Design 360 Unlimited redesigns Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa

The redesign of the Presidential suites was unveiled at the Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa. A year in the making, these suites each have their own unique design and décor theme of Andalusian, Beach House and Contemporary.

The suites were designed by the Design 360 Unlimited team, with principal Meg McFarland and Suzy Barsegian as project designer.

The suites measure 2,600 square feet, and each includes: a fireplace, wraparound ocean front balcony; separate dining room; beach front living areas; full wet bar; oversized flat screen televisions with DVD players and surround sound systems; and deep set whirlpool tubs boasting dramatic views of the Pacific Ocean.

The design goal for all three suites was to infuse a more residential feel. According to the designers, “we wanted the design to embrace the location of the resort and its surroundings, bringing the outdoor panoramic views into the interiors by adding the ‘Southern California beach lifestyle’ into the Contemporary and Beach Suites in particular. The guests should experience the ‘get away from it all’ feeling.”

The Beach Suite has driftwood tones and textures, incorporated softer blues with a pop of orange as a current twist on the beach house ambiance. Sandy hues on the throw pillows and in the seagrass rug offer contrast. Ocean artifacts were treated as sculpture, while new interior landscaping added another natural element in deep green.

The Contemporary Suite was added with “loft-like” elements.

Meanwhile, the Andalusian Suite received a more sun-inspired palette of warmth throughout, paired with the existing wood tones. The addition of the brighter hues of yellow, orange and rust, along with graphic and contemporary fabric patterns create a Mediterranean feel.

Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach Resort & Spa’s character combines Spanish architecture with open-air California flair. Leading architects from Wimberly, Allison, Tong & Goo of Newport Beach, Calif., planned the resort’s collection of mission-inspired low-rise buildings, arches, open-air courtyards with outdoor fireplaces and fountains, pool decks and tropical gardens with landscaping.

The resort’s newly renovated 517 guestrooms, including 57 suites, offer private terraces with views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding beaches. In-room amenities include two-line telephones, high-speed wireless Internet access, 42 inch color televisions, iHome iPod docking stations, built-in safes, refrigerators, pillow-top mattresses and down duvets, hair dryers, bathrobes, irons and ironing boards, over-sized desks, vanities, toiletry items and balconies.

The resort’s portfolio of one- to three-bedroom suites offers a separate parlor to accommodate small business meetings or intimate gatherings. Three 2,600-square-foot presidential suites feature fireplaces, wraparound ocean front balconies, dining and sitting areas, wet bars, large screen televisions, DVD players, surround sound, iPod docking station, whirlpool tubs with ocean views and his and her vanities.
