... multi-level seating in bigger areas. There were many people enjoying their lunch on a bench with their co-workers and why not?! With weather this perfect who wouldn't want to be outside in such a picturesque setting! With every twist of the path and every new view I would snap a picture thinking that this had to be the prettiest part, until I got to the next area and then that was the prettiest part, until I got to the next area - you see the pattern ...
... a feel good show about a Northern England shoe making factory, and is a hilarious, sequinned spectacle of which I have never seen anything similar! After the show, I walked to Central Park bike rentals, just a couple of blocks from Central Park, where I hired a bike on my NY pass. I cycled round Central Park for an hour, stopping by Harlem Meer for 5 minutes to watch the people on the lake there and take a couple of photographs. By 7, it was time ...
... the financial district did you know one million people come to work on this one street every day and make around a billion dollars a day with trading worldwide!! Our second to last stop was a Hudson River cruise out to see Lady Liberty. We headed out along the river and looked back on the skyline of Manhattan our guide was awesome he pointed out all the land marks and Leonardo Dicapros house which is outside the port where the Titantic was suppose to arrive in New York. We ...
... 30 we knew we should aim for the 7pm bus as the next one wasn't until 8pm, and that's just ridiculous :) Thanks to some seriously long lines for the checkout we found ourselves running for the bus depot, and while we made it just in time, the line was huge...and we were at the back. We made it onto the second bus, and attempted to keep our children quiet while the other passages dozed. I made a vow when I was quite young to never, ever enter ...
... comedy club tonight which we are told is the thing to do in New York so hopefully we will get there without turning into iceblocks. We went to dinner last night at a local bistro. The food was quite good but the prices were just as bad as you would pay in Perth. They have forecast rain for the next few days so tomorrow we will spend time in the Metropolitan Art gallery and the Museum of Natural ...

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!
