“Wonderful Stay!”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

My husband and I stayed at the Hyatt for just one night, but would have happily stayed longer if we could have. The hotel has a beautiful pool and is in a great location, close to the shops and restaurants around Main Street. Richard checked us in, and was very friendly and gave us a wonderful room on the 7th floor. We had lots of water views, a balcony, and the room was really large! The vanity and shower areas were lovely, and the room was quiet and clean. We needed foam pillows due to a down allergy, and after we called the front desk they were brought to our door within minutes. There happened to be a wedding, prom, and 3-day long birthday party for a 90 year old (good for him!) going on in the hotel the night we arrived, so it was a bit crazy downstairs near all the banquet facilities and bars/restaurants, so we stayed away and I can't comment on those amenities, but the noise and business didn't travel to the 7th floor, which was lovely.

We stay at this hotel every year and it is just fabulous. The staff is courteous, very helpful and friendly. The rooms are fairly large and beautiful, especially the upper floors overlooking the small marina and large walk-in pool. The beds are extremely comfortable. The large walk-in pool is also relaxing along with a poolside bar. Would highly recommend this hotel to everyone.

There were also problems. When we made our reservations for two rooms, we had family come in from up North, we were not told there was a large group of over 100 visitors staying that weekend. At 3:00 PM on Saturday, we were told we had to leave the pool area because this large group had a private party. Really bad since we were guests also, and for the price of these rooms, and not being able to use the pool in the heat of the day, was ridiculous. My advise is to ask if anything like this is happening before you make your final reservation, we sure will.

We had a great lunch at the restaurant but the diner was not as good. Only ordered salads since we were still full from lunch and the heat of the day. The salads were expensive and almost nothing on the plate. Usually in the past this was not the case. Would not plan on dinner there again.

Room Tip: Checked 4 stars for value only because the lunch was very good but would give dinner 2 stars since i...

I am little late writing a review but still had to share my AMAZING experience staying at the Hyatt. It was our 1st anniversary and wasn’t sure if we would be bored since it was our 3rd time back. Because Carmel and the General Manager Bruce McDonald made our last 2 visits so GREAT, we decided to go for our special weekend. That was the BEST choice we made. Once again, Carmel and Bruce McDonald made us feel so special. On night one, we had champagne and strawberries with a note waiting on us in our room. Then on day two we saw our favorite pool girl Carmel and she also sent champagne and strawberries on our second night. Just made our 1st anniversary special especially when they go out of their way to make the moment memorable. You don’t find too many places like that anymore. I can’t say enough GREAT things about the Hyatt hotel. The rooms are super clean with a great view and you can hear the waterfall at night when you are sitting out on your balcony. We travel a lot and I can’t find anywhere that has such an AMAZING waterfall pool like the Hyatt plus the staff is so friendly and helpful. We don’t even want to leave to go to the beach. Our 2nd Anniversary is coming up and our plans are to go to the Hyatt because we know we will leave happy and relax!!! Oh and can’t wait to try out the marshmallow pit One more thing... They have a shuttle that will take you to the downtown area to eat and pick you up,... Def a HUGE plus!!

Room Tip: Any rooms facing the bay with a balcony. You won't be disappointed especially since you can hear...

My husband and i had booked our honeymoon at a different hotel which went very bad and by 4AM we were fed up with all the problems. We checked out and drove over to the Hyatt Regency and were immediately so impressed by how gorgeous it was. The waterfall in the front entrance and the beautiful lobby were so nice to encounter after our terrible experience a the other hotel. When we reached the front desk ANDREW helped us so much, i couldn't believe how awesome he was! He told us congratulations and was just so so sweet. We paid for a standard room and he surprised us wit an upgrade to the penthouse suite. We were in shocked when we walked in, my husband nearly cried which is rare! Andrew also sent up wine and chocolate covered strawberries the next day. He truly was a life saver as our honeymoon would have been ruined without him. The suite was incredible and impeccably clean, we could not have asked for a better experience! the pool was perfect like everything else, and the entire staff was so very friendly. And we will DEFINITELY be coming back!

Room Tip: Penthouse suite all the way for couples!

Pros: convenient location, attractive lobby, nice pool with faux waterfall that's really pretty. Rooms are nice, staff was nice and helpful. On site restaurant was good. Parking lot was convenient. Some rooms have good water and city views. Comfortable beds. Nice rooms.

Cons: overpriced compared to comparable properties in the area. They charge a daily "resort fee" on top of the quoted room rate, which is mandatory even if you won't use the things supposedly included with the resort fee. Pillows are not comfortable - they are overstuffed and super plump. Some of the views in rooms are of ugly parking lots, etc.

Check-in and check-out were easy for me, but some members of my family had a long wait and big mix-up when they checked in.

Overall, I can't say too much bad about this hotel, but you can stay at just-as-nice properties in the area for much less.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We engineered the resort fee inclusions so that all of our guests can find value in it eg. not everyone will use the water sports but may enjoy the eater and internet in the guestroom. What could we have added to the package that would have made you feel comfortable and seen value int he resort fee? We hope to have you back soon and please reach out to me with any suggestions.

We stayed 4/24 because I had tickets to Van Wezel Theatre production just an easy block walk away. We also found the 10 minute walk to downtown and many restaurants easy, but I'm sure we'd "cab" it in the middle of Florida summer. Like prior reviewer bar nothing special - we did go up for happy hour to find the place deserted, but with a very friendly, pleasant, helpful bartender and staff. Not much of a view and sometimes loud because it's completely in the lobby area. We later found it busy with many folks there for convention/banquet room events. Front desk staff very helpful, patient with our questions. We spent the night on our boat in the small, very protected, quiet marina. I am being specific because we did not have to pay for parking or any other amenities, just the boat slip. Compared to many other marinas in Sarasota area their pricing was a good value. Additionally their dockmaster Tim was very helpful and knowledgeable about how to tie up a boat safely, properly, and not trying to hold the stanchions (bending them) - I had no hesitations throwing him lines, whereas most times we just assume dock ourselves. We're not pool people, but nice if you had a family, huge nice pool area with a hot tub - if that is "your thing". I understood they had showers, but we have our own on the boat so cannot attest to how those were, HOWEVER, my husband did go & visit the gym which he found very clean, ample to do his exercises. If we ever visit again by boat we would stay here again.

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. I'm glad Tim was able to assist you properly and it was to your satisfaction. Our engineering and housekeeping staff work tirelessly to maintain out hotel and when guests comment on the cleanliness and state of the hotel, it is very rewarding because our staff does care about the facility and the overall experience of guests just like you and your husband. We hope to see you again soon whether you come by sea of land.

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!!
