The property will re-emerge as Grand Hyatt Scottsdale Resort & Spa in late 2024, with ownership group Xenia Hotels and Resorts planning to invest approximately US$110 million in the transformation.
The resort will undergo extensive renovations and enhancements of its 493 guestrooms; pools; food and beverage outlets; a Spa Avania and Fitness centre; and key public areas and amenities, including the expansion of the hotel’s indoor and outdoor meeting and event spaces.
Renovation of Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Resort & Spa at Gainey Ranch is expected to begin in early summer 2023 in a phased approach with an anticipated completion in late 2024. The hotel will remain in operation during the renovation process – minimising impact to the guest experience as much as possible.
The 27-acre resort is situated in one of Scottsdale’s most prestigious areas, offering a 2.5-acre water playground and a golf course.
The property recently completed enhancements to the grand entryway, which now features a one-of-a-kind sculptural installation, designed and created by artist and architect Paolo Soleri. Additionally, there is a new Desert Garden event venue, available for weddings, meetings and social activities.
Pete Sears, Americas group president, Hyatt, said: “Hyatt continues to prioritise our brands in key leisure destinations that matter most to our guests, World of Hyatt members and customers.
“The planned renovation of Hyatt Regency Scottsdale will be truly remarkable, and we are excited to introduce the Grand Hyatt brand’s inspiring and immersive experiences to Arizona. We are grateful for Xenia’s continued investment in this special hotel.”
Other Hyatt Regency properties undergoing refurbishment across the USA include Hyatt Regency Greenwich in Connecticut, where there are plans for a renovation of the four-storey hotel’s 373 guestrooms, lobby, and meeting space. The project will also enhance the hotel’s amenities, replace the existing restaurant with a grab & go market, and re-concept the existing Gazebo Bar located in the hotel’s central atrium. Completion is expected in 2024.
Plus Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort & Spa in San Antonio, Texas, is being renovated, including a complete redo of the resort’s 500 guestrooms, corridors, meeting spaces and the lobby area. There will also be a significant investment in food and beverage areas and other amenities around the pool area and across the resort, including its spa. The transformation is due to conclude in Q2 2023.
