“Not Impressed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

The lobby was impressive, and riverfront view from room was nice (if you get one, the hotel is huge and tons of rooms have no view) but that was about it. It was pricey for a city like Jacksonville and you didn't really get anything for the money. The room reminded me of an older run down vegas hotel (dirty carpet floors, kinda smelled), the room has no fridge, and no thermostat. The AC was set to ice cold, and was always on so the room was loud. Shower didn't heat up one of the nights (youd think a cold shower on a summer evening would be nice but not when the room is ice cold). Parking is $15-20 a day, internet is $20 a day. Not a horrible hotel but you feel like you are getting ripped off, nothing in return for the price.

We were staying at the Hyatt Riverfront-Jacksonville for a wedding. Self-
parking in garage (separate ownershp) was convenient but pricey if you don't negotiate discount for your event. JazzFest was in progress and we could walk to events. Business Plan has buy 1 breakfast buffet/get one free + other amenities. The hotel is beautiful, has very decent gift shop, wonderful beds...overall a pleasant experience.

The hotel is in a good location but I had some issues with it: the valet took a while to take my car, the bathroom was a little unkept, the water is unusually soft (maybe its a Jax thing?), I had issues with the water temperature on the sink. Other than that the staff was very friendly.

We went to J'ville for the jazz festival and stayed at Hyatt Regency for one night. We checked in online, received an email by 11 am that the room was ready, including the room number, and then bypassed the check in line by using the kiosk in the lobby to receive our keys - fabulous system!! Our king room was lovely, a/c was on and the room was cool when we arrived. Overall, we were extremely pleased with our accommodations and the riverfront location is stunning indeed. We sat in the bar with friends twice during our stay and service was quite nice, friendly and efficient. A terrific property that I recommend and would definitely stay again.

I brought my family to a conference and we had a great time. The setting is right on the river with a boardwalk to restaurants and shops right next door. Great views. Very nice. I would stay there again, but don't wander too far from the river. The neighborhood changes. It is fun to hike over the bridge and there are many restaurants right on the water.

My husband and I just returned from 7days in Jacjksonville, Florida where we stayed at the Hyatt Regency. It was wonderful. We were fortunate to be in the Presidential Suite. All hotel workers were pleasant and attentive. The rooms were clean and quite spacious. I was underwhelmed with the Gift Shop. That, however, is very minor. The restaurants were good and it was nice to be so close to The Landing. It was in a good spot for nice walks. I felt very comfortable there.

Green Features: They did not suggest a way to use towels and linens more than once to be environmentally friendly. They were changed on a daily basis.
