    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.

    Tampas Best Kept Secret!

    The Grand Hyatt was WONDERFUL!!! Everything from the staff to the actual hotel room was beautiful! Very friendly and accomodating as well... Upon arriving to the hotel, we were immediately welcomed and treated with utmost respect that carried on thru out our stay. I loved the room which had robes waiting with wine and fruit/cheese (honey may have arranged it) but I sincerely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling on business or leisure. BEAUTIFUL place to relax and enjoy.

    Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

    If you're looking for light airy evening on the town with jazz, live bands, great food, and atmosphere, just a few blocks away there is a mall with a jazzy spot called 'Martini Blue' There is a nestle of shops and eateries lined within one another.

    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.

    Hyatt Tampa

    service was impeccable from the car valet to the front desk to the staff at Oystercatchers, the awesome restaurant. I used to stay at this hotel about 15 times a year 10 years ago and other than some cosmetic changes, the rooms are looking their age. no flat screen tv, kinda strange in a Hyatt.

    unbelievable hospitality and location

    This is a very high class facility, yet it caters to kid, even though I was not traveling with any at the time. They rolled a wide screen tv out by the pool and showed "Horton Hears a Who" for the kids when it was dark out. It was a business trip for me so I was not at the motel the whole time, but when I was, like for lunch, it was real good service and they make a mean hamburger, fixed just the way you like it. I'd like to stay there again when I have my kids and I can just relax and have a good time. The only thing that I think could have made the stay better is if the internet was included in the room and didn't cost $22.00/hour. Parking was free.

    The airport was practically right next door, it was only maybe 5 to 10 minutes away. So you don't have to waste time with a long commute.
