Australia’s first Hyatt Centric hotel is planned for Hobart, Tasmania.
The 221-guestroom hotel will include one restaurant, a bar and meeting facilities and will be located near the Hobart Waterfront.
Hyatt Hotels Corporation group president for Asia Pacific, David Udell, said, “The Hyatt Centric brand offers an upscale, cosmopolitan experience that was created for millennial-minded travellers.
“With hotels placed in the centre of the world’s most unique destinations, this brand provides our guests with a launchpad to explore the best a city has to offer – which in the case of Hobart includes the breathtaking surrounding countryside.”
With construction planned to start mid-2017, Hyatt Centric Hobart is expected to open in early-2019, joining Hyatt’s Australia portfolio of hotels including Park Hyatt Sydney, Park Hyatt Melbourne, Hyatt Hotel Canberra Grand Hyatt Melbourne, Hyatt Regency Sydney, Hyatt Regency Perth, and opening next, Hyatt Place Melbourne Essendon Fields, solidifying Hyatt’s presence and demonstrating its strong growth plans for the country. Over in New Zealand, a Park Hyatt is currently under construction in Auckland.
