Hyatt Regency San Francisco is a resort situated at the foot of Market Road and The Embarcadero in the economic district of San Francisco, California. The resort is a section of the Embarcadero Centre progress by Trammell Crow, David Rockefeller, and John Portman.
The setting up was marketed by its owner, Strategic Lodge Cash LLC, in January 2007 for near to US$200 million to Dune Cash Management and DiNapoli Cash Associates – approximately $250,000 for just about every of the hotel’s 802 rooms.
The Regency Club Lounge was as soon as the Equinox, a rooftop revolving cafe, but is now a stationary elite club for specific resort visitors presenting 360-diploma sights of the town and the bay.
The Hyatt Regency’s atrium lobby served as the lobby of the Glass Tower in 1974’s The Towering Inferno. Replicas of John Portman’s trademark tablet-formed elevators had been created for use in the movie and are featured in the course of, including in an prolonged sequence the place one is lifted from the stricken tower by helicopter. The Lodge was also featured in the 1977 Mel Brooks Comedy Significant Nervousness, the movie Telefon from 1977, and in Time Right after Time (1979 movie), a tale of H.G. Wells chasing Jack The Ripper into the long term of 1979.
As very well as remaining a placing for a lot of films, the lobby is by itself influenced by a movie. Architect John Portman has said that its layout was advised to him by viewing the 1935 science fiction movie Factors to Appear.
