Spent a WE here as a "getaway" between business trips. Wanted a stress-free, relaxing weekend and the Hyatt more than delivered. From the minute you enter the lobby to the minute you (unfortunately have to) leave, it is understated luxury at its finest.
Check in was quick. The concierge was extremely helpful regarding restaurant choices and things to do on a Saturday afternoon. Every question was answered; every request immediately fulfilled.
Chose a Club room which was more than large enough for a single person. With two, it could be a bit cozy if you spend much time there. The bathroom was very modern with a shower and separate soaking tub -- and the toilet in another room entirely. Even the floors were heated! The bathroom amenities are first-rate and the room has a safe, mini-bar, and almost everything else you could think to want.
The Club lounge is terrific and the staff there could not be more pleasant (even when some loud and obnoxious American businessmen tried to take over the place). There is a European style breakfast (no eggs) in the morning with many choices among meat, cheese, fruit, breads, salmon, etc. In the evening the hors d'hoeuvres are enough for a meal and there are many choices in alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverage -- the latter available all day.
Tried the spa and it too was wonderful. There is a huge jacuzzi, as well as a sauna and steam room. The treatments were excellent and personalized. I had laundry done and it was on time and beautifully presented.
Yes, the hotel is a good mile from the AlteStadt -- the old city and popular tourist destination. However, unless it's pouring rain or freezing cold, it makes a nice walk along the river or you can take a short taxi ride. Unless you really need to be closer to town, it's more than fine and the view from the hotel is wonderful. There are also plenty of places to eat less than 5 minutes walk from the hotel.
Any negatives? Just a few nits. It would be nice if the bathrobes were a bit larger as they are a bit skimpy for the big and tall. The bill was confusing -- things added and subtracted such that it was hard to figure out what exactly was charged; in the end, the final amount was fine, just difficult to comprehend. Finally, no one mentioned the 15 Euro/day food/beverage charge for the Club level until checkout. The price is certainly reasonable for what you get but it definitely wasn't made clear up front and should be (maybe it's broken out of the total room charge but, again, the bill is confusing in that respect as it appears as a separate charge).
Overall, this is a fantastic place for business travelers but also makes a perfect getaway WE for couples or friends or even the solo traveler.
