Front desk staff was great and the breakfast was impressive!!

Excellent facility, clean, modern, and well maintained. Parking was a problem because we had a top-carrier and the car was too high to enter the parking garage, something to check out before hand. There are other parking areas available, but can be several blocks from the hotel.

This is a very nice hotel. However, for a first time guest, there are lots of things that they don't explain very well or at all. We were in a handicapped room. Adjusting the blinds was close to impossible, even after the person at the desk came and showed us. Even the elevators are tricky and you just have to poke around to figure them out. I parked in their garage, but for some reason not in the right place, even though the door said Hyatt Place. I think the hotel puts too much responsibility to figure these things out on the guest. I would stay again but would specify a normal room.

I couldn’t believe we got such a nice stay for such a decent price! The breakfast was actually really good. Usually the free breakfasts are lame and underwhelming. My kids loved the options. The staff was very helpful!

The hotel was great. They didn’t have parking which was why I booked there.

hated the garage. 4 levels intothe ground and i had to part a bg pickup. wont go back.

Great location

Good location, friendly staff, lack of housekeeping, room was cleaned first day of stay and we left substantial tip, next day we called and at end of day when room was dirty and towels were sent up, next day we called and were told there was no housekeeping and a sign at check-in notified us if we wanted housekeeping we needed to request it ahead of time. We didn’t see a sign and it was never mentioned. Again, we had a filthy room, with overflowing garbage, no toilet paper, and were provided with more towels, dirty wet towels on the floor.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us! Our parking garage height limit is 7' as you experienced. Thankfully, there are options nearby to accommodate taller vehicles or vehicles with pull behind trailers. We hope to welcome you back again soon!
