The new hotel will mark the second Hyatt Centric brand hotel in Australia.
Hyatt Hotels Corporation has confirmed that one of its affiliates has entered into a management agreement with Little Projects for a Hyatt Centric hotel in Melbourne, Australia.
Hyatt Centric Melbourne will be located on Downie Street, joining 20 Hyatt Centric brand hotels worldwide and soon-to-open hotels in Chile and Peru.
Slated to open in 2020, the hotel will feature 280 guestrooms and suites, a restaurant and rooftop bar, minutes from the city’s Docklands and Southbank precincts and in close proximity to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Center and the Crown Entertainment Complex.
The company says expansions and continued development of the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Center, Etihad Stadium, and the Docklands office precincts are expected to further attract local and international travellers.
Extended Hyatt Presence in Melbourne
The Hyatt Centric Melbourne plan follows the recent announcement of the Hyatt Centric Hobart and the opening of Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo earlier this year. The hotel will complement Hyatt’s brand presence in Australia’s second-most populous city, joining the Park Hyatt Melbourne, Grand Hyatt Melbourne and Hyatt Place Essendon Fields.
“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,” said Asia Pacific Group President, David Udell, Hyatt Hotels Corporation. “Melbourne’s cosmopolitan vibe makes it an ideal destination for a Hyatt Centric hotel.”
