OK, so coming to Florida from Minnesota in February is wonderful in and of itself....but this hotel certainly added to the wonderfulness that is 70 degree weather!!! Great rooms- our room had a very nice L-shaped couch, along with a desk, refrigerator, and a half wall to give the bed some privacy. I'm not sure if all rooms are set up this way, but it was ideal to watch TV and have a few drinks before climbing into the wonderful bed.
The hotel offers a great (and filling) continental breakfast. My personal favorite was the egg, cheese, spinach and mushroom on top of a croissant. What a way to start the day!! There was also waffles, breakfast sanwiches, oatmeal, fruit, yougurt, granola, cereal and breads/bagels to choose from. Along with hot tea, coffee, juice and milk.
After the hubby went off to work, I was left to explore. There is not a whole lot within walking distance of the hotel- but there are the Forum Shops (including a Buffalo Wild Wings) just a little bit down the road. There is a 7-11 within walking distance if needed. I did find a nice loop to run, little traffic and pretty secluded. Then came the pool! It was great! Clean, relaxing and the ideal temperature for a dip. Shower in the room is small, with a nice large shower head with good pressure (something my husband would pay top dollar for at a hotel!).
We did drive south a bit (one exit on I-75) and found plenty of places to eat. Lots of fast food and quite a few sit down restaurants as well. We chose Bonefish, and it was about a 10-15 minute drive- totally worth it. http://www.bonefishgrill.com/Locator/details/ft-myers-florida
The day of checkout, I was able to secure a late checkout and stay in the room until 1:00pm. Since the hubby was working, I wasn't sure what to do after that. I was invited to hang out in the lobby, or on the patio (DONE!!) until he was finished with his day and able to pick me up. Front desk staff is very nice, helpful, and efficient.
All in all, I would totally suggest staying here. It's a very quiet area as, just off of I-75 (about 15 minutes from the airport) and a beautiful property. Well done Hyatt!!
