Stayed at the Hyatt Regency downtown while visiting family in mid August. Got the room, as I usually do, via Hotwire.com. It was the only four-star hotel in the "downtown" area. The price was $94/ night. The 3 1/2 star hotel (which is usually the Radisson Riverside, across the street.) was $93/night, so I decided to get the nicer hotel for a buck more.
The lobby was very nice and check in was easy. The man at the front desk "upgraded me" to a corner ADH room. Which is a slightly bigger room with a walk in shower, but is handicapped accessible.
The room was clean, although a little outdated. The bed was a pillow top king-sized and was comfortable. I was very disappointed in the pillows There were three "toddler" sized pillows on the king sized bed. One was very soft feather pillow, one was a pancake pillow and one was an overly firm pillow. I am guessing the hotel does this to offer three different types of pillows to increase comfort. None of them were comfortable, and they were so small that you couldn't even turn onto your side without first moving the pillow. This made my night of sleep very restless. Wi-Fi was $9.99/ day. Most hotels in the area don't charge for internet access.
The bar is decent, although I did not try the food, the bartenders were very sociable. The drinks were very stiff! (if you like that kinda thing...I DO!). Parking was a reasonable $4/night in their parking garage.
All in all in wasn't the worst stay I had, but the pillow situation made my night less then comfortable.
