My three kids and I got here around 8pm and found our room comfortable and dinner in the restaurant satisfying. The beds were a little small for sharing, though.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Valencia
Small and charming
I ended up staying at the hyatt valencia because I didnt want to stay too close to LA. Its about a 35 minute drive if traffic is moving. I thought this would be a small quiet area but it really wasnt. Its a fast growing area and very busy but also beautiful and well taken care of. The hotel is nice. The outdoor areas are wonderful. Flowers and plants and extremely clean. Our room was ok. The bathroom door didnt close and the rooms are showing some signs of wear although its better than about 90% of other hotels I have stayed at. Housekeeping was fare. They only clean the things you see but thats normal I guess. I paid $87 a night thru hotwire and consider that a great deal. The hotel website wanted $139 a night and I would be ok with that but not any more. Oh but wait, parking is FREE so that saves $$ over most LA area hotels. I would stay here again. Its really a nice area and the hotel is nice by LA 3 star standards.
A Hidden Gem
The Hyatt in Valencia hosted my wedding on 3/12/05. Ironically the SBC Classic also made its home at the Hyatt (My wife and I have SBC, Pacific Bell roots). Why we ended up in Valencia? To make a long story short, we were supposed to get married at Caesars in Las Vegas. By the time we cancelled Vegas and were looking back home in the LA area, places were either booked or way over budget. From the moment we met with Kelly (catering manager), we felt very comfortable with the Hyatt. They ensured everything was ready and prepared as requested. The grounds are beautiful. It is a Hyatt but because it's small, we don't feel lost in the hotel. The staff and the accommodations are superb. We were given a complimentary suite for our wedding night which was large but cozy. Maybe they were extra nice and hospitable because of our wedding, we had family and friends who stayed the night as well and were very pleased with the Hyatt. Even with the SBC Classic golf tournament, a Bar Mitzvah and our wedding, the Hyatt was able to provide excellent service and ensured that all of our needs were taken care of.
There was an over-charge issue for one of our guests, which was supposed to receive a discounted rate. Kelly took care of it right away.
Had breakfast at Vines on Sunday and it was delicious!!
The Hyatt is the nicest hotel in Valencia and is adjacent to shops and dining, not to mention a quick drive to Magic Mountain.
Sean D at Hyatt Valencia
A beautiful hotel, with first-rate service. The grounds, including the fabulous rose garden, are incredible. The fitness center is well-equipped, pool and hot tub are located in the scenic courtyard, food and drink are superb, and check out time is a generous (and flexible) noon. In addition, the rates are only nominally higher than other hotels in the area, none of which compares to the Hyatt. I absolutely recommend staying here!
Nice hotel but.......
My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights. We were very happy with everything except for two minor details. The pillows were very uncomfortable and at the front door they have a push door with a pull handle. Very confusing so you MUST be alert when opening the door. We got it in the face a few times. Other than that, the hyatt was a great experience and an excellent hotel. I would stay there again ( with my own pillows of course!! )
A piece of paradise
I am pleased to say that I have just returned from a great stay at the Valenica Hyatt. The hotel itself was beautiful, well maintained, large rooms, and shops, restaurants, and movie theatre within walking distance.
The only disappointment was that we only got to spend one night there. We got a room on expedia for $139, it was well worth the money. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if I travel that way again.

Best place to stay in the area
We just returned from our stay at the Hyatt Valencia and I am happy to report that it exceeded my expectations. The staff was friendly and accomodating and the room was quite nice. We were surprised to find that our room had a large wrap around deck that overlooked a golf course and the swimming pool. It was a lovely place to unwind after a long day at Magic Mountain and I especially enjoyed reading the paper on the deck the next morning. The area is nice and we were able to walk to some nearby shops the next morning after brunch at the hotel restaurant. The brunch was pretty good--it compares to many of the higher end brunches here in Vegas, but without the crowds. The only reason I do not feel the highest rating is warranted was due to the mattress, which had seen better days and the supply of only two towels in the bathroom. Had our daughter accompanied us as originally planned (we'd reserved the room for 3), we would have had to call for more. Overall a good experience and it's a much nicer place than the other hotels in the area.
Nice location and comfortable room.
My husband and I stayed at the Hyatt during Memorial Weekend. Even though it was a busy week of vacationers, the hotel was nice and quiet. I was quite thankful we didn't hear any noisy tenants. Maybe it was because of good sound-proofing?
The bed was comfortable, but the pillows were just a little bit too hard and fat for us. The furnishings in the room were nice quality (a bit nicer than other Hyatts I've been to) and the people at the front desk were very courteous and helpful.
The jacuzzi could have been a little bit warmer, but at least it wasn't cold or lukewarm like other places we've stayed at. I tend to like the water at 104 degrees whereas this one was probably set at 102.
The hotel is conveniently located right across from a trendy mall, so shopping is real handy. There is even a Target located nearby as well as lots of restaurants (Olive Garden, Black Angus, etc... just to name a few). The hotel is also within about a mile from Magic Mountain/6 Flags (which we had a chance to visit).
All in all, my husband and I would recommend this place and would definitely stay here the next time we're in the area.
I stayed here prior to my relocation to Valencia. It is a very clean and comforable hotel. Comfy bed!
The nicest hotel in the area
I only stayed one night, but I liked what I saw of this hotel. It's right across the street from a large, prosperous mall, it has a decent looking bar restaurant, and a nice marble foyer. The room is like a hyatt anyhwhere else. Interestingly, while the bathroom had nice stonework throughout, the fixtures seemed very old and shabby.
Upgrades are available - $25 for a junior suite, $50 for a suite, but trying to grease a palm to get an upgrade for free won't work (or didn't work for me), so just go ahead and buy the upgrade - if you get a good rate online (I found mine on with travelocity) you can get the upgrade and pay less for a junior suite than the rack rate for a regular room.

... in the day and the heat was getting to our-already-burnt -selves we decided to wait for one more ride. Full Throttle is the worlds tallest looping coaster and it happens right at the beginning. The ride is not all as it seems but that’s all I’m going to say! Finally we headed back to the bus stop after the best day ever.
$52.99 for an online ticket plus $8.99 per transaction. Try to buy more in advance as it gets cheaper and do not buy on the door ...
... Rodeo Drive. It was as expected. The shops with their doors closed are not necessarily shut. It probably means that their stuff is so overpriced that you need an appointment to get in. BJ told us that some shops have a $1500 fee just to get in the door. Then we went for lunch at the Farmer's Market, same place as yesterday, although this time we stayed and ate. We ate barbecue. Stephen had chicken with coleslaw and mac n cheese. I had a ham sandwich ...
... We then rode the opposite way down to the skate park and a great little surf break.. However way to crowded for us to attempt a surf. Exploring through the streets and markets was an eye opening with "green doctor stores" that sell marijuana from the street , physic dogs, levitating creepy people and homeless by the hundreds . Finally it was time to check in and sleep ... We literally walked in the door of our room dropped everything and passed out as it was now about 8am ...
... in our airport clothes... oh well! We started to get tired really quickly so by 11am decided to head back to the hotel and wait by the pool for our room to be ready. This worked out well as it was only half an hour or so of waiting and we were told our room was ready to go so we could finally freshen up after a very long couple of days! We also gave our first tip when our bags were brought to our room, haha so awkward handing the guy two $1 bills, I had no idea what I was doing! Later ...
... are so much better than at home, much tighter and more daring! Up next, the most obscure ride at Six Flags for anwhere for that matter, The Green Lantern the first US spinning coaster on a vertical track!! The seats were so high I couldn't get up at all, I had no chance and the couple opposite us (comfortably in their seats were laughing hysterically at me) until Dad has to get out of his seat and give me a leg up!!!!). The ride is really hard to ...
