The Hyatt Regency Phoenix is a convention hotel in Downtown Phoenix, Arizona, United States. It is 317 feet (97 m) tall and has 24 floors. It was completed in 1976. The top floor has a revolving restaurant. It was designed by Charles Luckman and Associates to complement the Phoenix Civic Plaza (now called Phoenix Convention Center) and Phoenix Symphony Hall. The hotel's façade is clad in textured split ribbed concrete block.

The hotel lobby and restaurants occupy the main level. The second floor features meeting rooms and an additional restaurant while an atrium rises 8 stories. Floors 9 through 21 house guest rooms. Floors 22 and 23 house mechanical equipment and are called "the neck of the Compass". The Compass Restaurant sits atop the hotel on floor 24. The Compass is Arizona's only revolving restaurant. The elevator bank offers two enclosed guest elevators and three "scenic elevators", which glide upward from the lobby, through the atrium and, finally, on the building's exterior, offering amazing views of Phoenix.
