Okay some people are reviewing this unfairly in my opinion.. how can the hotel be blames for seagulls when you are obviously aware it is close to the sea.
Anyway be objective when you read these reviews, some people take things way too seriously and complain about things that have nothign to do with the hotel.
i'll review as much as I can, quickly:
Medium to Large, huge console ( see my pictures ) Loved the mirror and lights in the the mirror, how cool. Loved the shower it was addictive, I took showers even when I didn't need it because it was so good. Lots of space on the counter and floor area and it was spotless ( love this! )
Unbelievably comfortable, I was lost in the sheets and pillows and with free movies ( more on that later ) it was hard to leave the hotel bed to see the city.. one afternoon I came home early at 5pm and took a nice nap. The rest of the room was big again and not cluttered. I had a desk, another bed, a side chair, long console in there and a little area where the fridge and another console were located. the room was great.
Wonderful, friendly and very busy. I checked in quickly but when a whole bus load of people arrive of COURSE you have a lineup, what do you expect on a Saturday morning. Anyway the lobby at times was full of people checking in but when I checked in I breezed right through because I checked in during off-peak hours not on a saturday morning (duh)
Valet/Conceirge guys were lovely and accomodating and super helpful
Kitchen/Restaurant staff were wonderful.
Whatever you do, GET THE BREAKFAST. Loved it they have everything you could imagine for breakfast. Soup, bagels, eggs (cooked just for you), sandwiches, fruit, oatmeal, cereal a variety of everything. I never get up for hotel breakfasts beause thy're always continentl but the Hyatt went over and above for this lovely spread and I was able to enjoy it every single day.. it's worth getting up early to go. The breakfast closes at 10:30am.
The lounge is lovely and quiet because people don't probably knwo about it. I sat in there two days for hours surfing the net in peace and quiet. If you dont' want to hang out in your room. Go here. The food is also NOT expesive.. $15 for a burger is cheaper than most other places, picture included
lovely, didn't disappoint. They have a full kitchen open till 11. They do the breakfast, lounge and room service all perfectly. I'd say 4 start dining, very clean and quick. They have everything you could ever want. TIP: Vanilla Icecream is Orgasmic with fresh strawberries..
Close enough to everything. All the important buses STOP at the Hyatt as opposed to other hotels. They ahve a back entrance just for hopping on and off various buses so it's not disruptive to the hotel lobby. The buses are: Air Porter, Capilano Suspension Bridge, All the Tours Doesn't seem like much but some hotels don't offer this and their guests coem to the Hyatt. How lovely it is to get off the bus and be "home" unlike other htoel-guests who have to then walk a few blocks to their hotel... As everyone said Robson e.t.c.
Okay so, it wasn't all perfect. They do nor have a policy for FREE Wi-Fi. To me this is a huge fail that almost derailed my enjoyment of the hotel. I brought my laptop and when I asked about internet and was told it was $15, you could have knocked me over with a feather. With the level this hotel is at I would expect better internet policy. If it's not free it should be very cheap. This is was very big for me, I complained about it while I was there.. to me that's like not havign a phone. In fact Id' rather internet than TV and Phone combined.
Another weird thing was charging us to phone locally.. I know it's a recession but sheesh!
To get clients like myself, offer us a personalize dpackage.. i.e. free internet over some of the other things that are available for free. Internet is so important I would have not come back to this hotel had they not rectified the situation (great staff)
Another issue is the Wi-Fi has a low signal in the dining room.. this is bad because people like me with bad manners like to surf while they eat lol. So please add a booster in this room so we can have access!!!!!!!!!! Stat!!!! The signal was better in the lounge and this was right next door.
I didn't go to the pool/gym or anythign else.. but I need my internet!!!!!!
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. I got a gret deal, ask for packages if you want the best. I would defintitely go back to this hotel as it is cheaper than Fairmont but comparable as far as Value, Location, service and Amenities.
Happy Trippin.. hope you enjoy Vancouver whatever hotel you stay at is just icing on the cake in this great Canadian City!
