Pros: Friendly and helpful staff - both front desk and valet; helpful with directions and made a couple of good restaurant recommendations;
Location convenient for an event my wife and I attended during our stay and the valet shuttle included at no additional cost was helpful.
Nice breakfast offerings.
Cons: While I got lucky with a dynamite parking spot in front of the hotel for the weekend and didn't need to move my car, the notion of valet parking for $15 per night was distasteful (I know it can be much more in major coastal cities).
Sunday morning breakfast should not end at 10 a.m. - it should run at least until 11.
Pros: The room was so luxurious & the staff was amazing! The free breakfast was delicious! We loved staying at the Hyatt! Would definitely recommend & stay there again!

Pros: The location was great, easy access from the interstate and very close to downtown. The staff was very friendly. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable.

Cons: Not worth anywhere near the money we paid. Really nothing to do in the nearby area, and the hotel is in desperate need of renovation. Staff was a bit "ho-hum" about everything. Pool was freezing cold and way too deep for younger kids - 9'0" in the deep end, going down sharply from 3'0" in the shallow end. My daughter is an intermediate swimmer and was confined to 1/3rd of the pool due to the depth. The "Video Arcade" features mostly broken games and there is no change machine. The term "Restaurant" is also a strong word.

Pros: It was very quiet and the staff was very pleasant. It is also convenient to the airport and has free shuttle service.
Pros: Besides being close to the airport and having a "free" breakfast, I really cannot say anything good about this place.

Cons: My room was right across from the ice machine and it was very loud. I would put a door on the ice machine area and put a more sound proof door on the those rooms
Pros: Great value for a clean, comfortable room. It's not the nicest hotel, but they have thought of the essentials. The hotel is right by the airport, which was great for our early departure. Otherwise, it's about 15-20 minutes to get into the downtown area but the drive is easy.
Cons: Everything was pretty nice. If I had to comment on one thing, the room appeared updated but the bathroom was a bit dated. It was still clean and functional, but cramped for my wife and I.
