Hyatt Regency Penn’s Landing Renovates, Unfortunately Unable To Do Anything About The 14-Lane Asphalt Canyon Separating It From The Rest Of The City

hyatt regency penn's landing philadelphiaPhilly hotels are certainly getting their shit together. Seemingly everyone is renovating, no doubt in hope of staying competitive with the onslaught of new hotel properties opening up in Philadelphia in the next two years. (Hello, Hotel Palomar Philadelphia — we especially can’t wait to see you in action.)

The Hyatt Regency Penn’s Landing is only the most recent to do so.
Hyatt Regency Philadelphia, the only Philadelphia hotel located on the historic waterfront, has announced the completion of a comprehensive, $8-million renovation project that includes the transformation of all 350 guestrooms and 24,000 square feet of meeting space.
[…]
“We have a fantastic product that matches our stunning river front views,” said General Manager Julie Coker. “Our new rooms not only meet the needs of our business traveler but will also appeal to our weekend leisure guest.”
Leisure is where it’s at.
At the center of the transformation are new guestrooms designed with warm hues of chocolate, sky blue and beige. All rooms are fitted with the signature Hyatt Grand Bed complete with a pillow-top mattress, soft white duvet cover and plush pillows.

Sleek work desks have been added with wall-mounted, plug-n-play consoles for accessible Wi-Fi Internet connectivity. Dark wood furnishings, leather lounge chairs, contemporary lighting and 32-inch LCD, flat panel televisions complete the new room style. Guestroom baths include a spacious shower, a glamorous, marble-top vanity and stunning city or water views.
And we have to give a shout out to Keating’s. After all, it’s in prime position to take advantage of the forthcoming improvements coming to Penn’s Landing courtesy of the brand new Delaware Waterfront Corporation.
Additionally, Keating’s River Grill, Hyatt Regency Philadelphia’s signature restaurant, transforms the outdoor terrace into a cosmopolitan dining venue. Situated directly on the Delaware River waterfront, Terrace features upscale tapas style cuisine and contemporary lounge furnishings with a vibrant color scheme. Guests can enjoy breathtaking views of the Delaware while taking in the perfectly landscaped Penn’s Landing surrounding.
Sounds delightful.

Unfortunately, they chose not to put a restaurant near or on the top floor where the view would be unparalleled and the restaurant would be a destination even if the food were only average.
