Hyatt Hotels has opened the renovated Hyatt Regency Barcelona Tower, a 280-room hotel in the gateway to the Spanish city’s new financial district.

Linking travelers between Barcelona’s international airport and city center, the hotel opening represents the second Hyatt Regency branded property in Spain.

It has been designed by architect Richard Rogers, who is known for his work on the Pompidou Centre in Paris, the Millennium Dome in London, and the European Court of Human Rights building in Strasbourg.

The 344-foot high and 29-story tower features a glass dome, thereby offering the top-floor restaurant with views of the city.

Hyatt Regency Barcelona Tower general manager Guzman Muela said: “Grounded in Hyatt’s purpose to care for guests, we are proud to grow the Hyatt Regency brand in Barcelona with the opening of Hyatt Regency Barcelona Tower.

“Rich culture and world-renowned architecture have ensured Barcelona as a desirable locale where our guests want to stay. Meanwhile, the hotel’s location, just minutes from the Fira Gran Via Congress Center, the vibrant meeting spaces and dining options allow us to cater to business travelers’ needs.”

Out of the 280 contemporary rooms, 41 are suites, one is a Presidential Suite, while 12 are duplex suites. All the rooms offer views of the city skyline.

The hotel’s Terrum restaurant offers seasonal items on the menu; the Axis Bar provides cocktails and a variety of snacks and sandwiches; and the Azimut Restaurant offers a daily breakfast buffet with healthy options.

Hyatt Regency Barcelona Tower provides a variety of event and meeting spaces, including a 500-seat auditorium.

Managed by HesperiaWorld, Hyatt Regency Barcelona Tower was rebranded from Hotel Hesperia Barcelona Tower.

It is the fifth Hyatt hotel to open in Spain, alongside Hyatt Regency Hesperia Madrid, Hyatt Centric Gran Vía Madrid, Hotel SOFIA Barcelona and Park Hyatt Mallorca.
