Hyatt Regency Sarasota

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The resort fees are ridiculous. The front desk even told me Orbitz price was only an “estimate” and came out to be even more. Complete rip off. The hotel itself is nice, but for the price it’s not particularly near anything worth seeing (everything good you have to drive to) and the hotel rooms are WAY overpriced for that!! Even the view from the rooms was not especially impressive, though I did have a nice balcony. You can find hotels closer to the beach or downtown for much cheaper.

This hotel is staffed by wonderful, friendly people, which is always a good way to start you stay. The rooms, with a view, are very nice. The price is right and you're close to everything. And the pool is a cool hanging out spot, for a lot of fun people.

This hotel is decidedly more tired than the photos show. Our shower curtain smelled like mildew and there were brown stains on the wall near the toilet. We received no turn down service and when we called we were informed there were no clean towels in the hotel. Nuff said- there is a Westin across the street which is brand new!

My boys and I recently stayed here for 5 days and our experience couldn't have been better, with one exception. The day we were checking out, I was charged an additional 20+ dollars/ day for what they called a "resort fee". When I went to question the front desk about this, another guest was apparently having the same experience and she seemed dissatisfied as well. I was told this was an additional fee which covered things like wifi, kyacks, fishing supplies, etc- all of which I was told were "included" when I first checked in. The supervisor on duty was willing to work with me on this, but I still feel it is a deceptive practice at best. Other than that, our experience was top notch

Very noisy roofing work was done above our room,had to switch rooms. Always had to call for wash cloths never in room. Elevators run very slow always had to wait. We got stuck in one elevator would go up and down and doors would not open. Restaurant service was terrible very slow had to wait 15 minutes for service. Poor location construction work going on around area. Very disappointed with this Hyatt Hotal. We always stay at Hyatt Hotels always have been very satisfied. Would not go back to this Hyatt.

Only problem it rained,LOL. Room was nice, everything was great

Hard bed, extremely congested entry, had to park in the street.

Hotel room is so lacking. Hasn't been redone in years...nice location, nice views but not worth the money!

Rooms are small. Balconies have low height railings and wide apart, kids can easily fall off, so we had to move to a non balcony room. The restaurant has extremely limted options though breakfast is good. The resort fee is supposed to cover paddle boat rental etc. The marins- office closes at 4pm and you have to book in advance to use even their paddle boats or kayaks. Overall this hotel has decent facilities but is overpriced by a factor of 2.

Awesome place took my daughter for her 22nd birthday

Fine. Eh we hear him ehwhwyeh sywywyw t with ehwyryitithhdgdg wyyeyet we yw

Like Hyatt Regencies elsewhere, this tired and fraying hotel needs a makeover to restore it to the high quality of yesteryear. And it needs to build into its rates the $18/day + taxes "resort" fee for what amounts to wifi & water. And we didn't get the king bed with balcony I reserved because, according to Kiley who checked us in (at 7pm) "a big group came in today and took all of those rooms." I didn't know my months-in-advance reservation lost out to first come first served.

Disappointed on having to pay an extra $18.00 for 2 bottles of water and other extras that should come with the price of staying at a Hyatt. The room was very nice and pool was beautiful.

Staff was fabulous,,,! Place was great! Great location!,,enjoyed the incredible pool! And outdoor patio!

This is a great Hotel for family or couples!! Our #1 stay for Sarasota.

Excellent stay.Wish we could have stayed longer and used more of the amenities.Loved the setting with the marina and awesome pool.Would definatly stay here again.

we have stayed during the last 5 years 4th of July weekend. We have also been there for boat racing week. Carmel in the pool bar was the most friendly and helpful bar tender we have ever had at any hotel we have stayed at. She went out of her way to help me and my wife who has a disabilty and is in a wheel chair. Mark and Dwayne the car porters were most helpful and could not do enough for us. It is very hard to find any Hotel that has the great staff and helpful employees that really care about there customers. We have been coming to Florida for the past 20 years and never has such a great time and had such helpful hotel employees let us know where the best resturants and handicap places to go. We will be there again this summer. Thanks for the great time. Looking forward to being there again this year. Mark & Elaine Chicago ill.

Enjoyed the quiet and the staff was very attentive. Restaurant suggestions could have been better. Fitness room was excellent. Drinks were outrageously expensive.

Hotel is very nice but was too expensive during the off season. Should have included breakfast for the price negotiated by travel company.

Very nice hotel stay! Great location, close to Lido Beach! Beautiful pool but loses sun in afternoon! Food at pool and in hotel restaurant was very good! Friendly staff everywhere. Would definitely stay again!
