Hyatt Centric Edinburgh Haymarket

Hyatt Centric Edinburgh Haymarket will be the brand’s first property in Scotland, and its second in the United Kingdom.

The lifestyle hotel is slated to open in mid-2025 and will feature 349 rooms. Guests will also benefit from access to a gym and four meeting rooms. Its food offer will be based on a rotating concept of six street food brands that alternately take up residence in the hotel.

It will be designed by Foster + Partners using a sustainable and responsible approach. The interiors will come courtesy of Glasgow-based architecture and design firm, Ica.

Hyatt Centric are developing the hotel as part of a franchise agreement with Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC). It will be located less than 300 m from the centre and be a part of its larger development. The EICC development will also include office blocks and retail units as well as a hospitality training academy, in collaboration with Edinburgh College.

Centrally located, Hyatt Centric Edinburgh Haymarket will offer guests easy access to city landmarks such as Edinburgh Castle, the National Museum of Scotland and the Old Town. Edinburgh International Airport will be only 6 miles (10 km) away from the hotel.

Hyatt Centric Edinburgh Haymarket will be a cornerstone to attracting local and international travellers and notable luminaries to our venue each year.

This new-build development demonstrates Hyatt’s commitment to growing its portfolio of lifestyle brands across the U.K, in locations that matter most to our guests, members, customers, and owners.
