Hyatt has debuted its Centric brand in Italy, with the addition of two rebranded properties in Milan and Venice.
The 141-room Hyatt Centric Milan Centrale is located in the Porta Nuova district of the city, within walking distance of Central Station, and features a rooftop bar, and leisure facilities including a sauna, Turkish bath, salt cave and relaxation room.
Meanwhile the 119-room Hyatt Centric Murano Venice is located close to the Murano Glass Museum and the Basílica dei Santi María e Donato, and is built within the walls of a former glass manufacturing furnace.
Hyatt Centric Milan Centrale previously operated as LaGare Hotel Milano, while Hyatt Centric Murano Venice was previously the LaGare Hotel Venezia. Both hotels were operating under Accor’s MGallery by Sofitel brand.
Commenting on the news Matthias Lowin, managing director of German Feuring Group, said:
“The acquisition of the two properties has been a perfect opportunity to follow up on the long-standing teamwork with Hyatt.
“After the announcement of the Hyatt Regency development in Düsseldorf and the Hyatt Place development at Frankfurt Airport, we are very excited to be an integral force behind the introduction of the Hyatt Centric brand to Italy.”
The two properties join three existing Hyatt Centric hotels in Europe – Hyatt Centric La Rosière in the French Alps, Hyatt Centric Gran Via Madrid and Hyatt Centric Levent Istanbul.
The Hyatt Centric brand launched in 2015, with properties described as “full-service lifestyle hotels located in prime destinations”.
