Hyatt Regency Atlanta is completing the final phase of the $65 million transformation that has seen new enhancements made property-wide. The renovation positions the hotel as a leader in Atlanta, with design changes meeting the needs of today’s business travelers as well as meeting and conference attendees. The final phase of the renovation project is slated for completion in April.
“Since 1967, the Hyatt Regency Atlanta has serviced meetings and events of all shapes and sizes and we take pride in the history we share with the community,” said Joe Hindsley, general manager. “Hyatt Regency Atlanta is the original John Portman-designed contemporary atrium hotel and we are pleased to introduce this transformation.”
A landmark downtown Atlanta address, Hyatt Regency Atlanta offers 1,260 guests rooms and 180,000 square feet of meeting, exhibit and event space, including the largest hotel ballroom in the Southeast. The Atlanta office of tvsdesign, an international design firm behind several Hyatt projects, led the public area renovation, while architects Stonehill & Taylor drove the guest room renovation process.
Hyatt Regency Atlanta has undertaken a significant refresh of 180,000 square feet of meeting, boardroom and exhibit space, including modernizing the 29,000 square-foot Centennial Ballroom, the largest hotel ballroom in the state. As a top destination for group and business meetings, the hotel offers a choice of over 60 breakout rooms that cater to business meetings, receptions and networking events. Meals are customized with the talented on-site catering department with menus by executive chef Martin Pfefferkorn.
“The transformation of Hyatt Regency Atlanta was initiated to meet the demands of today’s group attendees – time-pressed professionals who expect to be able to work from anywhere,” said Lucinda Press, ASID, senior associate for tvsdesign and design coordinator for the Atlanta renovation.
