I am not familiar with Hyatt's so I can't rate this hotel in terms of the brand. I was in town for a wedding at the zoo, just a 5 minute walk from the hotel.
The view was impeccable - we had a 3rd floor room in the Santa Cruz bldg with the beach just in front of us - and furnishings were nice. We had drinks at the pool, which is quite small for the size of property. It almost seems like they bought a small motel years ago and then expanded around it.
They have a great breakfast buffet at the restaurant on property. We had room service twice, once was perfect and once was horrible.
The only downfall is that you're a taxi ride away from State Street, which is where all the action is.
I would definitely recommend the hotel to others...
