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.

Food & Beverage: New Technological Innovations

In the past few years, hotel food and beverage departments have experienced significant growth. Managers are realizing just how much revenue potential this sector holds, both in terms of additional revenue and as a means to enhance the guest experience. As a result, substantial investments are being made in F&B operations as a way to satisfy hotel guests but also to keep pace with the competition. Though it has been a trend for many years, the Farm-to-Table movement shows no signs of abating. Hotel chains are abandoning corporate restaurants and are instead partnering with local chefs to create locally-influenced dining options. Local, farm-sourced ingredients paired with specialty beverages or local wine also satisfies the increasing demand from Millennial travelers who are eager to travel sustainably and contribute to a positive impact. A farm-to-table F&B program also helps to support the local economy, which builds community goodwill. Also popular are "Self-Serv" and "Grab & Go" options. These concepts stem from an awareness that a guest's time is limited and if a hotel can supply them with fast, fresh, food and beverage choices, then so much the better for them. Plus, by placing these specialty kiosks in areas that might be traditionally under-utilized (the lobby, for instance), they can become popular destination locations. Of course, there are new technological innovations as well. In-room, on-screen menus allow guests to order from any restaurant on the property, and some hotels are partnering with delivery companies that make it possible for guests to order food from any restaurant in the area. Also, many hotels are implementing in-room, voice-activated devices, so ordering food via an AI-powered assistant will soon become mainstream as well. The August issue of the Hotel Business Review will report on these developments and document what some leading hotels are doing to expand this area of their business.
