Hyatt Hotels Corp.’s Centric brand opened its first hotel in the Pacific Northwest, the 220-room Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland (Ore.). A joint venture between Hyatt and Liberty Hotel Investments owns the property, with Hyatt operating it.

The hotel is located in the city’s West End District, near MAX Light Rail and Portland Streetcar stops. It features a restaurant, a bar, a grab-and-go market, a 24-hour fitness center and three meeting spaces. Portland-based developer and design builder Mortenson designed the hotel in partnership with Sera Architects.

“Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland is the ideal jumping-off point to begin a cultural quest of Portland’s unique character and sought-after spots in its distinct neighborhoods, including a wide array of art galleries, breweries and James Beard award-winning restaurants,” GM Scott Lane said in a statement. “We look forward to being the gateway for our guests to explore local hot spots and hidden gems, ensuring they never miss a moment of adventure in Rose City.”
