My husband and I recently visited Long Beach as tourists and could not have been happier with our choice of hotel. We had a wonderful time from check-in (we arrived at noon and our room was ready) to check-out (the front desk staff member asked how our stay was, thanked us for choosing the Hyatt and our bill was correct).
The hotel lobby was open and attractive with many comfortable seating areas - a nice place to relax, read, do computer work or just people watch. Our room had obviously been recently remodeled, was spotless and tastefully decorated. The bathroom was very nice with a large walk-in shower. Unlike several previous reviewers we liked the hand with the apple. It provided a low light if you got up at night. The motion light on the base of the bedside table was great, too, in the dark room. It was obvious that a lot of planning went into the room with the guests in mind. Nearly every staff member went out of their way to greet us.
We ate at Tides restaurant each morning. The buffet was one of the most expansive I have ever seen for breakfast. They had just about everything you could possibly want. It was quite impressive and tasted great. The servers were all very attentive. Our only negative experience with staff came at the Lobby Bar. The bartender bordered on rude and the cocktail waitress was very loud and obnoxious – complaining about everything and everybody. After that experience for the rest of our stay we walked two blocks north to the Renaissance Hotel where they had a fantastic happy hour, very friendly bartenders and a beautiful lighted bar.
The location of the hotel was ideal. We did not have a car and were able to walk to most places and if we weren’t there was a free shuttle bus that goes around downtown Long Beach that stopped in front of the hotel. It could not have been more convenient and came every twelve minutes.
I have never been a big Hyatt fan but I will probably stay at another Hyatt in the future based on this experience. I would highly recommend it.
