The Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach is a World of Hyatt Category 5 property requiring 20,000 points or $125 plus 10,000 points with Points+Cash. The property is located in the heart of Waikiki on the island of Oahu, and just a few blocks from the beach.
As it was a recently opened hotel, I was excited to stay at another Hyatt Centric property considering my positive stays at both the Hotel Review: Hyatt Centric Santa Barbara Santa Cruz Suite and Hotel Review: Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami.
Upon check-in I was upgraded to an Ocean View suite, which had a separate bedroom and living room.

Overall, I was really impressed with the Hyatt Centric Waikiki Beach especially the ocean-view suite upgrade that I received. Breakfast at the Lanai was also another highlight.
When it comes to the resort, this does seem more of a business property, given that it isn’t directly on the beach and the hotel pool is only a wading pool, so you can’t really swim in it.
However, at a Category 5 property its a good value and it’s brand new. 2 nights here was the right amount of time, and I’d suggest heading to another hotel on Oahu or island hopping. Keep in mind the hotel does charge a $25 resort fee though it’s waived on award redemptions.
