Hyatt Hotels Corp. has opened three new properties across the country so far this month.

Philadelphia

The new-build Hyatt Centric Center City Philadelphia has 332 guestrooms, a lobby bar and restaurant as well as a grab-and-go market. 

The hotel has more than 5,000 square feet of function space in seven rooms on the second floor. Each of the hotel’s meeting spaces were named after groundbreaking Philadelphians. 

Located in Rittenhouse Square, the hotel is within walking distance of most attractions and 8 miles from Philadelphia International Airport.

Kansas City

In Missouri, the Hotel Kansas City has opened as a part of The Unbound Collection by Hyatt brand in the historic Kansas City Club building. The hotel's renovation was led by Chicago-based Simeone Deary Design Group, which maintained touches like stained glass and hand-hewn walnut to pay homage to the building’s history as a prominent 1920s social club. The hotel’s 144 guestrooms and suites were inspired by Victorian style. 

Hotel Kansas City’s four restaurants and bars also pay homage to the hotel’s past. Next year, the property plans to introduce a cellar saloon, El Gold. 

The hotel's event spaces cover more than 20,000 square feet, including a 6,000-square-foot rooftop.

Nashville

In Tennessee, the 591-room Grand Hyatt Nashville is the first pillar of the 18-acre Nashville Yards development. 

For more than a century, the site of the hotel and Nashville Yards was a transportation hub and rail yard, lumber yard, brick yard and stone yard. The hotel design for Grand Hyatt Nashville takes inspiration from the site’s history by incorporating reference to the rail lines in large art installations and lobby seating that pays homage to the lumber yard. 

The new property has one of the tallest outdoor rooftop lounges in Nashville, a fifth-floor pool deck, a spa and seven dining options. The hotel also has 77,000 square feet of event and prefunction space, including a 20,000-square-foot grand ballroom, and is within walking distance to many of Nashville’s most popular attractions, including the Nashville Convention Center, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Bridgestone Arena.
