included in Hyatt’s inventory.
