The Hyatt Centric Experience

Hyatt Centric hotels are full-service lifestyle hotels created for millennial-minded guests who view their hotel as more than a place to stay. Each hotel has its own personality and offers guests a story to tell, through its eclectic and fun touches and signature Hyatt Centric elements, including spaces like The Corner, where guests can work, socialize and peruse a curated collection of local books and magazines, and a bar and restaurant area that help foster great conversations and deliver thoughtful, locally inspired food and signature cocktails. Hyatt Centric hotels are centrally located so that both leisure and business travelers can easily explore the destination and get a feel for the local flavor. The Hyatt Centric brand is designed with the concept that “sometimes less is really more.” All the must-haves that guests expect from a full-service hotel are there but in the most intuitive and simple way (e.g., express dispatch service allowing guests to enjoy gourmet food in their room). While guests can enjoy the in-room technologies designed to connect seamlessly with their devices and media, a staff of knowledgeable associates is on hand to aid guests in their discovery of their surroundings. For more information on Hyatt Centric hotels, visit
