Many popular hotel chains are present in the world, but what makes them popular, the services? or the experiences?. All the multimillion hotel chains do have one thing in common, luxury rooms, on top services and multi-disciplinary areas like spas, pools, gyms and many more. One of these chains was who started with motels and now rates in the top 10 luxurious hotels in the world, Hyatt Hotels.

Hyatt Hotels is a multinational hospitality company, based out of Chicago that runs over 900 resorts, luxury and business hotels, and vacation properties across the globe. The first couple of projects of this chain of hotels was started in the year 1957 in and around San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle and by 1969 it was ready to open up to a worldwide audience.

Since its beginning, the Hyatt group of hotels has maintained consistency in delivering world-class hospitality facilities by presenting a widely accepted and appealing palette of facilities that continue to thrive in the world of luxury and hospitality.

When visiting hotels or resorts, one aspect of design that plays a significant role in catching the attention of visitors is the interior design. The interior design of any space can be a game-changer in deciding whether the space is welcoming enough for the visitors or not. 

And here is how Hyatt Hotels manage to design their interiors and keep their guests satisfied at all times.

1. Less – but better | Hyatt Hotel

This seems to have been the motto for the interiors of all Hyatt Hotels world over since most of the spaces conceived in their facilities seem to carry elegance and simplicity as their identity markers. 

With many spaces in such luxury hospitality facilities bearing the responsibility of catering to a wide range of functions and user groups, all at the same time, the Hyatt Hotels adopted the ‘experiential lens’ wherein care is taken to ensure the best and most comfortable of experiences at every stage of usage of the spaces. 

With this in mind, the interiors are kept simple and easy to comprehend and use. The interiors are free from heavy clusters of furniture and intricate accessories and the lighting is designed in a manner that doesn’t overwhelm the user.

2. Neutral colour palette

By using warm and subtle tones on walls, furniture, and other accessories a sense of calm is maintained. To make the guests feel at home in a place away from home and to convey the idea of effortlessness in the usage of spaces this strategy has been applied across almost all of the Hyatt hotels. 

The solid color blocking of bright and flashy colours is seldom used with more warm, and subtle dark and neutral shades dominating the interiors.

3. The use of natural materials | Hyatt Hotel

This is undoubtedly one of the most striking features of the interiors of Hyatt Hotels. Hyatt Hotels have always managed to bring in elements from the immediate and/or the local climate and culture to make the atmosphere of the hotel as authentic as possible. 

This is seen in the wide usage of wood, stone, and other natural materials that are local to the site of the facility and seems to have a dominating effect on the overall look and feel of the interior spaces in the hotel. 

Along with choosing the materials and finishes in response to local contexts, inspiration for the arrangement and modification of many interior spaces too is drawn from local geographical features and elements alike.

4. Featuring unique pieces of art

As seen in the Hyatt Regency Andares a comfortable usage of elegant art pieces is used to elevate the subtlety and warmness of the interiors. The artworks featured in this particular project are those of César López- Negrete which effortlessly embrace the common spaces and create a language of their own in conveying the idea of calm even in common spaces which can otherwise seem chaotic.

5. Integrating Nature into the interiors | Hyatt Hotel

A common yet important feature of the interiors of Hyatt Hotels is the seamless integration of the outdoors-the greens- and nature to establish and maintain a permanent connection with the outdoor environment. 

As much as one would like to enjoy their privacy in the warm interiors of their guest rooms or entertainment spaces, the entry of elements of nature could enhance the experience and that is exactly what the Hyatt hotels have been doing. Listed below are a few examples from some of their facilities across the world.
