“Convenient location, noisy AC”
Reviewed 1 March 2012

We stayed here the night before an early flight. The location was superb, just minutes to the airport but not on the flight path. The room was clean and spacious. Of special note was the TV, a bigger-screen unit than usual with an easily-accessible full set of computer and DVD player inputs built into the wall next to the writing desk. There were also four electric outlets within easy reach of the desk. More hotels should provide those things for business people traveling with lots of gadgets.

The big downside was the air conditioner. It was an indoor unit and was located right next to the bed. It didn't have fine-grained enough fan speed settings such that we could set it to a sweet spot where it'd stay on all the time with low airflow. Instead, it kept coming on full blast and shutting off during the night, disturbing our sleep with the loud fan noise.

Breakfast was slightly below par for a hotel at this price but acceptable for a "grab some food quickly before heading to the airport" stay.

Their free wifi at this Hyatt is pretty much useless. I have stayed here at least 3 times so far over the past 6 months, and each time it takes me 1 hour to log into my email, let alone do anything else. I pretty much spend my life in hotels, and the wireless internet here is unmatched anywhere else I have been, in terms of super slow turtle speeds that is. I have leeched off of connections at motel 6, DaysInn, etc and if you compare it to this Hyatt it's like comparing a Rolls Royce to a not even a car, but maybe a lawn mower. So, if you are planning to accomplish much while inside your room, or your hotel for that matter, stay far far away. Else your only alternative is the Starbucks down the road. It's such a shame that management has not addressed this issue, because it's otherwise a really good place to stay at, with a good convenient location. I wouldn't even mind paying $10/day for the wifi, but for God's sake let me have an internet connection. It's more important than a bed in today's day and age.

Besides the fact that their "free" wireless is useless, the AC units are also monsters, and are literally window units that you find in small building 2 star establishments. Thankfully I sleep like a tank, but my girlfriend was not a big fan of those.

We stayed here two nights before a cruise and the AC was so loud! First we were surprised it was an actual AC unit as opposed to central air. The noise was so loud that we ended up having to turn it off on the second night, thank goodness it was not that hot outside!

The room was pretty standard, however, a beer bottle was left in the window sill! I have no clue how housekeeping could have missed that. The complimentary breakfast was average, but beware because most guests here are cruisers and the lobby becomes packed beyond belief by 10am on days cruises are departing Port Everglades.

It was in a good area, in walking distance to a shopping complex which had some restaurants and shops. The only saving grace is the front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. If you must, one night is fine but I would not pay over $60-$70 for it...

I like this whole Hyatt concept along with the Hyatt House across the street as the rooms and service are modern and spare and the value is quite good yet it has everything you really need. I go to Fla. quite often to visit family and these hotels are convenient and there is a breakfast included, nothing gourmet, but it's comes in handy, along with a small bar/snack area to purchase a glass of wine or salad. There is free wifi, always welcome, and a small but well equipped gym and a small pool. The rooms are very comfortable and modern/spare but if you are looking for something near the airport, cruise terminal, beach, or other reasons, this is a good choice. The beach is a short drive away and this isn't a resort in any manner but I find it very comfortable and good value.

The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The hotel was clean and they offered an adequate free breakfast. The hotel is very close to the cruise port. We had rented a car at the airport from Budget and returned it to the Quay shopping center a few blocks away and took Budget's shuttle to the port. Taxis from that distance would not be that expensive. The hotel offers a shuttle to the port but they charge for it. A Publix grocery store is two blocks away. Outback Steakhouse adjourns the property. It is a very convenient choice when taking a cruise whether you have your own vehicle or not.

Booked on Priceline. I was worried as most of the reviews I read were not good. We stayed 2 nights pre-cruise. Loved the hotel and location. I found the staff to be very friendly and accommodating. We didn't use the hotel shuttle at all as we had friends pick us up at the airport, and we took a taxi to the port. Our room was very clean, everything worked properly (note: as most people say, the air conditioner was noisy but not to the point where it bothered us being able to sleep). The room is a nice size and layout was great. We ate complimentary continental breakfast there each morning. It was more than adequate for us. Some of the selections: huge bowls of fresh fruit (pineapple, grapes, melon), also apples, bananas and oranges, biscuits and gravy, yogurt, toast, bagels, cereals, juices and coffee. The pool: I never saw anyone in the pool but we did sit out several times to get some sun. I looked close to see if it was clean..it was. Location: This is the biggest selling point. You have a shopping area right there across the street. There is a Publix, Wine Warehouse, at least 6 nail salons AND a 5 Guys. There is also an Outback which is 2 bldgs down from the hotel. We took the sun trolley (picks up in front of Publix) and went to Los Olas Blvd..loads of stores but to rich for us. We did find a Cheesecake Factory there!

Room Tip: We had room 616. Not a view of the port but we could see the tops of a couple of the cruise ships...
