The Grand Hyatt in downtown Denver began its $28 million phased redesign in July 2012, refreshing the 25-year-old property with a comprehensive makeover. The AAA Five Diamond hotel is located in the heart of the city, on 17th and Welton Streets, just one block from the 16th Street Mall.

The redesign began with the rebranding of the on-site, 100-seat restaurant into the city’s newest pub, Pub 17 on Welton Street. In October 2012, the Hyatt then opened Skycourt, one of downtown’s only outdoor “gyms,” with rooftop jogging tracks, tennis courts, workout stations and shuffleboard.
In May 2013, the new lobby and the 516 guest rooms were introduced, blending the decor of the mountains with a modern urban decor.
The lobby now features stacked fireplaces embedded in chiseled stone and a wood canopy ceiling. Flexible lounge seating welcomes guests. The traditional registration desk has been replaced by a sculptural root table to enhance the personalization and welcoming of guests by the hotel staff.
The Grand Hyatt Denver's guest rooms continue to be some of the most spacious in the city. The residential-style design is inspired by Colorado, with oak headboards, tree branch-inspired lighting and signature buffalo art pieces. The color palette is inspired by the Aspen trees and cool blues of the sky.

Known for its signature views of the city and Rocky Mountains, the Pinnacle Club offers the iconic, 10,600-mile view spanning from Wyoming to Pikes Peak. The Grand Hyatt Conference Center and the lobby-level Mount Sopris meeting room also were part of the redesign.
