    Great value for attentive service!

    We received an upgrade to a bay view without requesting it. Wonderful breakfast and dinner buffets, lounge drinks and appetizers. Service was very friendly and attentive. Shuttle service was very handy to airport and shopping nearby. Rooms are large and beds are comfy! Very professional staff for a low price.

    It is a fantastic hotel!

    The staff is very well trained, polite, & exceedingly helpful. They will do whatever it takes to meet your needs. The hotel sits on a 40 acre property & every inch of it is exceptionaly clean & perfectly maintained. Both pools, the fitness room, and conference rooms were all more than I expected. First rate hotel and staff!!!

    Money-saving tip: In Hotel

    The hotel has a free shuttle that will runs to/from the airport & makes frequent visits to Tampa. With a little planning, you could do without a rental car if you aren't planning to do a lot of sight seeing.

    a nice getaway

    Hyatt seems to know how to staff their facilities. Above all, the staff was what struck us the most. They were welcoming, friendly and always helpful. Not to say that the accomodations were not equally as wonderful, but the staff were exceptional. Easy location from airport as well, beware of the highway construction right now. Enjoy.

    fantastic family getaway

    My sister and I came to visit my brother, who we hadnt seen in years. We chose the hyatt because the location was convenient, and because of the stellar reputation of your facilities. Our expectations were not only met but exceeded beyond compare. There is NOTHING you could have done differently to improve upon our experience. The accomodations were just lovely, the staff impeccable!,very service oriented and genuinely friendly. We will be coming back to Florida in the spring and will be staying @ the Grand Hyatt, Tampa. We will be telling ALL our friends and family about this place....FLorida was beautiful enough but your place was the topper, the cat's meow!!!! [...] from engineering in particular was sooo helpful in finding out the name of one the landscaping plants that was not tagged. She went above and beyond the call of duty,and all with a GREAT attitude!

    very pleasant room

    Everything was as expected for a Hyatt. The only negative was the access due to construction and traffic. Missed the turn because it is so congested and had to go 2-4 miles to turn around.

    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.. :)
