Daring by Design completes design for five Hyatt House hotels

Daring by Design, a hospitality interior design firm, completed the interior design for five Hyatt House hotels located in Texas, California and New Jersey. These five hotels are owned by Chatham Lodging Trust CLDT. The hotels are managed by Island Hospitality Management.

Daring by Design developed a custom design that was used as a prototype for each of the five renovations. The prototype included renovating 9,750 square feet at each location, including the vestibule, lobby, buffet dining area, seating area, kitchen, rest rooms, fitness center, offices and meeting rooms.

According to Carol Biegenzahn, the former director of design of Chatham Lodging Trust, the design team – headed by Dale Miller, president and chief creative officer of Daring by Design – created a renovation plan that incorporated Hyatt standards. The design was then updated to include modifications for new ADA requirements, as well as colors, artwork and furniture with a local and regional theme.
