“Not beachfront, no full-time restaurant-ok for cruise”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

We stayed here two nights before Allure of Seas cruise. Made reservations through Hotwire as beachfront "area" of course not on beach at all. Before I rag on the hotel I will say the friendliness of the staff and the convenience to shopping and the cousin we also visited made up for no beach. The room was smallish, tired and there were spots on the skirt of the bedding. The bed was comfortable, the room quiet and the breakfast which was only available in the morning was okay. The hostess was terrific. We were able to take the trolley over the bridge to shopping areas and restaurants in the day. We arrived late and hungry and had to order in from pizza joint - ugh.

Thank you for sharing your candid comments about your stay with us. We hope you enjoyed your cruise. We are sorry you were disappointed about not being directly on the beach and did not have a chance to sample the food in one of our onsite restaurants (depending on the place, they all close between 10-11 pm). We are glad that the friendliness of our staff and close proximity to shopping and restaurants (and the visit with you cousin!) made for a memorable stay after all. We hope you will return if your travels bring you back to Fort Lauderdale.
Regards,

This hotel is amazing, right on the water it feels like youre in the bahamas...The property is HUGE but they have everything you need! two seperate areas...The Towers give you ocean views all around, and the lower properties give you terrace/ pool view...So either way you cant loose...Its stunning how beautiful it is...The room was spacious and island like...Bay doors, Ceramic tiled floors, white clean aesthetic...it was awesome...I sat on the balcony and just listened to fountains at night...The food was great too! Staff was awesome...most def a great experience.

Stayed in the Marina/garden rooms when we cruised out of Ft. Lauderdale last year. We enjoyed our stay so much we have reserved a room in December before our cruise to the Southern Caribbean.We really enjoy using the water taxi that has a stop at this Hyatt.Also like the Pelican restaurant at the end of marina on water.Pretty pool and relaxing atmosphere.

Room Tip: Have not stayed in the tower rooms. Enjoy the marina/garden pool rooms.

stayed in the garden area during the week. it was not very crowded. The pool area was very clean and looked really cool. the lights in the pool were neat. the grill 66 was an awesome restaurant. the room was very clean.the staff was extremely helpful. The exercise room was nice but was kind of hidden.

This is still a great location and I had a good night's sleep here. But the hotel's service took a stumble with me this past week.

Like the rest of us when we travel, we rely on internet access. Once I got to the room i could not successfully connect to the internet. The hotel's service line said they would send someone-after an hour no one had shown up. In the interim I called the 800 number to talk with tech support who tracked down that it was an issue at the hotel. They said they were contacting the hotel and i did as well to advise them to expect a call from Tech Support. Bottom line no internet connectivity that night, and it was still down when i checked the next AM.

No followup call to me, nor did anyone seem to care

Disappointing service, I have stayed at this hotel maybe 20 times, fortunately I have other options in Lauderdale to choose from

I just returned from 5 days in Ft Lauderdale and stayed at the Hyatt , the location was excellent for me, I needed access to the strip and mostly to all of Ft Lauderdale and south fla. , the Hyatt is right on the intercostal with a water taxi stop. great highway access as well less than 15 minutes from the FLL airport, the rooms are great with excellent balcony views of both the intercostal and the ocean, they are huge. the only negative is the maid service was poor , not sure why she didn't replace toiletries or clean balcony , therwise the staff is friendly and the rates were very reasonable. except for parking ouch!! 21 /25 for self or valet.

Room Tip: get a high floor

A busy well run hotel. The building itself reminded me of Bill and Ben the Flowerpot men from the 60s. We enjoyed our stay here. The restaurant Pier 66 was excellent. Great views from our room. The hotel is a little out of the way but if you have transport that is not a problem. The Pelican restaurant on the pier is very tired I have to say. When we ate at this restaurant all views from there are blocked from the tables by Steven Spielberg's enormous floating blue palace ! The food was acceptable though.

Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your experience. We are happy you enjoyed your visit , especially the view from your room and the food and service at Grille 66 restaurant. Our marina attracts both small and large vessels and Mr. Spielberg's yacht has certainly been a huge attraction to a lot of our guests (sorry for the obstructed view from the Pelican). We hope to welcome you back soon!
