“Rooms have beautiful views of the bay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Love this hotel and location. Best breakfast buffet in area! Central to downtown and beaches. Always feel a sense of tranquility at this property. It has it all. Pool, nature trail, sand beach overlooking the bay are just some of the great amenities it offers.

My husband and I just spent 3 days in a casita room at this hotel. It was like staying at an upscale resort. The casitas are set in lush tropical gardens, have a beautiful pool/ beach and a wonderful restaurant - Oystercatchers which has a spectactucar view over the bay. Go there for a romantic sunset dinner. The whole experience was wonderful, service exceptional and very good value. I recommend staying there on your next visit to Tampa. The added bonus is that its only 10 mins from the airport.

Room Tip: Definitely worth staying in a casita room.

Thank you for taking time to share about your recent experience at our hotel. I am delighted to hear that you enjoyed your casita so much. We often hear enthusiastic feedback from our guests about the opportunity to have a room away from the bustle of the main hotel. Oystercatchers is a wonderful spot to watch the sun set over the bay and it is terrific that you were able to enjoy a romantic dinner there during your stay. I hope that we can welcome you back to our hotel again for a future weekend getaway.

Great service, outstanding staff, terrific setting. If you are looking for resort atmosphere, book a casita. If you want luxury, tower hotel, book the hotel. We were not thrilled when we checked in over a holiday and the hotel had active construction in progress. The service by a caring staff made it easy to overlook noise and distractions. Can't recommend the peace and quiet of the casitas enough. The staff went out of their way to attend to any misstep, and there was only one! So glad we ordered room service in casitas, believe it or not! Terrific...and we don't say that lightly.

Lots of work going on at the Grand Hyatt--updating the lobby. Very nice staff, and a good event venue as well...the rooms are spacious and luxurious, and tastefully decorated.
They have a gracious auto parking staff as well.
Nice play to spend a few days while in Tampa on business.

Room Tip: just depends on your preferences. The views of the Bay are very nice.

Every year we go to Florida at least for a couple of weeks, and we always end up our vacations in this hotel. It is really relaxing, the concierge, the doorman, the counter clerks, and the entire staff, are so nice and always looking for ways to go the extra mile. I always have a wonderful stay and the views are spectacular.

I stayed here once and was so impressed, I can't stay anywhere else. Stephen in room service is amazing. My fiance was simply craving chocolate. Stephen went above and beyond to accommodate us as in buying chocolate from the vending machines, had room service bring up cookies and chocolate covered strawberries just to take care of us. It left such a lasting impression on us, we came back on our honeymoon. Not only was Stephen there, he once again remembered us and made us feel like family. I have to mention Lauren at the front desk. We reserved a Casita for our honeymoon. It wasn't available during to circumstances beyond her control. She upgraded us and sent up a bottle of champagne. We were so happy and she literally made our honeymoon perfect. I love this hotel and the staff. They are the best.

This was not our first stay and again we were not disappointed. We knew the property was undergoing renovations, so that was not a problem. Front desk service was great as well as housekeeping. All our needs were met. Beautiful views from our room. Enjoyed the pool one afternoon, but thought the hot tub was a bit too hot for Florida in August. Will definitely return on our next visit to the Tampa area.
