CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hyatt Hotels Corporation (NYSE: H) today announced the brand transition of The Concourse Hotel at Los Angeles Airport from a Hyatt affiliated hotel to Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport. The 580-room hotel is undergoing an extensive $75 million renovation, which is scheduled to conclude January 1, 2017.
Currently open and accepting guests, Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport is under the expert direction of Managing Director Jeff Rostek with the support of Prism Hotels & Resorts.
“Our hotel is not only helping to transform Century Boulevard, but it is elevating the hotel experience for travelers who want the convenience of staying close to the airport,” says Rostek. “We offer a level of upscale quality and a fine attention to detail with the hotel’s design and service. Our reimagined public spaces, guest room design and anticipatory service will remind guests why it’s good not to be home.”
Located less than one block from the Los Angeles International Airport, the closest hotel to the airport, Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport pushes boundaries of innovation and design with vibrant mid-century modern furnishings in each guestroom, including the Hyatt Grand Bed, the market-leading wall-mounted 55-inch television with HDMI streaming capabilities, free high-speed Wi-Fi internet, and tranquility sliding door on a well-lit modern bathroom with rain shower head. All spaces in the guestroom have been thoughtfully designed for ease of working, relaxing and staying connected to who, and what, is most important to guests at any time.
Upon arrival, guests are greeted by the hotel’s Guest Experience Agents, offering an energizing welcome beverage and a sweet treat. Guests will marvel at the amazing views of busy LAX runways, the airport’s iconic Light Towers, and the sparkling City of Angels, from the comfort of their guestrooms, which features quadruple-pane windows to eliminate air traffic and airport noise.
The hotel offers more than 50,000 square feet of meeting space, including one of the largest ballrooms in the LAX market at 14,000 square feet, as well as the only outdoor event lawns in the area, accommodating up to 750 guests. Additionally, a newly built state-of-the-art conference center features more than 10,000 square feet of meeting space, where people can meet, connect and get inspired.
Hyatt Regency Los Angeles International Airport will launch two new exciting culinary experiences, led by seasoned Executive Chef Charles Fusco, in the hotel’s redesigned lobby on January 1, 2017. Open Market will feature stations designed around convenience and community, with grab-and-go salads and sandwiches, an Illy Café for coffee and pastries, soup and noodles, and made-to-order crafted items. Unity LA, will be available for all-day dining.
