MONTEREY, CA (March 30, 2021) — Today, Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa unveils its property-wide transformation. The Monterey Bay icon completed a 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 region’s largest conference hotel with more than 40,000 square feet of meeting space and 560 guestrooms, has also added an array of outdoor amenities, including a hammock garden, outdoor lounge with fire pits, enhanced walking paths, and arrival experience.
“We are extremely proud to welcome guests to experience the reinvigorated Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa,” said Kevin Ellis, general manager. “The renovation restores the legacy of this iconic hotel through a distinctive design transformation and inviting outdoor amenities. Honoring the rich history of the property, Hyatt Regency Monterey pays homage to California’s natural beauty, golfing culture and Route 1 drive for the quintessential Monterey experience.”
Coastal Craftsman Design
The hotel partnered with San Francisco-based design firm Gensler to reinvent this iconic 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 560 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. The design for Hyatt Regency Monterey offers an experience that takes full advantage of its unique site and provides a welcome respite and a calm sense of renewal.
Inspired Food & Beverage
Under the culinary direction of executive chef Dan Elinan, Hyatt Regency Monterey Hotel & Spa has introduced several new dining concepts. Central Coast Provisions, the open coffee-bar concept, fuels guests daily with rich Starbucks® coffee, pressed juices, and an array of fresh-baked pastries. The hotel’s signature restaurant, Sea Root, debuts spring 2021, highlighting Monterey’s bounty along with a rich medley of coastal Mediterranean-inspired dishes such as crudo, tuna tartar, and spiced lamb shank with a craft cocktail menu stirred up with a twist, such as cardamom or rose petals. “Roam Service” offers guests the freedom to order food and have it delivered wherever they are on property, whether it is a frosty Mai Tai by the pool or hot chocolate and s’mores for fire-pit stargazing.
Additionally, Knuckles Sports Bar will re-open in fall 2021. The most popular sports bar for the past 17 years and locals’ favorite, has a refreshed menu offering a relaxing atmosphere to watch a game or grab a beer. Classic drafts are on tap, Bloody Mary’s pack a punch and bar food includes zesty wings, formidable burgers, and fan-favorite foot-long hot dogs.
