Hyatt Hotels & Resorts has entered into a management agreement with Elizabeth Tasmania for a Hyatt Centric hotel in Hobart, the capital city of Tasmania, Australia. 

The 221-guestroom hotel will be the first Hyatt Centric hotel in Australia, and will include a restaurant, a bar and meeting facilities by the Hobart Waterfront.

Hobart has been one of the strongest-performing hotel markets in Australia in recent years, fueled by a strong economy and strong tourism arrivals from China, the U.S. and the UK, as well as domestic visitors.
