Hyatt Regency Indianapolis Announces $11-Million Renovation

Addition of 10,000 Square Feet of New Ballroom and Meeting Space, New Italian/American Restaurant, Cosmopolitan Lounge and Starbucks ® Coffee Shop

Hyatt Regency Indianapolis is excited to announce the groundbreaking of their $11-million renovation. The redesigned hotel will include an additional 10,000 square feet of meeting space, an Italian/American restaurant, cosmopolitan lounge, Starbucks® coffee shop and sophisticated lobby. A renovation ceremony will take place January 25, 2007 at 3:00 PM to kick off the fabulous changes set to take place at the Hyatt Regency Indianapolis.

“We anticipate the additional meeting space and enhancements to the property will attract meeting planners and business travelers who appreciate the hotel’s prime location,” said Brian Comes, General Manager. “With the construction of Lucas Oil Stadium and Convention Center expansion, the investment will support the developments being made throughout the city and improve Hyatt’s already strong presence in the market.”

The new Hyatt Regency Indianapolis will offer even more space options for meeting planners with the creation of an 8,000 square foot ballroom with a magnificent atrium foyer. Located on the third floor, this flexible, column free space will accommodate up to 1,300 people and will complement the current Regency Ballroom’s 9,400 square feet.

In addition to the ballroom, four new meeting rooms will be created. The two rooms located on the third floor will total 1,430 square feet. Large windows will bring an abundance of natural light and scenic views of the Indiana Repertory Theatre. The second floor rooms will offer an additional 1,750 square feet of meeting space and include an executive boardroom.

An Italian/American restaurant, trendy lounge, and Starbucks® coffee shop will be located on the lobby level. The restaurant will feature an exciting open-air, exhibition kitchen where chefs will showcase their culinary talents at breakfast and lunch. The bar will have a sleek design and feature over 20 plasma television screens for ample viewing. Lounge area seating will create the perfect spot to mix business with pleasure. Finally a full service Starbuck’s coffee shop will offer a variety of flavored coffees, fresh baked goods, fruit and snacks any time of day.

The transformation culminates in the hotel lobby with the installation of new stone flooring, carpeting, and furnishings providing a more contemporary atmosphere with comfortable lounge seating. Additional check-in kiosks will be added in response to current travelers’ demands along with a redesigned front desk. Glass escalators will be installed in the center of the atrium to complete the look of the new lobby.

The renovation is scheduled to start on January 21, 2007 and is due for completion by mid-July. To learn more about this exciting hotel enhancement plan please visit www.indianapolis.hyatt.com.
