Destination immersion brand Hyatt Centric has made its long-awaited debut in Australia, today opening its contemporary doors in Melbourne.

Located on Downie Street near the corner of Spencer and Flinders Streets, the 25-storey Hyatt Centric Melbourne features 244 rooms along with guest facilities such as fitness centre and indoor 25-metre pool.

A Corner Guestroom is one of the 277 rooms at the newly debuted brand.

The ground floor Allie Lane café becomes the latest addition to the city’s famed coffee laneway culture, while dining offerings also include the Mediterranean inspired Toma Restaurant and Bar, headed by Melbourne chef Jordan Monkhouse.

Hyatt says the hotel’s interiors reflect the character of Melbourne’s urban fabric with tessellated tiles and custom-designed rugs adorning guest rooms and internal brickwork harking back to the Victorian era. Custom brass and gold sculptures by Suzie Stanford reflect the Eureka Stockade Gold Rush of the mid-1800s.

The hotel is located close to Docklands, Southbank and the Melbourne Convention Centre, positioning the property as ideal for both business and leisure travellers.

Hyatt Centric Melbourne General Manager, Ilan Weill, said the hotel will serve as an ideal launchpad for guests to discover truly authentic local experiences.

“Hyatt Centric Melbourne is set to inspire the curious-minded and the young-at-heart who want to be in the heart of the action,” Weill said.

“Our team, engaged and passionate Melburnians, are keen to share their local knowledge, helping our guests to discover authentic experiences, blending the city’s vibrant coffee culture and creative laneway scenes.”
