Hyatt refreshes downtown Miami project

The Hyatt Regency Miami is to undergo a $20
million facelift, to 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

    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

    “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.
