I stayed here a Thursday night in June with my boyfriend after getting a great deal from a popular travel bidding website. You can’t beat the location of this Hyatt and if you’re a fan of modern decor you’ll feel at home here.
The lobby has a nice zen water fixture with contemporary design seating, adjacent to the bar which appeared to be empty. Doormen and security huddle around the side entrance by the front desk when most of the foot traffic comes from the front entrance by the Starbucks.
The bedroom had a nice wide flat screen tv and a nice view from the windows. We slept fairly well but I could hear noise from others in the corridor and it wasn’t that muffled by the walls. There was no mini-fridge in our room and this Hyatt doesn’t offer any continental breakfast. Wifi internet is only available free in the lobby, you need to pay for access in the room.
The bathroom has a sliding door but for some reason no towel racks. So after washing your hands or showering there’s no place to hang your towels. For the lazy who just throw things on the floor that won’t be an issue, but in my books no towel racks comes off as pretentious. The shower fixture was Kohler. The bathroom sink had excessive water pressure in that it was blasting from the faucet, which made a wet mess but hey, it’s better than no pressure at all.
The hotel has a nice outdoor patio with serviceable outdoor bars on the 17th floor and while we were touring around the amenities, two guys brought their takeout brown bag dinners to dine al fresco and a woman was reading on one of the lounge chairs. The outdoor pool is part of this patio but other than the few months of summer weather this city gets I can’t imagine it getting much use year round. We we looking for a hot tub/jacuzzi and asked the front desk but there is none unfortunately.
There’s a Starbucks conveniently located downstairs and if you’re hungry for more substantial fare, the hotel is right across from a strip of restaurants that cater to the theatre crowd on King Street West. The hotel’s restaurant is downstairs from the lobby but with so many options just steps outside, your wallet’s better off if you head out on the town.
Overall it was a nice comfortable stay but if I hadn’t scored a great deal from the bidding website I wouldn’t have stayed here otherwise. The rack room rates appear to reflect the real estate and the decor but that’s it in terms of value.
