Excellent Atlantic Ocean and city views.

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 24, 2013

From the time you book your reservation until you check out, you are treated very well by any
Hyatt hotel. They will even call you prior to your stay to confirm your arrival and departure time.
The Hyatts which I've stayed at have all been top-of-the-line, starting with the beautiful lobbies.
Ample parking next to the hotel in a fairly secure and lit lot was a bonus. And our roomfor was most spacious, with almost a "suite" like atmosphere without the suite price. Hyatts pride themselves
on their fine linens which you sleep on as well as the fine toiletries in the baths. The days of
old, uncomfortable mattresses are gone. Very comfortable and enjoyable beds outfitted with fine linens and fluffy pillows can be expected as the norm in Hyatts. Add a couple Turkish towel
bathrobes for after you shower / bath, as you feel like royalty. Daily newspapers are to be expected also.

Unique Quality: The Ft. Lauderdale Hyatt Regency at Pier 66 has a fabulous location, with the water taxi of Ft. Lauderdale stopping close by. This water taxi has a reasonable price for all ages and you can hop on and off it as many times as you wish all day long to enjoy various spots around the city. (Adults $20, children ages 5-11 $13, children under 5 free, and seniors $17)
The hotel itself has a commanding view of the Atlantic Oceanwith gorgeous views of the sunrise over the Atlantic and is situated in the "high rent" district of the entire town. Gazing from our top floor room, we could see numerous yachts on the various canals.
In fact, it has easy access to the marina on the Intercoastal Waterway.
The hotel has a lower level dedicated to conventions with a pre-convention open area for mixing and mingling. Spacious, light and airy, and overlooking the lush tropical pool and garden area, it certainly is a nice beginning to a business meeting. The lobby itself has recently been redecorated and adjoins a nice lounge / bar area. Various shops offer clothing, accessories, toiletries, etc as well as snacks. A Sunday brunch high atop the Hyatt is a must with its luscious entries and the view of the entire city and the Atlantic.
The Hyatt's website has so many nice professional photos and I will give you one web link.

Priceline near the cruise docks

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 16, 2012

I saw some complaints about this hotel on Trip Advisor from Priceline customers but really for $85 per night do you expect that they will be giving you the nicest room in the hotel? I was extremely pleased, mainly because I knew that $85 booking regularly would have gotten me a roach motel somewhere way north of where we stayed.

I'm guessing the nicer rooms are in the 17 story tower, certainly they would have a nicer view of the ocean. We were put in a room near the pool on the ground floor, we had a little patio outside our sliding glass door but no ocean view since the hotel is not on the beach.

Unique Quality: We didn't spend much time at the hotel having arrived at around midnight, getting up early for the hubby's swim race and then having to check out by noon. For our purposes it was great, the bed was comfortable, the shower had hot water and that was all I needed for such a brief stay.

The location for a pre cruise stay is good, it's just over the causeway from Port Everglades. When we asked about walking to the cruiseport the staff laughed at us, apparently no one does it although technically it is walkable. We did walk from the cruise port back to near the Hyatt when our cruise was finished but we didn't have luggage, the causeway is a bridge over one of the waterways so there is a big incline.

There was shampoo, lotion, bath gel, soap and toothpaste in the bathroom, there was a hair dryer and in room safe.

There is a free beach shuttle, no shuttle to the airport and a $7 per person shuttle to the cruise port. Estimated taxi cost to the cruise pier is $10-15. There is a Sun Trolley stop across the street that will take you the the beaches and other tourist areas, there is also a water taxi stop.

Directions: near Port Everglades

very poor - avoid this place

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 20, 2007

First room I was placed in was infested with ants. Second room had an 8ft puddle of soaked carpet coming from the broken air conditioner and smelt like raw sewage. Rooms are in very poor condition for a "resort" like this and the common areas are in desperate need of renovation. There is a large renovation project underway that makes the entire front desk area a complete pain to get in and out of (Oct 07 time frame). Parking lot flooded during a mid-day thunderstorm. That night there was a charity event - the valets tripled parked cars behind parked cars completely blocking in 80 to 100 vehicles. To top it off the fire alarm went off around 10:20 PM - they shut off the sirens but EVERY speaker in the entire complex beeped loudly every 5 seconds for over 2 hours. They were were unable to turn off the beeping which could be heard throughout the entire property. When I called to ask why the alarms were still beeping every 5 seconds after 2 hours the front desk staff simply said "sorry we're working on it" and hung up. A very poorly run and managed hotel - stay somewhere else when visiting Ft. Lauderdale.

Unique Quality: The marina next to the hotel is a great place to see some amazing yachts

The nicest view of the sunset

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 23, 2005

There is a bar at the top of the hotel. It spins around and makes one revolution per hour. You can enjoy the nicest view of the Fort Lauderdale with its beautiful streets, intracoastal water, downtown, and of course the Ocean. Watch the sunset and sip a cocktail.

Unique Quality: I saw the Queen Mary II departing. it is very huge!

Kind of pricey . . . But keep your eyes open . . . If you are not on a strict schedule, you can get some good deals

Unique Quality: Will be staying here in January of 2001 . . . Will update after this . . . Last time I was in Lauderdale, we did go to the Pier Top Lounge at The Hyatt Regency Pier Sixty-Six . . . great revolving lounge with live jazz and dancing seasonally Tuesday through Thursday and Saturdays . . . Great boat watching . . . More like yachts . . . My husband is going to love it
