Hyatt invest £6m in Birmingham hotel

The luxury, 319-bedroom Hyatt Regency hotel in Birmingham is nearing completion of a £6m refurbishment.

New-look bedrooms, eight conference rooms and the ballroom are already completed, while the restaurant and bar are set to re-launch during the summer.

The new bar is being styled on a traditional tavern with a contemporary twist with a menu reflecting Birmingham's strong Asian influences and pub classics..

Located on Bridge Street opposite the International Convention Centre (ICC), the hotel was acquired out of administration by the Hyatt Hotels Corporation in 2012 for nearly £27m. Hyatt was one of the original co-owners of the property, which opened in 1990.

Mario Flanagan, general manager of the Hyatt Regency Birmingham, said the launch of the hotel had helped pave the way for a quarter of a century of redevelopment improvements in the city.

"This major investment is a significant vote of confidence in Birmingham by Hyatt and will see the hotel maintain its position alongside some of the very best hotels in the country."

Hyatt Hotels Corporation manage, franchise, owns and develops hotels and resorts under nine brands (Hyatt, Park Hyatt, Andaz, Grand Hyatt, Hyatt Regency, Hyatt Place, Hyatt House, Hyatt Zilara and Hyatt Ziva). It currently has 554 properties in 47 countries.
