“One of my favorite hotels in Tampa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

I've been to Tampa approximately 15 times on business over the last 5 years and I must say that this is my favorite hotel to stay at while down there. The concierge desk was very helpful every time that I stayed down there. The gym at the property was great and had ellipticals and treadmills that have TV's right on them so you don't have to watch something that doesn't interest you. Their restaurant in the lobby area is pretty good and has amazing onion rings. The only minus about the hotel is that it is slightly away from the main strip where you have a number of restaurants and the International Plaza. The hotel staff is very friendly. You can usually get a pretty good deal if you have AAA.

It's been a while since I've stayed at a Grand Hyatt but I was pleasantly surprised by the level of service and the amenities at this particular location. It was only 5 minutes from the airport and shuttles were available to nearby restaurants and malls. My room looked out over the bay and the chaise lounge in the room was quite comfortable. I was also thankful for the vegan options on their restaurant menus. The only issue I had was that I was originally placed in a "casita" in the resort area. While very nice and picturesque, they were not soundproof so you could hear all the planes from the nearby airport. I asked to switch rooms and the staff was very accommodating. I will definitely choose this hotel again the next time I'm in Tampa.

I don't normally stay at a Hyatt. This seemed very nice. Good room. I liked both the keys (prox rather than swipe) and the safety lock (flip bracket rather than a chain). Made me feel much safer than standard hotel locks.
Room was nice with good view of the water and some city lights. Also very convenient to the airport and restaurants.
Gym was very spacious - first time I did not feel rushed at 6AM since there was enough equipment for all to use. Also liked the bottled water (free) in the gym, as well as stocked towels by an attendant at 6AM. Great Service.
Restaurant had a good breakfast, but $19 for buffett is high for me, but probably par for a hotel restaurant like this one.
Rooms were quiet and well stocked. Even had toothpaste and larger bottles for shampoo (size you can take on planes, not Costco size).
I left the DND sign up since my computer was in the room, and it did no get disturbed. Appreciate that.
It is a little hard to get to initially, even with GPS.

Room Tip: Bay side for the view

The grounds of this hotel are well kept and beautiful. They have 2 pools, one which has a small beach and dock, although no direct access to the bay. There are no pool bars, but towels and chairs are plentiful. The rooms are very clean and freshly appointed, almost like they have been recently remodeled. The beds are comfortable. Only downside to the rooms is that you can hear every noise in the hall. Maybe a door sweep might help that. Good tv and wifi.

Location is right on the bay and very close to the airport and downtown. There are a few restaurants you can walk to in 20 minutes or so and they have 2 restaurants on site.

Nice pools and work out facilities. This is a walkers paradise. You can walk several miles up the causeway and there is a walking and biking trail that goes for many miles opposite the causeway.

Very good stay for business or pleasure, and is close to major attractions and beaches.

We were on holiday from the UK and staying at indian rocks beach but wanted an extra night so we stayed near the airport before flying to Toronto.
Picked this hotel for location primarily but also quality.
We were very happy with the hotel. Room was clean and well furnished. There was no fridge but we asked at reception and they sent one up with no delay.
I was able to check in for the flight in the hotel lobby which was great aswell.
We used the pool, which was a bit of a surprise as it was very cold! well at least compared to the one we had enjoyed for the week at the condo. Was fine for one night but would have been dissapointing if we had been staying for the week here.
All the staff were very friendly and stored our bags when we arrived before check in time.
Only real criticism is the terrible road signs. Nothing... Even when i could see the hotel which road to take isnt clear and there doesnt seem to be any signs pointing you the right way.
Other than that, very happy to use again.

Spent two nights here in December 2012. Excellent, quiet location. Very clean.
Amazing breakfast bar, which is included in the room price if you mention that you have AAA.
Was able to check in to my flight from the hotel lobby.
Concierge very helpful, printed out many directions and information on tourist destinations for me.

Room Tip: You pay more for the water view rooms.

Outstanding location on the edge of the Bay. Airport close by. Beaches stretch out to the west. Hotel in generally good shape and personnel well-trained and attentive. Rooms are what you expect at a Grand Hyatt.
Be there close to sunset...thats what makes this worthwhile.
