The Hyatt Regency Salt Lake City is a full-service hotel with direct connection to the Salt Palace Convention Center. Prior to its completion in October 2022, Salt Lake City needed a true Convention Hotel to attract and retain large conventions. With its 25-story guest tower reflecting the Wasatch and Oquirrh Mountains, and downtown urban landscape, this landmark project places Salt Lake City among the other top North American destination cities. The project includes 700 guestrooms, over 60,000 SF of meeting space, a luxurious lobby, 24-hour fitness center, multiple restaurants and bars, a gourmet market, rooftop swimming pool and event terrace, and underground parking.
FFKR worked closely with the core and shell design firm Portman Architects from Schematic Design through Construction. Our scope of work as the Local Architect included all permitting and approvals, selective demolition and interface with the Salt Palace Convention Center, Architect of Record for the guest tower, and quality control of the project through all phases of design. Our expertise in working with complex stakeholders and clear understanding of Salt Lake City’s approval process allowed the Contractor to secure the five separate/phased permits ahead of schedule.

Connection to Salt Palace Convention Center
Construction of the Hotel required partial demolition of the Salt Palace Convention Center pre-function space. This allowed for reconfiguration of the south entrance of the Convention Center to provide a seamless tie-in to the Hotel while maintaining the Convention Center’s iconic “Salt Shaker” entrance from underground. parking.
