Hyatt Regency Louisville completes $5.8-million overhaul

Hyatt Regency Louisville announced that its $5.8-million renovation has been completed.

The new front entrance to the hotel is located on Fourth Street, featuring a canopy where guests are offered valet service. The lobby also underwent changes, including adding a new front desk, and features three separate “pods” used for check in and check out. The backdrop to the front desk is an artistic glass wall, designed by the president of local Louisville business Architectural Glass Art, Kenneth von Roenn.

Along with the front desk, the lobby features a new look to the elevator bay, new furniture, and all new flooring. Another key feature to the lobby renovation is a new Hyatt Stay Fit Fitness center adjacent to the lobby. The new fitness center has doubled in size to 1,200 square feet and features modern equipment.

The restaurant and lounge has been completely transformed into a three meal restaurant named Sway (short for Southern Way). Based on the farm to fork concept, the restaurant brings Southern fare. Sway’s bar allows guests open-air access to Louisville’s Fourth Street via glass walls that slide completely open.

Hyatt Regency Louisville has also installed innovative green infrastructure, including Pervious Pavement surrounding the hotel, to allow storm water to soak through and into the soil, as well as Infiltration Drains, which will capture rainwater and drain it directly into the ground.

Hyatt Regency Louisville features 393 guestrooms and suites, more than 20,000 square feet of function space including the newly renovated 9,280 square-foot Regency Ballroom, Sway restaurant, an Einstein Bros Bagels and a [email protected] gym. Fourth Street Live! is located right next door to Hyatt Regency Louisville.
