Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach Opens Its Doors to a New Wave of International Explorers

Global travelers and modern explorers can now experience the new Hyatt Centric Waikīkī Beach which officially opened its doors to guests today. Located in the former Waikīkī Trade Center, the hotel is the first Hyatt Centric hotel in the state of Hawai'i, introducing 230 contemporary guestrooms and suites in the heart of the world-famous destination. To commemorate its opening, the hotel will host a grand opening celebration on Jan. 19, 2017, that will kick-off with Hawai'i's first-ever Walk For Wishes® event, benefitting Make-A-Wish® Hawaii.

"The revitalization of this property has been an incredible journey, and our entire Hyatt Centric Waikīkī Beach 'ohana is overjoyed to welcome guests," said Charles Young, general manager of Hyatt Centric Waikīkī Beach. "We are proud to play a role in the renaissance of Kuhio Avenue. Our hotel is a true launch pad for guests to explore and discover the best of Waikīkī's urban setting."

Developed by Chartres Lodging Group and CoastWood Capital Group, Hyatt Centric Waikīkī Beach offers a modern guestroom design, including floor-to-ceiling windows with panoramic views of the ocean and Diamond Head, spa-like bathrooms with Drybar Buttercup blow dryers, and spacious floorplans, enhance the guest experience. The hotel boasts a variety of upscale amenities including a lounge pool, outdoor seating with circular fire pits, a 24/7 fitness facility and a 400-stall parking garage. The hotel's bar and restaurant, The Lānai, will be led by Chef Yoshi Ohata. The 1,900-square-foot eatery is set in a modern, island-inspired space and will introduce creative Pacific fusion dishes to Waikīkī's culinary scene.

Several popular retailers also join the property in re-energized storefronts, including a two-level Nordstrom Rack, which opened in September 2016, Starbucks offering craft beers, wines and gourmet appetizers in the evening hours, Jamba Juice, and American Savings Bank.

"Our vision for this hotel was to create a unique, forward-looking offering for travelers that seek to incorporate exploration into their international experience," said Maki Nakamura Bara, president and co-founder of Chartres Lodging Group. "Hyatt Centric Waikīkī Beach reflects the spirit of exploration and discovery that is at the core of the Hyatt Centric brand and is a fantastic addition to the thriving tourism market."

Construction on the property began in summer 2015, with renovations led by Swinerton Builders, local architecture firm Group 70 and California design firm DESIGN360unlimited. Throughout the transformation, the project created approximately 600 construction jobs and 100 full-time and part-time positions.

In partnership with Make-A-Wish® Hawaii, the hotel's grand opening celebration on Jan. 19, 2017 will feature the state's first Walk For Wishes® fundraiser. At the walk event, key stakeholders, community members and Hyatt Centric Waikīkī Beach colleagues will come together to celebrate the legacy of the nonprofit organization and raise funds to grant wishes to local children battling life-threatening medical conditions.

A valuable land asset of Queen Emma Land Company, the redeveloped Waikīkī Trade Center will directly support The Queen's Medical Center, the state's largest private, nonprofit hospital.

Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach will be the 12th hotel in the Hyatt Centric brand's portfolio, joining hotels in North America and Latin America destinations including New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, Key West, Montevideo, Uruguay, among others. Rates start at $229.
