    Hyatt Regency Seattle opens as largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest

    800 533 Hamish Kilburn

    For Hyatt Hotels, size matters as it opens the new full-serve hotel which shelters more than 1,200 guestrooms, three dining experiences and 103,000 square feet of meeting and event space… 

    Hyatt Hotels Corporation has announced the opening of Hyatt Regency Seattle, which is now the largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest. With its sprawling, dynamic event space – not to mention the number of guestrooms – the hotel joins two other Seattle-area Hyatt Regency properties.

    The 45-storey hotel features 1,260 guestrooms, all of which are furnished with floor-to-ceiling windows, sizeable modern bathrooms, 65-inch TVs and a collection of black-and-white photography, shot by six Seattle-based photographers, highlighting the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest region. The hotel also provides guests with a StayFit® Fitness Centre, outfitted with Peloton bikes and other Technogym state-of-the-art cardio and strength equipment, and an expansive Hyatt Regency Club lounge with fire pits and wraparound patio that provides guests with stellar views of downtown Seattle.

    Located just two short blocks from the Washington State Convention Center and adjacent to The Summit, the planned convention centre expansion building slated to open Spring 2022, Hyatt Regency Seattle offers more than 103,000 square feet of dynamic meeting and event space for a variety of gatherings, ranging from intimate meetings to larger conferences and weddings.

    “Upon arriving, guests will notice the bright, open, and contemporary design.”

    “Progress is all around us,” says Hyatt Regency Seattle General Manager Tom Wolf. “No other addition to Seattle’s vastly updated cityscape is more important for Seattle tourism than the new, very visible contemporary building right in the middle of town: Hyatt Regency Seattle. With the opening of the largest hotel in the Pacific Northwest this year, Seattle will finally have the meeting space options it needs.”

    Built by local developer R.C. Hedreen Company, in collaboration with Seattle-based companies LMN Architects and Sellen Construction Group, the new hotel features elements that celebrate the Pacific Northwest region and can be seen throughout the property’s guestrooms and public spaces. Upon arriving, guests will notice the bright, open, and contemporary design, matched with floor-to-ceiling windows to let in as much natural light as possible, and purposefully selected, locally inspired art and photography.

    “LMN believes that architecture celebrates the inherent qualities of the region, community and site.”

    R.C. Hedreen Company successfully builds and operates hotels in Seattle, and its portfolio includes Grand Hyatt Seattle and Hyatt Olive 8. To leave a lasting impact on the Pacific Northwest region with Hyatt Regency Seattle, the local companies who understand Seattle real estate were brought in to collaborate, design and build the impressive sky-high hotel. LMN believes that architecture celebrates the inherent qualities of the region, community and site. Any new building functions in relationship to the fabric of its physical location and community of users, as well as its social, cultural and environmental context. Sellen is Seattle’s premiere builder – building communities, relationships and of course most of the significant buildings in town.

    Additionally, Hyatt Regency Seattle is targeting LEED Gold Certification in 2019, which is the second highest green building rating in the world. As part of their efforts, Hyatt Regency Seattle has incorporated many sustainable elements into its guest amenities and overall design, including:

    • Premium large-format bath amenities in each guestroom bathroom, saving more than one million plastic bottles in waste.
    • Installing a light-colored roof to reduce the urban heat-island effect.
    • Incorporating a highly efficient laundry system that captures both heat and water after use to reduce the need for additional energy to preheat incoming water to the laundry system.

    Goettsch Partners completes Colombia’s first Grand Hyatt

    Hamish Kilburn

    The Grand Hyatt hotel is “positioned as the crown jewel” of an 18-building commercial complex between the historic centre and airport and adds to the firm’s 30-plus hospitality works globally…

    Architecture firm Goettsch Partners has announced the completion of the Grand Hyatt Bogotá, a new, 372-key hotel complex with a 230-foottall elliptical tower marking the symbolic centre of an 18-building commercial complex. The new hotel, replete with helipad for visiting dignitaries, has debuted this fall as one of South America’s preferred destinations and accommodations. The Grand Hyatt Bogotá also signals another landmark addition to the extensive portfolio of hospitality architecture by Goettsch Partners – known globally as GP – spanning 30-plus major hotel projects and more than 50 million square feet of facilities on three continents.

    The project is the second for Goettsch Partners (GP) in South America, following the successful Grand Hyatt São Paulo in Brazil, which opened more than 15 years ago. The new project, developed by the Luis Carlos Sarmiento Angulo Organization and positioned by operator Hyatt Hotels Corporation as the premier hotel in the city and the first Grand Hyatt in Colombia, has paired architect GP with Chilean interior design firm Studio Echeverría Edwards. The architect of record and general contractor is Construcciones Planificadas, and GP collaborated with an international team of engineers and consultants, including a bioclimatic expert.

    “This new hotel complex represents an exceptional opportunity to create a singular and completely modern touchstone in South America to draw both international travelers and dignitaries as well as Colombian businesspeople and families looking for the finest experience — and the largest ballroom — available in Bogotá,” says Travis Soberg, AIA, LEED AP, principal and director of sustainable design for GP.

    “The Grand Hyatt Bogotá’s curving glass walls employ robust double glazing and a highly insulated envelope.”

    Designed to anchor the business district called Ciudad Empresarial Sarmiento Angulo and to integrate with its glass-and-steel office blocks set against the scenic mountain Monserrate, the Grand Hyatt Bogotá stands out in Colombia for its modern expression and incorporates leading-edge technology and design ideas. Unique to the region, the hotel is wrapped in a precision-engineered, blueglass curtain wall and detailed with wood millwork — both from Spain — as well as imported fabricated stone, among other high-end components.

    The Grand Hyatt Bogotá’s curving glass walls employ robust double glazing and a highly insulated envelope, ensuring quiet guestrooms and other interior areas, says Soberg. A three-story podium clad in warm stone, natural wood, bronze-toned metals and glass wraps the lobby, restaurants and other amenities, offering views into the hotel and through to the commercial area’s central paseo, or walkway, from the adjoining neighborhood. Outdoor dining and gathering areas connect the hotel to the paseo’s pedestrian life, creating an active urban space and inviting atmosphere.

    “We have the best hotel in Colombia, an example of what can be achieved when things are thoughtfully considered,” the project’s leader and backer, businessman Dr. Luis Carlos Sarmiento Angulo, announced at the ribbon-cutting. “Today we deliver this Grand Hyatt as a world-class project.” Inside, the hotel complex opens to a dramatic atrium, leading to 30,000 square feet of meeting and event space, two signature restaurants, a bar and coffee shop, as well as a fitness center, pool and full-service spa. The ballroom is the largest regionally, according to the developers. “The taut, reflective glass façade heralds the arrival of the modern and progressive city of Bogotá,” says architect Michael F.Kaufman, AIA, LEED AP, partner-in-charge at GP. “Its design acknowledges the hotel’s role in this growing business district while gesturing to the city center and offering guestroom views to Bogotá’s downtown.”

In addition to offering first-class accommodations and luxury amenities and services, the hotel brings to life Colombian culture through its innovative architecture, distinctive interior design and multicultural culinary offering.

    Designed with bold and vibrant features, the hotel has 372 beautifully decorated guestrooms, including 50 suites, that invite guests to wake up in open, airy rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the lush inner atrium garden, multicolored lights of the metropolis, or the cloud-topped majesty of the Andes Mountains. Additionally, suites and club room guests have exclusive access to the Grand Club Lounge, which provides an elegantly designed space with personal concierge services and culinary highlights throughout the day.

     

    The hotel invites guests to schedule time for themselves at Zaitania Spa, one of the largest urban spas in Latin America, where experienced aestheticians and massage therapists work to refresh and soothe guests in 11 spacious treatment rooms. Guests have access to the relaxation area, which is complete with three hydrotherapy pools, steam room, or dry sauna to extend their spa experience. With over 32,000 square feet (3,000 square meters), Zaitania Spa is located on the third floor also featuring a beauty salon, an indoor pool acclimatized to 82°F (28°C) and a fully equipped fitness centre.

    Nestled in striking architecture, Grand Hyatt Bogota sets the perfect scene for incredible meetings, events, conferences, galas or wedding festivities illuminated by natural daylight and modern light fixtures. Expert planners create bespoke events in 24,434 square feet (2,270 square meters) of meeting and event space ranging in scale from the opulent Grand Ballroom, which can hold up to 1,000 people approximately, to 269 square foot (25 square-meter) conference rooms where small teams can work efficiently.

    Art, heritage and culture sheltered in one of Europe’s first Hyatt Centric hotel

    Blue Sky Hospitality complete compelling story in the newly opened Hyatt Centric Gran Via Madrid…

    The interior design of the newly opened Hyatt Centric Gran Via Madrid seamlessly blends art, heritage and culture. The new lifestyle brand from Hyatt has entered the European market with a five-star hotel developed from a historical city landmark built in 1920’s located on the famous Gran Via.

    The creative director of London studio Blue Sky Hospitality (BSH), Henry Chebaane, has developed a compelling, immersive environment that amplifies the brand ethos of providing a launch pad for guests to explore and experience the best of what the destination has to offer.

    “Ondas” (vibes) is the quirky ground floor space inspired by radio station, music halls and theatres of the Gran Via juxtaposing reception, lobby lounge and bar in the style of an open plan performance stage complete with stepped seating, media studio and a selfie booth. The overall red, black, white and bronze palette of the space is whimsically detailed to suggest standing inside the universe of an oversized deconstructed vintage radio.

    The first floor is the hotel other social destination bringing together a meeting and event space evoking a virtual walk in the park, a central garden patio and a dramatic Iberian-Peruvian dining concept called “Hielo y Carbon” (Ice & Charcoal). Guests are greeted by a theatrical show kitchen clad in various black and anthracite materials leading to a crudo bar made of glass and silver tiles and an island cocktail bar specialised in gins overlooking the Gran Via.

    The stylish bar and dining areas have an unusual ceiling covered with fluid silver graphics that reflect back the city lights of Gran Via below, lending a glamorous mood to the overall space that can be seen from across the road.

    In addition to the interior design schemes, Chebaane has created a number of site-specific art pieces evoking Madrid that can be followed throughout the building from the musical score on the custom corridor carpets to the intriguing wall prints in guestrooms and the sculptural light and sound tree in the lobby: a stylized representation of a madroño, the emblematic tree of Madrid, with its specially composed soundtrack of chirping birds.

    Grand Hyatt Changsha set to open in south-central China

    850 586 Daniel Fountain

    Grand Hyatt Changsha, the first Grand Hyatt hotel in China’s Hunan Province, has celebrated its grand opening. The 354-room hotel crowns a 61-storey tower on prestigious Xiangjiang Road, offering breathtaking views of Xiang River and the city skyline.

    A riverfront landmark just steps from Changsha’s historic sites, Grand Hyatt Changsha is expected to be the destination for impressive views and unforgettable dining experiences in the heart of this cosmopolitan city.

    When guests arrive in the lobby, they will feel the crimson magnificence of the autumn maple trees on Yuelu Mountain and Xiang River. The red spice of Hunan’s legendary cuisine and the city’s energetic nightlife inspire the vibrant ambience. Bold crimson tints, rich textures and a sophisticated art collection provide a poignant cultural backdrop for Changsha’s showpiece of contemporary living.

    Conceived by the renowned Singapore hotel design firm LTW Designworks, the hotel’s interiors create a strong sense of locale. The design concept is inspired by two classic Chinese red-ink wash paintings: Changsha by Fu Baoshi and Ten Thousand Hills in Red by Li Keran. The hotel design makes dramatic use of the unique Chinese red shades from these traditional ink wash paintings.

    The constant flow and energy of Xiang River and Chinese historical motifs are also referenced in the natural textures and an impressively curated collection of contemporary artworks and sculptures richly displayed throughout the hotel.

    Grand Hyatt Changsha features 354 contemporary guestrooms, including 31 suites, located on levels 46 to 61. The spacious rooms welcome guests into a modern Asian sanctuary styled with red textured walls, ochre-leather paneling, intricate Oriental patterned carpets and streamlined bespoke furnishings. Floor-to-ceiling windows command breathtaking high-rise views of the city or Xiang River from both the bedroom and bathroom.
