Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa & Marina
Travel Blogs from Cambridge
We headed south on the Chesapeake to Cambridge, MD...the Hyatt Resort. A beautiful resort with wonderful ammenities. We really enjoyed walking around the resort and the staff was wonderful. The town was a bit of a distance away...so we did not make our way there! We continued getting our thing in order on the boat. Dinner on board was delicious and we enjoyed a very relaxing evening!!
Our journey home begins uneventfully. We see the start of King's Day on our way to the airport that, too, has a festive air. The first leg of our flight, Amsterdam to London is short and smooth; the second part, from London to Philadelphia does not begin well. Heathrow requires that passengers changing planes (even on the same airline) go through security, and for some reason I am profiled. Both I and my hand luggage are patted, x-rayed and thoroughly searched.
... Amsterdam on the brand-new MS Inspire is not just about tulips, they are the reason we are going now, just as our own bulbs, very late this year after an unusually cold winter, are about to bloom. I will miss the daffodils, hyacinths and, of course, tulips in our garden, but this one Spring I will see them growing in Holland, something I have wanted to do for a very long time.
LIving Social: The Inn at St. M. Stayed March 14-16th. Two rooms: one with hot tub and one with balconey. We rode cruiser bikes one day and loved it! I knitted my blue sweater off the pier. The sun was wonderful. I accidentally tripped Jim while walking. Wine tasting. Jim's back is recovering well. Still pains and soreness. Gross continential ...
... by slaves and free people. You take a little road that drives along the canal but it is not marked.
From the canal it is an easy drive, or it should be, to the Bucktown Store. Our problem was that we didn’t read the maps, (yes maps) properly since GPS doesn’t work in those parts. So if you are going to do this I suggest you MapQuest first and have a good idea of your route or you will end up like we did; driving in circles for ...

Nice Undiscovered Golf Course
Took part in an offsite meeting at this Hyatt in late September and found the facility excellant especially the outside grounds with a giant fireplace and beautiful views of the Chesapeake Bay; however, the service at the Restaurant was slow. The golf course in my opinion was a much better value than Las Colinas in Dallas or Doral in Miami. A lot of the holes play around beautiful water views and although several bunkers were still under water from the Hurricane, it was still in good shape. I would definitely recommend this place as a good getaway locale for couples looking to relax and play golf.
Hyatt hits a homerun
We loved the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort. The atmosphere was casual, though the decor was quite elegant. We were given a smores kit and the large outdoor fireplace was lit at dusk. This was an outstanding early evening activity for families and adults who love chocolate and marshamallows. The pool was also outstanding, though it might benefit from a few more trees or umbrellas. The indoor pool was a treat as is was housed in a beautiful conservatory-type building. We didn't miss the ocean for a minute--the grounds were lovely. This is a place I would definitely return to--it's a great add-on to a trip to Washington DC.
Beautiful setting & hotel
This was a very nice new hotel. Beautiful surroundings lovely rooms. The dining menu needs a little improvement. We would go back for another get-a-way. The only other thing would be for the summer months, they need to have many more umbrella's for shade.
Hyatt big resort with little problems
Just got back from a long weekend there. The Golf course was beautiful and played fast and was in great shape. The Food at the hotel was good.
The Marina was our clear favorite. Very loud and casual , great for our kids. Breakfast on the michner terrace was a good value 15 buffet. ( included lox and bagel as well as frech toast eggs etc.) Now the problems. Service was sporadic at best in the hotel. Our friends order ice cream from room service at 9pm , it came to there door at 11pm.
Pools were very nice , but the resort is crowded with boaters, had to fight for chairs. Also not enough umbrellas made for a schorching day in the sun, unless you got them early. All taken by 6:30am. last thing bring bug spray by the tank, bad mosquito year. still asying all that had a good time and would say its a good long weekend place to visit.
Should be better
Property: very nice...great layout Rooms: a little above average. Food: average, service:below average Staff: helpful, but dim Will visit again at high season to see if they have their act together. It would be a shame if this resort continues to lag due to the staff.
Incredible Weekend Get-Away
Our stay at the Hyatt Cheasapeake was wonderful. The weekend package was very reasonable with Sunday huge brunch included. The decor, the pools, the grounds everything was beautiful. I loved the polished wood throughout the 2 story lobby. There were so many inviting places to sit and cuddle up on a cold winter day. The spa was flawless from reception to changing rooms to waiting rooms to personal service rooms. The service was excellent. I must admit that the rooms where not spectacular but more than adequate.
This place is great! It has some of the nicest facilites I have ever seen in a hotel. From the pool with the whirlpool that goes from indoors to outdoors, to the fireplaces near the lobby, to the rooms with the "extra things" like spa style shampoo and soaps, and the large fitness room. Obviously, since I was here while there was snow on the ground, I wasn't able to enjoy the golf, but I plan on coming back soon.
Very beautiful hotel on the river
I stayed there while on business in cambridge. It is one the most beautiful places i have seen, the riverfront is just great, rooms are large and spacious. wonderful spa, pool, and dinner was great
Spectacular, But - - -
Quite spectacular! However, not worth the $$$$, until they have all of their services on line. Had to eat/dine off site, as their restuarants cannot presently accomodate the 50% occupancy. Off site restuarants are not worth the $$$ or the driving aggrevation. Will consider returning next year.
A most spectacular place
I had the opportunity to visit the Hyatt Chesapeake Bay Resort and Spa just after it opened in Early September. I must say it is one of the most spectacular places with exceptionally low rates fro the amenities available, I have ever been to. The choice of activities seemed endless for my short stay, including championship golf, european spa, evening activities around a bonfire..I cannot wait until the marina has sailboats to take out for daysails! I got a special honor to meet the General Manager, Mike Walsh, who seemed to take a personal interest in my stay and truly made me feel at home. It turns out he was the General Manger for a Carribean Hyatt where he perfected the art of Customer Service. This is a 5 star Resort with an even more promising future.
