Hyatt Centric Honolulu Waikiki Beach Review

The Hyatt Grand Centric Waikiki Beach is located just next door to Waikiki’s newest and poshest mall – the International Marketplace. The lobby is located a few floors up and impresses with a fresh and modern design. Indeed the whole property just opened in 2017.


Our check-in was quick, painless and rather friendly. Without asking we had been upgraded to the ‘Penthouse’ floor which sits on top of the main building. The rooms provide amazing views towards the ocean and have less noise than other rooms in the property. Indeed noise is much less of an issue compared to other properties in the area.

The room itself was enormous – with a huge entrance area, an enormous bathroom and great beds that gave way to a sofa area that allowed for a wonderful view towards the ocean. I wasn’t so happy with the shower – while big the shower pressure was way below average – there was also no rain shower for some reason.


We reserved some time to enjoy the sunset that day from the enormous floor to ceiling windows.

Note that the windows do not open. The air conditioning worked effortlessly and was able to cool down the room quietly and quickly.


There are a lot of eateries and shopping right outside plus it is just two blocks to one of my favorite city beaches (despite the crowds).

The Hyatt Grand Centric Waikiki Beach has published rates for $199 plus taxes and resort fees (that make up another $50-$70) at most times. Cash and Point rates are at 7,500 points and $100 currently.

In sum – I liked the hotel quite a bit – it felt classy and understated (as it usually is with Hyatt). It’s very new and very well built. However, it is quite expensive (even though Waikiki hotel rates remained stubbornly high).
