“Would have been better in a different room.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

I stayed here for four nights. The grounds were beautiful. I didn't get to use the pool with water slides or jacuzzi as I was there for a business seminar and did't have the time. The room was nice and spacious and could tell that it was older but had been remodeled partially. The bed was clean and comfortable. The view of the marina from the balcony was nice.

The room was the loudest I've EVER stayed in. I was in room 810 in the tower next to the elevator and the marina. The elevator made it sound as if there was a loud cart being pushed down the hallway on a concrete floor every few minutes. The sound of the traffic was incredibly loud as well. There was a sound machine in the room, but sadly the only sounds it seemed to cover were the sea lions. I wouldn't have minded listening to them, rather than the elevator and traffic. I should've asked to move, but I didn't feel like packing again. It was brutal and I'm not that picky about noise. Worse sleep ever!

The room had a small refrigerator (which froze everything) and a coffee maker which was missing when I got there, but they were quick to bring me one once I rang them and assured them that I looked for it TWICE.

The room service menu was outrageously priced for what you received. The first night there I ordered Caesar salad (plain, no chicken), tortilla soup and cheesecake and it was around $45. The presentation was nice, the portions were huge, but the food was just average. (That old expression "putting lipstick on a pig" comes to mind.) For that price, I would've liked to have been blown away a little bit. For breakfast I had fresh fruit and ice water for $13. I did have dinner at the Restaurant on my last night and it was incredible! I had the scallops with risotto! (life changing! And reasonably priced, especially in comparison to my less than exciting, but huge portioned room service.)

Another strange thing, was we were there for a business seminar with most of the attendees staying a the hotel and the bar closed at midnight on Friday and Saturday night. I thought this was strange as there were tons of us there to network and exchange ideas and we all had to leave the convention center around 10 or 11pm so they could clean up, so we went to the bar to gather and then we all had to leave there at midnight so we gathered in the hotel lobby. Then the staff wasn't thrilled with the noise level due to the acoustics in the lobby. Seems to me they should let us stay in the convention center where we could continue to talk without disturbing anyone or leave us in the bar. We didn't need to be served alcohol, just needed the public space. Strange way of doing business, if you ask me. Or here's a novel idea, keep the bar open until normal bar hours and make a profit while people are gathered. It is a business, so you'd think they would want to actually make money as well as provide a meeting place for the people renting the conference facilities and hotel rooms...strange.

The wifi had great reception in the room. (Couldn't get service in the conference center.)

It was about a mile walk to the beach.

I would stay there again, but make sure to check my room before unpacking and pick up a to-go box of food from the restaurant and skip room service.

Room Tip: In the tower stay away from room next to elevator!! Marina side is loud from traffic and sea lions.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

I stayed here for three nights in November. The hotel's grounds were beautiful. Three heated pools with waterslides for the kids. I stayed in a Suite and had a balcony and two other windows with great views of the bay from all windows. Just didn't like that they charged for wifi in your room. Everyone there did everything to help to make your stay better.

Room Tip: The higher the better.

We stayed 5 nights in the Tower overlooking the bay and park area around the bay. Great views and sunset. We didn't use many of the amenities, but they appeared to offer a very nice pool / jacuzzi area with a nice adjacent restaurant.

The location is across the road from Sea World, but we did not encounter much traffic and the location made it easy to get to just about anywhere.

We visited the zoo, downtown waterfront, Old Town, La Jolla cove, sailing in the bay, and wine tasting at Temecula. There were a lot of entertainment options.

Had a real nice trip to celebrate our 36th anniversary.

The Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina has a great view of the harbor and marina. The rooms in the Tower (sixth floor) had a balcony with a wonderful overlook of the hotel property as well as the harbor. The maid service was slow, but okay. The bar had good food and was a good alternative to the expensive restaurant on the premise. The facilities for a conference were quite good and the staff helpful. The biggest drawback to the hotel is its isolation. You need a car to do much because you are too far from restaurants, shopping, or other activities to reach them without transportation.

Room Tip: If you stay in the Tower, you need to be up on fourth floor or higher for the better views.

Spent a week here in August with my wife and two sons. Stayed in one of the Harbourside Suites which has the most fabulous location overlooking the harbour full of boats and all the activity that goes aloing with that. These single storey buildings are easily accessible with plenty of parking right outside at the rear and also underground. HOWEVER as parking in the street is restricted you have no choice other than to park in the confines of the hotel and for that priviledge, of avoiding a parking fine, you pay a hefty overnight charge which is probably more than the fine for the parking violation ! Highway robbery, literally.
The staff were friendly enough, service good and the food in the Red Marlin restaurant excellent.
The pool was nice as was the area around it. Overall the location, with spectacular views / sunsets from the room is peerless and with a little investment this Hotel could be great. Simply the suites are tired and badly need refitted, decor, fittings and carpets If they were this would be an absolutly superb facility. Hyatt are slipping in not modernising here as the hotel is in a premier position on the bay .

We have stayed in many Hyatt hotels and this was the worst! We were in the suites along the marina. The carpets were filthy, there were nasty hairs in the sink and tub as though someone had just finished shaving. The sink was filled with what looked like cleaning water, it was blue with white crumbles. When moved to another room, we found the bathroom clean, but the carpets in the new room were equally disgusting! Get a carpet cleaner and new clean team Mission Bay Hyatt! Perhaps you should visit your Orange County location! They know how to service a hotel! This location is a disgrace to the name Hyatt!
