“Some minor issues, but a definite winner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

For UMW's Destination Days, my wife was excited to book us at this new Hyatt, placing us very close to the campus. We decided that we would extend our stay to visit Fredericksburg for a few days. You literally walk across Route 1 and you're on the campus - very nice! Our 1st worry was that our room was so close to the elevator - surprisingly, we had zero noise from the elevators make it into our room. Noise inside the room, however, was a different story. The sliding glass door to the bathroom is a nice touch, aesthetically, but if you are using the bathroom, there is no privacy within the room, noise-wise. Your business in there is everybody else's business as well. We had issues getting into our room on day 2 - it seems the cards/lock had been reset - a quick 5-minute trip to the front desk, although a bit frustrating to have to do it, took care of the problem. WIFI - plus and minus here - it still took a phone call to the front desk to get the Wifi Password, but once we had it, it worked like a charm. Last negative - parking - there doesn't seem to be a designated lot. There is a lot out back, but it's relatively small, and further than anywhere else. Across the street, by the empty shops (for sale/lease) is also used, but once the shops are leased, that might be a problem. Lastly, out front, in the shopping center parking lot - spotting a side door to the hotel, this became our favorite place to park. Other good stuff - the 42" swiveling TV with Directv can be seen anywhere in the room, and made for relaxing evenings. The proximity to restaurants left us always with food options w/o driving anywhere - relaxing after a day of driving. Last, but certainly not least, the breakfast... The selection of food (the breakfast sandwiches were fantastic!!), the freshness of food, and the fact that, until breakfast is over (and not 1/2 hour earlier, like some places), they continue to bring out food. Did you sleep until 15 minutes before breakfast is over - no problem!! There will be fresh food, and smiling faces bringing it out!! Bad, yes, but plenty more good, so we'll be back!! Heading up for orientation in June, and that's where we'll be staying!!

My family was spent after driving for 14 hours and it was late... (8:00pm). We stumbled upon the Hyatt Place Fredericksburg and we lucked out. STAFF: The staff at the desk listened to us and seemed genuinely interested in helping us. There were just a few rooms left and they even were able to accommodate my request for a second room on the same floor. HOTEL: The hotel is just months old and feels squeaky new. We stayed over night and left at 5am the next morning. PRICE: Amazing value! I wish I could have stayed longer! ROOM: Comfy bed. Small empty fridge to keep your food cold. LOCATION: in the same plaza.... frozen yogurt place, a wine & liquor store, quizno's and a grocery store. We were there too late to go to most places, but we were able to stock up on snacks and replenish for the next day at the grocery store. The only "negative" was that continental breakfast started at 7am...we were leaving at 5am. One of the best hotels I've stayed and by far the friendliest staff.

Room Tip: There are different styles and set ups. Don't be afraid to ask the differences and their recomme...

Green Features: Every where I looked in the room there were conscientious notes about having a low impact on the environment and caring for children. Water use, light use, towels, even the toiletries were a part of their efforts.

We stayed at the Hyatt Place Fredericksburg to attend a sporting event at UMW. The hotel is brand new with great amenities. We had a king suite at a very affordable rate. It had good wi-fi service, a very nice TV, comfortable bed, large shower. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was very good, with a wide selection beyond the usual hotel fare. For example, the hotel prepared waffles that were served with banana compote. The location is really convenient, directly across from campus. We'll definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: While the hotel is on Route 1, it's far enough off the road that you don't get any noise.

Checked in last night and will leave tomorrow. Very contemporary user friendly open public spaces, and spacious room designed with today's traveler in mind. Free wi-fi, desk, charging space, flat screen TV, contemporary sofa, nice lighting, extra comfy beds with real pillows instead of foam slabs for your head. Buffet breakfast included is a level above other chains that have a breakfast buffet. Fresh fruit and hot breakfast sandwiches, along with other standards displayed in a upscale coffee house environment. Lots of nice extras like nuts and fruit for your oatmeal or yogurt. Sally greated us this morning and last night, and was very helpful and accommodating. No restaurant or room service, but 24 hour food and drinks available in the contemporary lobby similar to what you might expect at Starbucks, but also hot items and alcohol, which you can eat in the lobby or take to your room. Very good prices for the quality.

Room Tip: This hotel sits back from the main highway, so I think all of the rooms should be reasonably quiet.

My family stayed here and we were so impressed, the Hotel was clean and comfortable. We have never stayed in a hotel where the staff was as welcoming and attentive as this! We were there on a very busy weekend. Three college basketball teams, families in town for a soccer tournament, and a musical group all staying at the Hyatt and we seriously felt like the only ones! The staff handled everything with such ease. Particularly impressed with breakfast. Feeding basketball and soccer teams is no easy feat but the food kept coming! James and Megan were great at the front desk, Devon was a great help, and Sally took time out during the breakfast rush to check on my son and I. Everybody on staff that weekend should be recognized for their hard work and great service! This family will be back!

The beds/pillows are very soft and comfortable. It was just what I needed after a long car ride down to see a game at Mary Washington the following day. Would definitely go back. In addition, the whole safe was very pleasant & helpful. It is a very new and clean hotel.

We checked out this morning. The entire place smelled of a strong perfumed air freshener, so much so it bothered my sinuses. The place was well kept and very clean, staff is friendly, but the you can hear the people across the hall talking in their room and every time a door on your floor open or closes you will know it. Not recommended for sensitive sinuses or light sleepers.
