Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, one of Orlando’s great landmark resorts, has broken ground on a new, 25,000-square-foot ballroom that will add 32,000 square feet of pre-function and event space at the 1,500-acre property, doubling the current ballroom space.
With its expansion, the resort will offer a total of 102,000 square feet of flexible meeting space comprised of two ballrooms, exhibit space, pre-function space, 45 meeting rooms and outdoor venues suitable for groups of 10 to 1,000. The resort’s new ballroom project is scheduled to be completed by fall 2019.
The new ballroom will include unique customizable LED lighting functions. The adjacent pre-function space will provide panoramas of the resort’s lush landscaping and ease of access to the outdoors. Additionally, a large purpose built formal event lawn will be connected to the new ballroom and will serve as a venue for such events as an outdoor awards dinners and upscale receptions or afternoon team-building events.
“Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress features innovative design within a welcoming resort atmosphere,” said Paul Joseph, general manager, Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress. “We will soon have the space to create even more spectacular events to meet the needs of meeting planners, conference attendees and social event guests.”
With 90 percent of the meeting and event space located on the convention floor, guests have easy access to parking and resort restaurants and amenities.
The meeting and event space expansion follows the completion of a $10 million guestroom renovation that offers an innovative mix of comfort and convenience for business and guests.
“At Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress, we seamlessly blend the surroundings of a tropical oasis with the functionality of productive meetings and conventions at this very special property,” Joseph said. “While much of the resort offers a leisure vacation experience, we want to reward our loyal guests with new experiences and capture group customers who need more function space than we were able to provide in the past.”
Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress offers six food and beverage experiences, a full-service spa, of the Orlando’s best pool decks and preferred access to 45-holes of Jack Nicklaus signature-designed golf courses.
