From the moment we walked into the hotel we were impressed. We were greeted by staff willing to move/park our car etc... Stacey at check in was great. Very personable and friendly and explained everything we wanted to know about the resort. This was a splurge for us for our anniversary and she sent up a bottle of wine and truffles for us. Very impressive and most appreciated.

We had a king balcony with a side water view. Great room. Clean and the bed was very comfortable. The pool was very nice. Unfortunately the weather wasn't very nice so we couldn't take full advantage of the pool area.

Since we stayed two nights I decided to put some clothes in a drawer which I never do. And of course I left them there. I called about 4 hours after we checked out and spoke to Eleanora. She was very helpful and said they have my clothes and they boxed them up and sent them to my home address. I couldn't have been more impressed. I have left various other items at hotels and never have gotten anything back. Thank you very much Eleanora!!

I would definitely recommend this hotel. Other than the weather I couldn't have asked for anything better!!

This is a nice hotel, but nothing spectacular. Restaurant and bar is just okay. Hotel is pricey, yet they charge extra for internet, parking, daily resort fee, water, etc, etc, etc. It gets old. For the price, it should all be included. Front desk was helpful and friendly. Not much to do in the immediate vicinity but downtown is pretty close by.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Last year, we added some activities and value ads and created a Resort Fee. It includes, among other items, standard internet, 2 bottles of water per day kayaking, paddle boarding, pedal boating and biking, . The resort fee is $15 and for most, represents significant value to the point that many reviews we are receiving are saying just that. You are correct in that we charge for valet parking however, we do offer complimentary self parking. I’m not sure exactly why you were not offered this package however we will look into that and please know that moving forward, you will have all of these changes wrapped up into a lower cost Resort Fee. In the meantime, if you would like to reach out to Amer Safar, Dir of Operations, he would be happy to speak with you.

First time in Sarasota having travelled down from Orlando.
The location of the hotel is great within easy reach of good restaurants and shops.
The choice of restaurants nearby diverted us away from the hotels own restaurant although we did sample the evening bar snacks which were good. As a base this area is well situated to explore . venice- longboat and siesta key all within a short drive.

Thanks for making the trip over to the West Coast! Sarasota has the most Zagat rated restaurants per capita in the state of Florida so I can sympathize with your restaurant dilemma, although Currents is really good as well. It sounds like you got out and really did some of the great outings that we offer but there are many more so I hope we can host you again soon. Thanks for the review!

The hotel is located close to most sites in Sarasota like Botanical Gardens, Mote Aquarium, Siesta Key and Turtle Beach as well as very good restaurants on Main Street like Barnicle Bill's.
The hotel recently completed renovations, but the elevator and room are not very clean or pleasant.
The valet people are very friendly and helpful as well the reception girls. The restaurant at this place is very bad as my ribs were burned and dry with a lot of salt and my wife's fish dinner was also very dry and salty. The staff are very friendly and did not charge us for the chef's error. The swimming pool is very nice and the view from out room was nice as well. The cleaning lady does not clean. We had to tell her to clean the dirt off the switches and floor as well as the stains on the counter. She never vacuumed our room so it was very stuffy and difficult to sleep in.

Room Tip: Get a room as high as possible and as far away from the elevator as possible.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. While it doesn't make up for the experience, I'm glad we were able to adjust the restaurant bill to show good faith. This has already been shared with Chef and he has addressed this issue. Housekeeping has also been made aware of the situation you experiencing. We constantly do internal training to ensure our guests have the best experience and feel the authentic hospitality that this hotel and Hyatt Hotels and Resorts strives for at each interaction. This feedback, while troubling, will help us make small the small tweaks necessary to achieve perfection. We hope that you will give us another chance the next time you are in Sarasota.

Hotel was very nice and updated with a cozy, beach flare. Beautiful views of the inter-coastal and bay. Pool was relaxing and beautiful, although not enough seating. This property is conveniently located less than a mile from downtown Sarasota and the marina.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. The location of the hotel is a strong point as you pointed out, we are less than a mile from downtown and have our own private marina that opens up into the bay. We hope to have you back at the hotel soon and thank you for your feedback on the seating. We will review that during our internal meetings.

Family vacation. I invited my sisters and their families on Spring break and we stayed at the Hyatt Regency. Very beautiful hotel. The pool is not to be missed ! We loved kayaking the marina and paddleboating. One cool morning we thoroughly enjoyed playing games in the garden- bocci and corn hole. Very attentive staff, very accommodating to our large group with small children.
Thank you!

Thank you for laying out the different activities we offer here at the hotel. The water sports are somewhat new to the hotel but have been wildly popular. Our pool has also gone through some changes in recent months with upgraded landscaping and in one month, the start of our summer dive in movies! We look forward to hosting you again soon.

We just completed our stay at the Hyatt (4/15-4/18) and had a great trip. We had an early flight and landed at the hotel at noon. We thought we would have to wait for the check-in time, 4:00pm but the front desk checked us in right away. The lobby and rooms are updated which is nice because the outside could use some work. The nice thing about the hotel is that you can walk to downtown and grab a bite to eat. The hotel offers a shuttle during the week to the beach, St. Armand's Circle, and downtown. We would have liked the hotel to have more times for the shuttle throughout the week. The shuttle runs during the week from 1:00, 5:00, and 7:00. A 9:00 or 9:30 would have changed this four star review to five.
St. Armand's Circle is a very nice area with lots of restaurants. We were disappointed with our restaurant selection, VENEZIA. It looked promising because so many people were waiting to be seated. Our food order took over an hour and every table around us was served before us. We were told our meal was taking a while because we ordered pasta entrees and not pizza. We spoke to the manager and he did absolutely nothing. He offered us a glass of wine for the wait, which didn't make sense because I am seven and half months pregnant. Big thumbs down! Please don't give them your business.
If you venture out to Lido's beach make sure you head south on the beach. Walk along the beach and cross over the rocks. The beach looks cleaner and the sand is nicer.
I would also recommend Toasted Mango's for breakfast. It is only a five minute walk and the food is delish.

The Hyatt is in a good location and they were very accommodating. We requested a late check out and they gave us until two o'clock. We would highly recommend this hotel. Be prepared to pay a $15 resort fee. You get two bottles of water, wifi in your room, shuttle service, and kayaks.

*If you are not renting a car, take a taxi to and from the airport. It's a few bucks cheaper than the shuttle.

Thanks for the review and congrats on your pregnancy! While your experience in St Armand's Circle wasn't the best, I'm glad you got out to the beaches and more of Sarasota than most get to. We look forward to having you back soon with the new addition!
