Hyatt Regency Birmingham to receive new restaurant after $10M investment

The Hyatt Regency Hotel in Birmingham is preparing to get a new bar and restaurant after receiving a $10-million investment.

The 319-room hotel first opened in 1990. Refurbishment of the guestrooms, suites and eight conference rooms and ballroom has already been completed, with the bar and restaurant set to relaunch this summer (2014).

A number of local suppliers have been appointed to support the refurbishment, including Kidderminster-based Brintons which has provided 9,250 square feet of carpet.

"When the hotel first opened 24 years ago, Birmingham was on the cusp of a hugely important period of redevelopment," said Mario Flanagan. "The Hyatt was way ahead of its time, and the vision shown by the city's leaders in the construction of the ICC and Symphony Hall, in addition to the development of Broad Street and Gas Street Basin, paved the way for a quarter of a century of change which has seen Birmingham emerge as a truly great European city."
