I stayed here on a business trip with my family and company. We had an amazing time. The rooms were kept clean and the views were very nice. The best part of this hotel is the proximity to the Landing. There were so many parties going on down there and we all had a great time! The people at the front desk were very helpful.

Nice place altogether. The inside of the hotel is great. Lobby is real nice. I didn't eat at the restaurants in the hotel so I can't say alot about that. They look expensive though.
The location is the best thing about this place. Right across from the river walk and its nice benches and view of the water. There is a small outdoor shopping area a few blocks away with a food court with restaurants you would actually want and could afford if you're not wealthy.
Internet that should be free is $9.95 and you have to guess that there is a wire in the desk drawer. You would think it is wireless and there is no indication anywhere you would expect instructions on how it operates. Like on the desk itself!
The rest of the town is alot of office buildings and and parking lots some of it is boarded up or closed. So that's bad. But as far as the hotel itself goes, definately above average.

We booked this hotel through priceline and thought we got a pretty good deal. The hotel had excellent location by the riverfront, great views, and pretty, clean rooms. The first thing we noticed walking in was that it was hot, maybe 85 degrees in the room and despite the a/c being on, it did not cool down quickly. We figured it was because they were saving on cooling costs and hadn't turned it on so we went out to enjoy the riverwalk, but it was still hot when we returned and remained hot during the day through our staydespite shutting the curtains. I turned on my computer and found out that while the wireless in the lobby is free, in the rooms, it is a wired connection and you are charged $9.95/day for service. I've been to a lot of hotels in the past year and never been charged for the internet connection. Lastly, the day of departure, we got an additional $30 charge for the self-parking in the parking deck, a charge that was not disclosed in advance and written in very fine print on the door of the parking deck. All in all, very disappointing stay due to all the nickel and diming.

Chose hotel bcuz I’ve stayed at many Hyatt properties & I was very pleased with them. Reviews from this site & tripadvisor.com also influenced my decision, but boy was this a big mistake! When I first arrived & went to the room, I was sadly disappointed at the decor. The Hyatt standard room looked like a version of a lost in the 80’s scene, which is why u can only c the bed in the photo of the room. The furniture and scheme of the room was severely outdated. Now this was tolerable bcuz by this time, I was so glad to have made it to my room after a long drive that I just wanted to settled down. As I was about to sit down in the swivel chair at the desk, gross stains were on the seat so I had to cover it with towels. Yes, I know I should’ve said something about it then, but I just wasn't in the mood to complain. My mood quickly shifted though when I pulled back the top comforter later on. OMG BLOOD, yes BLOOD streaks were on the freak’in comforter! I couldn't believe this! In this day and age, this hotel did not train its staff properly on issues & dangers related to bodily fluids. While it is known that hotels rarely change their comforters (that's why I bring my own), since the Hyatt's comforters are snow white, they should make it a priority to change them frequently. Believe it or not, the issues didn't stop there. The walls are so thin that u can hear people making love in their room and even a whisper in the hall way. The slightest sound can be heard so u have to turn on the radio or something if u don’t want to be disturbed by the outside noise. I demanded that they change the room after being grossed out with the blood and all I was given was another room of subpar standards and free breakfast (go figure). Got to the new room, pubic hairs were on the shower wall right next to the dirty grout between the tiles. Oh don't let me 4get, when I walked in the rooms, they even have a musty old smell to go right along with the 80's room décor. This was the worst Hyatt experience I’ve had. In fact, it’s the worst so called upscale experience I’ve had in my travels and I never stay in hotels below a 4 star rating on a 5 star scale. In all fairness, the positives were the river front view, the lobby area is nice & the breakfast buffet was great, but this wasn’t enough to sway my thinking from the inexcusable conditions of this hotel. I could have gone to a cheap pimped out [--] and saved money if I wanted this type of experience. Gosh, never ever again will I visit this Hyatt. Glad as hell my stay is done!

My husband and I wanted a quick weekend getaway. When we arrived, the staff was so friendly. We were greeted promptly with a smile. All questions were answered without hesitation. We had an executive suite which was fairly large. The riverfront view was amazing, especially at night. The bathroom was large. The restaurants in the hotel were pretty good, but a little pricey. The hotel is very quiet, which we both needed. I would stay at this hotel again.

Recently returned from a business trip to Jacksonville, FL. Stayed at the Hyatt in a riverview room (1106). Very nice business type hotel. Seamless check-in (room was ready at 9:30 AM). Very clean room with two queen beds, tidy bathroom, plenty of space. Staff was courteous and helpful. Two laptops in the lobby (beside the elevators) that allow you to print your boarding pass at no charge. Didn't try the restaurants in the hotel, but there is plenty to see and do within walking distance (Jacksonville Landing and water taxi to other side of St. John's river). Conference facilities were excellent and well appointed. If you are traveling on business, I can easily recommend this clean, quiet hotel.
