“Loved this Hyatt!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

As expected, excellent service, beautiful decor, clean rooms, beautiful views, lovely, pool, and easy parking. It is not a resort, so go to Hyatt Clearwater Beach for that, but for a business and even leisure stay close to the city, mall, stadium and airport, definitely a great place to stay. We would definitely stay there again!

For the amount of money spent on this hotel/resort there was no wow factor. We were only given one wash cloth for two people. The pool was pretty small for the size of hotel. It is definitely not worth the money.

I was here for a short business trip, so I really didn't get to enjoy the hotel. That was a bit disappointing, because it is really nice.

Pros:
- Very clean, spacious, comfortable rooms (some overlook the bay. Mine did not.)
- Free wifi
- Attractive outdoor space - nice outdoor pool (which I didn't use); a boardwalk that takes you out to the bay for some scenic views
- Free parking in their garage
- Very close to the airport

Cons:
- No free breakfast
- Other than the onsite restaurant(s), no restaurants in walking distance (but quite a few within a short drive)

It was a great value for the price I paid, but please note that I was paying my companies negotiated discount rate.

Room Tip: Some rooms overlook the bay

We stayed two nights, August 1st and 2nd, and had a wonderful time. We did not have a bayside room but it was bright and was a great spot to view the sunrise. Rooms were well spaced, immaculate,updated, the beds were very comfortable, and the bathroom was well stocked. Service was spot on helpful and friendly. They made us all feel special and important regardless of how we looked (tired), smelled (fishy), or when we were all showered and dressed-up ready to go out. We walked the nature trail a few times, fished off the dock with our morning Starbucks coffee (free in the lobby before 7am), had our complimentary lemonade and cookies in the afternoon, played bean bag toss, ping pong, and had frozen drinks at the pool side bar in the early evening. I would most definitely stay there again- with family, for a couples weekend, or a girls getaway.

Green Features: Beautiful nature walk! You would have no idea that you were only a 5 minute drive to the airport!

i always stay at this hotel when I am visiting the west coast of Florida. The rooms are large and furnished with modern, light-colored furniture, and I often have a panoramic view of lovely Tampa Bay. The staff, from van driver to check-in desk people to waitstaff at their several restaurants go out of their way to be helpful, friendly, and efficient--but not falsely effusive. The atmosphere is that of an oasis away from the cares of the world, with a long, mangrove-lined boardwalk to a bayside gazebo or a very nice restaurant (Oystercatchers), with nice surprises like white ibises digging for their supper or little fiddler crabs climbing the trees to scavenge tender leaf tips. I always feel relaxed, cared for, away from it all, and well-fed by the time I need to catch a flight home.

First of all, Kenny. My husband checked us into our casita with Kenny and Kenny is THE BEST! We live in Florida but visited Tampa for a concert and my brother-in-law joined up with us. Our original plan was to have one casita and get BIL a rollaway bed. We had our dog with us also and quickly realized that the room was becoming pretty crowded. We went back to Kenny to see what we could do… the hotel was quite full but Kenny managed to hook us up with another casita for BIL and did not break the bank!! We love you, Kenny, wherever you are. Because of you, we will be back to the Grand Hyatt Tampa Bay whenever we are in town. I loved the area for the casitas! They are tucked into the lush and beautifully maintained tropical gardens. They are also incredibly convenient when traveling with a dog… no elevators or long hallways to negotiate when a puppy has to potty! We also very much enjoyed the additional pool, etc.. for the casita community - the only issue we had there was that the poolside bar is not open during the week so we had to go into the restaurant bar to get our drinks which is not a big deal, we understand why. However, the daytime bar service was astonishingly slow! Each time we were left waiting and dripping wet while people just kept walking by us. Each time we had to hunt down the bartender and I hate having to do things like that. We couldn't really tell if the place was open or not because the wait time (dripping wet) to get a drink was absurd - a little bit of a glitch. But on Friday the poolside bar was open and our bartender was awesome! All in all, we had a fantastic getaway!!

Room Tip: Book a casita!
