Hyatt Centric South Beach Miami, a new lifestyle hotel developed by Miami-based Robert Finvarb Companies and its partner David Martins, celebrated its recent opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine was among those in attendance at the 105-room hotel. The property, at 1600 Collins Avenue, represents the first Hyatt Centric-branded hotel in Miami Beach, and the second Hyatt Centric property worldwide, after Chicago. Another 15 rebranded hotels are on tap for New York, Paris and other destinations, Robert Finvarb, CEO of Robert Finvarb Companies, previously told TRD.
