Historical Traveller Reviews of Hyatt Regency Long Beach Hotel

Great Location for Everything!

from A TripAdvisor Member
This is a great hotel! I read the reviews on here before booking and gave it a shot, and this really is a great spot! A great view of the bay, beach, and even the cruise ship we were going to take off on next to the Queen Mary. Hotel restaurant is not fancy but nice and casual, not intimidating. On our second night we went across the street to the pike shopping area and saw a movie and ate. A lot of things to do. Next trip well make sure to go to the aquarium we just didnt have enough time. Rooms are nice simple and clean. Staff friendly. Giant lobby!

Very Disappointed

from A TripAdvisor Member
We arrived on Christmas Eve hoping to be able to enjoy the ammenities of the motel. Were we ever in for a surprise. The Starbucks coffee bar was closed and we don't drink so there was nowhere for us to go but to our room. There we saw a bottle of distilled water but with a price tag attatched. We wanted to use the internet and there was cost for that as well. Breakfast prices were ridiculous. Later in the week we stayed a modest motel which provided free breakfast, free internet and other amenities. For the price we paid I must say I was very disappointed.

Good value, good location

from collegemom998
Stayed two nights last month with my husband and two teenage children. Paid extra for the Regency Club room and access to their lounge and felt it was worth the additional fee. Don't be shy to negotiate; we received services for the four of us for the price of two. They were slow and were happy to accomodate. It was nice knowing that a hot cup of coffee or a cold beverage was just a few doors away. We usually stay at Marriott properties, but this might sway us in the future. Staff was pleasant, but a bit confused when they programmed our room keys and garage access keys and mixed them up. There didn't seem to be any conventions going on and the downtown streets seems empty except for locals that looked a bit intimidating. We ate dinner at the restaurant in the hotel one night and the food was pretty good. The aquarium was mobbed and geared towards children ten and under. Would return to the hotel if needed to stay in Long Beach, but the Hyatt in Hunington Beach seems more like a resort destination.

Typical Hyatt Experience

from TxnAquarian
I chose to stay at the Hyatt Regency Long Beach due to its proximity to the port of San Pedro where I was leaving out of on a cruise. The drive through Long Beach is frightening. The main city is low-income and it looked like a shooting would break out at any moment. However, once we made it through that potential warzone, and arrived at the harbor area, it was lovely. The Hyatt is located right across from the Queen Mary and the entire area is full of new condos and shopping areas.

Due to the fact that this Hyatt recently underwent a major renovation, I was expecting to be impressed - but I wasn't. Sure the rooms are pretty, contemporary and have upgraded bedding that I could have stayed in for days. But my bathroom looked like something that was left over from the 1980's. There was grout between the tiles on the floor and the area behind the toilet was not clean. I laid out several towels on that floor so that my bare feet would not touch it. The lobby area and grounds are nice, well-kept and idyllic, however. And I must emphasize that the rooms themselves are very nice, decorated in soothing colors of sea green and blues.

What was a surprise was how good the hotel's restaurant, Tides, was. The food at dinner was outstanding, as was the breakfast. It was much improved over what you would expect to find at a typical chain hotel. The servers were more than accomodating as well. This was a great experience!

My main gripe, working in guest services for a hotel myself, were the staff at check-in. I was checked-in by a gentleman who barely looked at me, let alone spoke to me. He just took my credit card and handed me keys. I asked him where shopping areas were in Long Beach and it was like pulling teeth trying to get information out of him. The rest of the Front Desk staff were not much better. The management here needs to realize that these employees are the guest's first impression of the hotel. I must say, however, that the bellmen here were great! They really went out of their way to assist us.

Overall, this was an okay hotel. Just not as fantastic as I would expect a newly renovated Hyatt. But it served its purpose for one night.

Loved It!

from A TripAdvisor Member
Stayed at this hotel for a business conference for a couple nights. I thought it was a very nice hotel. The rooms were nice and the beds were very comfortable. Good location next to an aquarium. Had a good view of the aquarium and bay. There is a lot to see in this area and there is a great free bus that takes you to lots of shopping. I will definately come back to this hotel for a quick vacation.

Just what I was looking for

from Janetdrew
I just read the reviews to see if I could add something different. I'm wondering why people had such different experiences. Mine was a good one. I was traveling alone this time so I had more contact with staff. From the time I got there till the time I left people could not have been more helpful. I had just left the Hyatt in Westlake and they had called ahead for me so check in was a snap. My luggage almost beat me to my room. Maybe I was just glad to get off the freeway. Or I had just heard there was no reason at all to get in my car for two days. It was all shuttle or walk. Or maybe it was the drink I had just sent for, cause I was happy. I loved my bed. my shower, my view, my little notebook hook up. There is one thing that stood out. Next morning I called for room service. This is maybe day five trying to get a low carbo breakfast. Every place I stayed I was told, Yes we understand no bread no potatoes just real butter. Yea right..But guess what. maybe it was the grilled vegtables, cause I was happy. Thank you Estraila.

Not Impressive

from JaniceMPA
Just spent a week there for a convention. The proximity to the convention center is about the only thing the hotel has going for it. The room was fair but the lighting was horrible. Housekeeping did nothing but throw the comfortor back on the bed. I don't think they even rinsed out the bathtub. Room service trays and dirty laundry laid in the hallways for hours. TV kept jumping back to the hotel station. If you want to use wi-fi...forget it. The hotel advertises it but it does not work. $6 to have a small box delivered to my room. Food and meeting rooms were fair.

Close to Convention Center

from A TripAdvisor Member
In town for a convention and the Hyatt was a good headquarters. Staff was all very helpful, meals fine, and service fine. Close to lots of different restaurants but apparently you need to be careful if out alone at night. Room comfortable with great bed and linens.

Love this place

from WaterlooGeek
Staff and services in the hotel were great.
Area around the hotel was great but after a few days there was nothing else to see or do. Unless you like wandering around restaurants and tourist shops.
Rooms were always in great shape after cleaning so staff are well trained
Over all this is great value for Long Beach area.

Very nice stay at the Hyatt...

from alturner007
I recently stayed two nights at the Hyatt in downtown Long Beach, CA. My stay was wonderful. The staff was very nice. I had a lovely view of the bay. On this trip, I had access to the The Regency Club, which I would highly recommend. The Regency breakfast and appetizers were delicious and provided me a place to relax on my business trip. The Hyatt has the best location in downtown. It is next the convention center and in the middle of the Pike area (plenty of great restaurants, shopping, even a movie theater).

Top Local Tips for Long Beach

One trick town Long Beach has a fancy name that conjours up all sorts of visions but it really is a busy port at the end of the LA River and it's attractions will wane quicky so unless you have to go there for a conference (and the centre is great) I would choose some other spot for a base.

Catalina Island Do spend at least half a day out on Catalina Island. A lovely getaway from the LA/Long Beach rat race. Lots of people, all very relaxed, having a fun time, with no presumptious sorts found in other resort areas. Sit inside on the boat though....the wind and sun will gang up and give your face a roasting otherwise! With a half-day I had plenty of time to take the underwater sub fishspotting trip and enjoy a lovely lunch overlooking the harbour.

What to come to Long Beach for... Long Beach has obviously put a lot of money into revitalizing the downtown area and it has done a commendable job. At first blush, the quaint harbor lined with restaurants and shops is lovely. It is also fantastic that you can take a metro from the heart of Long Beach to downtown LA. My only complaint is that they have overdone it a little. The restuarants seem to cater not to people looking for a nice dinner out, but the happy hour crowd -- and you can't help wondering how these establishments can stay in business after 8:00 pm. Still, if all you're looking for is a multicolored margarita and a plate of wings -- this is the place for you!
