Hyatt Regency San Francisco announced the completion of a $50 million guestroom renovation led by renowned design firm Looney & Associates. The hotel also receives AAA’s Four Diamond award recognizing the hotel’s upscale style and amenities. “We are thrilled to announce the completion of a $50 million renovation to our beautiful waterfront hotel right here in the heart of San Francisco’s Embarcadero,” said Matt Humphreys, General Manager & Area Vice President at Hyatt Regency San Francisco. Urban Modernism Enriched by a Diverse Cultural Landscape was the core concept behind the transformation of the hotel’s guestrooms and suites. Guests are greeted with modernized rooms grounded by natural wood & concrete tones, punctuated with deeply saturated pops of color.  The details, textures, artwork and colors found in the design were directly inspired by the surrounding locale. Hyatt Regency San Francisco is home to the world’s largest hotel atrium which was designed by renowned architect John Portman in the iconic brutalist architectural style. In addition to the renovation, the resort has also received AAA’s prestigious Four Diamond designation.
