03/05/2018

The new hotel will mark the first Hyatt Centric brand hotel in Melbourne and the second for Australia in a significant step towards expanding Hyatt’s brand footprint

Chicago (May 3, 2018) – Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) announced today that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a management agreement with Little Projects for a Hyatt Centric hotel in Melbourne, Australia. Hyatt Centric Melbourne will boast a prime location on Downie Street, providing a launch pad for guests looking to explore everything Melbourne has to offer. The hotel will also join 20 Hyatt Centric brand hotels worldwide and soon-to-open hotels in Santiago, Chile and Lima, Peru.

“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.”

Located minutes from the city’s Docklands and Southbank precincts, home to key entertainment and sporting venues, guests will also be in close proximity to the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Center and the Crown Entertainment Complex. The 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 travelers alike.

Slated to open in 2020, the hotel 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 spectacular 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, Australia 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 as a great addition to Park Hyatt Melbourne, Grand Hyatt Melbourne, and Hyatt Place Essendon Fields.
