“Best Place in Daytona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

Stayed at the Hyatt place in Daytona on March 29, 2014 for 6 nights....the rooms were great, the buffet satisfied our teenagers appetites, our beach front room had a gorgeous view and the pool was perfect. The location is just right..close to Ponce inlet and just far enough from downtown Daytona to feel safe. The staff was awesome and friendly..... I would highly recommend this hotel.

Stayed at the Hyatt Place Oceanfront Daytona Beach, FL on March 31 for 5 days. I was surprised how nice and clean the hotel and grounds were considering it was Daytona Beach - which I had previously found to be a bit "rough around the edges". The staff was friendly and accommodating, and the hotel was immaculate inside and out. The breakfast was plentiful, however, this particular Hyatt could take a cue from "cruise-ship style dining" by providing two buffet type lines instead of the one line that moved so slow that it backed up out into the reception area every morning. After placing eggs or waffle on my plate, by the time I was able to move forward to the beverage area then to my table to sit, all of my food was cold. The only other annoyance was the lack of lounge chairs at the pool. It seemed as though there were only 25+ chairs for 300+ guests, and they were taken or reserved by 9:30AM each morning. And with the unobstructed, beautiful view from the pool overlooking the ocean (and adjacent to the hot tub) it's no wonder the pool deck was packed. Did I mention the pool was heated? It was nice since the outside temp ranged from 60-73 degrees each day while we were there. The elevators were packed each morning during the breakfast rush - would be helpful to have another bank of elevators but I doubt that will happen to ease the situation. The beds were very comfortable and we were given extra pillows upon request. The extra space in the form of a sofa/ottoman provided a nice little sitting area from which to gaze at the ocean or simply read a book. The bathroom was very clean and modern - I loved the transparent glass door that allowed extra light to flow into the bathroom, as well as the chic sink and granite countertop. I have friends that live in Ormond Beach which we visit annually. We will absolutely stay at this Hyatt Place Daytona Beach - Oceanfront again during our next visit!

Room Tip: We had a double queen room with separate sitting area. It was basically in the center of the buildi...

Another winner in the Hyatt chain----Clean updated rooms nice location in Daytona Beach Shores as apposed to further up the road in Daytona Beach . Public areas delightful to the eye -Breakfast area nice view and clean with good breakfast offerings Room on 9th floor at end of floor extremely clean and quiet -with fridge Lobby small but really nice. Check in fast and efficient . Rms ocean front or with small balcony with partial ocean view and of Halifax River --partial view unexciting as you really see more of the empty lot next to the hotel and the street and balcony really small without any chairs ----so pay the extra for ocean front if staying a while --Parking is another issue -very small spaces out front but more parking on the ocean side - and oh yes the pillows were the hardest I have ever experienced -but these
things are not enough to skip this place It is a winner.

I stayed at the hyatt with my husband and two kids april 2 for three nights. We got an oceanfront two queen beds with sofa pull out. The ocean front was great to wake up to every morning. The staff was very very nice. We were on the tenth floor and the elevators took forever but then again the hotel was sold out for that week so lots of people,. Breakfast was good but there was long lines every morning. Only thing we didnt like is that people would go out by the pool 7am to put towels down and never use the chairs. So most of the chairs were there just sitting with towels on. Everything else was great, clean and pretty quiet. Kids loved the pool and the beach. Will for sure come back to this hotel when we do visit Daytona Beach again !

Room Tip: If you love the beach get a higher floor.. best view.

The bed was extremely comfortable and room very clean. The housekeepers and guest service staff were outstanding. The pool and hotel was very clean as well.

The fridge did NOT keep food cold and we heard many other guests complain about this as well. We put in 3 requests to have this fixed, but ended up with spoiled food and no fix.
The breakfast was not good and the line to get it was ridiculous, we skipped it most of the time.

Location is good - lots of options to walk to (gas station, diners, gift shops) and away from the busy Boardwalk area

Room Tip: King suite away from the ice machine is the way to go

I stayed at Hyatt Place Apr. 2 for 3 nights with my family of 5 in a 2 queen with sofa bed.

Pros: very clean updated rooms, great location (streets are full of rift raft further north-kinda sketchy), nice pool & hot tub (I didn't have any issues with not being able to find a pool chair) easy check-in, right on the beach!!

Cons: long lines for breakfast and it was cold, elevators took FOREVER (I was on 10th floor), parking (there aren't enough spots for everyone, people make their own spots and then you can't get out), no patio chairs.

Overall: I would definitely recommend this place. My cons did not stop us from enjoying ourselves in any way. It was Spring Break, so I'm sure all the hotels were like that.

P.S. Don't waste your time going to Caribbean Jack's. I'll be writing a review for them too! Try Ocean Deck instead...great food & great service!!

Stayed April 2014
