I stayed several nights while attending a conference at the Hyatt Regency Mission Bay. I stayed in a room in the tower. The room was very comfortable and had great views of the sun setting over the bay-- absolutely beautiful. I had no complaints with the service.
Even though it was December, I enjoyed the pools and hot tub-- all were mostly empty, but I could imagine that it would get very crowded in the summer. The pool bar had good food and drinks, although typically priced for this class of hotel (mixed drinks $8 and up). I did not try the Red Marlin restaurant but a colleague who did said the food was excellent, though very expensive.
When booking this hotel, be aware of its location! As others have mentioned, although the property itself is beautiful it is not really in walking distance to much of anything. This makes it great for 'getting away from it all' but not the most ideal for tourists without a car. However, if you are like me and don't mind being adventurous, the #8 bus stops right outside the hotel and goes north to Pacific Beach, and south to Old Town. For $5 you can get an all day pass-- much cheaper than taking taxis everywhere! You can also walk from the hotel to SeaWorld-- ask the concierge to point you in the right direction. The walk is really beautiful along the bay, although you have to cross a busy highway at the end (with crosswalk and walk signal). It took me about 25 minutes each direction.
Overall I was extremely satisfied with my stay-- it really exceeded my expectations.
