The Hyatt Regency Cincinnati has announced the completion of renovations to its lobby and existing 486 guest rooms. At a cost of $23 million, the project also called for the addition of five new rooms, to bring the hotel’s total to 491 guest rooms.
The renovation project, begun in December 2012, also included a new upscale Red Roost Tavern that opened on the hotel’s lobby level in early June and the Market, an on-the-go dining option. The Market opened on the hotel’s first floor on June 14.
Now the hotel’s rooms are furnished in neutral tones with red accents and they include new bedding, wall coverings, drapes, workstations, carpeting, mini-refrigerators, safes and 42-inch flat-screen TVs. With a clean and modern design, the new lobby features a variety of seating areas for guests to gather, while the front desk area is equipped with pods for front desk employees to interact with guests.
“These latest renovations allow us to focus on what’s most important to our guests: providing them with a unique experience that anticipates their needs and ensures the most enjoyable stay possible,” said Bruce Flyer, general manager of the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati, in a statement for the press. “The new rooms – as well as the changes we’ve been able to implement locally as part of the evolution of the Hyatt brand – allow us to provide a customized experience to our guests.” The Hyatt Regency Cincinnati opened in the city in 1985.
