CHICAGO—Hyatt Hotels Corporation is charting further global growth of the Hyatt Centric brand, with new hotels announced for Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and Portland, OR.
These hotels are in addition to previously announced plans for Hyatt Centric hotels in Dakar, Senegal, San Salvador, El Salvador and Melbourne, Australia. These hotels will expand the Hyatt Centric brand’s global footprint, joining the brand’s newly open hotels in Miami; Lima, Peru; and Santiago, Chile. The Hyatt Centric brand currently has 22 properties across seven countries, including the U.S., Japan, Spain, France and more.
Recent development deals include plans for Hyatt Centric Portland, a hotel to be built by a joint venture between affiliates of Hyatt and Liberty Hotel Investments. The 220-room hotel will be developed within the urban core of downtown Portland, OR, at the intersection of SW 11th and SW Alder St. Expected to open in early 2020, the new hotel will be within walking distance to various food and beverage experiences and distinctive neighborhoods that reflect the city’s diverse and eclectic culture. Hyatt will manage the hotel under a long-term management agreement.
The 332-room Hyatt Centric Philadelphia will be wholly owned by an affiliate of Hyatt and will be developed in the exclusive Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Philadelphia’s City Center District. The hotel will be located just one block east of Rittenhouse Square and half a block south of the many high-end retail and restaurants on Walnut Street, and proximate to the city’s commercial office core. Hyatt Centric Philadelphia will be managed by Hyatt and is expected to open in mid-2020.
Hyatt also announced a franchise agreement with 3800 W Sixth Street, LLC for a 190-room Hyatt Centric hotel with additional Hyatt Centric branded residences to be located in the Koreatown neighborhood of Los Angeles, with a slated opening in 2020.
“The Hyatt Centric brand continues to grow with intent in new markets domestically and abroad. Hyatt Centric hotels put guests in the center of the action, enabling easy exploration of these cities’ hidden gems and hot spots,” said Heather Geisler, VP of global brands, Hyatt Centric. “The adventures Hyatt Centric guests will experience across these new destinations will be built on the same contemporary standards guests have come to expect from the Hyatt Centric brand.”
