“95% great, 5% eh.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

We stayed at the property for 4 days on a business trip and can say with confidence I will return again. The staff is the best part of this property, as they are extremely helpful, courteous, professional and treat you like you are guests in their home. They even leave individually wrapped rice crispy treats by the entrance/exit during the day so you always have a little treat. It's little touches like this that made this property shine.

PROS: GREAT breakfast, nice business center amenities, shuttle bus (however, it smelled,) the most comfortable beds EVER, great room layout with fridge and HUGE seating area (and more), room amenities are perfect for business travel because of the roomy desk and great media inputs in the room, bar in lobby along with 24/7 menu to order food and snacks (food is good!)

CONS: The hotel smelled a little when I walked in, kinda damp and muggy but not too bad (it is South Florida I suppose,) the AC unit in the room was a little disruptive because of the noise it made, the commode/shower room of the bathroom (vanity is on outside) was TINY and had no fan so if someone did #2 there was NO escaping it. The toilet was so close to tub that the shower curtain was actually draped over you as you sat down to do your business.

Even with these cons, I will return.

We stayed at this hotel the night before flying home after a Key West vacation. I booked only a few days prior after cancelling a reservation at the filthy airport Hilton. So glad we did. Check-in was a breeze, staff was super friendly and helpful, parking was free, breakfast was included, and the room was spacious, updated, and comfortable. Mini fridge in the room kept our drinks cold. The huge flatscreen TV was a nice addition. The bed was comfortable. One drawback was the slightly outdated shower, although the water pressure was amazing. We drove to a nearby pub for dinner and got a good night’s sleep before making the quick drive to the airport in the morning. Definitely recommend!

Pros: The hotel has excellent curb appeal: it look excellent inside and out. Everything is brand new. Staff is very nice even though it took a long time to check in as the computer systems were down. Rooms are mostly beautiful(except for the bathroom/vanity) - EXACTLY like the photo. I was extremely pleased with the breakfast items: they has a bit of a premium feel to them.

Cons: Even though I have years of experience with hotel & motel AC units, it was literally IMPOSSIBLE to get a good setting on the AC unit. The unit would not let me manually adjust the fan setting to high, low or automatic. In the end, there were only two options: freezing cold or very humid and hot. Nothing in between.

The other con is that the are for having breakfast was very small. Way too small to ever get a seat if you were not there very early. If there is no way to put in more seats, they should provide trays to take up to rooms to have breakfast.

The bathroom/vanity is not as nice as the rest of the room - seems to be a cheaper buld.

Might or might not stay again - the AC was the biggest problem for the personally. Would depend on the price.

We stayed for three nights prior to a late January cruise. It seemed a bit further out than we anticipated but after a couple of trips into Ft. Lauderdale the distance wasn't an issue at all. The room was quite comfortable, spacious and clean. The breakfast was decent with a fairly good selection. There were some restaurants within walking distance. However, what stood out was the performance of the staff. They were excellent. My wife commented that in addition to their first rate service, they seemed to really enjoy working with the guests and each other. Certainly a place worth revisiting. After our cruise, we stayed one night at the Embassy Suites on 17th St. We should have went back to the Hyatt!

I came for a wedding and the stay was magnificent. my first day there i wanted to do some shopping and i asked Luis (shuttle driver) how i can get a cab and he gave us a ride to the mall instead. i wasnt aware of any shuttle service and i was shocked that they will drop u off anywhere within 5 miles. If you decide to stay here take FULL advantage of this service but please remember you arent the only one so make a reservation and not hope to get the shuttle at your convenience. Pool is nice, room is small but nice and breakfast was DELICIOUS! its free and its not any typical breakfast it was very good! shout out to Annette Luis and Danny for making our stay wonderful

Room Tip: Take full advantage of the shuttle service and DO NOT MISS BREAKFAST

I stayed here overnight for a business trip and was very impressed with the quality of the room and amenities available, and the service I received. Parking was ample and the lobby was quite nicely appointed. There were plenty of self-service snacks and drinks available late into the evening. The room I was assigned was very spacious with a whole living room area and a separate bedroom. The room stayed dark and quiet while I slept, the bed was clean and soft enough, and the free wi-fi was very reliable which facilitated my work. The hotel is also located close to other restaurants and shopping areas if you need to run out and pick something up. The continental breakfast was also amply stocked. This was a great value and for business travel, is very nice!

I stayed here three nights on a recent business trip.
Everything was on par with what I expect from hotels at this level (size of the room, quality of linens, etc.). What stood out to me was the staff. During my stay I had occasion to speak with several staff members and found each of them to be friendly and helpful.
Although I did not take advantage of the service, the hotel does offer a shuttle anywhere within a five mile radius.
