Bringing Nature-Inspired Denver Elegance to Grand Hyatt Hotel

Grand Hyatt Denver Hotel, Denver, CO

The Grand Hyatt Denver Hotel celebrated its 25th anniversary with a stunning $30 million renovation of its downtown building, helping the hotel maintain a competitive edge in the Denver hotel market and welcome the next quarter-century-plus of Hyatt brand hospitality.

Completed in multiple phases, the renovations reimagined the lobby, 504 guest rooms, 45,000 sf of conference and meeting spaces, and amenity spaces as a warm, elegant retreat—a distinctly Denver aesthetic.

The bold new lobby focuses on a wall of narrow, linear fireplaces stacked on top of one another and set in chiseled stone, rising to a 29-foot ceiling. New communal tables and comfortable seating in the lobby and adjoining Fireside bar encourage informal interaction between friends or the mixologist preparing a signature cocktail. In the hotel’s conference and meeting space, new finishes add to the renovation’s Colorado, High Plains-inspired sunset-inspired palate. The updated lobby includes a new registration desk with complementary furniture and fixtures throughout. The three-meal Courier restaurant was designed to pay homage to a bustling newsroom, steaming with excitement to tell compelling stories and, here, to deliver a noteworthy dining experience. Guest room renovations elevate with luxury features and plush, Hyatt standards, including downtown Denver’s signature views of the picturesque Rocky Mountains.
