Stayed in November. Three times I informed employees working at the 4x weekly "managers reception" about the black stuff floating in the soda (from their soda fountain). Each time nothing was done. I did get a note from the regional manager telling me it has been addressed. We'll see as I am back for another stay now. Also it's kind of a pet peeve of mine when hotels don't allow you to control the room temp. The thermostat goes down to 65. This would be fine if it would ever get close to 65, but it doesn't (I have two digital thermometers to prove it.......why? It's a long story). They have the system set where it never gets below 70. Now 70 may sound ok to you but why tell me I can cool my room to 65 when I can't?? It is too warm to sleep for me. In the meantime when you go out in the hallway, you can see your breath it's so cold. Very irritating they won't let me crank the air in my room but they have it cranked to a very environmentally unfriendly temperature in the common areas. Other than that, the location right next to I-95 leaves a little to be desired but nothing you can do about that. Don't know what the guys who planned the building were smoking but the pool area is completely in the shade. No sun in November. They do let you go next door to the Hyatt Place which has plenty of sun. And they have these tiny towels about the size of a hand towel so you have to use 10 to cover your lounge chair. (Curiously the Hyatt Place has nice towels) Also no hot tub. But the pool was a good temperature (not too cold). They also have the slowest elevators in the known universe. I imagine there are elevators operated by donkey and rope in India that move people more expeditiously. Push the up button and sit down on a nearby couch to read the newspaper whole you wait. No ovens unless you get a two bedroom unlike other Hyatt Houses I have stayed at. Something to keep in mind if you are on extended stay and want to cook. Couches in rooms are very uncomfortable. This is mostly a place where people stay when going on a cruise and I would say for that you will be fine. A couple of nights you can tolerate just about anything. Overall not a horrible place and I am here again. They do need to get rid of the "Thai chicken" on the managers reception menu rotation. Plain chicken with no spices, a few diced peppers and a lot of green cabbage is NOT Thai food, it is garbage.
