Hyatt Centric SouthPark Charlotte is now open

by | 21 Jun 2021 | Design

The Hyatt Centric brand has made its North Carolina debut with the opening of a locally inspired hotel in Charlotte, featuring architecture and interiors by Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio.

A new 175-key property, Hyatt Centric SouthPark Charlotte, is embracing the city’s history through its design while providing an appealing social hub for guests.

Reflecting its location

Hyatt Centric SouthPark Charlotte has started welcoming guests through its doors in the premier retail and business district of Charlotte. Fusing a modern ambiance with a distinctly local flavour, the hotel caters for travellers who are looking for a welcoming base at the heart of the city’s action.

Hyatt Centric’s latest outpost is just moments away from SouthPark’s shopping, dining and entertainment, a short journey from the museums and attractions of Uptown Charlotte and within easy reach of Charlotte Douglas International Airport.

Atlanta-based Rule Joy Trammell + Rubio has designed the architecture and interiors to reflect the history of the city and landscape of the region. An earthy palette of green, blue and gold is paired with natural materials such as wood, water and stone. Moreover, the lobby features a curved central staircase and artworks including a metallic six-foot peacock statue and a mural featuring 100 porcelain gold ceramic mining pans.

Nish Patel, president of Beacon Investment Management Group, the hotel’s developer and management company, said: “We are thrilled to welcome guests and locals alike to Hyatt Centric SouthPark Charlotte. The hotel will introduce visitors to a modern, inviting space with unique artwork and architectural features representative of Charlotte’s growth as one of the true jewel cities of the Southeastern United States.

“We worked to create a one-of-a-kind destination in the city, offering a truly fun, sophisticated and shareworthy experience for all that provides the perfect launchpad for guests to discover the magic of Charlotte.”

A new social hub

The hotel’s restaurants are designed to be gathering spaces for both Charlotte residents and guests. Lobby restaurant IRO, for instance, is a naturally lit space offering seasonal small plates along with local craft beers and global wines.

Meanwhile, its panoramic rooftop restaurant by Indigo Road Hospitality Group, Mizu, which is to open in August, will offer Japanese robata-grilled and raw dishes by executive chef Michael Chanthavong, paired with drinks using Japanese spirits and seasonal ingredients.

The hotel’s 175 guestrooms, which include 11 suites, are thoughtfully designed with amenities including soft-close doors and drawers, dedicated reading lights and rainfall showers. All rooms come with an abstract depiction of a crown, which is a nod to Queen Charlotte.

The guest offering is completed by a rooftop fitness centre, onsite parking and 4,000 sq ft of event space. These banquet and meeting rooms, named after local historical figures, boast floor-to-ceiling windows.
