CLIENT: Hyatt Regency Dearborn | LOCATION: Dearborn, MI | YEAR: 2012
McIntosh Poris Associates, a Hyatt-approved designer/Architect, collaborated with new owners to revamp this outdated, 771-room regency hotel, which has been a landmark in the Dearborn area for decades. The owner’s goal was to update the spacious public areas, including lobbies, ballrooms, meeting rooms, restaurants, and lobby bar, as well as the guest rooms to make the hotel more modern, inviting and expressive of the Hyatt brand. High atriums and wide open spaces made for conscious space planning and lighting details, all the while paying close attention to cost effective improvements and utilizing as many existing materials as possible. The famous curved building made for challenging space planning in the guest rooms, allowing for multiple room layouts to accommodate all room types. Additional services called for 9700 ft2 of Food and Beverage renovations throughout the public areas. The project had a budget of $18,000,000.
