Hyatt Regency Atlanta debuts $65-million transformation

Hyatt Regency Atlanta is completing the final phase of the $65-million transformation that has seen new enhancements made property-wide. The final phase of the renovation project is slated for completion in April.

The property offers 1,260 guestsrooms and 180,000 square feet of meeting, exhibit and event space. The Atlanta office of tvsdesign led the public area renovation, while architects Stonehill & Taylor drove the guest room renovation process.

Each of the 1,260 guest rooms features new design elements and modern technology including a signature carpet design inspired by the Flora Raris sculpture located in the Atrium Lobby, wall coverings, drapes, artwork, 37-inch, LCD flat-panel TVs with HDTV channels, and iHome Dual alarm clock radios. Energy-efficient fixtures have been added to reduce the hotel's carbon footprint, and bath areas have been updated with new tile flooring, granite vanities, energy-efficient lighting and low-flow toilets.

Hyatt Regency Atlanta has also undertaken a refresh of 180,000 square feet of meeting, boardroom, and exhibit space, including modernizing the 29,000 square-foot Centennial Ballroom. The hotel offers a choice of over 60 breakout rooms.

Hyatt Regency Atlanta also introduces three new food and beverage concepts on the lobby level: Southern-influenced Sway restaurant; Twenty Two Storys, which features a beer-forward menu from local Atlanta and Georgia breweries; and Market, a 24-hour venue.

Meanwhile, the renovated Regency Club, located on the 22nd floor of the Atrium Tower, has more than doubled in size to 1,700 square feet.

Energy-efficient materials and products are now featured throughout Hyatt Regency Atlanta. LED lighting and Energy Star appliances brighten the new food and beverage concepts, and energy-saving elevators and recycling programs have been implemented. Food waste is collected and converted to compost, with 192 tons recycled in 2011. Meanwhile, new low-flow toilets in guest rooms and public spaces are expected to save more than 2.25 million gallons of water annually.
