Nice Place to Stayfrom SEGMN
Not up to Hyatt standardsfrom lsjaeger
Upon check-in, my original room preference requests were disregarded. I requested a "non-connecting" room, and when my key was handed to me, I remembered to ask, and found that I had been given a connecting room. Hotel occupancy that night was 11% so it was quite easy and quick to re-assign the room. Unfortunately, I did not confirm that my room was no-smoking because when I arrived at the room, it smelled like stale smoke and ashtrays were everywhere. Way too late after a long day of travel to go back downstairs to get yet another assigned room.
Although the carpet looked relatively new, the sitting chair fabric looked worn and was stained. No matter what I did with the heat/fan settings, heat was not meant to be for that room.
Yes, the bathroom was small and the shower had the new Westin-like curved shower rod that is supposed to keep the shower curtain away from you, however, these shower curtain liners are plastic, way too long, and run partly along the bottom of the tub. A used bandaid was on the floor under the counter in the sink area - yuch. And, the sink/counter area outside the bathroom was not fully enclosed and part of the bedroom - more like a motel.
The hotel advertises high-speed internet. It was wireless, and if you don't have a wireless card, requires that you go back downstairs to get an adaptor (might have been nice if they mentioned it upon check-in). I did go back down to get the adaptor which was a wasted trip as the connection was awful, kept dropping, and I finally used dial-up.
The bed was extremely comfortable, room service quick (11 % occupancy so it had better be), and room service food very good, food arrived as ordered, although the room service menu was fairly limited
For Business Travelersfrom GFKelly
Why? Maybe it was the $4 bottles of water available int he room. The other food and drink were similarly priced for those who are expensing their trip, not paying for it themselves.
The biggest sin that this hotel commits is the bed. The sheets are not fitted, so if you toss and turn even a little bit, you end up sleeping on a bare mattress. OK at the Motel 6, but not the Hyatt.
Great Hotel!from gbwafamily
Tired and Oldfrom southamericantourist
The first clue was the walkway from the parking lot to the lobby--lots of old dingy hallways, strange empty spaces, flickering flourescent lights, and worn carpets. The second clue was the lobby/reception desk, which had self check-in kiosks! i just left the airport, i don't want to feel like i'm back in one.
The room itself was pretty spacious and had a nice view of downtown. The bedsheets, however, were extremely rough and uncomfortable, and the bathroom old though clean. Overall, I would not expect this to be a 4-star property.
Renovations Overdue...from tlparks
Wouldn't call this a four star as billed, its 3 at best.
I really liked the Hyattfrom Claire55812
Shocking badfrom Dublinboy_9
Decent hotel - But not Greatfrom nycmode75
Overall the room was clean. I am not sure what other folks are saying about the rooms being dirty but in my case it was pretty clean, and when I visited other rooms (where my colleagues/friends were staying) it seemed to be all in pretty good condition.
The sink/closet area was especially clean and spacious. However, the bathroom was pretty small. The shower area is too close to the toilet and could have been much bigger, considering the room in general was pretty big. The bathroom could have been cleaner too, but it was in satisfactory condition.
The beds were quite comfortable and the sheets were fairly clean, though it was apparent that they didn't really change it much during my stay. At least it was clean the day I arrived.
The one problem I had with the room was that the climate control was crazy. It was either too cold or too hot, and even the non-smoking rooms smelled a bit like smoke. I think that's because the hotel is just old and even though the lobby was nice, the rooms were not as well kept over time as the main reception area. Even though I jacked the A/C temperature up - it still felt like a constant 65 degrees in the room, with a strong draft (despite me lowering the air to minimum). So basically I froze to death every night. When I turned the air off, the room got very stuffy and warm, so it was hard to find a good balance of air.
The one big plus of this hotel is definitely its vicinity to the downtown area. Nicolette Mall (where the hotel is) has a lot of shops and restaurants. But the restaturants in the hotel are the biggest pluses. Manny's Steakhouse is amazing (expensive though), and the Oceannairre Seafood joint is outstanding (also expensive - bring your corporate card!!). 2 great restaurants in the hotel, plus good room service food makes it a good dining hotel.
But keep in mind, the rooms are decent but not up to the standard of a Hyatt Regency. It reminded me more of a Doubletree-level hotel, hence in that respect it was a bit disappointing. And don't eat at that hibachi restaurant (Ichiban) across the street - the food is bad compared to the price you pay (and isn't very authentic).
Top Local Tips for Minneapolis
Jazz & Gourmet fare The Dakota is a jazz club and gourmet restaurant on Nicollett Mall. It absolutely delivers, in terms of top-notch service, terrific American-fusion cuisine and live jazz.
Lots to do Check out the comedy "Triple Espresso" while in Minneapolis, it's at a theater just down the street & very funny! The desk has easy directions to the Mall of America (either by the light rail or by car) not too hard to get to from the hotel. If you want to order pizza the desk had a convenient list of places to order from.
