Most people celebrate their 25th anniversary by exchanging silver–but the Grand Hyatt Denver embarked on a $28 million renovation to commemorate their 25th instead.

From the new Pub17 to completely renovated rooms, lobby, pool area and meeting rooms to the new state of the art rooftop running track and tennis court, the Grand Hyatt, 1750 Welton in downtown Denver, is matching their stellar reputation with the newest decor and technology.

Guest rooms take advantage of Rocky Mountain vistas and incorporating rich textures, natural materials and warm modern furnishings. Meeting rooms combine comfort and functionality and incorporate the same warm surroundings as the rooms and lobby area.

The Hyatt proclaims itself as “a juxtaposition of nature and and urbanism,” and also brings to guests and visitors the highest quality in customer service and host offerings. The historic Pinnacle Club on the 38th floor is not only rich in decor, but in history as well. What began as the Petroleum Club in 1978 has become the stylish and elegant Pinnacle Club and the old saying of “if these walls could talk” is especially appropo here (the new walls as well as the old.)

The unveiling party for this truly “Grand” hotel was Monday, August 19. General Manager Greg Leonard proudly presented the new Rocky Mountain gem to the city with style and panache indicative of the way the hotel is operated.

“What makes this renovation such a stand-out is the blend of contemporary with indigenous decor,” said Leonard. “It is all designed to bring the outside in; a reminder of the scenic and exuberant place that is the Mile High City.”
