Hyatt's Centric brand claims former Arlington, Va., Hyatt

The Hyatt Centric Arlington, Hyatt’s newest lifestyle property, officially opened. Located in downtown Rosslyn, Va., minutes outside of Arlington and Washington, D.C., Hyatt Centric Arlington was previously the Hyatt Arlington and opened following a successful rebranding.

"We are thrilled to be a part of the Hyatt Centric brand," said Ed Brogan, GM of the Hyatt Centric Arlington. "Like all Hyatt Centric properties, the new Hyatt Centric Arlington is in the middle of the action, close to transportation, and a true launch pad to the amazing sights and sounds of the city. Our dedicated team of colleagues is excited to introduce the brand to both loyal and new guests, who we know will be impressed by the many enhancements to our property."

The Hyatt Centric Arlington is host to updated artwork reflective of Arlington and Washington, D.C., with images including close-ups of the Capitol Rotunda, Library of Congress and underground Metro Transit System stations, a guestroom wall with a view of visitors ascending the stairs to the Jefferson Memorial and an entire lobby wall featuring the area's famous cherry blossoms.

"Arlington, Virginia is a community built for those dedicated to public service, which is why Hyatt Centric Arlington embraces this theme throughout its unique interior design," Jim Stapleton, principal of FRCH Design Worldwide, the architect and interior design firm for the hotel, said in a statement. "Our goal was to bring to life the nation's well-known monuments and landmarks in a unique, fun and unexpected way, encouraging them to notice every detail of the area no matter how small. At Hyatt Centric Arlington, guests will view the city through a new lens, discovering fresh vantage points of Arlington and Washington, D.C. around every corner."

Room renovations, scheduled to conclude by the end of 2016, will include new beds, lighting, carpeting, wall fixtures, furniture and artwork.
