Hyatt Regency Indianapolis completed the first phase of its multimillion-dollar renovation, which includes the opening of its completely renovated revolving rooftop restaurant, The Eagle’s Nest as well as completion of a redesign of the hotel’s more than 35,000 square feet of meeting and event spaces, ground floor restaurants, lobby and fitness center.

Managed by Columbia Sussex, the 499-room hotel is connected to the Indiana Convention Center and located steps from the downtown sites, including Lucas Oil Stadium and Circle Centre Mall.

The hotel’s renovation is inspired by the city’s history in jazz, whose musical movements and fluid forms mimic the city’s notorious need for speed.

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.

The newly-redesigned Eagle’s Nest—which has been named among the Top 10 Most Romantic Restaurants in Indiana and Top 50 Most Romantic Restaurants in the U.S.— is the state’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 space that features stunning panoramic views of the downtown skyline.

As part of the first phase of its renovation, Hyatt Regency Indianapolis introduces more than 35,000 square feet of completely redesigned conference space and meeting rooms.

The hotel features a 9,400-square-foot ballroom that can accommodate up to 1,100 guests.

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-square-foot Studio Lounge have been entirely redesigned to improve functionality and create more open floorplans.

In direct response to feedback from meeting attendees, the hotel has also added several smaller breakout spaces throughout its conference areas to encourage small group meetings and brainstorming sessions.

Additionally, the hotel offers professional event planners, innovative catering, audiovisual equipment, and business services that will elevate the occasion.

Upon arrival to Hyatt Regency Indianapolis, guests will notice the newly redesigned lobby area, which has been updated with all-new flooring, furniture, modern lighting and decor.

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.

The new restaurant’s chef-driven menu highlights a modern take on classic Midwest diner fare.

Additionally, with the first phase of the hotel’s redesign, the Level One lounge has been updated to provide a modern, chic atmosphere featuring handmade cocktails and small plates.

As part of the renovation, additional seating for groups was added to the dining room, which has created a more family-friendly environment within the lounge.

The newly designed on-site StayFit Fitness Center offers each guest an opportunity to enhance their stay and keep active with state-of-the-art equipment in a calm and contemporary environment.

The Fitness Center features all new equipment, including Precor Cardio machines and is complimentary for guest use.

Additionally, Hyatt Regency Indianapolis offers guests an on-site fitness concierge to assist with equipment needs and provide detailed maps of local running and walking trails.
