Hyatt Hotels recently welcomed the debut of Hyatt Centric Cambridge in the UK. The opening marks the debut of the Hyatt Centric brand in the country and the tenth Hyatt hotel in the UK. The property is located within the new sustainable neighbourhood of Eddington developed by the University of Cambridge, two miles northwest from the historic heart of the city.
It stands just outside the centre of Cambridge, renowned for its leafy parks, magnificent architecture, picturesque River Cam and stunning historic centre. The hotel features 150-guestrooms and provides the perfect launchpad for adventurous travellers. Guests can also explore the quaint cobbled streets or enjoy an afternoon punting on the River Cam, passing by stunning University colleges.
Set around a central courtyard, the hotel’s modern, inviting architecture and interiors has been designed by Stirling Prize-winning architects dRMM, with interiors created by design studio AvroKO that reflects the destination’s storied history. The social lobby features floor-to-ceiling windows and floods the space with bright, natural light, and modern furnishings with natural, wood finishes.
A carefully curated selection of artworks highlights scientific history of Cambridge, adding vibrant flashes of colour to the communal spaces.
The 150 guestrooms mix understated grandeur with art deco touches. Warming mustard velvets mix with bold, calming blues, all complemented by rich walnut wood touches. Nearly 57 guestrooms offer a stunning courtyard view, 30 of which are deluxe rooms offering an even more spacious stay. The biggest and most well-known museum of Cambridge, the Fitzwilliam Museum, is only a short drive away from the property
