The hotel definitely shows some age, but it's still a Hyatt both on hard product and customer service.
It does have accepted way too many tourist groups, however. If that's the way it survives, let it be...but it does leave bad impressions for the guests.
Basically, the building is old, the lobby is nice, the hallway of the rooms is wide and has high ceilings, but obviously they are pretty old. The rooms, however, are nicer, which newer stuff. They are large and comfortable. I think all of them are suite sized.
Still, the appliance side is a bit out of date. The shower/tub combination is old, the bathroom is small.
The front desk agent was very nice. The system somehow passed my e-standby upgrade even if they sold out that day. So I got breakfast for two for 4 bucks more, which is money well spent.
The biggest problem with this hotel is that there are way too many "groups" staying here. Apart from tourist groups, I also see high school kids here for whatever reason. Anyways, this makes everything full, the pool, etc. They were having a pool baseball there using a foam stick as the bat and some sort of floatable bag as the ball -- a great fun for them but pretty much banning everyone else from using the pool...
The breakfast here is really, really nice. It's a full breakfast with quite a few hot items and lots of choices on the cold spread. Again, tour group was separated to use another room but they had been noisy, and...it just didn't feel right...
Overall very solid hotel, though showing its age, it is a good stay.
