Hyatt Hotels announced plans to open a new hotel in Reykjavík, Iceland.

The Hyatt Centric Reykjavík will be the first Hyatt-branded hotel in the country.  The 169-property, which will open in 2022, will be located in the building that formerly housed the headquarters of the Ríkisútvarpið, the Icelandic National Broadcasting Service, which will undergo a top-to-bottom redevelopment to be converted into a hotel.
