Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Greenwich Old Greenwich
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.
The rooms are large and the beds extremely comfortable. I was not able to hear those in adjoining rooms but did hear some noise in the hallway. That cant be helped though. The bathroom was extremely clean and the shower was nice and warm with good water pressure.
All of the guests commented on how great the hotel was. The price was great too, only 140 per night. It is a large place that can accommodate all kinds of parties. I didnt get married there but I think there were two weddings there that day.
My only complaint would be that the salon there tends to run very late (my experience for my trial run and wedding day) and so if you are planning to use it for your wedding, you should make an appointment a little earlier than you think you should. I really liked the job they did but I needed to leave the hotel at 1:45 and my appointment was for 11:30 but didnt get started until after 12:00 and so was rushed to get ready. This is not something that the hotel can help though but I thought I would mention it if people are looking at this site for planning purposes.
All of our guests had a great time and no complaints about this hotel. I picked it without seeing it, I just knew it was a large place. It was either here or the marriot in stamford and I am so glad I chose the Hyatt, it is more modern and beautiful than the marriot.
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!!
I'm returning for the most important day of my life!
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.)
The food is a bit pricey, but it's Greenwich, everthing is pricey. The only important fact that you should know, is that the hotel is far away from Greenwich Avenue (where all the shops and restaurants are). So if you're planning to enjoy Greenwich shopping, I suggest you have a car. If you're looking to escape away for the night with that special someone, or need to stay in Greenwich for business, or just need a place to pull off of I-95 for a good nights rest, then this is the hotel you should choose.
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!

... On our way back to the hotel, after our shopping experience, we once agin got caught in the rein but this time we had to get back to our hotel. We returned and were soaking wet so much that the receptionist behind our hotel desk provided us with towels before we walked up to our room. After my meeting wi the Contiki group we headed towards Greenwich and The Chelsea area for dinner and we could not leave New York ...
... out for a good time - restaurants and bars full, theatre foyers full of people. A good vibe. Phantom was excellent. A huge theatre - The Majestic and the staging, costuming and music was really good. We thoroughly enjoyed it. Afterwards we crossed the street and went to 'Johns', the Zagat guide's best pizza place in New York. We got a table right in the window where we could watch all of the theatre goers crowd out into the streets. The Times Square spectacle ...
... researched thoroughly and with the assistance of google maps navigated our way to the Magnolia Bakery - the best Banana pudding in the world said Trip Advisor. I hoped it would be enough the soothe the savage beast. I really hoped.
We found the bakery easily enough. Donna ventured in while I finished my coffee frappe. It was milky delicious. I did my best not to make a point of it and found a park an a bench and waited.
So it was that ...
... thing our Brooklyn tour guide warned us about when shopping in NY. To divert her attention I took her into FAO Schwartz toy department store. I was here 29 years ago on business trying to sell them the best board game ever made. Obviously they didn't buy it. It was in here I managed to get Sioux a NY pen and it's genuine. I'm so smooth that I even impress myself sometimes. We had our last dinner in NY at Applejacks where the staff from the breakfast and dinner shifts all know our name ...
We're on the move again now, heading south to some winter sunshine. We've been promised 15 degrees tomorrow. We're currently around 60 miles south of New York, almost on a latitude with Philadelphia.
We have two sea days coming up, with arrival into Fort Lauderdale anticipated for 7am on Thursday, 900 miles from here.
Nine days into this cruise already, which just leaves 20 days and 6257 miles left to ...
