The Hyatt at The Bellevue, the latest of Philadelphia's iconic hotels to undergo a multi-million dollar renovation, will soon unveil its new look.
The new design, led by Marguerite Rodgers Interior Design of Philadelphia, includes refreshed guest rooms and new public spaces at the hotel on the Avenue of the Arts in Center City.
Rooms and suites will feature earthy tones with pops of color, and a contemporary take on 18th century furnishings. The designers worked with Opera Philadelphia, Walnut Street Theatre and Pennsylvania Ballet and other local artistic and cultural organizations incorporate elements of each into the interior. Floors will have a different theme and the hallways will feature costume and scenic design renderings from the archives of organizations. Room walls be decorated with original artwork by local artists, plus vintage Philadelphia photography and hand-drawn sheets of music.
“We are very excited to debut the refreshed Hyatt at the Bellevue,” said general manager Pina Purpero in a statement. “The hotel and the area itself have a rich history and vibrant culture that will be reflected in the new design and in all the Philadelphia-themed art decorating the walls. The new room design will offer modern touches while still maintaining the hotel’s classic history and character. Marguerite Rodgers’ talented team did an excellent job bringing our vision to fruition. We’re looking forward to an exciting new chapter for the hotel and to continue to exceed expectations for our guests.”
