Hawaii’s First Hyatt Centric-Branded Hotel Officially Opens

Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach opened its doors Thursday, January 19 with a grand opening celebration.

The hotel had a soft opening in December.

Located in the former Waikiki Trade Center, the hotel is the first Hyatt Centric hotel in the state of Hawaii, introducing 230 guest rooms and suites. Developed by Chartres Lodging Group and CoastWood Capital, Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach officially welcomes guests with rates starting at $229 per night after quietly opening its doors last month.

Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach offers a modern guest room 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 floor plans. 

The hotel offers a variety of amenities, including a lounge pool, outdoor seating with circular fire pits, and a 24/7 fitness facility. The hotel’s bar and restaurant, The Lanai, will be led by chef Yoshi Ohata. The 1,900-square-foot eatery is set in a modern, island-inspired space and introduces Pacific fusion dishes to Waikiki'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.

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.
