    Tampa Hyatt Regency

    My brothers and sister and I made this trip to visit our father for his 75th birthday and only stayed at the hotel one night. [...], the bartender at one of the pools (a substantial walk from the hotel, but I'm not complaining, it was beautiful!) made excellent drinks and gave us top notch service - even delivering drinks to us poolside.Once we left the pool and began the trek back to the hotel, it began to rain. So, we stopped at another building (sorry - no clue what it was!) and the valets there called a hotel shuttle to pick us up. Everyone was very friendly and accomodating.The only negative I have - and I'm sure it's not applicable ONLY to this hotel, but all of them - is the pricing for room service! Two burgers and two bottles of water cost us $57.00!I'd stay there again, but pass on the room service!

    Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

    Check out WetWillie's, just a short cab ride away and there are lots of shops and other bars/restaurants all around the square there.

    Simply wonderful solo getaway

    This was my first solo trip. I love this hotel! Close to airport but tucked away from the hustle and bustle. From the moment I flew in, the shuttle service was timely and friendly. A good plus..the shuttle takes you to area shopping and restaurants. I especially enjoyed the pool and the Lounge Bar...the bar staff was GREAT!..had poolside service! The room was neat, clean, and nicely decorated. The concierge service was good. I had a great getaway. Next time I will stay in a casita room! Only suggestion would be breakfast should included with the room.

    A Balance of Harmony

    It is a beautiful hotel in an out of the way location. Having stayed at other Hyatt's, Hyatt Place's and Grand Hyatt's, I had many expectations. What most impressed me was the knowledge, care and friendliness of the staff. This by far stood out when comparing it to other Hyatt hotels around the world. These are commodities that can't be bought or built into the structure. Another plus was the nature walk to the gazebo, over the wetlands adjacent to the property. The food was well-prepared, presented, and priced, for such a hotel. I especially liked the breakfast buffet with its fine selection of fresh fruits and delicious pastries. Certainly, there are areas which, when compared to other Grand Hyatts, miss the mark on excellence; I guess it just depends on what you want your 'get-away' to include. For the price, it was almost perfect for my purposes. Even so, there were areas that, objectively, were slightly less than stellar. I suppose you can't 'have your cake and eat it too.' Among the things that one might see as limiting are the small grounds areas encompassing the hotel, alternative restaurants and local shopping choices within walking distance. The rooms were well kept, but shower power and sound proof doors were lacking. I was also surprised to see that there were no robe or slippers provided, and that wi-fi was not included in the tariff. Maids calling-out and children running in the hallways was also a bit of a distraction, but I guess there wasn't a quiet zone, in which they could have placed a single, very jet-lagged resident. 'You can't have your cake and eat it too' but I'd go back...

    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!
