For almost half a century, the “Blue Dome” atop the Hyatt Regency Atlanta has been an iconic part of Atlanta’s downtown skyline.
In 1967, the Hyatt Regency Atlanta was opened on Peachtree Street as the world’s first contemporary atrium hotel. Upon opening, the 22-story luxury hotel became one of Atlanta’s most popular attractions and significantly influenced hotel design in the following years.
Underneath the Hyatt Regency’s famous blue dome-shaped structure is Polaris – a revolving lounge and restaurant offering guests panoramic views of the city’s skyline. After being closed for 10 years, Polaris was renovated and reopened in 2014.
