Hyatt Centric Expanding in Central America

By the Caribbean Journal staff

Hyatt’s Hyatt Centric Brand is expanding again in the region with its second property in Central America.

The brand is slated to open a 138-room Hyatt Centric in San Salvador, the capital of El Salvador, a debut that comes on the heels of the debut a new Hyatt Centric in Guatemala.

The Hyatt Centric San Salvador, set in the Soho Cascadas mixed-use project, is scheduled to open in the fourth quarter of this year.

It will be managed by GHL Hotels, which manages a number of properties in the region.

The brand has been rapidly expanding its footprint in the wider Caribbean Basin, with plans for a new Hyatt Centric in Barbados also in the pipeline.

The latter is set to open in Barbados next year.

“The hospitality Hyatt Centric San Salvador will offer travelers will surprise the market,” said Fernando Paiz, president, LATAM Hotel Corporation. “Continuing our relationship with the Hyatt Centric brand, we’re confident we can demonstrate our expertise to guests, helping them tap into the city’s cosmopolitan hot spots or unique destinations known only to locals.”

The project is the brainchild of LATAM Hotel Corporation, which also owns Hyatt-branded properties in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua.

It is planning to open a new Hyatt Place in San Pedro Sula, Honduras in the third quarter of 2018.
