Hyatt has announced that the Andaz Wall Street will be reopening on January 26, 2022 after being closed almost 20 months. However, the hotel will be reopening as the Hyatt Centric Wall Street, and will no longer be managed by Hyatt.
Previously, the Andaz Wall Street was a managed Hyatt property meaning the employees work for Hyatt. With the reopening, Hyatt Centric Wall Street will no longer be managed by Hyatt. Instead Blue Sky Hospitality Solutions will be taking over the management so here’s to hoping the delivery of the World of Hyatt benefits aren’t devalued as a result.
Hyatt announced the rebrand of Andaz Wall Street to Hyatt Centric Wall Street New York. The hotel, which is expected to resume operations and begin welcoming guests on January 26, 2022, will be managed by Blue Sky Hospitality Solutions (BSHS).
Bringing a modern lifestyle hotel experience to Lower Manhattan, the hotel features a design that offers a vibrant, playful interpretation of the iconic city in which it resides. The property’s guestrooms were modernized in 2019, and the lobby was recently enhanced to reflect the contemporary design of the Hyatt Centric brand. The hotel’s ownership group, Navika Group of Companies, plans to invest approximately $5 million to further reimagine the property over the next several years.
Rebranding Andaz Wall Street to Hyatt Centric Wall Street New York was a strategic decision based on the hotel’s location in the heart of the world’s most exciting city, a key brand differentiator for the Hyatt Centric brand, which is known to embrace the locale and inspire exploration. The hotel is ideally situated at 75 Wall Street and offers a premier location for savvy travelers to discover the best that New York City has to offer with premium lifestyle accommodations in the heart of Wall Street.
The hotel will be a World of Hyatt Category 5 with free nights starting at 20,000 World of Hyatt points per night.
With the rebrand, I would imagine this hotel will part of Hyatt’s New Hotels Bonus Offer where you can earn 500 bonus points per night.
This isn’t the only rebranding we’re seeing with Hyatt in New York City. Last year, the Grand Hyatt New York Downgraded to Hyatt Grand Central when it reopened on November 1, 2021 after being closed since the pandemic started.
