DEARBORN (WWJ) – The former Dearborn Hyatt Regency hotel finally has a new name and a new management team.
Atmosphere Hospitality Management says the 14-story hotel, along the Southfield Freeway near Michigan Avenue, will reopen Thursday as the Adoba Hotel Dearborn/Detroit.
The future of the 772-room hotel was in limbo after the Hyatt Group said earlier this year that it was ending its long-running relationship with the venue.
Adrienne Pumphrey, Atmosphere’s executive vice president of sales and marketing, said the new company will try to keep as many of the 322 Hyatt Regency Dearborn employees as it can.
Atmosphere signed an agreement to buy the hotel from Royal Realties LLC by Dec. 31. Royal Realties bought the hotel last year. At the time, Hyatt Hotels Corp. agreed to manage the hotel. This past May, however, Hyatt announced that it would no longer manage the hotel after its current contract expires Oct. 31.
News of the new operator comes weeks after a deal between Royal Realties and Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group, which had agreed to operate the hotel under the Radisson moniker, fell apart in early October.
