Cedar Fair has announced their plan to build a new dual-branded Hyatt hotel on the grounds of Canada's Wonderland, with construction starting in the first half of 2019 and finishing up in late 2020.

The hotel will feature both Hyatt Place and Hyatt House brands in one building, offering "203 rooms – both spacious guestrooms and apartment-style suites – in a high-tech contemporary environment."  Standing eight stories tall, the hotel will reside on 16 acres of land adjacent to Ontario Highway 400, near the park's entrance.  Amenities will cater to both business and leisure guests, including free wifi, an indoor pool, fitness center, coffee and cocktail bars, casual dining options, a business center, meeting and event spaces and an outdoor sun deck.

Cedar Fair president and CEO Richard Zimmerman said, "The new dual-branded Hyatt Place and Hyatt House hotel will continue Cedar Fair's significant investment in Canada's Wonderland, one of the portfolio's largest and most successful parks. We expect strong attendance growth there, driven by the introduction of a new record-breaking roller coaster, Yukon Striker, and addition of an immersive holiday event, WinterFest, both launching in 2019."

The new Hyatt hotel will be the sixth hotel in the Cedar Fair chain, including those at Cedar Point, Knott's Berry Farm and one under construction at Carowinds.
