Set along a nature preserve on the upper shores of Tampa Bay, the extensive two-phase renovation at the Grand Hyatt transformed this property to match its equally picturesque locale.
Prior to requesting PDSI’s services on the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay, UBS was balancing financial obligations dependent upon completion of the project and quickly approaching deadlines. One of this project’s many major construction tasks was replacement of the guestroom fan coil units. While typical fan coil replacement usually requires rooms out of service, PDSI identified and created a more efficient work flow, greatly reducing the number of rooms out of service overall. PDSI’s application of extensive construction expertise and coordination effectively relieved the pressures of the project deadlines. PDSI oversaw the complex tasks of the asset improvement, allowing the client to focus on the overall financial performance of the project.
Phase one of this $18.1 million dollar project included 442 guestrooms, including 45 individual villa-style casitas along the property, which received new finishes and a full FF&E package for an updated, fresh design. In addition to a new aesthetic, PDSI also managed a full bathroom renovation with tub to shower conversions in King guestrooms, as well as the major mechanical refurbishment of the guestroom fan coil units. Upon successful completion of phase one, PDSI was asked to stay on board and manage the phase two renovations of the lobby and first floor restaurant and bar, 1823 Kitchen & Bar, which included the relocation of the bar across the lobby for a more ideal fit within the restaurant.
