Managed by Columbia Sussex, the contemporary 499-room hotel is conveniently connected to the Convention Center and located just steps from the vibrant downtown sites, including Lucas Oil Stadium, Circle Centre Mall and renowned dining destinations. The hotel features modern amenities blended effortlessly with classic design elements, creating a comfortable oasis in the heart of one of the Midwest's most exciting cities. The hotel's renovation is inspired by the city's rich history in jazz, whose musical movements and fluid forms mimic the city's notorious need for speed. Similarly, the hotel's aesthetic is bursting with warm and rich tones that rhythmically come together through visually appealing design elements. The renovation's second phase, which is anticipated to be completed in early 2020, will include guest rooms and suites, the indoor pool and additional public spaces. Phase 1: The Eagle's Nest, Meeting Spaces, Ground Floor Restaurants & Lobby THE EAGLE'S NEST Named among the Top 10 Most Romantic Restaurants in Indiana and Top 50 Most Romantic Restaurants in the U.S., the newly-redesigned Eagle's Nest offers Indiana's only rotating rooftop restaurant. Highlights of the restaurant's top-to-bottom redesign include new flooring, furniture, lighting, artwork, wine display and lighting enhancements. The Eagle's Nest serves classic American cuisine made from fresh locally-sourced ingredients in a captivating space that fea- tures stunning panoramic views of the downtown skyline. Indianapolis locals and guests alike enjoy The Eagle's Nest for all occasions – from romantic evenings out to boisterous cele- bratory meals. MEETING & EVENT SPACE As part of the first phase of its renovation, Hyatt Regency Indianapolis introduces more than 35,000 sq. ft. of completely redesigned state-of-the-art con- ference space and stylish meeting rooms. Located in the heart of the city and connected via skywalk to the Indiana Convention Center, the hotel features a stunning 9,400-sq. ft. ball- room that can accommodate up to 1,100 guests – providing an ideal gathering place for social functions and business events. The renovated meeting and event space is designed to reflect the hotel's contemporary, upscale design with new carpeting, lighting and furniture. Spaces such as the 1,000-sq. ft. Studio Lounge have been entirely redesigned to improve functionality and create more open floor plans. In direct response to feedback from meeting attendees, the hotel has also added several smaller breakout spaces through- out its conference areas to encourage small group meetings and brainstorming sessions. Additionally, the hotel offers profes- sional event planners, innovative catering, audiovisual equip- ment, and business services that will elevate the occasion. GROUND FLOOR RESTAURANTS & LOBBY Upon arrival to Hyatt Regency Indianapolis, guests will notice the newly redesigned lobby area, which has been updat- ed with all-new flooring, furniture, modern lighting and décor. With the renovation, the hotel introduces its newest dining concept, fat Rooster diner, which offers freshly-sourced farm- to-table dining with a casual diner feel. Focused on sourcing the best local Indiana ingredients, the new restaurant's chef-driven menu highlights a modern take on classic Midwest diner fare.
