TravelPod Member ReviewsHyatt Regency Miami
My wife and I decided to treat ourselves on our honeymoon by taking an excursion to Miami and I surprised her when we pulled up to the Hyatt. I would never say that the Hyatt is not elegant because it certainly IS. I'd only say that they are a bunch of money-grubbing little weasels. The price tag is already high. But the room is quite lovely in every way. We had a great view and lots of personal space. But the pool was really dirty and pretty small. Internet was an extra expensive charge which we didn't pay. It also costs $40 to park your car there overnight. WE DIDN'T EVEN USE A VALET AND IT STILL COSTS THAT MUCH. The hotel staff were very haughty and rather unhelpful. I've stayed in quite a few hostels and pensions for a few dollars which were generally more enjoyable than my stay at the Hyatt Regency. But rich people suck. So, I shouldn't be surprised.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Miami
I stayed in the Hyatt Regency a few weeks ago for a conference and I was slightly disappointed. It is usually full of people waiting for cruise liners and the lobby is regularly crowded. The rooms are fine and the service is very good. However the location is not ideal. If you have a room facing the river the traffic is quite noisy as it hits the bridge. The facilities are also quite poor. The bar is the biggest disappointment. It is brightly lit and open plan. When I was there it was also out of draught beer. Also if you don't have a car the local sights are limited. A great help would be if the hotel provided a shuttle bus to the Bayside shopping and entertainment complex or even a ride to south beach. There is a good bar round the corner - Tobacco Road that has good food and music. All in all its ok for Downtown but without a car stay at the beach.
Not performing at all
If you need to stay in downtown OK, but otherwise stay at Miami Beach instead. The location is not nice and you are away from most leisure activities.Checkin was smooth but then the problems started. When I got my room it was not what I booked: Non-smoking, King bed Regency club room. Instead it was a standard room, double bed smoking room. When I called the front desk they told me all RC rooms were sold out. So they simply downgraded me without offering me any reduction or other compensation. After spending ten minutes on the phone I eventually got the manager online and he told me I could get a RC room the next day.The new room did not live up to what their web page says. Cordless phone was not working, no fax machine in the room. Also there was a massive noice from the elevators 24 hours a day.Hyatt Miami just completed a $8m renovation but I found the rooms clean ut boring. You really couldnīt think they renovated the rooms at all. The balcony is small and scary.One nice thing is the wireless Internet connection in the rooms at $10/24h although the signal quality was poor sometimes in my room. Also the work desk is far to high to have a laptop on it. It is really not designed for the business traveller.Over all a disappointing experience. I will not return.
we used priceline and got this hotel for our precruise stay
well for 45 bucks it was the most awesome hotel I ever stayed in
come to think of it i don't know if i have ever stayed at a nicer hotel
when we checked in the people were very nice and accomodating and the concierge answered our questions about where to go and what to do
our room was very nice and very big
we loved it
they have a separate dressing area with a big walk in closet to stash your bags so you are not tripping over them
we took a walk along the river walk and this was nice but kind of busy
the pool area was very nice with alot of lounge chairs
bayside was only a 10 minute walk
they area seemed safe to walk in
would definitely like to stay here again
Very Pleasant Experience
I've had the pleasure of staying at the Hyatt twice, the last time being in Feb 04. The rooms that I have had on both occasions were very nicely decorated, with a separate area that inlcudes a walk in closet and dressing room outside of bathroom. The balcony view was nice-it faced Biscayne Bay, and while it was small, I did not feel uncomfortable. The hotel has a nice pool area. (Just wish they had a cocktail waitress out there!) The workout facility was a little small, but I never had a problem getting on one of the two treadmills. The hotel is connected to the free monorail system that runs around downtown and I used it to go to Bayside on several occasions. The conceirge was helpful making my Super Shuttle arrangements back to the airport and suggesting dinner places nearby when I didn't want to eat in the hotel's restaurants. I would definitely stay here again.
Stayed at the Hyatt this past weekend and it was nice. There was a pool with towel service. The staff was friendly and I had no problems. The thing I hated the most was paying for parking, which was $20 for valet and $12 for self-park overnight. If you use self-park, the rates start over if you leave or if you stay for more than 24 hours in the lot.
Also, the restaurant Japengo in the hotel was a good meal. Service was good and seating was prompt at the restaurant.
Hated the Miami Hyatt Regency
Stayed at the Hyatt Regency both pre-cruise and post-cruise, and I will never stay there again. The staff, with the exception of the folks working at the Bell Desk, was incredibly unfriendly. You couldn't pay them to smile and the rooms were very run down. On our post-stay, there was a band playing on the deck of the Bank of America building, which we could clearly see, AND HEAR, from our room. I called the front desk to find out when I could expect the music to stop, and they were incredibly defensive with a "it's not our fault" attitude. They said that the ordinance states the band is supposed to stop at 11:00, but they couldn't do anything if they went on longer. They played until 1:00. They did not tell us when they gave us those rooms that this would be an issue. I don't recommend this hotel to anyone, and I would encourage the cruise lines to not endorse them -- they behaved as though they were annoyed by our business.
Loved the Hyatt Miami
I stayed at the Hyatt Miami in Aug. 2003 and we had a wonderful experience. I was there with a group of friends for the weekend before we left for a cruise. The staff was wonderful and very accommodating. I think this hotel is better than the Hyatt Coral Gables. The only bad experience was dinner in the hotel restaurant. The service was terrible! Whenever in Miami I'm staying here again.
Stayed in this hotel for business. The lobby seems outdated and smells of cigarrette smoke. The rooms are spacious but boring. We had a "suite" but there was nothing in the room, a lot of open space. It was weird. the balconies are scary! They are very very small and you feel like you are right on the road below...stay somewhere else....
Great Place, Good Staff
After leaving the Hotel accross the street, this hotel had rooms avaliable and welcomed us! It was the answer! If anybody goes there please thank them for me!
This was a great hotel. Staff was very courteous compared to a previous stay in South Beach where everyone was equally rude. Room was nice, different design, lots of lighting. (Room was too high, 22nd floor), there was a balcony for those not afraid of heights (unlike myself). Restaurant downstairs had excellent food with lots of variety. Would definitely stay again, lots of amenities and excellent quality for the money.

... So, off on our travels again tomorrow. Back to Orlando. It's going to be a different stay as we will have minimal theme park visits, Maybe one day in Epcot to do the things we didn't quite manage before and maybe one day in a water park. It's going to be even busier than when we were there with the girls so that isn't very enticing. We will keep our tickets for better times. Tomorrow is Independence Day so we will try and find some fireworks to view. ...
... would be delayed to allow for extra cleaning. Indeed, all leaves had been cancelled for the crew and every nook and cranny was being cleaned and disinfected. Every book had been removed from the library and from the staterooms for steam cleaning. You couldn't go anywhere without a crew member asking you to sanitize your hands and hand shaking was strongly discouraged.
In the buffet, no one was allowed to serve himself or herself. You ...
Since today was spent traveling I'm afraid we have no pictures to share with you. Which is unlucky for you all as i believe today I looked better than i have on the whole trip.
Arrived in Miami around 6pm and hopped on the hotel shuttle to check out if our car was still parked there. Yes it was, phew. Checked to make sure she started up then booked a cheap and cheerful hotel around an hour south of Miami in Florida City.
Tomorrow we hit the keys.
The ranger who was taking money was a nice guy, but a talker. He took one look at us and wanted to know if Dan had a Senior Pass to the parks. We had no idea what he was talking about, so he started into a speech about how people over age 62 were entitled to a pass that provided free entrance to most national parks. All you had to do was sign up and the pass was ready. So Dan filled in the blanks and signed on the dotted lines and ...
... hop music in the cab so he can hear what we’re saying. We are surprised when we actually get to the right hotel, Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel ($177 per night including tax). Not surprisingly, he doesn't get a tip.
The hotel is OK, with some water views of a canal and large yacht. We don't want room service, so ask at the desk where we might get a feed, and how safe it is. We walk a fair distance up the main street, but everything is closed, ...
