I choose the Hyatt because of its location. I would stay again on a trip to or through Tampa. The staff was more than accommodating. I'd even say gracious. Our room faced the bay at my request. Lovely view. We had a hypo-allergenic room. Why aren't all rooms so appointed!
The boardwalk was great, as was the gazebo.
I had a few minor complaints.
One is that the website did not indicate the hotel was renovating the lobby. It did not impact our stay.
The other was a $9.95 charge for wifi. When I asked at the desk about this the wifi was comped for us. These days no hotel should charge.
Third was the one cup coffee maker that hotels seem to be going to. The quality of the coffee is awful and the inconvenience for two travelers trying to get a decent cup was annoying.
Having said this we enjoyed our stay and would stay again.
