The hotel definitely shows some age, but it's still a Hyatt both on hard product and customer service. It does have accepted way too many tourist groups, however. If that's the way it survives, let it be...but it does leave bad impressions for the guests. Basically, the building is old, the lobby is nice, the hallway of the rooms is... More

If this is one of signature Hyatt properties, it's not. Pros: 1. Rooms are of a good size. 2. Clean Cons: 1. Staff attitude. I felt like it's just a normal motel. 2. Walls are thin. I've called the reception 3 times the first night, because you can basically hear people from two sides. You hear doors banging. 3. Location.... More

This is a tough hotel to rate. Hyatts are often older properties that really show their age (while demanding a premium price) and the newer Hyatt Place properties are very inconsistent. I am not entirely sure with this place if the glass is half-full or half-empty -- or both. My room itself passed -- but barely -- my basic test... More

We stayed here for a week while my husband was working in Fairfax. First, the PROs: very clean (someone was always mopping, vacuuming, gardening, etc), location is good (easy drive or even walk to restaurants, groceries), there was a fridge in the room (no microwave); there is free laundry on the top floor; the internet is free & worked well...

I am staying at the Hyatt now. Room on floor 7. Room is a mini suite that is divided by a TV to a sitting area and desk. Great room layout, small bathroom. Coffee machine and brew needs to be upgraded. Great bed with a restful night. Walked a block to Jason's Deli. Great stay, nice hotel.

We stayed at this hotel for a wedding and stayed in a block of rooms reserved for wedding guests. We thought that breakfast may be included so we went downstairs. As we walked towards the lobby, there were no signs indicating the price of breakfast. There were no signs ANYWHERE. We saw some friends of our sitting and as we... More

I like Hyatts and stay at them when I can so was a little surprised when the room weren't quite what I was used to and laid out a bit awkwardly. I was also surprised that most of the very few available TV channels were not HD (which may sound petty, but as a high volume traveler, it's the little... More
