On a blustery Saturday last week, D. and I had an errand to do in San Francisco, and since we didn't want to wander around in the wind and rain afterwards, we decided to wander around inside the Hyatt Regency Hotel instead, and I took some pics.
The lobby is dominated by the sculpture Eclipse by Charles Perry, bathed in pink light.
Theatrical lighting trained on the sculpture changes color every few seconds, resulting in an ever-changing light show. Here's a detail of Eclipse in gold light.
The lobby has a water feature in it.
Burgundy light shines on Eclipse in the background.
Upper floors of the hotel loom inward over the lobby.
Lobby seating alcoves, with green light in the background.

Looking up at the narrow skylight. It's one of the reasons it's so dark and cave-like in the lobby.
