Hyatt to open its first hotel in Scotland
Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced that a Hyatt affiliate has entered into a franchise agreement with Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) for Hyatt Centric Edinburgh Haymarket. Slated to open in mid-2025, the 349-room property will mark the first Hyatt hotel in Scotland, signifying a key milestone for Hyatt’s strategic brand growth in the UK.
Located less than 300 metres from the EICC, Hyatt Centric Edinburgh Haymarket will be a part of the Haymarket Edinburgh development, which will encompass office blocks and retail units. In collaboration with Edinburgh College, the EICC development will also include a world-class hospitality training academy for students and trainees focused on a career path in Scotland’s leisure, hospitality and tourism industry.
The hotel will be situated near some of Edinburgh’s most famous landmarks, including the iconic Edinburgh Castle, National Museum of Scotland, and the Old Town. Visitors will enjoy six different rotating street food brands through its fresh and exciting dining concept, changing regularly to reflect the spirit of Edinburgh’s thriving local culinary scene.
