    Some disappointments

    This was a one day business trip. The shuttle had me (and another hotel guest) sitting at the airport for about 45 minutes until I called the hotel. They authorized a cab, but it was a poor introduction to their services. I had a little time before my business appt and wanted to take a dip in the pool. The pool was out of service. They had arrangements with a nearby pool, but this did not work with my schedule. VERY disappointing. I had tconfirmed the pool when I booked and would have gone to another hotel.

    Hyatt Stay

    The facility and accommodations were wonderful. I did not find many of the staff very helpful, although the roomservice folks were outstanding. I would definitely go back to this facility again in the future!

    Always Great

    I have made repeated visits to this hotel. It is always terrific:very clean, great bay views from the room, uncrowded pool, comfortable pool chairs, Petey Brown's breakfast has perfect assortment at the buffet. Staff is friendly and accommodating: shuttles to the airport and to the mall are prompt (and free). All in all, a wonderful place to stay-for a day or for a week!! one note of caution: drinks at the bar are expensive.
