Hyatt Regency San Francisco‘s striking Regency Club Lounge has recently undergone a top-to-bottom refurbishment.
The exclusive, top floor lounge features 360-degree, panoramic views of the San Francisco Bay and city skyline – views which inspired the new redesign.
The upscale design concept by Looney & Associates, deemed “Urban Reflections,” derived from the mirrored reflections throughout the surrounding landscape.
With the Bay Bridge mirrored in the water and the Financial District’s modern architecture reflected across high-rise windows, the Regency Club encourages guests to turn their focus outward.
“We are proud to reintroduce the stunning Regency Club here at Hyatt Regency San Francisco,” says Matthew Humphreys, GM. “In designing the interior space around the magnificent views, we were able to provide a comfortable, elegant space where guests can truly take in the splendor of the Bay.”
The updated furnishings and luxurious finishes reference the building’s bold architecture and the era in which the lounge was initially conceived, while reinvigorating the space with a sophisticated, modern flair.
Designed with the recent lobby redesign in mind, the Regency Club Lounge evokes a calmer, sleeker feel as a superior destination for the hotel’s executive guests. With dedicated dining, business, and relaxation spaces, the renovation maximized seating to accommodate a variety of guest interactions.
While retaining the existing bronze mirror-clad walls from its former mid-century modern design, the Regency Club lobby received brand new light fixtures, plush benches, a custom carpet inspired by a Rorschach watercolor, and a floating, large-scale landscape of San Francisco to revitalize the entryway.
The bookcase was refinished with a herringbone accent wallcovering and filled with books and playful accessories, giving it a warm, personal touch.
The central buffet area was expanded to promote easier flow of traffic, with globe light fixtures along the new focal point-a custom wood screen. This unique divider, inspired by the city’s skyline, adds a soft barrier between the buffet and dining areas without detracting from the dramatic views.
The bi-level space is reminiscent of a sunken living room, while a plaid, embroidered wallpaper adds subtle texture along the curved core wall. A new stone-top dining bar-with integrated charging outlets – gives Club level guests a prime vantage point as they dine, work, or socialize.
White porcelain tile, modern wood cabinetry, and neutral carpeting also brighten up the lounge, and eye-catching works by local artists are thoughtfully curated within the circular space.
