Hyatt Centric Sapporo To Open in 2024
Hyatt has announced that it has entered into a management agreement for the Hyatt Centric Sapporo, which is scheduled to open in 2024.
The property will have 216 rooms and is the first Hyatt Centric hotel in Hokkaido, located in northern Japan. It’s part of a 26-story complex situated near Odori Park and will occupy the top floors of the building.
Guests can expect panoramic views, 2 dining venues, and multi-functional spaces for banquets and events.
The hotel will be located within walking distance of 2 major subway and railway stations.
“As the third Hyatt Centric hotel in Japan, we continue to expand Hyatt’s lifestyle brand presence to better meet the diverse needs of the market and travelers, and we look forward to welcoming guests to discover Sapporo’s vibrant culture, thriving food scene and Hokkaido’s spectacular landscapes,” Sam Sakamura, Hyatt’s vice president of Japan and Micronesia said in a statement.
Hyatt Expands Across Japan
Hyatt has a sizable and growing footprint in Japan. The chain has 18 properties across the country, including the ultra-luxe Park Hyatt Tokyo and Park Hyatt Kyoto.
The Sapporo project marks the third Hyatt Centric in the country, joining the Category 4 Hyatt Centric Kanazawa and the Category 6 Hyatt Centric Ginza Tokyo. There is no indication of what category the new Sapporo property will be.
Hyatt Centric is part of the chain’s Boundless collection and emphasizes guests being connected to the “heart of the action.” Properties are centrally located and rooms at Hyatt Centrics typically feature nods to the local culture.
