In Colorado, people are serious about their outdoor activities. Skiing, rock climbing, mountain biking, hiking — the list goes on and on.


It only makes sense, then, that the Grand Hyatt Denver would pay extra attention to this detail during its current renovations. The result is the Skycourt, Denver’s only outdoor rooftop jogging track and tennis court overlooking the skyline (it also happens to include shuffleboard and fitness stations). The track adjoins an indoor pool and the hotel’s 24-hour health club, both of which are free and open only to Hyatt guests. According to Greg Leonard, the hotel’s general manager, the track only makes sense. “The sun shines 300 days a year here, and guests really enjoy the milder, crisper temperatures, even in the winter months,” Leonard says. “This will be a year-round facility.”
