It's in a good location, and parking is pretty cheap.
The 3 different pillows on the King bed is the worst sleeping arrangement I ever can across. They gave one almost normal frumpy pillow, and 2 smaller almost like sofa pillows of various firmness. I don't know why: but I just can't sleep well trying to sleep on sofa size pillows. Regular hotels give you 4 full size pillows: that works why can't Hyatt do that? The room temperatures vary widely between blistering hot and freezing cold. The air conditioner makes noises like you wouldn't believe. The walls are poorly insulated from sound: whoever was in the next room pulled a noisy all nighter which made it very difficult to get a good nights rest. All my problems getting rest made it very difficult for me get my business stuff done during the day. There is a insufficient amount of elevators for the amount of people that can be in the hotel at any given time. There was a wedding going on: and on average it would like around 30 minutes to get from the car to your room. The parking system is a big pain because you have to take your ticket to the front desk and get it validated every time you come and go from the parking lot.
Toilet leaked, shower screamed and stains on carpet, blinds were broken
The pillows were soft.
Our room was horrible. The cable was staticky with limited options. The shower tub was clogged so after coming up from a horrible pool experience wet and cold I got in to shower and the shower was not draining. We had to wait 20 minutes, wet, for maintenance to come and fix the drain. The bed had a blanket with a huge brown stain and we complained about that to. The view was horrible, especially for the price we paid.
I like the hotel service. Very good !
The staff was pretty nice. We were given a room with an adjoining door (which I've learned my lesson to specifically ask not to have a room with one of these at check-in) with pretty loud neighbors. No problems switching rooms to an end room. Outdated decor but clean room and comfortable bed. Oh, and an empty fridge that is not stuffed with overpriced food and drinks is a nice touch.
Wifi is $10 a day! Rip off! I guess that's why the room itself was cheap. Also, my boyfriend left a suit and several shirts hanging in the closet. He lives out of town, so I tried contacting the hotel for several days. Every time I got connected to their Lost and Found, no one ever picked up which was pretty frustrating. I finally just went to pick up the clothes, and they were handed to me crumpled in a trash bag. That was a tad unprofessional.
