Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa in California unveiled its property-wide transformation that includes: 560 redesigned guestrooms and suites; reimagined public spaces; the addition of Central Coast Provisions, the hotel’s new market; and Sea Root Restaurant and Hearth, the signature restaurant opening in spring 2021. The hotel also added an array of outdoor amenities, including a hammock garden, outdoor lounge with fire pits, and enhanced walking paths.
San Francisco-based design firm Gensler was tapped to reinvent the hotel. Inspired by Monterey’s natural landscape and the hotel’s own architectural features reminiscent of Craftsman design (especially Frank Lloyd Wright’s movement), the hotel’s renovation blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces. Rolling sand dunes, deep green cypress trees, mixed with welcoming social spaces echo a warm coastal Craftsman style beloved along California’s rugged central coast.
The redesign established a clear line of sight from the front entry to the golf course, and the warm hearth to the bar, connecting the guest to an experience of relaxation. The warm textures and colors of each of the guestrooms reflect the fog, flora, and fauna iconic to the region. Taking cues from Craftsman woodwork, the rooms are rich in special detailing and warm textures.
