“Best stay ever!”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

My husband and I used up some loyalty points and spent 4 nights here. I was a bit concerned that by staying for "free", we would encounter less desired rooms and service. I was totally mistaken. I really liked the on-line check in process and notification via email that our room was ready for us. No worries about showing up early and having to wait around. We qualified for 'resort' status and that is a treat. We had a lovely complimentary cocktail upon check in and headed to our room. It was on the 7th floor with a view of the marina. The room was nicely updated, and EXTREMELY CLEAN! Now that is a treat right there. Comfortable bed, nice little deck and view of the pool. And a quiet a/c system. In fact, the hotel was very quiet overall. Now we were there from Tuesday - Saturday so we had the luxury of fewer guests staying. We could hear a door closing now and then but being right across from the elevator did not increase our noise level at all. Only thing I would have added was a make-up/shaving mirror in the sink area. Also had a large, large closet. And that's just the room.....free kayak, paddle boards and peddle boats and bicycles. Nice swimming pool, with a most wonderful waterfall. Hot tub was also good. We had food and drinks at the swimming pool area, sat by the fire pit, sat near the indoor bar and people watched and simply enjoyed everything about it. Self parking is free and convenient. But the best thing about this property is the people. Every person we encountered was extremely pleasant and helpful. The staff (valet, front desk, bartender, housekeeper, recreation guy, etc) all seemed happy and it seemed genuine. This is a place we will happily visit again. Location also can't be beat. Just a few minutes to Lido Beach, St. Armond's Circle, Siesta Key, numerous restaurants, and more!

Room Tip: I think rooms on a higher floor will have the better view.

We were planning on meeting friends in Orlando and came in a few days early to check out Sarasota. We loved the friendliness of the staff and had a blast fishing off the dock. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The rooms were spacious and the housekeeping staff did an excellent job each day. We loved the pool as well.

The Staff went out of their way to be welcoming and helpful. At the end of our visit I asked for the manager and passed along the wonderful service we received. I actually received a Thank You E-Mail from the head of their Housekeeping Department for acknowledging their staff. I really appreciated that.

Stay here....You will love it.

Room Tip: I would choose a higher floor to enjoy the beautiful views.

Hyatt Regency has a great location on the water! The resort fee includes use of paddleboards, kayaks, and other water toys...this was an unexpected surprise! Bathrooms need updating or at least a fan but the big plus was the staff at the hotel who went out of their way to send an item that I had mistakenly left at the hotel...guest service gets 5 stars for the follow up..thanks.

The people who work at this hotel were very nice and well trained. Unfortunately this place is showing it's age and needs to be updated.

The plumbing was noisy and the shower temperature seemed to have a mind of its own. The walls were rather this and normal noise volumes from our neighbors were too easy to hear.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel.

The exterior shows some signs of aging but the remodel on the interior is beautiful. Our room was clean and bright. Perhaps the greatest asset is the service at this location. Tommy at check-in was awesome. Ivan in food services went above and beyond. Pool area was loved by our son. Strongly considering staying here again.

Room Tip: High floor overlooking the Bay was amazing.

Stayed here for a work conference and even though I didn't jump in, the pool with it's cascading waterfall was probably the coolest hotel pool I've seen. It is a fairly large pool and very accommodating for many people.

The hotel itself was on par with most Hyatts, nothing overly fancy. The room was nice and clean as was the bathroom and the rest of the hotel. The conference accommodations were very spacious and the staff seemed to help everything run fairly seamless.

We did take the shuttle to Lido Beach and that was a nice addition to our stay, being able to take a shuttle for free. I must say that Giancarlo(?), the new guy was very cool, he was always upbeat and was more than willing to help.
