$10 Million Update of Guestrooms and Lobby; Wireless Internet Now Available in Guestrooms and Public Spaces Throughout Hotel

Hyatt Regency Wind Watch unveiled the completion of its $10.2 million renovation campaign today, making it one of the premier properties on Long Island.

The renovation project included all of the hotel's 358 guestrooms, baths and suites along with the guestroom corridors, the hotel's lobby area and technology upgrades.

“We look forward to welcoming back former guests and inviting new customers to experience the Hyatt Regency Wind Watch. The transformation has been spectacular and we are thrilled to offer a beautiful new hotel. Our newly appointed guestrooms combined with the additional enhancements we made during the renovation offer guests a hotel product that is second to none in the area” said Mark Pardue, general manager, Hyatt Regency Wind Watch.

The guestrooms have been completely refurbished to capture a contemporary residential décor featuring an earth tone color palette, rich wood and leather furnishings, elegant accessories and artwork. Each guestroom now offers Hyatt’s Grand Bed, featuring a Sealy Posturepedic ® 720 Series thick pillow top mattress, triple sheeting, fluffy duvet and oversized down pillows for a great night’s rest. A comfortable casual chair and leather ottoman with adjacent side table and reading lamp provide relaxation in absolute comfort. An oversized desk with built in electrical outlets and the addition of wireless Internet access offer guests the ability to stay productive while traveling.

The guestroom baths were completely updated to compliment the guestroom. The mahogany vanity with imported granite top provides ample storage for towels and amenities. An elegantly framed mirror and decorative light fixture offers enhanced lighting and visibility. The bathrooms are appointed with high-end Speakman showerheads for an invigorating shower experience. Imported marble tile flooring and shower surrounds, along with new wall coverings complete the bathroom design.

Hyatt Regency Wind Watch’s distinctive lobby was updated with new seating areas, a dramatic floor-to-ceiling framed mirror feature and artwork depicting the resort-like feel of the property. A customer-friendly concierge desk was created to better serve guest's needs, while wireless Internet has been expanded to all public areas in order for guests to stay connected.

In addition to the hotel’s flexible meeting space, the new Terrace Ballroom boasts a two-story soaring atrium, ideal for both corporate and social functions.

Located in a stunning resort-like setting, the 360-room Hyatt Regency Wind Watch offers the best of both worlds with access to New York City and all of Long Island as a great getaway location.
