This month, notable Southern California hotel, Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego, has completed the renovation of its 1,628 guestrooms after a 13-month project beginning spring 2012, making them the newest hotel rooms on the San Diego Bay.

The hotel has also debuted a brand new Executive Club Lounge on the 33rd floor Grand Club Level. The next phase of the renovation for the tallest waterfront building on the west coast will include revamping its meeting facilities, lounges, restaurants and public spaces.MANCHESTER GRAND HYATT SAN DIEGO RENOVATED ROOM

Led by the vision of owners, Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc., and inspired by the location, the new guest rooms combine “Californiacoastal” with a sophisticated contemporary design featuring floor-to-ceiling windows that open to allow in fresh sea breezes, sweeping bay and city views, a 46-inch flatscreen TV, signature Grand Beds with plush bedding and luxurious June Jacobsbath amenities. The goal of design firm, WATG, was to create a more urban environment inspired by the structure of the nearbyCoronado Bridge. The hallway corridors create the idea of transferring to a destination highlighted by a color accent. The room furnishings reinforce straight line elements with structure and cross bracing details in a rich espresso wood tone complemented by warm taupe, bronze tones and deep navy blues. Walk-in showers were also installed in several rooms to allow guests the option for either a shower or bathtub. Another dramatic change was the removal of heavy, window drapery and the installation of new vertically opening shades intending to increase the level of natural light and enhance the exceptional views, making them a primary feature of the room.

Guests on the Grand Club Level will enjoy an unparalleled experience with access to a newly-remodeled, Exclusive Club Lounge — a private refuge 33 floors above sea level. With colors and patterns inspired by San Diego’s U.S.S. Midway, guests will revel in this unique space with a personal concierge, complimentary food and non-alcoholic beverages, private workstations and breathtaking views of the San Diego Bay and city skyline. The Lounge is complimentary for guests of the Grand Club Level, but can be accessed by all other guests with a $75 upgrade.

“We’re extremely pleased with the completion of the first phase of the renovation,” said John Schafer, vice president, managing director, Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego. “The updated appearance of the guest rooms elevates the exceptional service and amenities provided to our guests and serves as a wonderful testament to what we can expect as we continue the hotel’s dramatic enhancements in future phases.”

“Not only is San Diego a top vacation and business travel destination, it is also one of Host’s key markets,” said Minaz Abji, executive vice president, asset management, Host Hotels & Resorts, Inc. “We will continue to work with the Manchester Grand Hyatt San Diego team to make this hotel a premier destination on the west coast.”

In addition to the renovation at the Manchester Grand Hyatt, San Diego’s waterfront is welcoming change with the immense expansion of the San Diego Convention Center. And the former San Diego Police headquarters neighboring the hotel will also reopen October 2013 as “The Headquarters,” an open-air lifestyle and retail center.
