This was a tough one for me-- the way I review is based on the hotel class. So a cheap roadside motel could hypothetically get a better review than a "5*" luxury resort, if one did what it was supposed to do perfectly, and the other failed.
The Hyatt Regency doesn't seem to know which class it falls into. Like all Hyatt properties I've experienced, it was a good stay, perfectly clean room with wonderful customer service.
But it prices and positions itself as a luxury property, and it doesn't quite meet those standards. So my review probably would be that it gets a 4 if you can find a great rate, but it's probably realistically an average 'luxury' property.
What were my complaints? Pretty shallow things, but if I'm paying this much, I expect better. The rooms are very noisy/walls are very thin-- we heard noise from rooms above and next door. There are huge gaps under the front door, so any noise in the corridor comes through clearly. The shower is rubbish-- no water pressure, and it's from directly above which always gets soap in my eyes. You have to phone to request clean sheets and towels (rather than put the card on the bed as in most places). Bath products are the Portico line, same as in their low-end properties, which I hate because they are super drying to the skin.
Again, these are all really shallow. We enjoyed our stay, and liked the location. But I don't know if I would come back, especially at the same price. (not to mention the extortionate parking prices!)
