Historically, the travel and tourism industry has proven to be resilient. In good news for hoteliers, strong growth will continue in 2012 proving there’s a method behind the long-forecasted, now completed renovation work at the Hyatt Regency Sacramento, and a reason to celebrate the Hyatt’s achievements as the hotel hosts VIPS at its Renovation Celebration, Thursday, January 12, 1209 L Street, downtown Sacramento, across from the State Capitol.

The Hyatt began the long-awaited $3 million Phase II renovation last summer, finishing the hotel’s “public spaces," including the lobby floor, Amourath lobby lounge, Vines Restaurant, second floor meeting space and the 15th Floor Capitol View Room—featuring the region’s most spectacular 360 views of Sacramento and the State Capitol.

In late 2009, the Hyatt Regency Sacramento completed Phase I of a multi-million dollar renovation of its 503 guestrooms spanning 12 floors. Stately elegance served as the inspiration for the hotel’s design, incorporating a rich color palate and a host of modern, efficient amenities that the 21st Century traveler has come to appreciate.

A creative endeavor of Austin, Texas-based interior design firm Looney & Associates, the Hyatt’s elegant and minimalist lines including wall treatments, furnishings and artwork is designed to enhance the hotel’s public space and provide a comfortable retreat that reflects the appeal of the outdoor environment. The guest check in area has also been redesigned with today’s traveler in mind—gone are the harsh and expansive counters which have been replaced by “guest pods” that allow hotel staff to walk around to greet guests, creating a more personal and friendly relationship.

The 15-story Mediterranean-designed Hyatt Regency Sacramento was built in 1988 amid much civic fanfare; a stunning achievement and important investment in the redevelopment of the central downtown business community and a critical partner in the future of the local convention and tourism industry. It features over 500 guestrooms, 28,000 square feet of meeting space, a roof top banquet room with the most spectacular views of Sacramento, as well as two award-winning restaurants–Dawson’s and Vines Cafe.

“This multi-year renovation has long been planned, despite the economic circumstances we faced when we began this process in 2009,” stated Scott Vandenberg, Hyatt Regency Sacramento General Manager. “Now that we’ve finished, we’re well positioned to grow our business and continue to influence the economic development of downtown Sacramento’s core.”

Historically, the travel and tourism industry has proven to be resilient. Hotels will continue to see strong growth in 2012, primarily driven by steady demand for hotel rooms expected to increase through third quarter 2012 (www.TravelClick.com). Occupancy rates across the country are up 3.6 percent with business travel continuing slow but positive gains each quarter. With corporate travel playing a key role in driving overall growth of the travel industry, the hospitality industry is poised to gain brand loyal clientele based on prompt and friendly staff and amenities that enhance business traveler efficiencies (Deloitte business traveler survey, December 2011).

Additionally, guest profiles, preferences and travel history will assure that the hospitality industry continues to provide personalized attention to its guests.

To mark the Hyatt’s celebration, officials announced that the Sacramento Hyatt is one of only 27 Hyatt properties worldwide to be awarded a grant for a local non-profit organization aligned with the Hyatt’s philanthropic goals. Hyatt Sacramento officials will present a $15,000 check to their nominated non-profit organization, Stanford Settlement Neighborhood Center, to enhance their community programs.
