Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa

Davidson Hotels & Resorts added the Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa to its hospitality management portfolio. The 550-room, full-service resort in Monterey, Calif. will continue to operate under the Hyatt Regency brand. The property will be managed by Davidson Hotels & Resorts, and will be owned by an affiliate of Fairwood Capital – a real estate investment firm specializing in hospitality-related real estate. 

“We are excited to embark on our third project with Davidson, leveraging their unrivaled experience with Hyatt,” Todd Solmson, managing director of Fairwood Capital, said in a statement. “Davidson has been a tremendous operating partner of ours for many years and together we will implement a comprehensive plan to elevate the asset and guest experience on this beautiful property.”   

Located in the center of the California Highway 1 corridor, Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel and Spa is tucked away within a 22-acre property, located along the historic Del Monte Golf Course, the oldest continuously-operating golf course west of the Mississippi. Guests choosing to take advantage of onsite offerings can utilize more than 40,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor meetings space, visit the full-service racquet club with six championship tennis courts, tee off on the 18-hole Del Monte golf course, lift in a 24-hour Stayfit fitness center, relax in the 12,000 square-foot Marilyn Monroe spa and wine and dine in multiple food and beverage options, such as the TusCA Ristorante, Knuckles Sports Bar and Fireplace Lounge.
