“Great location and great hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2005

I just returned from a 3 nights stay at the Hyatt Regency and I have no idea why this place is getting bad reviews! I do a ton of leisure traveling and I loved this place. The hotel itself is beautiful with an amazing lobby and a GREAT lobby bar (13 views) wut an equally great happy hour! We stayed on water side and had a OK view but the room was terrific. Two comfortable double beds, LOTS of room, and a nice bathroom with a seperate area to get ready in. Nice layout. The best part had to be the location. You are right next to the Embarcadero Ferry Station that has lots of cute shops. Also right on the F-line to Fisherman's wharf, easy ride for $1.25 and right on the California Cable Car line $3, as well as right by the BART system. There are breakfast places right outside of the hotel to grab a quick bite before your meeting or site seeing. I would stay at the Hyatt again in a minute.

I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero for five nights while I attended a conference. The location and surrounding area is great - very scenic, safe and transportation very accessible.

I found the Hotel to be of poor quality including atmosphere, linens, and bedding. The room was very noisy with street noise - the sliding glass door seemed poorly sealed. While the staff was helpful, the quality of the facility was hardly worth the price. There is absolutely nothing at the Hyatt Regency Embarcadero that provides any chance for relaxation or enjoyment. While the food was adequate it was completely overpriced.

I've stayed at other Hyatt facilities and always found them to be very nice and well worth the price, so $200/night was an astronomical amount for a less than average facility
