First stay, and there was much to like - great view, great location, and despite being right next to the freeway the room (3rd floor, 'mountain' side) was extremely quiet. Some issues though :
1. Access is through a gas station (seriously) and very hard to find for the first time visitor. A sign on the median might be useful.
2. Breakfast buffet had a really good selection, but considering this is a city/state that celebrates diversity, it would be nice if just one of the hot items could be meatless. If carnivores get three choices, can't vegetarians be given at least one ? (Other hotels can do this, so why not Hyatt ?)
3. The hotel is smoke free, which is great, but many of the staff weren't, and it seems the rear door area (where most of the parking is) has become the "smoker's lounge". Tacky. And very smelly. If you're pitching to smoke-free guests, how about a non-smoking staff ?
4. Not a deal-breaker, but for a hew hotel some of the decor just seemed very...70's...y'know ? Surprising
Other than that, great room, great view, good price. All told, a good stay.
Oh, and a very big plus - TWO free morning papers : Wall St. Journal and USA Today. Nice
