Greg Leonard, general manager of the Grand Hyatt Denver, announced that the property is undergoing a $28 million redesign. The 516-room hotel is marking its 25th anniversary this year and will complete the comprehensive makeover in the spring.
The lobby will be revitalized with stacked fireplaces embedded in chiseled stone, hand tufted rugs, and a wood canopy ceiling. An onyx feature wall will be the backdrop for a sculptural root table that will serve as a registration desk, presenting a new concept in how the hotel’s staff greets arriving guests.
New light figures, sconces, wall coverings, and flooring will be implemented in the 38th floor Pinnacle Club. Additional changes to meeting and event space of the newly renovated hotel also include the Grand Hyatt Denver Conference Center, located on the second floor of the adjoining office tower and overlooking the 17th Street business and financial district. The hotel’s lobby level Mt. Sopris meeting room will receive a new look as well.
All guestrooms and suites will have natural material upgrades and new furnishings. The design will feature ceruse oak headboards, tree branch inspired accent lighting, and a signature buffalo art piece adorning the wall.
Other property upgrades include a renovation of Pub 17, the hotel restaurant featuring locally sourced food and microbrews, and the addition of the Skycourt, an outdoor roof-top jogging track and tennis court. The indoor heated pool and 24-hour fitness center were also updated.
