MORRIS COUNTY — Hyatt Regency Morristown, one of the area’s premier downtown hotels for business and leisure travelers, unveils a reimagined hotel experience following a multimillion-dollar renovation. Designed by Gensler, a global architecture and design firm with a Morristown office, the hotel debuts today a complete transformation of the property’s guestrooms, lobby, food, and beverage offerings, and indoor meeting spaces. The property is located in the center of Headquarters Plaza, which is a multifaceted mixed-use development comprised of the hotel, three office towers, a gym, restaurants, and covered parking, owned by the Olnick Organization and Fisher Development Associates.
“We are thrilled to announce the completion of an extensive renovation project at our downtown hotel,” said Jeff Babcock, general manager of Hyatt Regency Morristown. “The renovation was thoughtfully designed by Gensler, our neighbors here in downtown Morristown, to incorporate the unique and rich history of our local area. The newly renovated property features a modern colonial theme, which can be observed throughout all aspects of the property. We can’t wait to introduce the reimagined Hyatt Regency Morristown experience to both travelers and the local community.”
Lobby and Public Spaces
The hotel’s lobby has been redesigned to incorporate distinctive elements of Morristown’s unique history. Two Mediterranean-inspired trees are the focal points upon arrival inside the hotel’s main entrance, which is backdropped by a dramatic fireplace fixture and lush greenery. The public spaces have also been outfitted with modern furnishings that feature brass tones and various shades of blue, symbolic of officer uniforms from the American Revolution. The refreshed lobby area also includes new carpeting, lighting, and artwork.
Food and Beverage Offerings
Hyatt Regency Morristown’s revamped dining experience includes an updated lounge with evening food service and a new grab-n-go food market and café offering a variety of healthy and hearty snacks. The lounge has been completely transformed to provide an open and spacious seating area featuring 30-foot windows that provide expansive views of downtown. In addition, the hotel bar has been reoriented to face the entryway and offers updated seating and lighting to create a welcoming atmosphere.
“To create an accessible, hospitality-driven destination for both guests and the Morristown community, we reimagined how the lobby can be experienced and enjoyed throughout the day,” said Siobhan Barry, design director at Gensler. “The café is now part of a new grab-n-go food market, and the lobby bar is relocated closer to the street for better visibility and ample natural light. The interior reflects Morristown’s revolutionary ties with a modern colonial aesthetic.”
Guestrooms and Corridors
Distinctive hallway carpeting designed to mimic the topography of New Jersey farmlands leads guests to their rooms. The hotel’s double rooms have been converted to queen rooms with two queen beds, and king bedrooms have been outfitted with modern glass showers. The guestrooms also feature a “show closet,” a luxury, open concept closet with concealed lighting, in addition to contemporized bathrooms. The hotel’s 50 studio suites were redesigned to provide more spacious accommodations with comfortable and well-appointed seating areas including sleeper sofas.
Meeting and Event Spaces
The property’s 31,000-square feet of conference space has also been updated, including flexible meeting rooms and the Terrace and Plaza Ballrooms. Groups will also have the availability to host events at a brand-new outdoor venue at the adjacent Pioneer Park courtyard beginning in April 2022. The hotel’s former restaurant was also converted into a new meeting venue and all spaces include updated lighting, new furniture, and modern artwork.
Nearby Proximity to Premier Attractions
In addition to the updated accommodations and guest experiences available at Hyatt Regency Morristown, the hotel is in close proximity to more than 40 restaurants, shopping, and entertainment venues. The hotel also offers guests complimentary access to the adjacent Crunch Fitness, one of the largest fitness facilities in Morristown, with state-of-the-art cardio and weight equipment.
Several nearby attractions also showcase the area’s history. Travelers can experience Fosterfields Living Historical Farms, a 200-acre farm that produces a historical reenactment of farm life as it was done more than 100 years ago. Just a short drive away is the Schuyler-Hamilton House, the Historical Speedwell, and the Morristown National Historical Park, which features George Washington’s headquarters and more than 24 miles of hiking trails that explore the area. The property is only a 30-minute drive from Newark Liberty International Airport and a one-hour train ride to New York City.
