“Extraordinary staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We had 6 rooms for business--difficult reservation with people arriving and leaving on different dates--from the moment we talked with Donna and Denise--all of our concerns were erased--she took charge of making everything go smoothly---the check-in was so welcoming-Mercedes was so pleasant-the rooms were perfect--very clean and comfortable--the hotel was across from the Mission Inn- several little restaurants--but the magic of this hotel is the staff--everyone spoke to us--asked if they could be of service--my husband dropped a fork while bringing breakfast up to the room-a passing staff member ran to get him another one--I commented on just why everyone was so happy and agreeable and was told that it was because they all loved their jobs--it made our experience a very enjoyable one--will never stay any where else--

This is my second stay for a swim meet and I was again exceedingly impressed by the service! The facility itself is very comfortable too and the rooms are extra roomy with the spacious lounging/seating area. It is conveniently located. The standout thing beyond all of that is how lovely and accommodating the staff is. I HIGHLY recommend staying here for any Riverside event.
P.S. I never write reviews, but this hotel really deserved it!

Greetings Robin G!

Thank you for the wonderful compliment about our spacious guest rooms! We like to call them oversized guest rooms because they offer so much space! The decorative divider wall makes the room feel more spacious and gives you separate spaces to relax in. And thank you for your HUGE compliment about our staff. It is the people in a place that make the difference and I am so thankful that you appreciate them.

Thank you so much for everything and we look forward to your next swim meet!

I didn't realize that this was a Hyatt "Place" as opposed to Hyatt... I was expecting a full service hotel, but none the less I was OVERLY impressed with the customer service here! From the valet, front desk and management... I really enjoyed everyone I came across!
Breakfast was awesome and so was the food from the restaurant!

Hi there Rugonnawearthathat!

Thank you so much for taking the time out to post a response regarding your stay with us! Hyatt Place is a new style of hotel developed about 8 years ago designed to offer a very close-knit experience for our guests! I am very happy you had the chance to experience our full breakfast in the morning! We are the only hotel in downtown to offer this included in every guest's stay! And finally we believe that guest service has to be a full-circle experience from beginning to end and I am very happy you experienced amazing guest service from every person you encountered!

If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me directly at 951-321-3501.

Thank you again and we look forward to your next visit with us!

My husband and I were in Riverside for a friend's daughter's college function, and stayed the weekend at Hyatt Place. We weren't in the hotel a great deal, but still felt we got our money's worth. Three things stood out, 2 for me and 1 for my hubby. 1) the rooms are like a mini-apartment, very comfortable, with a sofa for relaxing. All too many hotels have the bed also serving as a couch. 2) the breakfast was fantastic. Because I don't eat breakfast often, when I travel it is kind of my favorite meal, and Hyatt Place has the real deal as opposed to a pastry and coffee. 3) this is my husbands perspective--while we were leaving the parking lot on Saturday, an employee (janitor, maybe) was cleaning the parking lot, which was nothing special, but the gentleman was on one knee with a knife scraping something off the asphalt (gum, maybe?). If they pay such attention to little things like this, it speaks well of their attention to big things. We're not in the area much, but when we are our hotel will be an easy choice.

Greetings Leonora!

We are pleased that you chose the Hyatt Place Riverside for your destination while visiting Riverside and are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. As you mentioned, the rooms are quite spacious and many see them as "Junior Suites"! We also take great pride in our breakfast, and we know, that as the 'most important meal of the day', having a fresh, well-rounded breakfast is a great way to start off the morning. Lastly, it warms my heart to know that our team is thoroughly dedicated to making our property the best of the best by paying attention to details and I am very pleased that you recognize this as our commitment to excellence!

We were in Riverside to pick our son up and take him home for summer after completing his Freshman year at UC Riverside. Staff was exceptionally warm and welcoming. They really cared about the guest experience, and were very gracious and accommodating. Room was clean and modern. The chaise lounge sofa was a bonus added feature that we really enjoyed.

We were down in Riverside for our son's graduation and booked a total of three rooms. We felt very welcome as soon as we walked through the door. The check-in was very efficient even though Leila (?) kept apologizing for the delay. She offered us a free drink and half off parking. The room was beautiful, modern and clean. The closet was tiny but it was sufficient for us. Our room faced Market street and the cars were noisy, do ask for a room not facing the street. The breakfast was wonderful, eggs, sausage, waffle, oatmeals, fruits, bagels, etc. The surrounding area was nice, definitely will stay there again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room not facing the street.

From the moment that we arrived, we felt welcome. We had our family stay there for our wedding and could not have asked for better customer service or a more friendly staff - Eboni and Courtney really made everyone feel comfortable and welcome. We had a total of 6 rooms and everyone is still talking about the wonderful time they had there, how they enjoyed the hospitality of the all the staff and the great breakfast that was offered every morning. In addition to the made to order items, they also offered gluten free items which came in handy for two of my family members. The hotel was very clean and the staff ready to provide anything you needed. The Mission Inn is within walking distance along with several choices for dining so we had options for our large group of 15+ people without the worry of transportation. Parking was limited but we never had an issue finding a spot. Overall my family left happy and all said they would stay there again on future trips.Thanks Hyatt for helping make my week great!

Room Tip: We found the queen rooms to be a little more room then the king but both were extremely comfortable...
