“Beautiful rooms!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Love the renovation! The last time we stayed her was pre room reno - WOW! The rooms are clean, beautiful and modern. Their new key system is cool because you cannot de-magnetize them.

We had a bit of a hitch with our door lock around 9:45p and were locked out for about an hour. The hotel responded quickly with concern. They gave us drinks an breakfast for the inconvenience. They handled it very well. Kudos!

Do not waste your time or money at the extremely underwhelming and overpriced Oystercatchers restaurant on property.

Stayed in the Casitas Friday March 22 to Sun March 24th.

Let me start by saying the Casitas are well appointed. We had 2 small dogs so we had no choice by glad we didn't :)

The grounds are beautiful. The service excellent. This is why. I forgot to ask for late checkout. I called the front desk and was advised that the Hotel was sold out on Sunday and that late check out would be tough.

I then proceeded to the Hotel Lobby and spoke with a brilliant lady at the front desk. I apologize but I forget her name. She is the Dutch lady. I explained that I had 2 small dogs and that I would be at the ball game between 1 and 4pm.

She pulled a rabbit out pf a hat and extended my check out to 4pm. She made our trip!

Thank you Hyatt Tampa Bay and to the people who make things happen.

The hotel is grand, buy isolated. Unless you plan to stay on the premises, which wb easy and desirable to do, you need a car to get anywhere
Lovely little boardwalk thru the nature preserve to another part of the compound. Great restaurants too.

It's so easy to rate a hotel when everything goes well from the beginning--lovely reception, easy check-in, an unexpected upgrade, a room that looks so much better than it did online. But, what happens when things don't start out so well? That's when you know EXACTLY what kind of hotel/corporation with whom you are dealing. I'm not a big fan of chain hotels. My husband and I prefer those secret places that have yet to be discovered. Yet, four of the last six years when we've returned to Tampa for Yankee spring training, we've stayed at the Grand Hyatt. We always look forward to spacious, clean accommodations, quick and efficient service from check-in to check-out, an occasional upgrade, friendly staff and just the peace of mind that comes from being part of familiar surroundings. This week, our run of luck nearly came to a screeching halt. We checked in late afternoon and we're assigned the room we had requested. We were escorted by a member of the Bell Staff to our premier room with a bay view. As soon as she had left the room we discovered a dirty diaper staring at us from a trash can in the middle of the room. My husband returned to the Front Desk, alerted them to the situation and within ten minutes we had been escorted by a Head Housekeeper to a lovely corner suite on the same floor, complete with added hotel benefits, apologized to ad nauseum, and assured if there was anything they could do for us to be sure to let them know. Now, that's real five star treatment. Among those who went above and beyond we thank Justin (Front Desk), Head of Housekeeping, Steven (Club Lounge) who opened a few minutes early to quench our thirsts, and the entire car Valet Staff who were at the top of their game regardless of the time of day.
Baseball gods willing, we will return to Tampa next March and we can't wait to spend what time we have "off the baseball diamond" at the Grand Hyatt Tampa and would encourage anyone traveling in the area to do the same.

This hotel has stunning views of Tampa Bay!!! Just checked out today. I stayed here for one week while I was in Tampa for a business conference in downtown Tampa. The hotel is located directly on the bay. It is also very close to the airport, and provides a free shuttle to the airport every 30 minutes. The hotel also provides a free shuttle to two local shopping malls. It has 3-4 on-site restaurants. They are all delicious!!! Fitness center is very nice. Beds are comfortable. Room service and concierge go out of there way to make guests feel welcome. Very clean!!!
It is a little drive to downtown which made it a little inconvenient for us, but that really isn't the hotels fault.
Would stay here again if visiting Tampa.
