The Hyatt Place is Hyatt's newish 4 star concept. The Al Rigga Dubai is my only experience with this new Hyatt line. It felt very boutique-y but I don't think that they are positioning as a boutique.
In fact it's hard to tell what the targeted segment is. Nonetheless the service was top notch Hyatt quality, and the amenities as well were great. The rooms are huge and if not luxurious, then definitely tasteful. The A/C is amazing.
The gym and pool are very nice, and the breakfast is a great spread. The fact that breakfast and Wi-Fi are included is a very nice touch.
The biggest challenge is the location. It's in a dead zone for taxis. One must wait a very long time or, just go to the street and get a taxi. Which in the summer heat can be unbearable. Or, one can take a hotel car which is going to be about 50% more than a taxi.
But the location is nice for night life, which one doesn't see a lot in Dubai. It is lively after dark with interesting local restaurants, coffee shops and local bakeries.
Bottom line is that for the price of a lower 4 star one is getting five start treatment and lovely amenities. I will definitely return.
