 $20 million in Upgrades Creates New Hotel
for the 25 Year Old Hyatt Regency Miami

Miami (July 23, 2007) - The Hyatt Regency Miami is undergoing a $20 million facelift, which will make it the “newest” hotel in downtown Miami.

“We will be celebrating our 25th anniversary this year, and these changes could not come at a more appropriate time because Miami has become one of America’s most in- demand cities,” said General Manager Gino Caliendo. “Our new contemporary hotel will have a luxury residential feel and has been developed to provide our fast-moving clientele with the right level of comfort and services for work and relaxation.”

Caliendo describes the new guestrooms as the “epitome of form and function.” They will be furnished with the hotel’s signature Grand Hyatt Bed, ergonomic work stations and flat screen televisions. All furniture, carpeting and fixtures will be replaced in the hotel’s 612 guestrooms.

Also, the lobby of the Hyatt Miami has been transformed with new furniture, carpeting and fixtures, creating a more contemporary look and feel. 

“The relaxing sound of our new lobby fountain, contemporary background music and addition of candles and flowers make us the preferred hotel for the discerning traveler,” said Caliendo. “We are now the hippest and most modern hotel in town.”

More than 100 rooms have been completed, and all renovations should be finished early next year, he added.

Overlooking Biscayne Bay, the Hyatt Miami, located at 400 SE Second Ave., is the city’s largest convention hotel. In September, the Hyatt Miami will celebrate its 25th anniversary with a variety of community events and activities. 

The Hyatt Miami is operated by Global Hyatt Corporation, one of the world’s premier hotel companies. Global Hyatt offers today’s travelers more than 735 hotels and resorts (more than 136,000 rooms) in more than 44 countries. The company’s affiliates own, operate, manage and franchise Hyatt branded hotels and resorts under the Park Hyatt™, Grand Hyatt™, Hyatt Regency™, Hyatt Resorts™, Hyatt™, Hyatt Place™ and Hyatt Summerfield Suites ® brands.
