The 516-room Grand Hyatt Denver and 1,100-room Hyatt Regency Denver at Colorado Convention Center, both in the city's downtown section, are renovating their meeting spaces, including a total of four large ballrooms, at a combined cost of $10 million. The Grand Hyatt Denver's 52,600 square feet of conference space will be modernized with new floor and wall coverings in gray and sunset-rust tones. The property features the 8,369-square-foot Imperial Ballroom and the 5,906-square-foot Grand Ballroom, as well as the 38th-floor Pinnacle Club. Its amenities include guest rooms with free Wi-Fi, well-lit work stations and Hyatt's Grand Bed; a rooftop jogging track and tennis court; an indoor pool that adjoins a 24-hour health club; and the Pub 17 on Welton Street, serving three meals a day and 50 Colorado craft beers on its menu.

The Hyatt Regency Denver's 60,600 square feet of meeting space, including the 30,000-square-foot Centennial Ballroom and the 14,000-square-foot Capitol Ballroom, will get a new look with textures and colors from the Rocky Mountains. The hotel's foyer will become more functional with furnishings that can be configured for a variety of seating styles. Adjacent to the Colorado Convention Center, the guest rooms feature LCD Smart 46-inch TVs and free high-speed Internet. The 6,700-square-foot fitness center overlooks the 14th Street Theater District and features Spa Universaire, an indoor lap-pool, an outdoor sun deck and a whirlpool. For dining and drinks, guests enjoy Altitude Restaurant, the lobby's Strata Bar and the 27th-floor Peaks Lounge.
