“Very Glad We Stayed Here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2012

We arrived later on the evening of Feb.3rd, 2012, as the airline lost our luggage and delayed our arrival and dinner plans. We met with Jonathan, who had taken our reservation earlier in the month. He remembered us, was very helpful, friendly and responsive to two very weary travelers, as was Michael and the rest of the front desk staff.Jonathan asked us several questions to help us and was a delight to deal with that evening. The next morning the airline again mixed up the details to drop off our luggage, and even though we had checked out, the hotel and front desk staff were aware of the problem and offered to hold our luggage for us, call us when it arrived, and pick us up at Busch Gardens at the end of the day. Michael was the manager on duty that evening and our luggage was still not to be found. The only phone number we had for the airline, was an answering machine, so Michael went quietly about providing us with two other numbers, called them for us, and our luggage finally arrived. He managed to connect with an airline employee that connected with the driver that had our lost luggage. Due to Michael's help, we had our suitcases! The staff that evening (including Jonathan) were concerned, helpful, and tried to ease our frustration. They were wonderful! Thank you to these lovely people!! We will stay there again because of them, especially Michael, and due to the Hyatt Place being such a nice hotel. Clean, great breakfast, good location to restaurants, stores etc. Thank you Hyatt Place Busch Gardens!

Room Tip: We stayed on the top floor. The suite was clean, quiet and the bed very comfortable. Good evening al...

Hotel quality was average with other Hyatt Place Properties we have stayed at. The complimentary breakfast was average as well. The hotel staff were very friendly. The shuttle was very convenient for travel to and from Busch Gardens. The pool was warm for night time swimming. The excercise room was adequatly furnished with modern equipment. I purchased a bottle of Febreeze to try to mask the smell of the room during our 7 night stay. The house keeping staff did not vacuum our room the 7 night stay. I left a message with the hotel manager John about our stinky room, but he did not bother to return my call. Our clothes smelled just like our room when we were flying home. The smell was a very strong body odor and stinky feet.

The bed was as stiff as sleeping on concrete. If a hard bed is desired, this is the bed for you!

The rooms were enough large to fit a family of five and reasonably priced. The services available at hotel were great and the breakfast was excellent.

This a great little hotel that is centrally located and has very spacious rooms. The staff were very nice and helpful, the room was massive with two beds and then a huge sitting area that had a big couch, a desk and a little kitchenette. Very clean and comfortable, I would stay there again.

Very loud outdoor live music from a local bar was still going on after 2 am on a Friday night. Unless you're the kind of person yelling "woohoo, turn it up" at that time of day, you won't be happy. Hotel is near the intersection of 2 very busy roads, making local travel a traffic jam nightmare. Yes, it's close to Busch Gardens if that's the only thing you care about.

We booked our room through priceline and we were willing to get something a little less than great as long as it was affordable. We were VERY suprised with the quality of our room at the Hyatt for the price we paid. The staff was very friendly and helpful! The free breakfast was actually pretty good. More choices than waffles or bagels that you normally see. You do have to reserve your spot on the shuttle to and from Busch Gardens however, if you decide to return to the hotel earlier than scheduled they will pick you up if you call them! Overall our experience was great and we will be staying there again!

Room Tip: They do NOT offer a microwave in the room.
