Stayed at the Hyatt 48 Lex last weekend for three nights and was just blown away when I walked into my room. The room size was fine since I was alone, tucked into a far corner and very quiet, beautifully appointed in contemporary grays and whites, and with a great kitchen area completed with a drawer dishwasher!
There was a great lounge on the second floor with a wonderful coffee/latte machine available all day. My disappointment at breakfast is that they only had juices, fruit and pastries, no protein at all for those that don't eat carbs. I ended up going out to buy my own yogurt which I kept in the refrigerator. The maid kept taking the spoon I had borrowed from the lounge, since there were no utensiles in the room. Why have a great mini kitchen, but no silverware(or plastic even).
Just when I was telling all my friends what a great hotel, I returned the third day at 5:30 to get ready to go out, only to find my room had not been made up. When I called the desk I was told they had until 6:00pm to make up the room. They did have a maid there within ten minutes, but I had to go to the lounge to get out of her way. While there, I tried to print my boarding pass, but the printer was down.
The staff in the lounge for breakfast was perfunctory, not especially friendly. There was a man there the first morning (more of a concierge) who was very helpful with guest trying to plan their day. Never ate in the restaurant because a woman I met said the her meal was not good and it didn't get great reviews online. There is a great Greek restaurant right next door that as a woman alone I felt very comfortable eating at the bar.
Will go back if I can get a good rate.
