“"Great Hotel, Great Service, Great Location"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2011

This was my first stay at a Hyatt Place hotel. Our family group (4 adults, one child, 1 enfant) stayed here while visiting the nearby Siesta Key public beach (one of the "top 10" in the nation). Entering the hotel I was struck by the welcoming feel and nice decor. After a quick check-in by efficient staff, I was given briefing and tour of many of the common areas and guest amenities. This includes ample parking, free wi-fi throughout hotel, guest computer area, guest pantry, small bar and 24-hour food service area that offers small meals and Starbucks coffee, "Grab-and-Go" food items, pool and sauna, daily hot breakfast (with additional breakfast items for sale). The clean rooms were well appointed with comfortable beds, compact refrigerator, small office desk area, and "42" flat screen TV. The highlight of our visit was the very helpful staff. Every need was anticipated and every request (including room changes to better accomodate our group) were handled promptly and efficiently. If you're looking for a great hotel with great staff and prime location, this is a place to seriously consider.

Room Tip: The one king room w/adjoining double queen room is perfect for a large family (5-8) group

While on a week in Florida my partner and I stayed here for 3 nights when we were in Sarasota. This is a great Hyatt Place. It's near the airport but everything is so close in Sarasota. It takes maybe 10-15 minutes to drive to Siesta Key, and even less to go to the downtown Sarasota area and main shopping area (can't remember what it's called at the moment but it's the big tourist spot). It's a no frills hotel, you check yourself in but there's free breakfast and wifi which was actually really fast unlike at the Hyatt Place in Fort Lauderdale. Overall great experience and would highly recommend.

The rooms are great because they all have a separate bar type area with a mini fridge and a sink with a desk for work etc. The TVs are all LCD and have the great Hyatt Plug on the side which easily lets you connect literally any type of device to it from an iPod to Laptop.

We enjoyed staying at this Hyatt Place. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean and spacious. We had two adjoining rooms which made it perfect for the kids to sleep/play in one room, while we were in the other room.
Having a free breakfast at the hotel was convenient: cereals, bagels, fresh fruit, and yogurt were offered every morning. You could also order eggs or waffles for an extra charge.
The pool was clean and easily accessible. We were a bit farther from the beach than we wanted to be, so we considered going to another hotel closer to the beach. After a couple of days though, we decided to stay: the drive wasn't too bad and moving didn't outweigh the pros of a huge room and free breakfast.
The hotel also has laundry rooms on the 2nd and 3rd floor. I would recommend bringing some detergent from home or buying some from a store. The hotel offers detergent for $1.50, but it's a small box and it's powder.
Two staff members were particularly helpful: Carmelo, who seemed to be the manager or supervisor (he also made my son's eggs every morning) and Paul, who seemed to do everything else: make cappuccinos, check in guests, help with breakfast. They were friendly and made our stay even more pleasant.

Room Tip: For a family, ask about adjoining rooms. We stayed on the first floor which made it easy to get to t...

This hotel supposedly brews Starbucks coffee, but I drink Starbucks coffee often and have never tasted any this bad. Several times we complained about it, and the second day a manager brewed us an ok cup at our insistence, apparently brewing the coffee much stronger, but the staff still didn't seem interested until the morning we were checking out, when the manager brewed another fairly decent pot of coffee and gave us a complimentary cup (big deal-- after having to drive to McDonald's all week for decent coffee).
The room was large but uncomfortably laid out for most travelers; it looked like it should have been used for business meetings, since half the space was fairly open with a large couch against the wall, a desk for a computer, and a small bar area. The beds were tucked behind a light divider, with the sink right in front of the beds, a tiny bathroom and probably a 2 foot closet, where about 1 foot was visible. The room was fairly clean, beds were comfortable, the a/c worked ok, but the complimentary breakfast was unremarkable at best, no eggs, just cereal, toast, mixed fruit, warm milk, and that lousy coffee. Eggs and other foods were available at extra cost however.
We also had a laughable (or frustrating, depending on your mood) mix-up with the billing of our room. Since we had gone to Sarasota for a wedding, we received 3 days discount for the wedding rate and then were to be charged a slightly higher price for the next 2 days. Hotels often have differing rates depending on days of the week, so we didn't think anything about it. However, on the day that we were to be charged the higher amount, we were called by the front desk no fewer than 3 times to physically go to the front desk to validate this change and affirm that we were staying there for the extra 2 days at the higher price.
The day we left the manager did seem to care that we may have had some concerns, but the attitude of some of the other staff during our stay could best be described as "disinterested". In other words, I felt that this hotel is not one that "pampers" their guests, but it was comfortable and clean.

The hotel overall was great considering the price but I would not recommend staying here if you are a light sleeper. We were awakened at 3:00 am to some loud guys partying in the next room over. Then, later that am, we were awakened again by some very loud children. Prob a good place for business travelers, but not for leisure. Also, the hotel should really consider putting tile around the sinks instead of the carpet that is there now.....

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our hotel! We sincerely apologize for the noise disturbance you received from other guests. It is not fun to be awaken in the middle of the night by unwanted noise and you deserve every right to get a great night's sleep when staying with us! We would suggest in the future, if you had not done so already, that you immediately notify staff of such an experience so that we may resolve the situation.

We hope to welcome you back as our guest in the future and please consider staying at other Hyatt Place hotels when traveling!

Stayed 2 nights for a family wedding- party of 15. staff was always pleasant and accomodating. motel was very clean, attention to detail. complimentary breakfast was pleasing to all - nice dishes - unlike some chains where you are gicen styroforam plates, cups, plastic utensils. always a variety of food to purchase if one so chooses. in walking distance of the airport. close driving distance to st armands circle and lido beach. could not have asked for a nicer place to stay for such a happy occasion. thank you hyatt place for contributing to an awesome family celebration

Had 2 king rooms at this hotel for 3 nights, with my parents in the neighboring room. Large and spacious room with a comfortable corner sofa - with plenty of room for all 4 of us to lounge around. Quiet hotel, with very friendly staff, great breakfast and good facilities.
The Good: Spacious room, loved the lounge area, and the room facilities were great, big TV, mini fridge, nice tea/coffee maker. Breakfast was good, large selection or cereals, fruit, yogurts, juice and bread/bagels/pastries and the dining area was nice, plenty of tables etc. Also hot choices for a charge, which is a good option to have. Very good wifi, with a strong connection around the hotel.
The Average: Pool/hot tub - pretty standard for this sort of hotel . . . but a decent number of loungers and they did provide towels.
The Bad: Noisy A/C - not too bad in March as we were able to turn of the unit to sleep, without the room getting too hot during the night, but I wouldn't like to try that in August! Also the shower/toilet area was small (you had to squeeze in beside the toilet to be able to close the door), and dark (more lights/brighter lights please!).
