“Hyatt's Helpful Staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

Hyatt Regency has a great location on the water! The resort fee includes use of paddleboards, kayaks, and other water toys...this was an unexpected surprise! Bathrooms need updating or at least a fan but the big plus was the staff at the hotel who went out of their way to send an item that I had mistakenly left at the hotel...guest service gets 5 stars for the follow up..thanks.

The people who work at this hotel were very nice and well trained. Unfortunately this place is showing it's age and needs to be updated.

The plumbing was noisy and the shower temperature seemed to have a mind of its own. The walls were rather this and normal noise volumes from our neighbors were too easy to hear.

Room Tip: Go to a different hotel.

The exterior shows some signs of aging but the remodel on the interior is beautiful. Our room was clean and bright. Perhaps the greatest asset is the service at this location. Tommy at check-in was awesome. Ivan in food services went above and beyond. Pool area was loved by our son. Strongly considering staying here again.

Room Tip: High floor overlooking the Bay was amazing.

Stayed here for a work conference and even though I didn't jump in, the pool with it's cascading waterfall was probably the coolest hotel pool I've seen. It is a fairly large pool and very accommodating for many people.

The hotel itself was on par with most Hyatts, nothing overly fancy. The room was nice and clean as was the bathroom and the rest of the hotel. The conference accommodations were very spacious and the staff seemed to help everything run fairly seamless.

We did take the shuttle to Lido Beach and that was a nice addition to our stay, being able to take a shuttle for free. I must say that Giancarlo(?), the new guy was very cool, he was always upbeat and was more than willing to help.

Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your feedback. Our bayside pool and Hurricane Hut poolside bar are great places to unwind and relax after a long day sightseeing or conference going. We really hope you can come back soon and actually get to dive in next time! Thank you again!

This has to be one of the best hotel properties that I have ever stayed at. The rooms, location and amenities were exceptional. Located in a beautiful area of Sarasota and close to some fine restaurants. The service was impeccable. I can highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: I stayed there on business. The room and service were outstanding

We attended a family wedding at the Hyatt in Sarasota and you could not have asked for more of a grander occasion and setting for our lucky bride and groom. The amenities were fantastic as they offered beach side weddings or smaller venues in one of their select outdoor locations. The ballrooms were well decorated adding a nice touch that was very photo friendly. Can't comment on the wedding tab sticker (or proud Parents sticker-shock) but for what they offer is seems reasonable for the location and accommodations. Our wedding party was thrilled at the results and we could tell. The Hyatt staff were friendly, professional and ensured that the wedding guests and family members were well pampered and taken care of. Parking was free for guests. Overall, the wedding and reception went off without a hitch thanks to the Hyatt staff and wedding planners. Highly recommend this hotel for any special ballroom affair. The Hyatt Management team know how to balance events and still provide top notch services. Kudos.

I have been coming here for the past three years with my family . We usually just stay 1-2 days. The pool is wonderful, plenty of lounge chairs, lagoon style pool, tiki bar , great food and service. Set on the bay. You can paddle board , peddle boat or kayak. Very clean and airy hotel. Close to downtown Sarasota restaurants and st. Armand's circle.
