New and renovated properties in Florida, California and Chicago.
Hyatt Place and Hyatt House Tampa Downtown, Florida
The 17-story building just across from Tampa’s city hall offers guests a unique layout with a single lobby serving both the 230-room Hyatt Place and the 115-room Hyatt House. Design harkens to the area’s Havana influences, with jewel and citrus shades, tropical leaf motifs and vintage Cuban movie posters. The property has 3,600 sq. ft. of event space, a heated rooftop pool, fitness center and lobby floor restaurant. Its proximity to downtown Tampa, Tampa Convention Center and Tampa Riverwalk is a further plus.
Sable at Navy Pier, Curio Collection by Hilton, Chicago
Just opened as the 100th Curio Collection property, the new hotel brings 223 guest rooms with floor-to-ceiling windows and views of Lake Michigan in a nautical styling that celebrates the city’s historic pier. The property was designed with three separate towers so guests hosting events can reserve an entire wing of the property for ease and privacy. For meetings, 43,000 sq. ft. of event space is on offer. Dine on crab maki rolls and craft cocktails on site at Offshore, recognized by Guinness Book of World Records as the largest rooftop and bar.
Novotel Miami Brickell, Florida
This downtown property recently revitalized the lobby, restaurant and rooftop bar with upgraded furniture and decor, including redesigned arrangements that allows guests to choose their level of comfortable distancing. The lobby greets with midcentury inspiration in hues of blush, greys and rust that bring the nearby beach’s warmth and water to mind. Succulents, planters, velvet and ottomans all lend texture and flexibility to the refreshed common areas. Six meeting rooms, plus a 2,070-square-foot Skyline Ballroom provide for small to medium gatherings.
Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel, California
The Dana Point oceanfront resort recently upgraded all 396 luxury guest rooms and suites as well as its Ritz-Carlton Club Level Lounge. The refresh was undertaken by Wimberly Interiors, which also designed Ritz-Carlton Naples and JW Marriott Casablanca in Morocco. The oceanic redesign encompasses all, from shell-colored carpet and crisp grey and blue walls to a new “floating” entertainment center. Every room or suite has a private patio or balcony with views of the sparkling shore or lush gardens. The resort has 56,000 sq. ft. of outdoor event space with seaside views, plus 26,000 sq. ft of indoor meeting options.
