Pier Sixty-Six Hotel & Marina

Reviewed January 19, 2013

We stayed here on our return from a cruise for one night. Its VERY close to the port, which is handy but only annoying thing is that its on the other side of the 'bridge' which opens to allow cruise liners in & out. Can be time consuming and pricey as you watch the meter ticking while waiting for the bridge to open and close.
Although staff were friendly, they were all a little 'spacey'.
The hotel is massive and we had the room that had to of course be at the furthest point possible. We had our luggage and lots of shopping bags and no one even offered assistance to the room. We thought that was a little 'unusual' lack of service for the Americans who we always find very hospitable.
When we asked the staff about catching a train to Orlando, no one was very informative.
The room is very big, equipped with tv, desk, balcony and a very big comfortable bed. The bathroom is sooooooooo run-down and old. Toothpaste was supplied which we thought was pretty good!
Actually didn't explore surrounds so cant comment on location to anything else.

Stayed: December 2012, traveled as a couple

I had the chance to visit the newly renovated Spa 66 at the Hyatt this afternoon. I arrived an hour early to enjoy the amenities such as Fitness Center, Sauna, and Steam Room. Staff was very friendly and Jason was great at answering all my questions. I had a one hour massage with Jeff, who was an excellent therapist and a one hour facial with Camilla who was just a great. The fitness center was average and the waiting room could be a little more comfortable (they have modern sitting chairs in the waiting area instead of the typical lounge chairs found in spas). I enjoyed the dry sauna as well.

Hyatt Pier 66 is located near the cruise port. Location is ok, but a walk over the bridge is necessary for local restaurants. We were upgraded to a tower room which was fabulous. Appeared to be recently remodeled and it was immaculate. Other reviews here have noted run down rooms but we did not find that situation with our room at all. We have paid 3x the price we paid here per night for similar accommodations. Front desk staff was friendly,efficient and helpful.

We stayed at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six on the 2nd & 3rd of January prior to going on a cruise. We arrived around noon and were expecting to have to wait for a room because the check-in time is 4pm. However, the very helpful person at the front desk checked us in right away and upgraded us to a delux room on the 13th floor which had a fantastic view of Port Everglades and north along the coast. Our room and bathroom were very clean and it was a lot more than we were expecting.

Although the hotel is not on the beach they offer a complimentary shuttle to and from the beach which we used on the first day. There is also a Water Taxi stop nearby which costs $20 per day, but it takes you all around most of the the main attractions. The pool area is exceptional. The pool is large with more than enough deck chairs, and all around there is beautiful landscaping. Inside the hotel we ate dinner in the 'Lounge'. The meal and service were exceptional. Breakfast was in the Mariners' which again was exceptional. We opted for the buffet, but you have the option of ordering from the menu. When we checked out we were going to get a taxi. However, when we arrived at the front entrance there was a shuttle bus waiting that was going to Port Everglades. It was $7 per person which is about the same as a taxi, but much more convienient. Overall we had a great two nights at the Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six which totally exceeded our expectations. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anybody coming to Ft Lauderdale.

Room Tip: Try to get room on a high floor in the main tower which has a balcony with a view of Port Everglades...

Once again during a stay in Fort Lauderdale we had dinner at Pier 66. Steaks are unbelievable and fish in wonderful. This stay we had the sea bass which was absolutely delicious. The couple we were with had the filet mignon and said it was better than Morton's. The service is excellent and the atmosphere is wonderful. Sits on the water with great views of many yachts in the harbor.

Room Tip: Make a reservation and ask for a window seat!

Marina view bottom floor. So nice to walk outside your room to see so many gorgeous boats. And the grounds are lively. Food is decent at all the restaurants. Folks... This is not a beachside hotel. That requires a shuttle or cab. It's total luxury though. 24 hour hot tub and pool.

We booked 3 rooms for the night of Dec 29th, the night before our cruise left. After arriving at 5 PM, we got word that one of our rooms was not ready, which was disappointing. The staff was helpful, but still disappointing. We finally got into the room about 7 PM, which is pretty late to understand despite being a full hotel.

The lobby and rooms were nice. We had a tower room, but as other reviews have said, the lanai rooms do not appear nearly as nice. The views of the ocean and the port were excellent.

I would not classify this hotel as a 4 star hotel, but perhaps a 3-3.5 star.

Overall, if you can get a tower room for a decent rate, I would recommend it.
