“Great start in Champaign”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

We stayed one night in Champaign recently on our way to Chicago and was excited to find a new HP. The hotel is located downtown with tons of nightlife, & restaurants within walking distance. Hyatt did a great job of adding a parking garage attached to the property with a covered area for loading and unloading. The staff was excellent, always greeting us and asking if our needs were bing met. The property is new, so obviously no complaints about the property, but the AC in our room did seem to not cool quite as much as we wanted. Overall great experience top to bottom, another satisfied Diamond member.

This is a great place to stay with a wide variety of restaurants and bars within walking distance. Breakfast buffet was delicious and price was reasonable. Very clean and staff was always waiting with a friendly smile, treating everyone like 5 star guest.

Room Tip: If you are there on a summer weekend you want to request a room away from the music festivals that h...

We stayed in one of the spacious suites at this lovely new hotel. The entire building was spotless with boutique style decor and artwork. The room was large and comfortable and we had no problems. One of the late night attendants, Sarah, was very accommodating and made us delicious flatbreads to take up to the room after we checked out the mariposa music festival taking place just outside the hotel. She was very helpful and gave us a tour of the gym and pool, both of which looked nice, but we didn't get the chance to actually use. Breakfast was complete and had a much better selection than any chain hotel I've seen, including hot and cold items. The Hyatt gets 4 stars not for any problems, but because we are travel snobs and have stayed at 5 star chateaus in the French countryside. No doubt this is the best hotel in C-U, though.

Clean, nice rooms with view. Our room on the 9th floor had a great view of town and the room itself was very large and nicely decorated-quite modern. It was really comfortable and the hotel staff was very kind and helpful as well.

My girlfriend and I found ourselves in Champaign last weekend for the Bloomington Gold show and decided to spend the night at the brand new Hyatt Place. We were both blown away at the personalized guest service and attention to detail. We simply can not believe we stayed there opening week as everything flowed so perfectly, it seemed the staff were in fluid motion with one another for years.
I am a hotel snob, I work in the industry and have for over 16 years. I so wish I had the opportunity to take your staff with me. However then they will not be there for the many more trips we plan to take to Champaign. My girlfriend went to school at U of I and I am in love with corvettes, hence the Bloomington Gold trip.
I apologize for not recalling names as those should be recognized. The woman who checked us in made us feel as if we were in her home (night of June 28). The ladies in the the breakfast area the following morning (June 29) made sure every guest was happy and was genuine in their care for those with kids by bringing crayons and coloring menus for them to play with and enjoy. The hot food was hot and the cold food was cold. The tables and chairs were spotless.
The entire hotel from the parking garage to the stairway to the elevator to the food area to the sidewalk outside was spotless as well.
The room was ideal for our stay and we will certainly bring our children next time as the hotel and area are very kid friendly.
Absolutely WOW!

Room Tip: The views from the 9th floor are amazing!

The restaurant was very disorganized. Staff did not know what they were doing. Waiting 1hr10 minutes for a soup/salad combo, 2 chicken quesadilla. The couple there when we arrive, waiting with 3 small children had been waiting 1hr 30 min before there food came out. I believe they need to close this area of the hotel until they can get an organized staff of cooks and waiters. Our waiter was also in the kitchen, front desk, and after asking if there was anything else - he proceeded to the front desk area and started working with another guest. Where was the ticket?
Oh, no silverware or napkins either for a while. Back to the ticket. There was no ticket because I refused to pay. I was planning on looking around the hotel, check out the pool area and such - but by the time lunch was over I was never coming back! Good Luck but the restaurant was an after thought.

Victor P, General Manager at Hyatt Place Champaign, responded to this review, 29 June 2014
Thank you very much for your comments. There is no excuse for having you wait such extreme lengths of time for food. We as a new hotel learned a lesson that day and we apologize that you were on the negative side of that lesson. Moving forward we have made some necessary changes so that yourself or anyone else does not have to suffer at our expense. Again we do apologize and hope that we can serve you better in the future if you are gracious enough to give us another chance.

Warm regards.
