Opened in 2005, the 37-floor Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center was the first high-rise built in downtown Denver in 20 years. The 1,100-room hotel is situated on a full city block directly across from the Colorado Convention Center. It contains 60,600 SF of function space; a 300-person, three-meal restaurant; coffee shop; first-floor lobby bar; and a 27th-floor lounge that features panoramic mountain views. The parking area consists of three levels of subterranean parking accommodating approximately 600 cars. The 66-foot base for the tower, or podium, includes the main lobby, restaurant, guest services on the ground level, with conference facilities on levels 3 and 4. Level 5 contains a health club with an indoor lap pool and hospitality suites with outdoor terraces. The exterior materials on the podium consist of limestone, granite and zinc cladding, and the towers are clad in architectural pre-cast concrete panels and zinc.
