Touch Down at Hyatt Regency Calgary for Grey Cup Fun

Celebrate in style at the heart of Calgary's Grey Cup Festivities

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 18, 2009) - Hyatt Regency Calgary is proud to announce their participation in the 2009 Grey Cup downtown festivities with a variety of special events taking place at the hotel between Thursday, November 26 and Sunday, November 29.

"As host of the 2009 Grey Cup, both our city and hotel are known for unbeatable hospitality," says Keith Butz, General Manager. "No matter what team you're cheering for, Hyatt Regency Calgary will be the place to enjoy great food, drinks and service, either inside at Thomsons Restaurant and Sandstone Lounge, or outside in our heated festival tent."

Hyatt Regency Calgary's Grey Cup tent will open Thursday, November 26 and will stay up through to game day on Sunday, November 29. The heated tent will feature multiple plasma screen TVs to watch all the sports action and unique Alberta-inspired lounge cuisine prepared by Thomsons Restaurant Chef de Cuisine James Morin, including grilled bison whiskey sausage, Angus burgers and hickory smoked pulled pork.

Conveniently located on Stephen Avenue Walk, Hyatt Regency Calgary is at the centre of the city's football festivities, and steps away from the Grey Cup parade taking place on Saturday, November 28. Throughout the entire Grey Cup Festival, the tent, restaurants and lobby area will be open to guests and the general public.

Fans feeling stressed about the big game can relieve their anxiety by booking a treatment at Stillwater Spa, located in the hotel, or discuss game strategy while enjoying their own "Catch of the Day" at Catch Restaurant, located adjacent to the hotel.

In addition to hosting a number of CFL and Grey Cup Committee guests, Hyatt Regency Calgary is also the host venue of the Athletes in Action 31st Annual Grey Cup Breakfast on Saturday, November 28 and the city's largest canvas for ENMAX Illuminate Calgary, a spectacular visual light display taking place on Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28.
