Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland Opens Today as the Hyatt Centric Brand’s First Hotel in the Pacific Northwest
New 220-room downtown Portland, Ore. hotel marks the latest opening for Hyatt’s fastest-growing lifestyle brandCHICAGO (February 10, 2020) – Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) today announced the opening of Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland in Oregon, the first Hyatt Centric hotel in the Pacific Northwest. The 220-room hotel is located in the heart of Portland’s hip West End District, just steps from high-end eateries and landmarks such as Powell’s Books and the Pearl District. The new hotel features a modern design and sleek guestrooms, as well as noteworthy amenities, including a vinyl player in the hotel’s 13 suites and 11 studio rooms, an impressive array of local art, and a Catalan and Spanish-inspired restaurant helmed by celebrated Portland chef Jose Chesa. The nearby MAX Light Rail and Portland Streetcar stop offer easy access to discover Portland’s city center and Eastside neighborhoods, and to travel to and from Portland International Airport (PDX).

“Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland is the ideal jumping off point to begin a cultural quest of Portland’s unique character and sought-after spots in its distinct neighborhoods, including a wide array of art galleries, breweries and James Beard award-winning restaurants,” said General Manager Scott Lane. “We look forward to being the gateway for our guests to explore local hot spots and hidden gems, ensuring they never miss a moment of adventure in Rose City.”

Designed by leading Portland-based developer and design builder Mortenson, in partnership with Sera Architects, Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland delivers a unique take on Oregon, focusing on the city’s deep craftsman history and its interaction with the landscape.

A convergence of modern industrial and contemporary elements, complemented by locally influenced accents, creates a sense of place for guests and gives a nod to the city’s quirky character. The “Portland Penny” adorns each in-room closet, paying homage to the 1835 American copper penny that was used in an 1845 coin toss to name the new town of Portland. Each suite showcases hand-stitched life-size chicken footstools by The City Girl Farm, speaking to the farming and agriculture around the city.

MASIA, the hotel’s signature restaurant open for breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner, serves Catalan and Spanish-inspired cuisine, and boasts a shared plate menu, refined vermouth selection, inspired cocktails, and Spanish wine list. Under Chef Jose Chesa, MASIA offers an assortment of both contemporary and traditional Spanish classics, combining fresh ingredients and bold flavors to create a memorable dining experience. MASIA Bar, the hotel’s lobby bar, offers a welcoming ambiance where guests can enjoy vinyl playlists featuring local artists and a premium selection of Vermouth cocktails. Additionally, chef Jose Chesa’s famed 180 Xurros returns, serving as Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland’s 24-hour market, and bringing hot xurros and coffee from Portland’s Never Coffee Lab to guests and locals from the hotel’s lobby.

Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland is pet-friendly and welcomes its pet guests with a bowl, treat and in-room bed. The hotel features a 24-hour fitness center and three meeting spaces, including the 1,368-square-foot Pettygrove Room, which can be divided in half to accommodate smaller groups, and 428-square-foot technology-driven boardroom, Lovejoy, named after one of Portland’s founders.

Hyatt Centric Downtown Portland is located at 601 SW 11 Ave. (corner of 11th Ave. and Alder St.).

Will be there next Friday, looking forward to a Hyatt property that's not off the beaten path.

What I'm not liking about the direction these new build US Centrics seem to be taking (looking at you as well, Hyatt Centric Boston) is the relatively small room size. Looks like King rooms at this property start at 254 sq ft-- I remember the day when that was definitely the norm in a market like NYC, but not someplace like Portland.

I'm guessing no bathtub either.

I normally stay at the Hi-Lo which starts a bit smaller and it works fine for me. I guess if you're travelling with more than a couple it might be a bit cramped, but I'd rather have a hotel in a great location for a good price than a large room that I'm barely using anyway.

Can't beat the price either. My corp rate at the Centric is 15-20% cheaper than the Marriotts I stay at. I just saw the HR Convention Center is ridiculously cheap right now as well... glad Hyatt is offering more options than the airport or HH now.

Feels like Hi-lo. Well, the lobby is small like Hi-lo but more bright lights (light as decoration is a theme here). Room definitely has that industrial feel with concrete floors exposed, thouugh walls are not as exposed here and ceiling is lower (do not know if high ceilings are true for all Hi-lo rooms).
No tub, walk-in shower. Sink separate from toilet/shower stall.
Also has Kimpton vibe, with robes and list of complimetary items (and also things to borrow).
Keurig coffee and Smith tea, bottles of water are aluminum, Beekind disposable toiletries. Small fridge in closet as well as safe (closet as in the cabinet-closet kind, a standalone one)

But Portland has the tiny house for comparison. Which is 150 for a big one (there are 2 tiny house hotels here, Tiny Digs and Caravan).
