I am so glad Hyatt Place has finally come to NYC. This hotel just opened a few days before my March 18 arrival. The place was ready for guests! The rooms were spacious and tastefully done (we had a double double view) with wonderful beds and a great view. We slept well!
The check in was seamless and everyone was pleasant and professional.
The next morning we woke up at 8:30 and went downstairs for breakfast at 9:35. Oops, breakfast ends at 9:00. No problem, really. I should have checked (or maybe I was told and forgot).
The off putting incident came when I helped myself to a cup of coffee (the dispensers had not been removed) and a scowling odd little man in a suit came over and said "you must pay..no more free coffee." Er, ok. I asked what time the free coffee ended. He said 9:30. I shook my head and said "really"? He glared at me for a second then waved his hands and said, "ok, ok, just one cup."
There was another guest that heard the whole exchange and he shook his head and said to me, "whoa, that was not pleasant." Yeah.
So, I'll be back for sure but they really should consider breakfast till 10 (it is NYC after all) but even if they don't, at least tell the little guy in the suit to smile and be a bit more hospitable.
