The boutique hotel market keeps getting hotter, which is good news for Millennial travelers looking for an offbeat place to stay. For example, Hyatt Centric just announced a global expansion with the brand's first international hotel slated to open in mid-2016 in Montevideo, Uruguay, and the development of the first Hyatt Centric hotel in Tokyo, Japan.
In addition, three Hyatt hotels in the U.S. were chosen to join the Hyatt Centric brand. The properties, Hyatt Centric The Pike Long Beach, Hyatt Centric Park City and Hyatt Centric The Woodlands will join the brand’s current locations in Chicago, IL and Miami, FL.
The 178-room Hyatt Centric Montevideo, Uruguay, will be located in the famed Pocitos neighborhood and will sit waterfront on River Plate along the Rambla Republica del Peru. With its prime location, guests will be able to explore and experience the city like a local along the Rambla, where Montevideans meet on weekends for exercising, socializing and taking advantage of the best sunset views in the city. The hotel will be in close proximity to the business district and tourist sites, including Ciudad Vieja, the World Trade Center and the Montevideo Shopping Center. This hotel was previously announced as Hyatt Montevideo.
Expected to open in early 2018, Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo will be the first new-build Hyatt Centric hotel in Asia Pacific. The 164-guestroom hotel will be located in Ginza, the prominent luxury fashion and entertainment center of the city on Namiki-Dori, and will occupy the top 10 floors of the 12-story commercial building tentatively known as the Ginza Asahi Building owned and under development by Asahi Shimbun. The hotel will offer dining and a bar with terrace seating, as well as a fitness center. The interior design will reflect Ginza’s special blend of tradition and innovation.
