I just checked out of the new Hyatt 48 Lex this morning.
The hotel is nice. The lobby is extremely small, bordering on uncomfortably tight when there are more than a few people in the 'room'.
There is a 'lounge' on the second floor that has complimentary coffee and such. I liked this area as a place to escape. Very nice.
The rooms are very contemporary, very nice. Layouts and floorplans are a bit odd...and seem to vary greatly from room to room.
The feel of this hotel mirrors that of a new Andaz, albeit much smaller.
Although my stay here was 'fine', i have to admit that i would probably prefer to return to the Andaz on 5th next time. Rooms are larger, lobby and facilities more extensive...similar location.
Tommy at the front desk was the strongest asset to this hotel. He was always attentive, friendly, and went out of his way to make you feel welcome. I must say that other staff didnt meet the standard that he set at 'check in'. They were all fine, but nothing special.
