Lobby has been closed since Hurricane Irma flooding.
The Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront on Wednesday reopened its lobby entrance on Coastline Drive.
The lobby had been closed since floodiing from Hurricane Irma damaged the hotel in September, with guests having to check in on the second floor.
Cory Baum, director of sales and marketing for the hotel, said renovations continue, with work expected to be completed this year. He would not give a timetable.
“We are excited to be back in these spaces,” Baum said.
The designer for the lobby is HVS Design, headquartered in Washington, D.C.
The hotel also is adding a grab-and-go market near the elevators and registration desk.
The 19-floor, 951-room hotel at 225 Coastline Drive E. is owned by MCSW JAC Hospitality LLC, in care of Westmont Hospitality Group of Houston.
