Hyatt Centric Melbourne will feature 280 rooms and will open to guests later this year.

Hyatt Hotels Corporation has entered into a management agreement with Little Projects for a Hyatt Centric hotel in Melbourne’s CBD.

Hyatt Centric Melbourne, the second announced for Australia alongside a project in Hobart, will boast a prime location on Downie Street, providing a launch pad for guests looking to explore everything Melbourne has to offer.

Hyatt Hotels Corporation’s Asia Pacific Group President, David Udell, made the announcement today (04 May) at the 9th annual Australasian Hotel Industry Conference and Exhibition (AHICE) in Melbourne.

“We are thrilled to work with Little Projects, a respected developer in Melbourne that shares our vision of authenticity and creativity, to bring the Hyatt Centric brand to Australia for the second time,” he said.

“Melbourne’s cosmopolitan vibe makes it an ideal destination for a Hyatt Centric hotel.”

The announcement is the second in Melbourne in two days for Hyatt, with the company yesterday (03 May) announcing Hyatt Place Melbourne Springvale.

Slated to open in 2020, Hyatt Centric Melbourne will feature 280 guestrooms and suites, a restaurant infused with locally inspired fare and a rooftop bar fit for celebration, featuring hand-crafted signature cocktails and views of Melbourne’s Yarra River and Southbank.

Demonstrating strong growth for the Hyatt Centric brand, the announcement of plans for the new Hyatt Centric Melbourne follows the recent announcement of plans for Hyatt Centric Hobart and the opening of Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo earlier this year.

The hotel will further enhance Hyatt’s brand presence in Australia’s second-most populous city alongside Park Hyatt Melbourne, Grand Hyatt Melbourne and Hyatt Place Essendon Fields.
