Hyatt Centric Debuts in Central America

CHICAGO—The Hyatt Centric Guatemala City has opened in the capital of Guatemala, marking the brand’s first hotel in Central America. It is part of a partnership between Hyatt Hotels Corporation, LATAM Hotel Corporation and GHL Hotels.

The 138-room hotel is located along 2nd Ave. in the heart of Guatemala City’s Zona 10, known locally as “Zona Viva,” which is considered one of the city’s most upscale commercial areas.

“This hotel is a prime destination in Guatemala City, allowing guests to begin their journey of the country’s economic, governmental, and cultural center,” said George Vizer, VP of franchise operations, Hyatt. “We are confident Hyatt Centric Guatemala City will deliver on the brand’s commitment to put guests in the middle of the action and inspire them to explore Guatemala’s capital city.”

Guestrooms have floor-to-ceiling views of Guatemala City or the hotel’s atrium. Design features include vintage artwork highlighting Guatemalan culture. Among the amenities are complimentary WiFi throughout the hotel and an airport shuttle to La Aurora International Airport.

At the hotel’s main restaurant, Zamat, there is an open kitchen concept with a mix of modern inspirations and classic dishes prepared with local ingredients. Elsewhere, the rooftop restaurant, Zielo, offers tropical cocktails, live music once a week and a casual menu consisting of pizzas, small bites, and other sharing plates. Additional F&B outlets include Bar Zeis and Ezprezzo Corner.

The hotel is also pet-friendly.
