Conveniently situated in the heart of downtown, the Phoenix Arizona hotel's new guest rooms were designed with an eye towards sleek modern southwest luxury. The new color scheme is a layering of earth tones, including celery, tangerine and sunset.

A granite- topped credenza houses a new 37-inch flat screen TV and iHome stereo with iPod docking stations. Guest bathrooms have been upgraded to a new contemporary scheme with granite top counters, new rain forest showerheads and curved shower rods with new wall coverings. All corridors are re-carpeted to compliment the new guest rooms.

The downtown Phoenix hotel's new lobby is the focal point of the transformation, offering a sleek modern urban Southwest retreat for guests designed by Gensler. The lobby now offers living lounge areas with flat screen TVs, a Cyber Café and Business Lounge. The check-in process is more engaging for guests with new pod stations and flat screen laptops.

"We are thrilled to have completed the transformation and enhancements. We have brought an entirely new level of design to Hyatt Regency Phoenix; a sleek yet comfortable experience for our existing and new customers," said Murray Burnett, general manager of the Phoenix hotel. "Whether guests are visiting Phoenix for business or pleasure, they can unwind with all of the contemporary design and amenities today's travelers crave most."
