On July 6, Hyatt Grand Champions Resort, Villas and Spa in Palm Springs, Calif., will break ground on a $1 million renovation of the resort lobby.

The new lobby will bring a contemporary new look to guests’ first impressions of the resort. Envisioned by the MSM Group of Dallas, the new lobby will welcome guests with a “gathering place” of modular seating and a 20-foot art glass chandelier. Rich hues of red and plum and warm woods will contrast with smooth steel-colored tones to create a feeling of serenity and comfort.

The new lobby marks the third phase of a series of comprehensive renovations at Hyatt Grand Champions. In February 2008, the resort redesigned the property’s Lantana Restaurant and expanded its 25 villas. In October 2010, the resort transformed their 26 luxury Penthouse Suites and the lobby bar, which was renamed Agave Sunset.

“The extensive upgrades to this resort reflect Hyatt’s commitment to unsurpassed design, services and amenities,” said Allan Farwell, general manager of Hyatt Grand Champions. “As with all of our other renovations, our ongoing aim is to offer the best, most differentiated product in the market, change the competitive landscape and redefine the Hyatt experience.  This is truly a repositioning of this resort within the marketplace.  We look forward to Hyatt Grand Champions’ transformation and offering travelers an unmatched, authentic stay in Indian Wells and the Palm Springs area.”

Because of the extensive construction associated with the lobby renovation, the resort will be closed from July 6 through July 27, reopening on July 28. The new lobby is scheduled to debut September 1.
