Hyatt Regency Greenwich
Travel Blogs from Old Greenwich
Hi everybody, Arrived at Pennsylvania Station by yellow cab this morning nice & early for our trip to DC. We waited at the big sign for the track number to come up, which it does about 10 mins before it leaves the station so you have to be ready to move when it does. The train goes via Newark New Jersey, Trenton, & Baltimore Maryland on its way to W. the train more closely resembles Ozzie ones than the Shinkansen of Japan! ...
... we were checked in and sent us up another corridor. Here another woman asked if we had completed our customs declaration - which I had been going to do on the plane, and said she couldn't let us through until we had. Sigh...... Completed customs declaration, still had bags, allowed into the next queue, which we found out was a queue to enter USA, fingerprinted (again), photographed (again), and the finally let through to bag drop. Then another queue for ...
One week in NY already and we feel like we have been here for so much longer. After a Sunday Morning sleep in we decided to take it easy today and just go see a movie and take it easy. Well it did start like that but then we for carried away with shopping again. We decided to go to Columbus Circle area to find a cinema which we did, and we saw "Man of Steel" (the new Superman movie). By the time it finished it was ...
... security around. Spotted the New York Stock Exchange. A few photos and then it was off to Bowling Green Park to catch the charging bull. Sightseeing done, a quick bite to eat, a roll and chicken rice soup...mm very tasty. Time for some clothes, Century 21 was the target. Some good bargains, then back on the subway home. At around 5:30pm, we headed downstairs for the free drinks and canapés. As it turns out, nothing is ever "free" in this city. You feel compelled to ...
... around the city. All streets run east to west and all avenues run from north to south. The subway is all colour coded and if the get really stuck you just stand at the side of the road with your arm in the air until a taxi stops.
We're glad we've visited NY and enjoyed our time here but I think it'll be the only visit we make. We're not really city folk... hehe.
Onto San Francisco.
How has this hotel rated in the past?
This is one of the most romantic places for drinks/dinner in the Fairfield County in CT. I have a full review here: http://bit.ly/h6O9IN

Needs an update
We stayed ayt the Greenwich Hyatt Regency, and were disappointed. The hotel is in a good location, and one of the few big hotels in the city, which should make them strive to lead the pack. However, the service is mediocre, the hotel is run down, and there is nothing that would make me return to this location. The have a Regency Club level, which is a total waste of money. You get the same room as everyone else (share the same floor), but get access to a small club room with cold cuts, some soda, glass of cheap wine, and the proverbial meatballs. Save the $50 and go to the Whole Foods Market nearby where you could get a feast for the same amount.
We went to a chinese restaurant nearby , Hunan Gourmet, that was great.
I got married in Greenwich over Memorial Day Weekend and used the Hyatt as our home base for out of town guests including my parents. I stayed in a room myself the night before the wedding and thought the hotel itself was beautiful and welcoming. The lobby is a large atrium with restaurant and separate bar, there is a little brook running through it with walkways and greenery for people to enjoy.
Gorgeous and romantic!
This hotel is simply beautiful. The room was large and the bed was extremely comfortable. Everything was clean and new. The service was wonderful and the food at the restaraunt was excellent. We had an amazingly romantic weekend and will definitely return!!
My fiance and I stayed at the hotel after we got engaged. I fell in love with it the moment I walked in thru the front door. It was amazing. The Atrium is stunning, and the rooms are beautiful, clean, and comfortable. We only stayed one night to celebrate our engagement, but the next morning upon check-out, I decided that I loved the hotel so much, that we are going to have our wedding reception there. (Planning the reception with their staff was very fun and easy to do. The staff is wonderful.)
Nice but not great
We just stayed at the Hyatt in Greenwich over Valentine's Day weekend. The common areas like the lobby are absolutely amazing. The rooms are large and comfortable. The biggest drawback was that we could hear every sound made in the hallway. Also, the front desk only had a couple of employees and took way too long. Still, a very nice hotel.
Nice hotel, suburban location
Like many of the suburban Hyatts, this is a nice hotel. The hotel is centered around an enormous & lovely atrium where the hotel restaurant, bar & other walking areas exist in an open-air fashion. It's a nice look. Rooms are nice, clean & comfortable. The gazebo-like bar is very nice, with plenty of seating available and a great selection of single-malts & other drinks. The restaurant, however, is really overpriced with entrees ranging between $24-33. The hotel's location is strictly suburban and is at least a 10 minute drive to the "downtown" area of Greenwich -- which is where the clever & interesting restaurants & stores are. So, if you stay here, have a car, or be willing to hop a cab (or the hotel van) to hitch for a meal elsewhere.
Brief but Pleasant Stay
My wife and I arrived on the 9th of October 2004 and stayed only two nights. Old Greenwich is a sleepy town with little to do but this was the itinerary we had in mind. The presentation of this Hyatt is very attractive. As soon as you step into the hotel you see a botanical garden in the middle with a gazebo and restaurant. The staff was extremely courteous from the moment we checked in to the moment we checked out. The rooms were comfortable and presented itself in a traditional setting. Parking is a little bite of an inconvenience, our room was located at end of the hotel and self-parking was at the other (Valet is an option).
Overall this hotel is a pleasant and relaxing stay and I would stay there again.
My family just stayed at Greenwich's Hyatt Regency and all I can say is that it was amazing. The accomdations were simply suberb; the rooms clean and well appropriated, the pool delightful, the staff friendly and helpful, the lobby breathtaking. I'm ready to go back!
I highly recommend this hotel! It's absolutely beautiful and the service is fantastic. Don't listen to anyone that says otherwise. This is a top-notch hotel.
Left 20 mins after check-in
Old rooms, worn-out carpets, and your grandmother's furniture - if this is your idea of heaven then this is your hotel. Do yourself a favor and stay at the Delamar hotel instead!
This hotel is in desparate need of a face-lift and does not do justice to the Hyatt (Park Hyatt that is) name.
Hyatt Management - it's time to RENOVATE and bring this hotel into this century! Please!
