1 Effective January 1, 2020, the results of Miraval are reported in the owned and leased hotels segment and Americas management and franchising segment. Fees from Hyatt Residence Club are reported in the Americas management and franchising segment. These changes are also reflected for the three months ended September 30, 2019.

  • Owned and leased hotels segment: Comparable operating margins improved to 24.1%, reflecting strong operational execution and growth in average daily rates. Owned and leased hotels Adjusted EBITDA increased $19 million, or 41%, when adjusted for the net impact of transactions, in the third quarter compared to the same period in 2019.
  • Americas management and franchising segment: Results were led by the continued strength in leisure demand, strong group recovery, and improved business transient demand. New hotels added to the system since the start of 2019 contributed $16 million in fee revenue.
  • ASPAC management and franchising segment: Results reflect lower demand in Greater China while the remainder of the region improved from the easing or elimination of travel restrictions.
  • EAME/SW Asia management and franchising segment: Results were led by Western Europe which benefited from strong international inbound demand and India which benefited from strong domestic demand.
  • Apple Leisure Group segment: Results were led by the continued strength of leisure travel demand, favorable pricing, and airlift that remains above 2019 levels for key Americas destinations.
