Historical Traveller Reviews of Hyatt Regency Miami Hotel
Definitely use Priceline!!from A TripAdvisor Member
That is our only complaint... However there is no way this hotel is worth $240 a night. We paid $50 on priceline and were so glad we did. There was a $25 ride from the airport, and $10 ride to the cruise port including tips.
The room was organized in an efficient manner, and we loved the balcony. Unfortunately we faced the aforementioned buzzing drawbridge as well as a building being torn down with a wrecking ball!
We had dinner at the sports bar and really enjoyed it.
That all said, we'd definitely stay there again for the $50/night.
s Hotel Only!from carter-elston
So, in summation, it was an o.k. hotel - only great for a meeting/conference (great meeting space) and not a 1st pick if you are looking to stay at a great vacation, get-a-way, family oriented, reasonably priced, or convenient hotel in Miami.
I must add that we stayed 2 nights and then relocated....Enough is enough!!
Nice but bring your earplugsfrom A TripAdvisor Member
First, we stayed on the river side of the hotel on the 18th floor, and all night long, whenever a bus or truck went over the toll bridge just below, it made an extremely loud crashing sound which would have kept me awake all night had it not been for my trusty earplugs.
Second, the handle on the shower was broken and my husband had to fix it with a bottle opener in order to change the water temperature.
Third, there was a safe in the room but no refrigerator (?).
Fourth, Parking--$20 a night for valet, with the only other alternative being the self-parking down the street for $18.50 a night. Ouch.
Fifth, the restaurant is expensive for what it serves. Glad we had dinner out. Breakfast was way high.
All those things being said,
The room was nicely appointed, no problems there.
The staff was very friendly and courteous, and the amenities were plush. I might stay here again if I were to be able to book the room for what I paid through Priceline ($70 before taxes, etc., which put it up to just under $100 a night) but would ask for a room away from the river, eat away from the hotel, and not rent a car.
reasonably priced Hyattfrom Wismergirl
The front desk staff was not as helpful as those in Eden Roc (where we stayed for 2 days before switching to Hyatt) & less friendly. When I asked for directions to go on the free Metromover (Miami’s downtown skyrail) to Bayside Market, they told us to get off 2 stops early so we had to walk under the unbearably hot sun for 10 minutes. I personally did not like Bayside Market as the merchandise was not as cheap as SOBE’s and the quality of food in the food court was only average. Basically, no one wanted to shop in the market stalls as there was no air-conditioning and even the air-conditioned food court was not cool enough. However, the air-conditioned Disney Store there had some excellent T-shirts for $5 and stuffed animals like a one-foot long Nemo was only $6.
In general, Hyatt was my pick just because of the cheap price & the "stay-for-2-&-1-night-free" offer. Otherwise, I usually prefer Marriott which is more convenient and has a more pleasant view of the Port of Miami.
Great Hotelfrom jaxlore
Not bad, but not a resortfrom becuzisaidso123
BEST HOTEL EVERfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Not as bad as others make it soundfrom A TripAdvisor Member
When me and my friend pulled up to check-in, the valet was only mildly helpful in letting us know what we needed to do to get things started. I overlooked this and proceeded to check in. The receptioninst (Allyn) was very nice and friendly. Because I called in before-hand to request a room high up with a balcony, I expected for things to be set. After making it to my room, I noticed we had a HUGE window for a wall (which was nice) but no balcony. Allyn worked with me until I had a room to my liking on the 24 floor (the top floor) that had TWO balconies! I was pleased.
My overall service experience there was slightly above average. Most employees were helpful, but not overly helpful. No problems there.
I can see where the place could use some renovations. Some of the buttons in the elevator didn't light up when pushed. Though we stayed on the 24th floor (which technically requires a card to access the floor) some of the elevators required the card to get to the floor, other elevators didn't. The feel of the hotel is something like you would typically find in the mid 90's. The pool is smaller than it looks on the website. The workout room could use an upgrade. Rooms could use mild renovations, though they were stylish. The grounds were clean and quiet overall though.
Location was convenient (right off the 95). If you are doing business downtown, the FREE tram that commutes around downtown is conveniently positioned so you don't have to go outside to get to it... though it seemed that only lower income people tended to use it the weekend I was there (but there were several police on and around these trams, in addition to video surveillence).
Overall, my experience was pleasant. For what I paid, it couldn't be beat. I don't know if I would have been as pleased if I stayed there for the advertised rates of $100+. I WOULD recommend it over the Sheraton Biscayne Bay which is right down the street (service is better).
*TIP: If you are looking for a room with a king-sized bed, get a room that ends in "_41" (ex. 641, 1041, etc.) These rooms are larger than average, all have 2 balconies and, consequently, two different views of the city. A much better view is to be had higher up. I would recommend a "bay" view. Rooms that end in "_38" all have no balconies and one wall of floor-to-ceiling window but are VERY spacious.
*Note: Parking is $20/day unless you park at a lot which is about a 5 minute walk away (costs around $5). We were going to park at one of these discounted lots but my friend saw a guy who looked homeless trying to open the door to a car which was parked in the lot. Downtown overall is a seedy place to stay. Be observant.
Tired hotel but convenient to pierfrom quilty
To their credit the staff was friendly and nice. Hotel tired, food average and choice of food well BELOW average. Come on Hyatt...we are used to better!

Top Local Tips for Miami
Metro Rail/Metro Mover Miami has a clean reliable public transportation system that is cheap and easy to access.
Water in rooms Dont drink the water in the rooms, they charge you $6 each one! meanwhile theres a gas station a block away that sells it for a $1! Oh and the Turkey Club Sandwich from room service is delish!
Taxi payments Most taxis in Miami do not seem to take credit cards for payments. Our driver explained it was because it cost over $2000.00 per cab to have the machine installed and was nice enough to drive us to a bank machine and give us a discount for having to go there enroute.
