The gripes: On a hot day in July, the elevators are warm. (a/c doesn't reach 'em). This hotel could use a hot tub and a slightly larger gym. There are some mighty large bees in the flowers alongside the pool. The a/c is a wall unit rather than central.
The terrific stuff: Absolutely everything else!
The Hyatt Place is listed as a three-star, but size is the only thing that sets this apart from most of the top Marriotts and Hiltons I've been to. This is a wildly stylish, sharp, superbly run property.
The decor is West Coast hip, with a hint of Southwest and a bigger hint of Asia. Lots of single-color pottery/scultpure, L.A.-style lighting and furniture, even edgy/sleek plateware in the breakfast buffet. Brilliant lobby: The front desk doubles as a restaurant counter, and they have hot food available 24 hours. The staff is wonderfully cheerful and helpful; Val, who checked me in, should be a chainwide trainer for reception staff. Truly a hospitable, warm welcome.
Free in-room wifi, free business center Internet with free printing, superb continental breakfast with upscale fresh fruit, in-room safe & robes, & ironing supplies & hair dryer & small fridge. Huge flat-screen TV with a ton of auxiliary source hookups available.
Smartly designed room sets the king bed off in the back behind a sort of quarter-width Japanese-style wall/screen ... the huge front area is an L-shaped couch with ottoman, a work desk with excellent chair, and the kitchen area. The effect is spaciousness, but without wasted room.
Intelligence is shown throughout the layout and furnishing; the result is a feeling of a small suite with done with modern but impeccable taste. A boutique atmosphere, but without any of the silly frilly stuff - or the snide attitude.
A small 24-7 gym is on the ground floor, and a nice heated outdoor pool with sundeck is just beyond the south door. (the staff said they're already working on the bee problem). Immaculate, quiet, very guest-oriented ... I truly did not want to check out. At this price range, the Hyatt Place Mystic is a bargain & a joy at the same time.
