    Best hotel ever

    I have never had a better experience at a hotel. All the staff was extremely friendly and always knew my name. Every place we wanted to go, the front desk had printed directions to that were extremely easy to understand. Everything we needed they had and were happy to give it to us. Every night we were there, we went out to bars, and there were always cabs waiting for us outside the hotel. The pool (there are 2 but we only went to 1) was so beautiful. It has plush chairs, towels provided, and an awesome hot tub. One night, the hotel put a big screen tv by the pool and played movies. There is also a bar right next to the pool. Best trip ever.. :)

    Beautiful Hotel for a Great Price

    This vacation was a girls trip with my mom and her grown daughters. The bay view was beautiful. The rooms were clean and spacious. Appeared to be recently updated. Plenty of mirrors for the 3 of us to get ready at the same time! The pool closest to the hotel was covered in shade until after noon. The second pool was a little nicer and close to the water and a man-made sandy beach area. We ate at all of the restaurants and really enjoyed the food but they are pricey. The hotel had free parking. There is not much within walking distance so would recommend renting a car. We all loved our time at the hotel. We would stay here again.

    "The good, the bad, and the ugly"

    The hotel is above average and the front desk was helpfull. All services were way overpriced including onsite resturants which were nice but not worth the money. Their website is inaccurate and when we paid extra for double kingbeds and waterfront view had to ask to be moved to get what we payed for.

    Stay on Tampa Bay

    Lovely hotel in a great location. Down-side, older style TV, room type reserved not availalbe, charge for internet in business center. Many hotels that cost a lot less offer a free internet connection. But all-in-all a property that I would stay in again and recommend to a friend.

    From quick help with my internet connection to setting up a special table for me when the restaurant was full. The service was fast and very friendly.

    Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay

    beautiful property, super restaraunts although very pricy. Asked for repairs, one came at 10:30 pm, one never happened. One request for information never replied to. If you go to Oystercatchers, Victoria is the very best! Don't depend on their shuttle service, not reliable. We ended up renting a car.

    Nice Hotel

    Nice clean rooms and hotel and great location and services. Room service was pricey considering for two glasses of orange juice and ten pieces of fruit was almost $30. It's a luxury that you have to expect to pay a lot for.

    Great place! Great price! Great staff!

    Great place to stay alone or with family. Friendly staff that will make it right for you. Beautiful inside, and out. Oystercatchers restaurant was great, but pricey. For the area the prices are not too bad for fine dining. I recommend the crab patties, shrimp cocktail, and gulf snapper sauteed. The other restaurants were very good, too.

    Money-saving tip: In Hotel

    If you stay here you might want to rethink renting a car. They have a great staff of courtesy drivers that will pick you up and drop you off at the airport until 1:00 AM. They will also take you to nearby resaurants, and shopping. Call them with your needs before traveling and see what they can do for you. Taxis are pretty reasonable,too.
