How Hyatt's Centric brand will double its portfolio by 2020

Hyatt Hotels Corporation is expanding its Hyatt Centric lifestyle brand, and aims to nearly double its portfolio before the end of 2019.  

Following the recent domestic growth of the brand with the opening of Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach and the transitions of Hyatt Centric Arlington and Hyatt Centric Chicago Magnificent Mile, at least 12 more hotels are expected to join the brand portfolio by the end of 2019. The brand will also continue to expand its international growth with locations expected in France, Japan, Qatar, Senegal, Australia, China and Turkey in the coming years.

“Since its launch in 2015, the Hyatt Centric brand has proven to be one of our fastest-growing lifestyle brands,” Steve Haggerty, global head of capital strategy and franchising for Hyatt, said in a statement.
