“Excellent Property, Excellent Staff A+”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

I was thrilled to have chose this hotel over the Ritz (which is right next door). Not only is it less expensive but wow do you get a lot of bang for your buck! Firstly we checked in on my birthday and were given an upgrade to a balcony room over the bay (lovely!) and we were able to check in before noon, great start! The front desk staff were smiley and helpful. there is a $15 Amenity Fee that includes 2 bottles of water, use of all the facilities, wifi and is totally worth it. We kayaked in the bay and spent many hours at the beautiful pool. We will be back again without a doubt, what a great place, thank you Hyatt for helping make my birthday so great!
(the only non 5 star I gave was for sleep as my room was across from the ice machines and elevators and so I was woken a few times throughout the night).

Room Tip: Try a room facing the bay with a high floor away from the ice machines and elevators!

Thank you for such a great review! We are also glad you decided to stay with us as opposed to down the street. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your special birthday weekend and we will be sure to place you away from the elevator on your next stay. Thank you again!

We stayed over a weekend and enjoyed every minute. Our room was on the 8th floor and had a balcony overlooking the Sarasota coastline with views of the Gulf. Several very positive factors: we parked for free in the nearby self-park lot (some spaces were covered!), the room was clean and comfortable, the service was attentive and our room had a wi-fi hotspot in it so that the free connection was instant and strong (why doesn't every hotel do this?).

We lounged by the pool extensively, enjoying the sun, the poolside service and the setting. The pool fronts on a small inlet from the Gulf; several times, manatees swan within easy viewing distance. The hotel charges a $15/day resort fee, which entitles you to free use of paddle boards, bikes and pedal style boats. We took the bikes out Sunday morning and rode south through Marina Jack park and some of the waterfront neighborhoods. (The bikes were easy to get and were in good shape.) We made it back to the hotel for a quick bite by the pool before checking out.

Tommy, one of the managers, helped with dinner reservations both nights. We ate at two wonderful restaurants nearby that cater mostly to locals, and they were fantastic.

All in all, a wonderful weekend retreat - which I highly recommend.

Room Tip: The hotel is perpendicular to the coastline, so rooms on both sides look out parallel to the coast...

Sarasota is relatively small and easy to drive around. The Hyatt, relatively close to the bay, was a good hotel- very nice pool, friendly staff, rooms are very nice, good views, bar was good. Can't really go wrong.

Room Tip: You can get WiFi if you pay the "resort" rate for this hotel. Or you can get complimentary...

The location of this hotel was just what we needed. My boss and I recently stayed here for business and to explore the area. This hotel is located by downtown but is off it's own private street so you do not get the traffic you may expect from a downtown hotel. A short drive from the airport. No beachfront with this hotel but Lido beach is close by.
Modern and bright colors in the lobby, hallways and rooms make for an inviting stay. Rooms were clean. Bed was comfortable so I was able to get a good nights sleep. Bathrooms are small and do not offer much room for more than one person trying to get ready. All staff we encountered were helpful and kind. The balcony option is nice, but they offer very little privacy.

Stayed for three nights with my wife. Our room was on the seventh floor which gave us great views of the coast. The rooms are clean and well appointed and the freeform pool area is very good. Would recommend the cocktail bar located near the pool for snacks and, ofcourse, specialty cocktails. There is a valet parking service ($22 per night!) which I don't think is value for money as the car park is literally a few yards away. There is also a resort fee of $15 per day but this entitles guests to free bicycle hire, kayaks, WIFI etc so is value for money. Would recommend.

Room Tip: High floor for great views and peace and quiet.

This hotel exceeded my expectations in many ways. Firstly, all of the boxes were checked on matters such as cleanliness, in room features, pool, surrounding areas etc. Secondly, the hotel offered additional things such as: a healthy restaurant menu for children (no fries unless requested - something I had been missing during our travels in the US), s'mores around a pit fire for 4 (not healthy, but good fun for a family), well equipped gym etc. I would definitely recommend this hotel both for couples and families. It oes not feel crowded although a big hotel so there is space for everyone. We visited with a 6 and 2 year old.

Room Tip: Ask for bay view. We were given a bay facing room with a closed canopy. If you travel without child...

Great Value for a very nice hotel! The location is great as well! The restaurant at the lobby is probably one of the best you can find in a hotel! Very Clean rooms! The stuff at the front desk will do anything the can to make your stay enjoyable!
We loved it!!!
