Kid's Suites and New Restaurant and Bar among the Additions

Hyatt Regency Orange County, formally Hyatt Regency Alicante, has completed the first phase of a $40 million expansion and renovation which features a new guestroom tower with dedicated Kid's suites and meeting space, the addition of a new restaurant and bar, and a totally renovated atrium lobby.

The Hyatt has added a 258-room wing, the North Tower, bringing the hotel's total number of guestrooms and suites to 654. An attractive feature for families, the North Tower offers 87 dedicated Kid's suites, a first for Hyatt hotels. The Kid's suites are decorated in a fun aquatic pattern and include a bunk bed and kid-size table with chairs. Each of the Kid's suites connects via a living room area to the guestroom for the parents. The North Tower guestrooms are elegantly appointed but provide a comfortable atmosphere. The rooms feature floor to ceiling windows creating a light and airy feel.

The hotel's 17-story atrium lobby has been completely remodeled using marble and granite complimented by rich wood and brushed metallic finishes creating a contemporary look. The front desk has been redesigned and is located in the middle of the lobby providing a natural flow between the two guestroom towers.
