“Superb Service, fantastic pool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

Have stayed at this particular Hyatt Hotel on many occassions, and have always found it to be more than adequate. While the rooms could be a little larger and furniture updated, it is always clean and quiet room. Richard at the front desk was a pleasure to work with!

Tiffany and the front deck personnel were fantastic, from check-in to checkout. It is obvious there is a great deal of pride in the hotel and they go the extra mile to display that attitude. The hotel is a bit older and as such the room I had was on the small side. The room was clean, well lit and the shower was one of the best to get wet, but the bathroom area was uncomfortably small. Due to the size of the room, watching the TV can only be done from the bed which is somewhat uncomfortable if done for any extended period.

My husband attended a conference at the Hyatt, so our teenage son and I went with him.

Overall, this is a good hotel but it is certainly not worth over $200 a night. Our room was nice, but very small. We were constantly bumping into each other. There was not enough space to store our things. There were only two small drawers and a few hangers. I ended up keeping my clothes in the suitcase all week. Also, there was only one hook for hanging wet things. My other complaint is the humidity inside the room. After hanging for two days, my swimsuits were still wet. Crazy.

On the plus side, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. My son and I used the water sports, pool, fishing equipment, and shuttle. All the staff was great and we had fun. The pool really is resort-like. Be sure to take the shuttle to the beach if you stay here. The public areas of the hotel were very nice. For one person on business, this place would be good. There really isn't room for more, though.

Thank you so much for the feedback on your recent stay. I was sorry to hear that some of the room features didn't suit your family's needs for this particular trip and we have shared these comments with our Engineering Team as the airflow problems you experienced aren't typical for our guest rooms. We were glad to hear you enjoyed the pool area and really look forward to possibly welcoming you back should your travel plans include Sarasota in the future. Thank you again!

Let me start by saying that Hyatt is always our choice for accommodations because of their outstanding customer service. This trip has only increased our loyalty to the brand. Upon arriving, I casually mentioned that it is my significant other's birthday. Shortly after getting settled into a beautiful room with a view we were surprised with a complimentary cheese board and bottle of wine! Thanks to all the amazing staff. We'll be back often.

I was thrilled to have chose this hotel over the Ritz (which is right next door). Not only is it less expensive but wow do you get a lot of bang for your buck! Firstly we checked in on my birthday and were given an upgrade to a balcony room over the bay (lovely!) and we were able to check in before noon, great start! The front desk staff were smiley and helpful. there is a $15 Amenity Fee that includes 2 bottles of water, use of all the facilities, wifi and is totally worth it. We kayaked in the bay and spent many hours at the beautiful pool. We will be back again without a doubt, what a great place, thank you Hyatt for helping make my birthday so great!
(the only non 5 star I gave was for sleep as my room was across from the ice machines and elevators and so I was woken a few times throughout the night).

Room Tip: Try a room facing the bay with a high floor away from the ice machines and elevators!

We stayed over a weekend and enjoyed every minute. Our room was on the 8th floor and had a balcony overlooking the Sarasota coastline with views of the Gulf. Several very positive factors: we parked for free in the nearby self-park lot (some spaces were covered!), the room was clean and comfortable, the service was attentive and our room had a wi-fi hotspot in it so that the free connection was instant and strong (why doesn't every hotel do this?).

We lounged by the pool extensively, enjoying the sun, the poolside service and the setting. The pool fronts on a small inlet from the Gulf; several times, manatees swan within easy viewing distance. The hotel charges a $15/day resort fee, which entitles you to free use of paddle boards, bikes and pedal style boats. We took the bikes out Sunday morning and rode south through Marina Jack park and some of the waterfront neighborhoods. (The bikes were easy to get and were in good shape.) We made it back to the hotel for a quick bite by the pool before checking out.

Tommy, one of the managers, helped with dinner reservations both nights. We ate at two wonderful restaurants nearby that cater mostly to locals, and they were fantastic.

All in all, a wonderful weekend retreat - which I highly recommend.

Room Tip: The hotel is perpendicular to the coastline, so rooms on both sides look out parallel to the coast...

Sarasota is relatively small and easy to drive around. The Hyatt, relatively close to the bay, was a good hotel- very nice pool, friendly staff, rooms are very nice, good views, bar was good. Can't really go wrong.

Room Tip: You can get WiFi if you pay the "resort" rate for this hotel. Or you can get complimentary...
