Room windows and balcony overlooking the ocean. Pleasant and accommodating staff, enjoyable breakfast and lunch at the restaurant (we were out for dinner). Good proximity to the Pier. Only negative was that open hallways were rather brisk during our somewhat chilly January stay.

We often stay at Hyatt properties because we like the quality room, service, and food. This location was no exception. The only thing a bit off/weird was that the shades for the windows sheer. So when it was night, someone could look up unto your room... and in the morning, the sun was super brights ...
