Heavily Used Convention Hotel A review of Hyatt Regency Tampa
I didn't have any specific problems at the Hyatt Regency, but certainly wasn't impressed. From my first impression - a small smelly lobby dominated by the bar, to checkout where it took almost five minutes to find me in the system to print out my bill, everything was below average. As another reviewer mentioned, the elevators are slow. Sometimes they don't move, and other times they go up a few floors only to return to the lobby.
The actual room was fine, but old and in need of renovation. The bedspreads were stained in a few places and the bedframe creaked when I sat down. The carpet felt grimy and damp and I didn't dare walk around in bare feet. The bathroom was the oldest part of the room - cracked tiles in a few places, peeling caulk in the shower and hard water stains around the showerhead.
This hotel doesn't seem to be up to the regular Hyatt standard. It is desperately in need of a room renovation. The location is fine, but given the other opportunities in downtown Tampa, I would not stay here again.
