In the Gallery, or public space, guests are greeted by a Gallery Host who can assist them with everything from check-in to preparing a freshly made meal or snack.  The Gallery also features two self- registration kiosks, a 24-hour Guest Kitchen, Bakery Café, a coffee and wine bar and an e-room offering public computers and a printer.

Jason Gregorek, director of development for Hyatt, and King Scovell, Woodbine’s director of Hyatt Place development, represented the Hyatt-Woodbine partnership in the transaction. Les Newton, president of Planned Community Developers, represented PCD.
