Hyatt Regency San Francisco recently completed a renovation that include the lobby areas and suites. Originally designed by architect John Portman in 1973, the redesigned hotel draws inspiration from San Francisco’s history and culture.
Guests enter the hotel through a new revolving door and are greeted with new signage and architectural sconces. An escalator takes guests up to the third floor lobby guests over the Bay Level, which includes several meeting spaces. Meeting spaces feature new carpet, rich walnut entry door portals, and modern furniture.
The lobby features wood seating alcoves meant to provide guests with workspace and areas to socialize. The hotel also replaced the lobby’s original water feature with a light sculpture made with 400 custom lights inspired by mining lanterns, adding aesthetic detail and light. The lobby also includes a new bar, Eclipse Kitchen & Bar.
Four of the hotel’s 45 suites were transformed into themed “luxury suites.” Each suite offers a unique design tailored with finishes, furnishings, and art. One themed suite is styled with a stark white and grey color palette and minimalistic modern details, while another showcases a dramatic tie-dyed wall, macramé drapery, and funky decorative accessories.
“We are excited and proud to reintroduce the revitalized Hyatt Regency San Francisco,” said David Lewin, general manager of Hyatt Regency San Francisco. “Our goal was to bring the guest experience to a more human scale and inject warmth into the concrete design, while continuing to celebrate the grandeur of the atrium.”
