Hyatt Centric Brand Expands in California with Opening of Hyatt Centric Mountain View in Silicon Valley
New lifestyle hotel targets savvy explorers seeking shareable moments
July 19, 2019 // Franchising.com // CHICAGO - Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE:H) announced today the opening of Hyatt Centric Mountain View. Ideally situated in the Village at San Antonio Center, the new 167-room hotel marks the lifestyle brand’s first property in Silicon Valley, Calif. and its fourth in the state. Designed for a growing segment of savvy explorers seeking shareable moments to inspire others, the Hyatt Centric brand currently has 29 properties across 11 countries, including Chile, France, Spain, India, Japan, and more.
“We are pleased to bring the in-the-now spirit of the Hyatt Centric brand to Silicon Valley,” said Rich Higdon, general manager of Hyatt Centric Mountain View. “The hotel is designed as a launch pad that encourages visitors to explore and experience the unique aspects of our dynamic city.”
Tech-forward décor creates a sense of place at Hyatt Centric Mountain View, paying homage to the area’s history as the birthplace of modern technology. Locally inspired art references Silicon Valley’s storied innovation -- a dramatic installation in the lobby, for example, is rendered with hundreds of mini pocket compasses and a neon depiction of the periodic symbol for silicon. A cozy lounge by the bar features metal panels with an interactive QR code motif as well as wall art composed of classic Atari games and other creative memorabilia. Multi-media pieces created with computer components adorn guestroom walls.
“Not just in Mountain View, this hotel is truly of Mountain View,” says Corry Oakes, President and CEO of OTO Development, part of The Johnson Group. “The lively design captures the community’s innovative vibe, immersing guests in the essence of Silicon Valley.”
OTO developed Hyatt Centric Mountain View with project partners including CallisonRTKL, architect, Studio HBA, interior designer, and Lusardi Construction Co., general contractor. OTO is operating the hotel with a leadership team comprising Rich Higdon, general manager, Keith Battaglia, director of sales, and Bryan Showalter, executive chef.
Hyatt Centric Mountain View comprises 167 modern, streamlined rooms and suites designed to deliver everything guests want and nothing they don’t. Hardwood floors are accented with area rugs based on intricate tile patterns, and wall coverings mimic textured woven linen. Headboards offer full connectivity with plenty of outlets and ports to charge devices, as well as discreetly designed lighting. Along with custom open closets, HD Smart TVs, and Drybar Buttercup blow-dryers in every room, among other in-room offerings, hotel amenities include a fitness center equipped with LifeFitness machines, a 24/7 business center and a second-level terrace with heated pool, firepit and life-size games.
The design-forward hotel offers full-service catering and lively meeting space, both inside and out, divided into 11 distinct settings for everything from corporate functions to social gatherings. The elegant Cloud Ballroom features floor-to-ceiling glass walls that slide open to access al fresco seating.
Fairchilds Public House, the hotel’s restaurant and bar, serves up locally sourced California cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with a beverage program drawing from regional breweries and wineries. Hours are 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 6:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Friday; 7:00 a.m. to 11:00 p.m. on Saturday; 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. Sunday; and daily happy hour from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. The indoor and outdoor spaces include a lively bar and cozy lounge, fresh-air veranda with fire pit, and a variety of dining spaces. View On 2 offers cabana-style drinks and dishes on the second-floor terrace, with views of the Santa Cruz Mountains.
With its emphasis on connecting travelers to the local community, Hyatt Centric Mountain View is located just steps away from restaurants, retailers and a movie theater, and close to Silicon Valley’s top technology companies.
