Hyatt Regency Water Activity Area

  • Project Location: San Antonio, TX
  • Owner/Client: Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort & Spa
  • Project Description:

The Hyatt Regency Hill Country Resort and Spa is an attractive vacation spot for families across the country. Located in west San Antonio, the resort features hotel rooms and suites, a lazy river, pools, a full-service spa and salon and a new water activity area.

DXS was chosen as basis of design for the new area due to its offering of the highly-efficient Daikin VRV system. The high-quality system is also easy to install, making it ideal for the hotel project. A 3-ton Daikin multi-split system was installed to serve the restaurant and bar prep area as well as the restrooms. The resulting system is efficient and easily concealed, thus keeping the aesthetic appeal of the resort intact.

Hospitality Key Considerations

The best hotel architects, developers and engineers have mastered the balancing act.  They balance eye-pleasing aesthetics with smart operating design.  They balance the comfort of property guests who expect maximum air conditioning flexibility in their individual rooms with the realities of managing operating costs for hundreds of rooms.  And in the case of corporate hotels, they balance the parent company’s design standards with franchisee requirements and local tastes.

DXS helps architects, developers and engineers create hotels that meet all of these needs.  We provide VRF systems that offer maximum end-user flexibility and reduce operating costs while allowing for architectural plans that favor aesthetics over obtrusive mechanical equipment.

Key Considerations

  • Opportunity to reduce overall building construction cost
  • Improved aesthetics because of smaller installation footprint and better space utilization
  • Ability to handle temperature control for hundreds of small spaces
  • Ability to provide a variety of sensors that allow the owner to customize their HVAC system based on their specific needs. Excellent humidity control
  • Central control interface
  • Cost effective
  • Energy efficient
  • Robust training program for maintenance personnel
  • DXS onsite at five key junctures:  onsite training prior to installation, quality control checks during installation, during start-up, 30 days after commissioning for building owner verification, and ongoing training for staff
  • Fast, dependable service and maintenance support after installation
  • Complete inventory of parts and equipment
