Multi-Million Dollar, Full-Scale Renovation Underway for Hyatt Regency Deerfield Slated for Completion April 2019

USA, Deerfield, Illinois. February 11, 2019

Phase one of a multi-million dollar, full-scale renovation is underway on the Hyatt Regency Deerfield, a luxury, full-service hotel located just minutes from downtown Chicago and O'Hare International Airport. The project caters to the Hyatt Regency brand loyalists' desire for 24/7 connectivity and comfort with 300 completely revamped guestrooms and suites, refreshed, tech-enabled meeting space, updated common areas including guestroom hallways, and lobby, as well as the property's signature restaurant and bar, Jaxx Bistro and Jaxx Lounge. Phase one, which includes a $14 million redo of all guestrooms, is slated for completion by April 2019, while phase two commences in the fall of 2019, and will include the remainder of the interior enhancements. The property will remain open during renovation.

The goal of the project is to elevate the overall business travel experience through the marriage of clean, functional, and modern design elements, and the upgraded amenities that make transitioning to remote travel seamless and more enjoyable. Each guestroom will be fitted with all-new entertainment centers, built-in custom closets, desks, and sleeper sofas. The custom, built-in design components include a multi-purpose bench, which can be used as a luggage rack, for seating, or for additional storage. Each room features a giant, 65” Smart TV, perfect for displaying dynamic business presentations during the day, and at night, creating an in-room theater-inspired experience for the latest plug-n-play technology. The all-new bathrooms will also receive floor-to-ceiling makeovers including walk-in showers and custom vanities.

The overall design aesthetic, imagined by Chicago-based The Gettys Group, is inspired by the surrounding rivers that helped define the Village of Deerfield, as well as its conceptual elements. The interiors will be fresh and energetic, marrying timeless architectural details with smart artistic elements evocative of the region's prevalent scientific community. The new guestrooms, which will undergo a complete overhaul, will feature a combination of textures, and reflective and natural materials in a palette of grey tones, punctuated with sparks of color. The palette and textural elements are woven throughout the common areas and 20,000 square feet of flexible meeting space including two ballrooms, two boardrooms, 16 meeting rooms, and pre-function space to create a cohesive sensory experience throughout the hotel.

Hyatt Regency Deerfield is owned by Phoenix Development and managed by Texas-based Aimbridge Hospitality. Leopardo is the project's general contractor.

Eco-Friendly Practices: Corporate Social Responsibility

The hotel industry has undertaken a long-term effort to build more responsible and socially conscious businesses. What began with small efforts to reduce waste - such as paperless checkouts and refillable soap dispensers - has evolved into an international movement toward implementing sustainable development practices. In addition to establishing themselves as good corporate citizens, adopting eco-friendly practices is sound business for hotels. According to a recent report from Deloitte, 95% of business travelers believe the hotel industry should be undertaking “green” initiatives, and Millennials are twice as likely to support brands with strong management of environmental and social issues. Given these conclusions, hotels are continuing to innovate in the areas of environmental sustainability. For example, one leading hotel chain has designed special elevators that collect kinetic energy from the moving lift and in the process, they have reduced their energy consumption by 50%  over conventional elevators. Also, they installed an advanced air conditioning system which employs a magnetic mechanical system that makes them more energy efficient. Other hotels are installing Intelligent Building Systems which monitor and control temperatures in rooms, common areas and swimming pools, as well as ventilation and cold water systems. Some hotels are installing Electric Vehicle charging stations, planting rooftop gardens, implementing stringent recycling programs, and insisting on the use of biodegradable materials. Another trend is the creation of Green Teams within a hotel's operation that are tasked to implement earth-friendly practices and manage budgets for green projects. Some hotels have even gone so far as to curtail or eliminate room service, believing that keeping the kitchen open 24/7 isn't terribly sustainable. The May issue of the Hotel Business Review will document what some hotels are doing to integrate sustainable practices into their operations and how they are benefiting from them.
