Dubai’s Hyatt Regency is implementing a year long hotel refinement programme and revamping its interiors and upgrading facilities. The refinement project will begin on 1st April 2004 and involve structural changes to the hotel’s interiors, including a newly appointed lobby, custom designed rooms and suites, an additional F & B outlet, refinement of many of the existing outlets and develop conference facilities. The process, which the hotel claims is one of the most ambitious to take place in a Dubai hotel property, will be completed by mid 2005. “Having been built in the late 1970’s, Hyatt Regency Dubai is typical of the architecture of this period, with duplex suites and high ceilings. Fashions change and so do the needs of the business traveler, and in our newly designed rooms and suites we have accounted for this. We will in fact be increasing our rooms inventory as a result of the refinement. In addition, all rooms will now feature bathrooms with a separate walk-in shower area,” explained Gordon Campbell, general manager, Hyatt Regency Dubai. The property currently comprises a 25-storey, 400-room hotel and 31-storey apartment block, managed by Hyatt International Corporation. The lobby will feature a new 24 hour café, a relocated reception area and structural changes to the main front entrance. Although detailed designs have not yet been made public, Campbell said that the main areas included in the refinement project would feature significant structural changes. Throughout the refinement process, the hotel will be operational, though some outlets, facilities and areas will be closed or access will be limited. The hotel’s main entrance will be closed until September 2004, therefore access to the hotel will be through the corniche entrance. “Over the past 24 years, we’ve welcomed more than 3.5 million guests. Now we are refining our offering to ensure a stay with us is an inspirational experience,” said Campbell.
