Just returned from a 1 night day stay at the Hyatt Place, December 31 2012 post cruise. This hotel is fine for one night before or after a cruise. However, I wouldn't plan to stay here for a vacation. The location is good, the rooms are new and upgraded, and the 42 in TV is wonderful. However, the pool is very small which makes it difficult to have a "vacation feel". If you only need 1 night before or after a cruise it is fine. The internet, as other reviewers have noted, was not reliable. I would stay here again for a single night (or for a business trip) if the rate was good, but not for a family vacation. The buffet was very basic, but served our needs. It was unfortunate (and not the fault of the hotel) that we had many college age students staying in our hotel in town for a bowl game (presumably because the rate was so good).
