Making a Difference in Our Communities, One Future at a Time

This week at the Americas Lodging and Investment Summit (ALIS), I had the opportunity to talk with hospitality and tourism industry leaders about something that’s close to our hearts here at Hyatt: unlocking individual potential and building futures through the jobs and training we offer.

We believe that developing those around us is not only an important way of giving back to our communities, but an imperative as we see skills and wealth gaps grow worldwide. As an industry, we can help close those gaps – while we fuel our own talent pipelines – with continued investment in hospitality skills and development programs.

Join Us in Celebrating a New Brand Centered Around You

Celebrating the announcement with Roberto Seif, senior brand manager for Hyatt Centric

Celebrating with Roberto Seif, senior brand manager for Hyatt Centric

It’s so exciting to introduce to you Hyatt Centric – Hyatt’s newest full-service brand. We just announced our plans for this global brand to owners and developers at the Americas Lodging Investment Summit (ALIS).

What I love most about this new brand is that it’s the result of a two-year journey, working closely with guests and our owners to test and perfect the experience that you’ve told us you want. Hyatt Centric hotels will allow us to better serve a particular lifestyle – the one of a wanderer, planner and wishlister. We we like to call them the “modern explorers.”

Who exactly is the modern explorer? They’re a group of multigenerational, savvy, curious consumers who want an uncomplicated but intuitive experience. They also want to really live the destination, regardless of whether they are in town for an overnight business trip or a week-long vacation.

Does this sound like you? We hope so! Because we’re launching Hyatt Centric with the plan to unveil over 15 hotels this summer in key destinations such as New York, Chicago, Atlanta and Paris.

Hyatt Regency Brand Returns to Istanbul

The Hyatt Regency brand has returned to Istanbul, and boy has it ever opened its doors in such a beautiful location right on the Marmara Sea! You might remember the exclusive sneak peek Keyed Into Hyatt readers received as Hyatt Regency Istanbul Ataköy was under construction.

Guests to the new hotel will be greeted with an “East meets West” theme, with traditional and regional design features throughout. One of my favorite things is the gorgeous chandelier — and of course the suites’ panoramic views of the vibrant city and the Sea.
