I have a love/hate relationship with this hotel. It's close to home and nice for a quick getaway. I love the beauty of the area and the hotel itself is stunning. The Hyatt is isolated with plenty of pretty hiking, a great spa, golf, much of what you want from a resort. And they are quite proud of their beauty, as you can tell by the prices.
I was fortunate to be out attending a conference with a special rate. I was glad that I knew to ask for a balcony or patio - all the attendees are paying the same special rate - why do they always try to put me in the boonies and try to not give me outdoor space? From what I could tell when I sat on my little balcony later - no-one else used theirs! From past experience I knew that self parking was quite the hike - so, I came with the attitude that the longgggggggg hike to and from the self parking was good exercise - I knew to wear comfy shoes. I do have to say, they had several more "golf cart" like transports available and ready, I turned them down to walk most of the time. The room overall was clean and comfy. The bed is starting to see better days, hopefully they have some rotating plan to keep those fresh. Love the separate shower and bathroom items. Plenty of towels and a nice robe. And I was in the middle of one of the big buildings, rooms on all 4 sides...I was a little worried about noise and there was really not any noise! The only noise I heard from other rooms was some running water (shower, after flushing). I am a light sleeper so I slept well with that as white noise.
The food - The conference provided a couple of meals and all of it was tasty and well served. In addition, I had room service deliver a bowl of chili and I would consider it comparable to something I would make at home. Large bowl, more than I could finish after noshing on the free cocktail party food.
The spa - Was much more together this trip, plenty of towels, supplies and the greeter person was quite nice on the little tour before the massage. The massage....Jessica did an amazing job, so much so that I turned in early that night. And they do one of my favorite things, they let you pay after your services so you can tip accordingly. Made for a lovely afternoon.
Pet Peeve - Why is there a charge for internet service? and a ridiculous one at that? I left the netbook at home in protest.
Kinda cool - I was in one of the buildings toward the rear of the property, when walking to the parking lot I noticed a little group of animals they keep at the Hyatt. A horse, donkey, longhorn steer, and some regular cows? Just thought that was neat. And they looked well kept with plenty of space.
Overall a pretty good stay this time. Great place for a conference, you can't help but network after you navigate the 3 miles from the main road to the hotel. I look forward to next year!
