After recent stays in both Napa and the new Long Beach Hyatt unfortunately the Key West Hyatt did not meet the expectation established by our prior Hyatt stays this summer. The highlight of the hotel was the staff for us from Brigette at the front desk to Luanne who never let our cocktails run dry on the sun deck the staff took excellent care of us!
The reason for the three star designation is for several reasons. Most significant is that the rooms are tired. The furniture is old and beat up, HD TV is not to be expected from the early flat screen TV's and the look and decor iis a bit dated. (Personal Opinion) the patio / beach furniture is all ready for replacement as well.
My wife and I are sun lovers as a result of living in the north east. Unfortunately the pool is in the shade 1/2 of the day and the "Beach" is a BIG stretch! (Very Dissappointing) We hung out on the Sun Deck which was nice but it was a battle to get a good spot and this little spot can become competitive for sun lovers.
Bottom line we would go another direction with our hotel / tourism dollar should we return. On a side note we found outstanding restaurants in Key West which was unexpected and a pleasant surprise! (Key West was a bit dissappointing, especially Duval Street a dirty tourist trap!)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located directly on the Gulf of Mexico with an small intimate beach and within walking distance of prime shops and attractions, Hyatt Key West Resort & Spa is a year-round resort housing 118 spacious rooms. Water activities abound, including parasailing, snorkeling, jet boats and waverunning from the hotel’s marina and sunset cruises and dive trips. An on-site StayFit@Hyatt exercise center, new Jala Spa facility, pool and private sunbathing beach areas and dock provide additional recreation. Bicycle and scooter rentals are also available. The full-service restaurant, SHOR American Seafood Grill, offers indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the Gulf of Mexico, while ample meeting space, including an expansive banquet room, make the resort ideal for conferences and destination events. The Blue Mojito Bar & Grill offers light bites, a variety of cocktails and beverages and the best sunset view in town. A $10 million renovationwas completed in Fall 2007 and has brought a fresh and stylish, modern aesthetic to the resort’s classic Key West charm, transforming the property into a “tropical modern” experience through its elegant integration of architecture, interiors and landscapes. Soothing, luminous colors punctuated by bold detailing impart an intimate spa-like quality throughout, supported by organic materials such as porcelain, bamboo, glass tile and stone. Both private and public spaces across the resort have been transformed, including all 118 guestrooms, the lobby, the pool area with three all-new white-canvas spa cabanas and the newly dubbed Blue Mojito Pool Bar & Grill and SHOR American Seafood Grill. The redesign has also introduced the all-new Jala Spa facility. ... more less
