It’s not very often that a hotel completely closes its doors, especially during the summer tourist season, but the Hyatt in Crystal City has done just that to allow for major renovations to the front of the hotel.
A reconstruction of the front entrance, the hotel lobby, and the parking garage entrance is underway. For major construction, it’s taking place at a speedy pace — the hotel is scheduled to reopen on Friday, we’re told.
Work is also being done to the front of an office building across the street. For a while, the sidewalks on either side of the road were closed to allow for the simultaneous construction projects. That created a dangerous situation for pedestrians at the time, but the sidewalk in front of the office building has since reopened.
